I heard the Lord say this morning that He was sending times of Refreshing upon those who draw near to Him with their hearts this morning.
There are many who draw near to God with their lips but yet are withdrawn from Him with their hearts. Father wants our hearts involved in the situation more than just lip service to Him. We must be in a place where the sacrifice of our lips in Praise is matching the Words which are issuing forth from our hearts. God is always looking at the issues of the heart and not our mindset.
“These people draw near Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts hold off and are far away from Me.” Matthew 15:8
So often in the past, I can remember being in the church and doing the same old thing every single Sunday morning, almost like the routine one does when they get up and get ready before work each day, it becomes almost a morning ritual.
God isn’t after our morning rituals and routines, (while there is nothing wrong with having those things), God wants the first fruits of our hearts each morning. As you give Him that part of your day for just simple fellowship, something incredible is going to come forth as Waves Of His Presence and His Spirit begin to pour forth upon you like Rain!
The Rain Of His Presence is dropping this morning as the Dew upon the Mountains (Song of Solomon 5:2), and waves of Refreshing are going to come upon the Hearts of those who draw near to Him from a place of an earnest desire for intimacy with the King.
If you’ve found yourself feeling distanced from Him over the last few weeks, you may have inadvertently withdrawn your heart somehow, if that’s the case, just redirect your focus back to your First Love, and Boldly enter into His Presence. As you do Waves Of His Presence will cover your life and bring the Refreshing upon you that your Heart so Desires!
“For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, THOUGHTS AND PLANS FOR WELFARE AND PEACE AND NOT FOR EVIL, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] AND FIND ME WHEN YOU SEARCH FOR ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART.” Jeremiah 29:11-13
