Pursue Me

What would have happened if Moses had not veiled his face at the peoples’ insistence? Repentance would have come. For what is brought to the light is revealed, and what is revealed will be cleansed.

Sin cannot stand in My Presence.

My Presence brings forth repentance.

Moses’ face shown with My Presence for he communed with Me and when he descended that mountain, My Presence remained upon Him; for I went with him.

When you come into My Presence it is not temporary–I go with you. But it is in the active communion with Me that My anointing flows; My Glory is revealed upon you.

Stay actively seeking, actively communing; even throughout your day.

Whatever chance may come, and whatever time you pursue. And, you will find that My Glory shines ever brighter as your spirit communes with Mine.

Deep calls to deep

Go for the glow–be actively seeking.

Be aglow in the Spirit.

Pursue Me!

“When Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the door of the tent, and the Lord would speak with Moses.” “Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.”  “And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'” Exodus 33:9, 11a, 14

“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tables of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God.

“And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil on his face; but whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and when he came out, and told the people of Israel what he was commanded, the people of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone; and Moses would put the veil upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.” Exodus 34:33-35

“Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions.

Savory Truth

The seasoning in one’s life is a delicate balance. For it is said that a person is “well seasoned” when he is mature in years and has lived a long life–seemingly to have gained much wisdom. But I tell you wisdom, that which comes from above, is not gained through years of living, but from time spent within close fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Wisdom is to be sought after–it is more valuable than gold.

Choice nuggets come from spending time at My feet and learning the heart of the Master from My Word. I AM revealed in My Word, but you truly will not recognize the different, subtle flavors or aspects of My person without first savoring them on your tongue. “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Ps. 34:8)

Speak forth My Word, whether through prayers, reading My Word aloud or sharing with a friend. The declaration will be sweet to the taste as honey. The subtle notes return to the ears, quickening your spirit within, as deep calls to deep. It is food for your soul–this, My friend, is true seasoning. The delicate balance of wisdom and life…

The one anchors

The other propels forward

Yet they do not contradict, but are in perfect balance, as is the Sword of the Spirit–rightly dividing soul and spirit with the Word of Truth.

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever; the ordinances of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.” Psalm 19:7-10

“Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.” Proverbs 16:24

“O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” Psalms 34:8

“But wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty or insincerity. And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James 3:17-18

“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.” Psalms 51:6

“My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.” Psalms 49:3

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace, above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10-17
