Here I go again… break time… I have not finished my studying on Abram and his journey with God yet. I have not even had the time to read much of the scripture that introduces him to us at first. I want to do the scriptures justice and be knowledgeable of what I am sharing so I am going to wait one more day to continue my series on Prayer – Abram 2 (Abraham). The below is some good thoughts though and I wanted to share them with you. I wrote this earlier this year or late last year and know you will enjoy and it will be thought provoking. Enjoy!
Do you Expect to hear from God throughout the day? Or at all during the day? I have discovered, as scripture says in James 4:8 “draw close to Me and I will draw close to you.” When I began to seek God through His Word and prayer – I began to hear Him speak to my heart! It is the most awesome experience to ask – seek – and find! Sometimes I am brought to tears – not tears of sadness but tears of joy and awe! The Creator actually knows my name and cares about what I care about!
The more I learn about God the more I want to know Him! The more I know the more I want to be with Him. I will never be able to exhaust knowing God! He is Eternal and beyond knowing completely! However, 1 John 3:2-3 says … “2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
We shall be as He is? Really? That is very hard for this finite mind to wrap around. However, I believe scripture and this song is an awesome reminder of what God says! The first two are videos that someone has made and put Sandi Patty’s song to it. They are quite interesting and thought provoking too. The 2nd one has lyrics on the video. The 3rd video is just Sandi singing at a Gaither Gathering. Either is fantastic and there is none like Sandi Patty. You get Sandi Patty singing about her Lord and she can convince you that she loves Him tremendously! Enjoy!
1st Video – We Shall Behold Him – Sandi Patty
2nd Video – We Shall Behold Him – Sandi Patty (with lyrics)
3rd Video – We Shall Behold Him – Sandi Patty (Gaither Gathering)
