I Bid You Come

The Master calleth you…

I bid you come

There are many distractions in this world that have held you back…

Still I bid you come

It is not too late, though you have set me aside for a better time…

I bid you come

There are bills to be paid, and laundry to do, and if you will just wait for me to finish this class…

Still I bid you come

It’s tax time again, and time moves so fast; I just got this job, and what about my past?

Be Still

I Bid You…

Come

“Ho every one who thirsts come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in fatness. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.” Isaiah 55:1-3

“Come to me all who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

“–If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” Mark 8:34-36

“Peter began to say to him, ‘Lo, we have left everything, and followed you.’ Jesus said, ‘Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. But many that are first will be last, and the last first.'” Mark 10:28-31

“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10

“O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!” Psalms 95:1-2

“O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!” Psalms 95:6-7

 

Be Still

So many want quick answers…

Hurry–Hurry–please answer my prayer! Often the answer is already there within. The Word is nigh thee, even in thine heart. (See Rom. 10:8)

I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. Quick friendships are shallow and have little value. It takes time spent together to build trust–to build a relationship that lasts.

The woman of Samaria, that came to the well didn’t know Me, but as I sat and talked with her she revealed to Me what she knew and had heard of Me; it allowed Me to clear her misconceptions, which made room for revelation and trust. It was then that she could receive–truly the answer to her heart’s cry.

She had many men in her life and was still empty. But in spending time with Me she was filled, and in joy and delight ran to tell all she knew of the one she had found–the Messiah. (See Jn. 4:4-42)

Come and draw from the deep well

It begins within

Commune in your heart with Me and be still

Know that I am God

Find that I AM a Fountain of Life

I will be found by those who diligently seek Me

With all of your heart

Be Still

“Be still and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” Ps. 46:10

“And 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.” Heb. 11:6

” How precious is thy steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Ps. 36:7-9

“Behold, God is my salvation: I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Is. 12:2-3
