God Is Up Close and Personal

We stopped at one of those kiosks in the mall. A younger man came up to us and proceeded to test a fingernail buffer on my hand. We laughed and talked a little. Then I asked him where he was from. His reply was Israel to which our eyes lit up. Both my friend and I said we love Israel and pray for the country. I ministered to him that God had a marvelous plan for his life. He said “there is only one God.” I asked Jehovah? To which he replied I know you have your god. But there is only one God. I asked his name and told him I would be praying for him. The conversation was soon over and we were on our way. 

Such a strange encounter and yet there was heavenly activity going on all the while. Obviously God wants to speak to his heart. And obviously he had never thought about asking God about his life. We are blessed to know that our Lord is up close and personal. And wouldn’t He be? He is the Only Living God!

Oh beloved, rejoice! You are born again into a living faith. Your walk with the God of the Bible is lively – because Jesus is alive! He’s no longer a babe in the manger He’s a risen Savior! While we celebrate His birth – we cannot stop there. While we rejoice that He died on the cross for our sins we don’t stop there! You, beloved, are walking in victory today because God is alive! The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is your God! 

You’re not following the tenants of one in the grave. No, you are being built up into the strong and mighty warrior of the God who is alive! You are filled with His Spirit and you are anointed and appointed to live for Him all of your days! You are under His watchful care and every problem you have is being solved by the Only Living God! Your faith is real and when you encounter people your faith touches their lives just because of Who lives inside of you!

God loves you and He’s for you! It says so in the Bible but it’s more than that. You are in a relationship that is alive and powerful and wonderful! Run to the Lord this morning and thank Him for His unspeakable gift and allow Him to speak to your heart. And then walk in faith as you live in the Light of your Everlasting King!

Matthew 16:15-16 Then He asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

Jeremiah 10:10a But the LORD is the only true God. He is the living God and the everlasting King! 

I Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

I John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and He is eternal life.

In a Women’s meeting in 1983, I went up for prayer and to see if God had “anything for me”. The woman of God who was praying for people spoke over my life. She said these words: “You will write books. You can go to the bank on it. Rivers of living water will flow from your belly…”
