Seek My Face

Displace Worry

Question taken from, Graham Cooke’s Soaking Prayer Series Part One

Becoming the Beloved

What specific overture is the Lord making to you at this time?

Overture defined: an opening or initiating move toward negotiations, 

a new relationship, an agreement, etc.; a formal or informal proposal or offer

Below I am dialogue journaling with God through devotional material I was reading January 19, 2015

From Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (quoting devotional for January 19 / my words):

Jesus: Seek My Face, and you will find more than you ever dreamed possible. Let Me displace worry at the center of your being. I am a supersaturated cloud, showering Peace into the pool of your mind. My nature is to bless.Your nature is to receive with thanksgiving. This is a true fit, designed before the foundation of the world. Glorify Me by receiving My blessings gratefully.

Me: All you require of me is to be open to receive?

Jesus: I am the goal of all your searching. When you seek Me, you find Me and are satisfied. When lesser goals capture your attention, I fade into the background of your life. I am still there watching and waiting: but you function as if you were alone.

Me: Forgive me, Lord, for being spiritually blind and distracted. Open my eyes spiritually to"see" your unseen Prescense. I have often felt forgotten and alone, but I recognize now that was never true. You have always been there loving me even when I could not love myself. 

Jesus: Actually, My light shines on every situation you will ever face. Live radiantly by expanding your focus to include Me in all your moments. Let NOTHING dampen your search for Me.

Me: Abba, open my eyes, mind and heart so I can “see” what I’ve been missing….the JOY of experiencing Your Presence in ALL aspects of my life! Thank you that Your Presence is the promised constant in my life. I ask for this enhanced vision on the authority of Jesus’ name, Amen

Scripture References:

The peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (Philippiams 4:7).

You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13)
