God’s debts are eternal. He chooses to owe US!

Apparently, willingly, God makes Himself liable to us. Hold on don’t get upset. Basically God made us, so He sustains us. That’s everyone not just believers. But here’s the divinely strange thing about being saved. God actually sort of kinda makes Himself especially or even more liable to a believer. Small but big difference. I know I know. We owe God He can never pay us back. But let this blow your mind a sec. Do you know why you could never pay Him back? It would be like the bank increasing your credit daily. You pay your installment (worship, service, etc – none of which should be payment but sometimes we act as if we CAN actually pay back anything). And instead of your credit balance going back to what you owe, its INCREASED to you owe more but makes available credit more AT THE SAME TIME. For those not too good at math…. Your card has a balance of a 1000 dollars. Your installment over 12 months is 80 bucks. You pay 80 bucks at the end of this month. Then First Heavenly Bank (FHB) says you owe 2000 rand and gives you MORE credit. Better? No? Cant explain it better I’ll pray on it.

How bout this… Ever feel like you’re not as strong spiritually as you should be? Like you could be better, deeper, closer, iNNer? Recently I’ve been asking God, through some sharing with some friends, about giving me a spirit of prayer cause my prayer life is sorta on the fritz or is in winter instead of spring. A bit of a drought season. The water is still there but the levels are getting low, so again strangely enough apart of me is not praying as much as I’m used to but the other part of me (inspired-me) is jealous over that time when sweet prayer time was the end all and be all of my day. My daily.

It was weird. When the realisation hit me. Here I am, not where I could be spiritually. Mostly through my own weaknesses and vices, and yet 1) I’ve got really great friends (bestthings) in my life that push me closer to God and 2) a part of me knows I’m not where I am and is actually yearning for it deeply.

You get what I mean? Its like feeling disillusioned or dispassionate or disinterested or disconnected while yearning for passion connection closeness. Like being schizo 🙂 or two people stuck in one body. Then I realise to glory and honour of God, when you’re not where you should, its Him who puts in you the desire to be higher. You know that Josh Groban song “You raise me up so I can stand, …I am strong when I am on your shoulders”. Sorta reminds of David when He asks God to rejuvenate and rekindle and revive him.

The need the desire isn’t mine. I’m where I am through my own fault. But I don’t wanna be hear. Its like an addict realising they want to be better so badly that they check themselves into a rehab center. Maybe I shoulda titled this email “I tried to make me go to rehab….and I said…..” > Ok my bad I’ll leave that alone. So anyway, as usual, when I want to know if I’m the right track about an idea spiritually I checked the Bible to check the mind of God (don’t miss that). I said(prayed) as I was search Lord do you do that, I know you do but make it plain to me.  And I tell you the truth I started having a party with God. I realised that God owes the believer encouragement when they’re down. That His love constrains Him to hunt us with mercy and forgiveness. That He knows we live in this world at a disadvantage, and without Him without Life, we can’t survive. That Holy Spirit is like sweet heavenly rain for the parched desert ground of our daily souls caught in daily struggles.

15 For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

  • see what I mean, the believer is Renewed everyday, not to yesterday’s level, God’s intention is glory. Today is a chance to be better than ever before. Closer. Deeper. Will you take it? Ask for the Holy Spirit to just sit in you for 5 minutes after this email.

11 so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!
12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,
– as usual God makes the first move, I press on to possess perfection because I’ve been possessed first. As long as you believe, Love forces Itself, to come after you. That’s why the mercy seat sits ontop of judgement in the tabernacle of God.

You and I are like the walls of Jerusalem in Nehemiah. We were once glorious (spiritual) but because of sins, our land (hearts) fell to invaders (temptation). And our walls(prayerlife worshiplife) was torn down. And when Nehemiah (Jesus) looks at our walls (heart), he cries and is sad. The King (Father God) looks at our faces(Jesus’ nail-pierced hands)  and asks what is wrong? And Nehemiah (our High Priest) says the walls are desolate and he mourns over them(the fall) and wants to go build them(…wait for it). The king (Father) asks Nehemiah “if you go will you come back?” and Nehemiah says perhaps not (death and the cross). But Nehemiah insists and king lets him go to rebuild(…in comes the Holy Spirit).  Read the book of Nehemiah. Its short and powerful. Remember though, you are Jerusalem in that story.

I love God, I live with Him and by Him everyday.

But here’s one of the strangest things I’ve ever been given insight into….
I miss God sometimes…

Don’t you?
I know you love Him, care about Him, serve and worship and stuff but do you miss Him?

Does He miss you? He loves you cares about you etc, but does He miss you?
