ICU – I SEE YOU (LORD)

I SEE YOU

ICU = I SEE YOU
When I look to Jesus, as Lord, as Healer, it’s like putting myself into the ICU (Intensive Care Unit). I will get healed up, be it emotionally, or spiritually, or physically… by giving focus where it needs be! ON MY LORD!

I SEE YOU, LORD! (smile)

So how do I SEE HIM?

In His Word….  I read each verse with the mindset that I want to SEE HIM, KNOW HIM, FIND SOMETHING MORE TO WORSHIP ABOUT HIM.

In His People…  I look at them with the mindset that each one can reveal something of my Lord in their lives, for He, Jesus, lives within His People.

In His Creation… I look at the marvelous, intricate design of the Master Designer, be it in weather, the beauty of mountains or seas, in animals, all that He has made including cells or nucleus-es, all with such purpose and precision.  I realize if God put so much thought in each of these things that he created FOR ME, He put that much more thought into making ME. I am important to Him.

In His Wisdom…  Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, yet if I do not SEE HIM, how can I then obtain this wisdom?  If I do not SEE HIM, then how can I FOLLOW HIM?  If I do not SEE HIM, then how can I  know what choices to make?

In Christian Music… Worship, it’s words and melodies, brings me to SEE HIM quickly and easily, for it bypasses all the filters of my mind, and enables God to communicate Spirit (He) to spirit (Me).

How to SEE?
Everywhere… Really…  I SEE YOU, LORD.

The key is to become God-CONSCIOUS.  Not self-conscious, or money-conscious. Do you know that those in an ICU, are neither of these? They are unusually ‘unconscious of self” and “money isn’t the issue! Getting well is!”  They are there to GET WELL AND HEALED UP!

I SEE YOU is as the ICU.

PRAYER:

Lord,

Make me aware of you throughout my day. Reveal yourself to me, that I may see you.  I will acknowledge your presence with me…in every moment of my day, through busy and slow times and the good and bad times.  And yes, Lord, I want to see you even more, to prepare my heart for your soon coming.

Conclusion:

SEEING HIM (YOUR LORD) Will MEAN HOPE AND HEALING TO YOU!

Just as being in an ICU of a hospital gives a person the best chance at survival, so putting yourself into the ICU, will improve your chance at survival through the days ahead.  A good way to prepare is to go into Psalm 91, and SEE HIM within that passage of scripture.

The world is an uncertain place, as is the future, but I SEE YOU, LORD!!  AND YOU HAVE IT ALL UNDER CONTROL! (smile)

Thanks for the ICU.

GAIN A PERSPECTIVE WITH ONE SENTENCE

I  WANT TO GIVE YOU A WORD OF EXHORTATION…  ACTUALLY A SENTENCE

It is found in Proverbs 30:5.  If you will get this into your heart and mind and spirit and soul, then it will cause doubts and fears, and questionnings and double-mindedness to disappear in your life. It will bring about faith, to realize it’s truth.

 It is one power-packed short sentence.  Ready for it?

Here it is:

EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE.

That means it is true, flawless, not corrupt, trustworthy, without error, sure, tested and tried, not opinion that can be changed. ….. simply PURE.

So when you open your bible up, and it declares, “Thus saith the Lord”… or it says this or that…written on its pages…  it is NOT OPINION. If it calls something evil, it is evil. If it says something is good, it is good. If it tells you a promise, that promise will be kept. If it gives a command, that command is to be obeyed.

 It need not be “questionned” for God himself beareth witness to his word, saying:

EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE.

It says “EVERY”.  Not some of God’s word is true, and some is not!!!

If He said it, it is so.

That’s it…. say it over and over today, until you RECEIVE IT and BELIEVE IT!  That short sentence could impact your future greatly, so take heed to what is being spoken by Him and shared by me.

EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE.

LIKE HIM

God whispered to me…

MEASURE YOURSELF BY JESUS

Do you LOVE   LIKE Him?  

 Do you OBEY ME    LIKE Him?  

Do you SEEK ME    LIKE Him? 

Do you have SELF-CONTROL    LIKE Him? 

Then, I, your Father, have work to do.

Submit to my hand.

What Father God is encouraging you to do is:

Don’t compare yourself to OTHERS… or to the world’s standard(s)…

but to JESUS CHRIST, His Son. He is your standard and mine.

He is who you are to look to…to imitate.

In other words,

Do you love God and others, as Jesus loved HIS Father and those around himself? and loved YOU?  

Jesus’s words: “…love one another, even as I have loved you” John 13:34

Do you obey Father, as Jesus did. He, not doing anything he wasn’t LED to do, or doing anything His Father God wouldn’t approve of? Are you self-ruled? If so, you are not LIKE Christ. Christ did not “self-rule” EVER! 

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God,did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.And being found in appearance as a man,he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross! Phil 2:5-8

Do you seek the Father, as Jesus did, going alone to be with Him, and practicing His presence every moment of your life? Do you ENJOY a “relationship” and do you have “intimacy” with God, as Jesus did? You can! Believers have God residing within themselves, to commune with, Spirit to spirit.

“You are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell IN THEM, and walk IN THEM, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people”  II Cor 6:16

Do you have self-control as Jesus had? Do you turn the other cheek?  not grow bitter or unforgiving though mistreated? avoid being prideful when dealing with the weaknesses in others? Do you avoid harmful substances or bad habits which oppress you and keep you in bondage? Do you avoid sexual immorality and impurity? Continue to give any iniquity over to the Lord, until He brings you completely into freedom. God’s will must become your will in this process. And Jesus pleads in your behalf:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” Luke 23:34

YOU CAN – BE – LIKE HIM.

Here’s a verse that will help.

Actually Jesus’ own words of John 6:57

“Just as the Living Father SENT ME, and I LIVE  because of the Father –

so THE ONE who FEEDS ON ME  will LIVE because of Me.”
