Touching the Heart of God

Touching the Heart of God

By Abraham Israel





Heart is always related to somebody’s desire or his love or his likeness or his plan to do something. The heart of God is full of love and affection towards us. How can we know it? His word says, “God is love” (1 John 4:8). First of all we must understand that God is not a power, nor an influence, but a person. God as a person has His own mind, will and emotion. He is powerful and infinite in all His attributes. But we can only know this God’s heart by relating to Him spiritually.

God created man in His own image and likeness, and this God Almighty says in His word,
“Now [in the present time according to human stand point] the Lord is the Spirit….” (2 Cor 3:17). Right Now if we want to know His heart, we must understand that the Lord God is the Spirit. We have a spirit with in us which becomes alive when we invite Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour in to our life by just calling Him by faith. Though this spirit that is alive in us, we can know God through His Spirit because our spirit and the Spirit of God is joined together the day we invite Jesus Christ in to our heart (1 Cor 6:17). Through our spirit we can contact Him. Our fellowship with God starts with a spirit to Spirit intimate relationship (2 Cor 13:14). This heart to heart conversation is what makes God to respond to us from His heart.

Most people want to get something or they like to get blessed by God. But they don’t realize that He is a person
. Because of a religious spirit and attitude, many people want to abuse the love and friendship of God. We cannot be a friend of somebody by just lusting and desiring what they have, but not loving them for who they are. This grieves the heart of God because He is a person. So only the first and the greatest commandment that fulfills all requirement and establishes and cements our friendship with God is, “… ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37). He expects us to be friend of Him first and foremost. Friend will always respond to our need and we will also respond to his need. Friend who is real will always share what He has with us, even the most hidden secrets of his heart.

For this to happen in our life with God, we need to yield and submit to Him unconditionally and prove that we are really a friend He can trust. Only when we go through a crisis a friend can stay and comfort us and strengthen us or can desert, dump and even accuse us. The same applies with God also. If we are real friend of God, we will prove to Him by staying with Him when things don’t go well with us and even when it gets worse with us like Job and Abraham in the Bible. This can only touch the heart of God truly! He is the one and only true and faithful friend who will never ever fail and has loved us and has given even His life for us. His name is JESUS! He is a great friend indeed, and will be faithful to us as we cling on to Him. Hallelujah!

Get acquainted with God and you will touch the Heart of God! Praise the Lord!

About

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
