Isaiah 55:6 - "Seek the Lord while you can find Him. Call on Him now while He is near."
We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near. We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His kingdom our top priority He will take care of everything else (see Matthew 6:33).
We can’t remain satisfied and contented with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth. “Enough is enough!”
Are we willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion?
This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first.
There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual.
HOLY HUNGER DRIVES US
This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level. Jesus states “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, uprightness, and right standing with God, shall be completely satisfied!" - Matthew 5:6 AMP
It’s time to remove all lids of limitations off, believe God for big things (see Ephesians 3:20-21). The promise is that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God’s glory (see Numbers 14:21 and Hab. 2:14).
The Spirit of God is stirring our soul and awaking our heart to seek deeper depths and higher heights. This is the time for us to go all out for Christ and the Kingdom of God. We don't hold back -- we surrender ourselves completely to the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The statement is so true -- deep is calling to deep (see Psalms 42:7).
"Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." - Isaiah 43:19
"You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve], which you have not known. They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them." - Isaiah 48:6-7
To proceed to the next new level we must advance and make progress.
"Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise redeeeming the time, because the days are evil." - Ephesians 5:14-16.
In this next new level we will began to grasp a higher clearer insight into the majesty of the Master. Prepare to behold the Living Lord Jesus in a much clearer way. It is time to taste the hidden manna reserved for overcomers revealed in :
Revelation 2:17 - "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat."
A FRESH NEW SEASON
God wants us back with Him, not distracted or lost in the daily "rubbish," or mundane natural surroundings, which attempt to keep us away from God's presence. God always wants us in His protective presence. In that pursuit, we find that it becomes an "abiding place" to be under the shadow of our Almighty Father's wings of love. In pursuit of the Father, we learn to trust Him!
God gets all the glory. We allow God's Holy Spirit to refresh us and bring us into a fresh NEW SEASON. In this preparation season, let us focus again upon the love of the Lord who gave us His supernatural power to reproduce HIS fruit, which will adjust all the surroundings, regardless of the circumstances.
HAVE WE MOVED AWAY FROM OUR PURSUIT OF OUR FATHER?
Obviously, now is the time to run hard after His heart! Now is the time to pursue our Love with Abba Father – our true First Love!
We seek the Father and not "busyness" to keep legalistic, religious rules. As we seek His PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE and not just the benefits of "His hand," we will find that the more we know Abba Father, the more we will be deeper in love with Him and His family!
"Matthew 7:8 AMP - "For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, the door will be opened."
We are in a new season of intense pursuit -- as we pursue Him now, we are assured our Father knows how to REVEAL TO US OUR DESTINY IN CHRIST!
