Listening to the Father's Heart - June 11


He desires you to seek Him for all of your needs, especially when you are hurting. Your real goal should be to discover the Lord and His grace in your place of pain.

Son, when you hurt, of course you want the hurt to be removed. You want to feel better. And I desire you to seek me for all of your needs, especially when you are hurting. However, there is a higher place to go in your pain than just toward the removal of it. Your real goal should be to discover me and my grace in this place of pain. And to grasp a certainty that I am there with you. When you live to please me, you will begin to open the wells of deep joy that you are missing. Joy is not determined by circumstances. It’s determined by the degree of my presence you experience. I want to reveal myself to you and I know that deep down you desire to experience me. As you turn completely to me, you will find my presence. I know there are times when it feels like life is simply not working. You try to do all the right things but are stuck with seeming contradictions in the way you thought life would be and should be. I am the only one who can reconcile life's contradictions. I don’t always make life easier, but I make it better.

My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.  Psalms 84:2

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. I Peter 5:6, 7
