Daily Read – Jeremiah 23:21-25:38; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17; Psalm 84:1-12; Proverbs 25:15
For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
Your eyes have not seen, your ear has not heard, and your heart cannot fathom the things I have prepared because you love Me.
When you received the gift of Jesus Christ into your life, you walked into an eternity filled with glorious and lavish treasures. Your natural mind cannot grasp nor comprehend such things because they are spiritually discerned and received. The Holy Spirit searches the deep things and brings illumination and understanding to you.
As you embrace the revelation of heaven, the things of earth will lose power in your life. The desire for earthly riches and wealth will transform from selfish ambition to that of Kingdom purpose. You will come to realize that you are an ambassador from heaven sent here to take My Kingdom by force. You are a spiritual being having a temporary human experience because your residence is in heaven.
I am your sun and shield and I protect you with brilliant rays of My Glory. I surround you with grace, favor, honor, and heavenly wonder, not only in the life to come, but right here in the now. In this very day, you have the full weight of My Kingdom reinforcing and backing you up.
As you walk uprightly, honoring who I am in your life, I will withhold no good thing. I long to extravagantly bless you because you are My heir through My Son Christ Jesus.
There is no place like home!
Precious Holy Spirit, as the Word says in 2 Corinthians 2:10, I desire for You to reveal hidden mysteries to me. I have not received the spirit of the world, but of Christ, so I ask You to show Me those things that are from Him. As an act of my will, I choose to discern the things of God from the place of my spirit and not from my natural mind. I submit my natural mind and intellect to You. I do not want to process the things that You reveal through man's wisdom, but through Yours, comparing spiritual things to spiritual. I so desire to know more fully what Father has prepared for me. I love Him so!!!
