Deep cries unto deep.
There is a very deep, special to God and sacred place which He designed within the heart of man that if that place gets filled and occupied by anyone or anything other than LOVE FOR GOD, it creates a barrier and a wall between us and Him.
Father said to me – “find the deepest desire of any man then you shall find the god that he is affectionate about, pursues and worship.”
What drives you in life?
What are your motives with God?
Is He only a spiritual genie on command that you run to or need when you want something or is He your deepest desire?
I had a very deep and heartbreaking encounter with Jesus and the Father recently and the Father wept bitterly through my spirit. I could feel His deep pain and then the Lord Jesus Christ took me aside and He was sad and very grieved.
He said to me – “My people are forcing Me to judge their motives.”
Jesus taught me a very powerful lesson in this chapter of John 6. After that He fed the multitudes through that glorious miracle these people pursued God with lustful selfish motives because they were driven by their own desires not because they wanted to know the Lord intimately as His true disciples.
They wanted to make Jesus king because as the Lord said, they wanted to crown Him king of their lustful desires.
Lust in the heart of man is whenever I come into your presence and I want to see how I can somehow use, abuse or manipulate you to get something from you or to enrich myself at your expense.
John 6:14 Then seeing the miracle that Jesus did, those men said, This is truly the Prophet, the One coming into the world.
15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they would come and take Him by force, that they might make Him a king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain alone by Himself.
26 Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, You seek Me not because you saw the miracles, but because you ate the loaves and were filled.
27 Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for that food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of man will give you. For God the Father sealed Him.
28 Then they said to Him, What shall we do that we might work the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that you believe on Him whom He has sent.
The choice is set before us beloved. Do we want to gorge ourselves at the table of the god of this world through self exaltation unto self destruction as we continue to indulge the lust of our sinful flesh, the pride of our fallen self and the greed of our corrupted hearts or are we going to humble ourselves and come before the Lord and acknowledge that we have sinned even pursuing Him many times with impure selfish motives?
Personally I had to repent before the Lord when I realised that I too was guilty of these things and my heart was full of lust. God showed me even at one time that I was using Him to get to the fulfilment of the promises and I was abusing Him and pursuing Him through impure motives.
May we all find ourselves completely exposed in the light of His blessed truth. It’s a wonderful thing to undergo open heart surgery in the Presence of the great Physician who himself is the God of love.
John 8:31 Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.
32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered Him, We are Abraham’s seed and were never in bondage to anyone. How do you say, You will be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Whoever practices sin is the slave of sin.
35 And the slave does not abide in the house forever, but the Son abides forever.
36 Therefore if the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
Worship is an act of admiration towards the object of your affection. It is an outward expression of an inward affection. The one who has won your heart is the one that you will worship. He is the one that will control and rule your desires. He is the one you will be passionate about. He is the one through whom your heart will be enriched because he will become your treasure. The person to whom you have surrendered all desire shall be your conqueror.
Father asked me – “How can My love be shed abroad in your heart by My Holy Spirit when your heart is so full of desires for other things?”
He then showed me a cup and asked – “How can I fill a cup when it’s already full?”
Therefore to be taken by the Father through a serious and deep housecleaning on the inside of an idolatrous heart creates the space that’s needed to be set on fire with the holy passion of His burning love and opens the way for Him to invade and occupy that deepest place that can only belong to Him.
Father said that His only quest and deepest desire has always been just to capture the heart of man.
If He is your God, then worship Him and let Him set up His habitation inside of you. If you allow God to penetrate your depths then He will become your sure foundation and then you will be able to worship Him out of that deepest and most sacred place.
GIVE THE PLACE THAT CAN ONLY BELONG TO HIM BACK TO HIM FOR HE IS A JEALOUS LOVER AND LET DEEP CRY UNTO DEEP.
