…and thy God my God. (Ruth 1:16)
The above statement was the confession of a lady in the bible. I find this statement very insightful and key to walking with Jesus. As believers we must come to know that God’s attention is on ME. We must know that though God is the God of the Universe, containing billions of People, He is personally my God. He knows me personally and has a direct relationship with ME. He so knows me up to the extent that He says
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered (Matt. 10:30)
Wow! He even numbered the hairs of my head. What else? We must learn that the promises of the scriptures are written for ME.
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; (1 Cor. 3:21)
He says HE knows only you. God knows only ME. Haven’t you wondered why the bible (especially the Old Testament) talks so much about the children of Israel? One would be tempted to think there weren’t other people on the face of the earth or God wasn’t concerned about them. But truly He was. He was concerned about the World, through Israel. Through His focus on Israel, He was able to produce the Messiah to save the world. So like-wise He is concerned about the world through me. He knows if He has ME, He can through ME, have the World.
He is not just the God of Abraham, or the God of Elijah, He is MY God. He is the God of Samson.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. (Ps. 139:16)
Everyone who has a diary, writes things which are personal to them alone. The above verse tells us that God wrote the issues about US (ME) individually in his diary. Indeed, He may be the God of the Universe, He is personally my Lord. This understanding would help us know HE is always for us. We dwell continually in His presence. I must know the bible was written specifically to me. How blessed are we.
He doesn’t just want to be described by the name of your Pastor, or your General Overseer. He wants to be described as your God. God doesn’t want any-man to know him through another man. He wants to build a personal relationship with every man. Though God had always addressed the children of Israel through speaking to Moses, yet at some-point, he told Moses bring the people to meet me themselves, I want them to know me themselves and not just through you.
And the Lord said to Moses, Go to the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes, (Exodus 19:10)
And be ready against the third day: for on the third day the Lord will come down in the sight of all the people upon Mount Sinai. (Exodus 19:11)
The Psalmist said, God’s mind is full of me. He is deeply in Love with me. I didn’t work to get it, I earned it as a gift and I can’t do anything to keep it. He just loves me. He is MY God. He wants to hear ME speak. He is MY God. He always has time for ME. He is MY God. He is MINE. Jesus, the only begotten of the father, also confirmed this.
….I ascend unto my Father, and your father; and to my God and your God. (John 20:17)
Wow! What an interesting possession. I can scream it loud…He is MY God. As we continue in fellowship with the spirit we will grow in this revelation.
This was the agony of Jesus on the cross…
“And at the Ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is being interpreted, MY GOD, MY GOD, why hast thou forsaken me? (Mark 15:34)” (emphasis mine)
Of all the pains at the cross, losing the sweetness of the possession of God was the most painful to Jesus. What a priceless possession! No wonder Jesus did all that he did during his earth walk for God was with Him.
My friend, today, God wants us to build a personal relationship with Him, He wants you to know He is yours. Walk in this revelation and enjoy all the sweetness of being connected to Heaven.
I CALL YOU BLESSED
