Early morning. My favorite time of day. Clean slate. Fresh start. Anything possible. So much potential. My mind already going full speed as it does through the night and at all times honestly. That’s when passion burst forth in my heart. And these words came to mind. I told them to the Lord. Vehemently. “I want you Lord!”
No recollection of what I was thinking about at the time. But I do know this. Those words say everything about where the Lord has brought me in life and ministry. I love and adore and revere and desire to please, bring joy and pleasure to, make proud, honor, praise, sing to, worship, serve, obey, glorify, and tell others about the Lord more than anything or anyone on this earth. And I want the Lord and His Spirit and an ever-closer, ever-deeper, ever-more-intimate relationship with Him more than I want any person, place, or thing I could have for the rest of my life. I am madly, passionately, head-over-heels, immeasurably, unfathomably, unimaginably in love with the Lord and His Word.
Perhaps surprisingly to you, and it most assuredly is to me, I am a 100% Jewish follower of the Lord Jesus Christ who for decades was broken beyond human hope and repair and who was an atheist at one time not to mention immersed in all sorts of false religious beliefs along the way. Not to mention for a long time after I came to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord I ran the gamut of spiritually dead, apathetic, lukewarm, consumed with self not Christ, etc. But the Lord didn’t leave me where I was. He brought me to where I am!
I wouldn’t go back to my old life and heart concerning Jesus for anything in the world. There is nothing more wonderful, fulfilling, satisfying, exciting, joyful, life-giving, life-changing, amazing, awesome, and phenomenal in the universe than God almighty and than having a forever relationship with Him instead of spending eternity in hell and the lake of fire in forever torment apart from Him.
I encourage you with all my heart to turn from your sins, believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and in His death and resurrection, sincerely commit your heart and life to God and His ways, receive God’s forgiveness and the promise of forever with Him and the indwelling of His Holy Spirit, and become and remain TOTALLY DEVOTED to the Lord Jesus Christ now and forevermore.
There is nothing and nobody we should love more and treat as a higher priority than the Lord and loving and serving Him with every ounce of our hearts today, tomorrow, and forever and ever, AMEN!
Who and what do you want more than anything else in the universe? May your answer be THE LORD and being TOTALLY DEVOTED TO HIM forevermore! Hallelujah!
