About *Him*

"Great is Thy faithfulness.Your mercies are new every morning. You never let go...You never leave me. You are a Friend who loves at all times. You stick closer to me than anybody else. Your ways aren't like our ways: they are higher and better. You give wisdom to the simple. You give knowledge to the humble. You build up the broken down. You repair the holes in my emotions. You make all things new: in Your perfect time. You still heal. You still do miracles.

You are a kind and fair Judge. You *will* bring good justice to the earth one day. You *will* make the crooked paths straight. You *will* heal that which is broken. You already lift up the downcast. You give hope and life to the near-dead. You can raise people from death. You can also raise them up into (new) life: from their dead spiritual condition.

You are very powerful. You're called the Most High: the Highest of all. You are above *all*. You are great and greatly to be praised. The fear (honor, respect, recognition of Your immense grandeur and power) of You is the beginning of knowledge. In You is life. You *are* Life.

You are the Supreme life giver...our Creator...our God..the *only* God. You are the *one* true God. Besides You, there is no other. Nothing, and no one (can) compare to You.

You are the Lord of all lords and the King of all the kings. None can compare to You. You stand alone: above all.

You are Wisdom. You are Forgiveness. You are Compassion. You are Mercy...Love...Grace...Truth...Majesty...Justice...Power...Kindness...Spirit...Life...and Friend.

You are the Friend of the friendless. You are the Father of the fatherless. You are the compassion of (to) the outcast. You are the humble King.

You are 'unassuming'...yet You are all-consuming. You are Fire, and you are gushing Waters of life. You burn and You refine. You wash and You refresh. You ignite and You flood. You make a fire in our spirits, and You water us with Your living Spiritual waters. Water and Fire.

You build up and You pull down. (To everything there is a season.) You reveal...you hide. You open...You shut. You are angry...You forgive. You cry...You laugh.

You...created us (humans) in Your image. We are like You, Father God. You are our Spiritual Father. You are our Father up in Heaven...the One who will be with us forever in eternity.

You speak in the silence...and also in the thunder. You move across the earth in a mighty whirlwind...and also a delicate breeze. You are so worthy to be honoured and respected and praised and just adored! You are worthy to be loved!

We cannot see You yet...but we can sense and (sometimes) feel Your presence. We can sense You are near to us. We can (sometimes) hear You, as You speak into our spirits...into the 'spirit of our minds'.

You give us hope to go on in hard times. You give us hope when all is lost...when it is too hard to keep living. You keep us.

You are Truth.

Sometimes (often) we turn away from You. We don't really know You. We think (*assume*) to know You, but often; we do not. Honesty is the first step to knowing God. Humble yourselves. Admit your needs. Tell the truth! Quit playing games. Admit your need: your emptiness.

Be humble. It's okay to be broken...to be crushed. It's okay to feel defeated,(like) a failure: (like) a *loser*. This shows you are not proud. This shows your Father in Heaven that you are admitting your weakness and your human fraility. This is the human condition: the state of all mankind (all 'humankind').

Man without God is a walking corpse. He is walking death. He is a zombie: propelled by a combination of his human, sinful nature and demonic spiritual lineage.

Before a person is 'born of the Spirit', they are truly (the) *walking dead*...(or) *dead men walking*." ©

He Is Jealous for You

"I am jealous for your love."

"So many things take your attention. They take your time. They steal your thoughts. They are many... and they are relentless. These 'things' are often considered (as) 'good'. Music, computer talks, study, family matters, working, playing, laughing, and even praying...are all good in themselves.

But they are too 'bossy'. Things can control. Things *do* control. Things are considered 'mammon'...and things become idols...or things of worship and adoration.

Things can become addictive, habitual, mind numbing...and soul-snatching. Be wary when things run your life.

*I* am the Ruler of your life...if you have given Me that control. I am the authority...the one in charge...the Lord of your life. (Or, am I?)

Yes, you have claimed me as your 'Lord and Saviour'. Yet you continue to ignore and defy Me. How long shall I bear this? My heart is grieved. I am desiring your voluntary love towards Me. I will not coerce you to love Me. Never! I desire affection that is willing...not a bondage.

Freely come to Me...and freely love Me. I make *no* robots! I search for broken, shattered lives...with broken, shattered hearts. I am near to the broken-hearted. I desire to come into these empty hearts...into *your* heart.

You need Me. I created you (all human beings) to be with Me...to have a void only I can fill. I am your God and your true love. I love you as no other! I love you (each and every one of you) with (the)deepest devotion and desire for good.

My love is not of this world. My love is supernatural: *above* the natural. It is not of this world." ©
