“By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Hebrews 11:5-6
“My Precious One,
As your Father, I long to meet your needs and develop you. As your friend, I wish to share passions, dreams and desires; to have a relationship weaved with give and take, one based on trust, respect and love.
Those who know me, see me as more than a ‘meet-er of needs’; recognizing my unconditional love, they trust me enough to draw closer and go deeper.
I desire an intimacy with you and when you relegate my access to the fringes of your life, it breaks my heart.
Most of the Israelites were fearful and untrusting of my heart towards them. But…Moses was different. And, I rewarded him for stepping up and out. How we enjoyed a greater connection! I love all my children but some…I call my friends.
Moses, Enoch and Abraham became my friends; this was a natural progression from the quality time we spent together.
If only the faces of all my children would shine from my presence! That they would know (from the depths of their being) I am a relational God–focused on connection, redemption and restoration.
I am good and pure; every soul who reaches towards me will never be rejected. I long to take what we have and go higher and deeper; to expand your experience and understanding of my love. Just like Moses, Abraham and Enoch, I call YOU…higher. I call you deeper.
Pursue me with your whole heart and you will never be satisfied with mere glimpses of me; the more your heart pursues, the more I’ll be seen. Time is precious and fleeting; get to know me as not only your Father but the most loving, loyal and patient friend you will ever have.”
