Meditation Thought: “Without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you, ask and ye shall receive: FAITH! Faith enough to seek, to knock, to ask – that is the one requirement to enter into the Kingdom – to enter into that beautiful, peaceful garden – a portable garden, which goes with you wherever you are. You carry your haven with you as a turtle carries his own shelter.
But it will do you no good if you do not withdraw into it, using it.
You must take the time to seek, to knock, to ask. Seek the Word, ask for guidance, knock at the door of the dwelling of the Holy Spirit.
Seek – every moment – the hidden meaning, the hidden beauty, the hidden Truth, the hidden need, the hidden solution to that need.
Believe: You will not be disappointed. Persevere: many saints have gone before you to assure you of the joy of obedience to the Father, of faith in the Son, of the power of the Holy Spirit at work in you to do the Father’s will and the Father’s works, revealing the Son and bringing you into His embrace.
Dare to dream! Dare to hope! Dare to love openly!
Pray, think, act: all in loving kindness based on truth revealed by Word, by inner guidance, by outward circumstances.
The heavens reveal the glory of God.
As does the tiny seed.
God is everywhere, anywhere.
You do not see Him?
Then trust that He is near
and the next moment – the next movement – the next scene
Shall give you knowledge of His Presence.
Where there was pain,
there is peace.
Where there was despair,
there is hope.
Where there was sadness,
there is joy.
Where there was sin,
there is righteousness.
Where there was apathy and hate,
there is love.
The flow of God’s cleansing grace
the Truth, the Way, the Life
For you – for all who seek the place where the Living Water flows.
That place is revealed when you turn from self and seek, and knock, and ask.
