Key Scripture – “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” – John 10:10
Key Thought – “Realising that God wants you is simply a change of heart perspective to a see God as the author of a creation founded in love and desire to be with you.”
We have been born into a lie of separation, to guard, defend and amour ourselves so that we stay safe. We build walls around our hearts to keep ourselves from hurt and withdraw ourselves, so we don't have to deal with those things that we don't like. This separation is ingrained into us that we don't even realise it.
If we want to truly come to know who we are a good place to start is the truth that God has never separated himself from us. It is easy to think that all we see, feel, hear, smell and touch are the sum of our existence but God’s truth is that we are accepted and valued by God and that each of us are wonderfully and beautifully designed and made.
Realising that God has never separated himself from you has the potential to break you free . For God is inviting you to dive into his river of life and experience the perfection of communion with him.
He is awakening you to live in the fullness of your creation. The truth is that God is pursing you.
That you are the delight of his heart and his desire is to be with you. You are in fact loved greater than you could ever imagine. In the same way he came and showed himself to the first murderer, he comes to you and speaks to you. This may come as an extraordinary revelation that God is searching you out and seeking after you. That he has never withdrawn himself from you and that he is after you. It breaks the power of the lie of separation, the lie of a wall between God and us. We are so bound up with lies and illusions that the ordinary of God's pursuit of us is overshadowed by our feelings of unworthiness. We need to let go of what we feel and start to believe all God says about us.
Realising that God wants you is simply a change of heart perspective to a see God as the author of a creation founded in love and desire to be with you. Ultimately, it is a vision from the bondage of soul thinking to the liberation of God's unconditional love. We don't have to wait to be good enough or spiritual enough to realise that God has never separated himself from us. The fact is simple, that we separated ourselves from him in our shame.
The freedom that our hearts seek is found in God, in the very moment of his value and acceptance of us. God is pursing us and calling us with his Holy Spirit in every thought, each feeling and every connection with our heart.
It is embracing the call of a pursuing God that awakens our hearts to who we really are.
