Back to basics

Jeremiah 11:14 “So do not pray for this people or lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not hear them in the time that they cry out to Me because of their trouble.”

Leader, this (scripture) is a dreadful place to be. I bless you with never having God turn His back on you. God is 100% love. He is also 100% holy and righteous. I bless you with the kind of relationship with Him where you daily taste His goodness without mistakenly regarding Him as a ‘softy’. I bless you with a revelation of His holiness and justice without mistakenly regarding Him as wrathful. I bless you with experiencing the Father heart of God who protects His children, teaching them how to draw close to Him who is both extravagantly supportive and utterly different. I bless you with obeying Him because you love Him and you want to please Him. And then I bless you with experiencing the wonder of getting to know more of Him, of being allowed access to more of His mysteries and partnering with Him in strategic affairs that change the course of the world.

Ephesians 3:15-19 “… that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all His followers what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.”
