Can You SEE with the EYES of Your HEART ?
When I came to know HIM in May of 1985, it was as my JUDGE. I learned firsthand back then, what it meant to Fear the Lord. I Repented of my Sin, but I still felt alone.
I realized I have a friend, who has walked in front of me….leading me. Who has walked next to me…..supporting me and sometimes carrying me when I am tired. Who has walked behind me….protecting me. But most of all, HE lives inside of me…..I now understand that I am never alone.
I have studied HIS names as all of you have through the years. HE is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace, Eternal Father, Lord, Savior, Jesus the Son of God…….Y’shua Hamachiach –Jesus the Messiah of Israel and the world.
Yet two other titles meant the most to me, because they express the essence of who Jesus is both in the past and in the future. He Is the LAMB who was Slain for my sins, and the LION who is Coming Again to take me home.
Yes, He is all of the later and much more. But when I get quiet before HIM and ponder HIS words to us in the Scriptures I am humbled by the one recurring theme that I rarely acknowledge or understand the depths of.
That HE is a FATHER and we, you and I are HIS children. HE loves each one of us so very much that not only the Angels Rejoice when we came to know Christ. But the Father Sings over us.
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
Michael Card described the Faith we have during our journey home.
“To hear with my heart, to see with my soul. To be guided by a hand I cannot hold. To trust in a way that I cannot see. That’s what faith must be.”
