God walks on the water, but you will never see His footprints there.
LISTEN TO THE SERMON HERE
I don’t want provision and protection without Your presence.
I’m not going to settle for any blessing without the Blesser.
I don’t want the land without the Lord.
I desire to know Him.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,” “neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord.”
Don’t ever make the mistake of thinking God’s ways are like your ways or God’s thoughts like your thoughts.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Your thoughts are never going to reveal to you God’s ways. God’s ways are always mysterious.
Yeah, if we are not to rely on our thoughts or ways then this calls for intimacy.
An intimate relationship with God does not come by observation, like seeing God part the Red Sea. It does not come by interrogation or reasoning. It comes by spending time face to face with God.
INFORMATION OR INTIMACY
You cannot love a person until you know their ways, and you cannot know their ways until you spend time with that person. When we learn to seek His face and not His hand, we will know His ways and find rest for our souls.
When you know God intimately, there is serenity. Peace comes into your life. God gives you rest. There is stability. There is sufficiency. And you learn, no matter how bad the problem, not only is God necessary; God is enough.
I desire to get there
