Know Me

Day 3 – Know Me

Key Verse – 
 Hebrews 8:11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. 

“You don’t even know me!” Have you ever found yourself saying this to a friend or maybe even a parent.  Worse, have you ever felt betrayal in such a way by someone close to you that you have thought, “I don’t even know you”. 

Do you ever walk around with a mask in an attempt to hide who you really are?

In doing this, you are keeping everyone else at a distance.  You are pushing them away and as a result, you can never really know them and they can never really know you. You may have a variety of reasons why you may do this, but in the end it hurts rather than help you.

Amazingly, the Creator of the universe, God gives you the opportunity to know Him. You do not have to have a friend, leader, or pastor talk to Him for you.  He gives you the ability to come to Him.  He desires to reveal to you who He really is.  

As equally as amazing is that He knows you completely apart from any masks and loves you for who you are. He made you and loves you unconditionally.  Only He can help you become the person you were truly designed to be.   

Do you want to know the Creator of the universe?

Do you want Him to reveal who He has created you to be?

Prayer – God, reveal Yourself to Me and help me to know you and the awesome love you have for me. Help me to remove the masks I put up and be exactly who You have designed me to be. In Jesus Name, Amen

Challenge – Spend some time today and ask God to reveal to you, one thing He says about you. Write it down. Show a leader have them confirm it is from God if you are unsure, and have them ask God what He says about you. Put these somewhere where you will be reminded of them.

Most Valuable

Daily Encouragement –

My child, My beloved, do you know how much you mean to Me? I gave the best and most valuable sacrifice so we could be in fellowship together forever. That is how much I value you.

You are not perfect and make mistakes, but that is why I made the way for you to be cleansed, purified, made whole, and perfect. Even though you make mistakes, you will be made perfect through Jesus’ blood if you bring those things to Me. I will clean you and use you as My vessel of righteousness not because of what you have done, but because you come to Me!

I am the One who does it. Listen to my voice. Watch what I am doing. Come and walk with Me. I want the best for you more than anyone else, and I will cause you to succeed. I love you My child!

Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. 

Colossians 1:27-29 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. 

Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Stake in The Kingdom

Daily Encouragement –

 My child, you know that I love you. I love the way you seek to give Me honor and praise. You know that I am a Rewarder. It brings Me joy to pour out My blessings over you. 

My Kingdom is advancing. I want you to be a part and reap the reward as an heir. You have a stake in this Kingdom, and you should be pressing into it harder than anyone. 

It will take bold, decisive action in obedience to the Spirit to advance the Kingdom. You are not one to back down or give up, and you will not do that in My Kingdom. You will press forward and press through every obstacle, struggle, and enemy that would come against you.

Know this, even as you press through, your reward is not based on your success but on what you give up. What is your sacrifice? You are successful when you sacrifice your will and your desires to take up Mine for My Kingdom that I am giving to you. I love you My child!!!

Luke 18:29-30 So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.” 

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Grow Together

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child! I am doing a great thing right now in your midst. Do you not see it? Do you not know it?

I am weaving many people, ministries, bodies… together in unity to accomplish My mission. The good news must be preached in every tongue, carried to every tribe, and everyone must have chance after chance to come to Me. Do not write anyone off but continue with the mission. 

Friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, and strangers are all in need of Me in a deeper way. They may know Me, but how deeply? How deeply do you know Me?

There is a greater level of growth you must come to in Me so you may lead others to this deeper place as well. 

You cannot go alone! You not only need Me, but you need others to push you to greater things and pick you up when you fall. 

Kingdom advancement is for all of you. Do it together and receive the reward of My Kingdom coming forth in great ways on the earth. I love you My child!

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. 

Hebrews 10:23-25 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Routine Adventure

Daily Encouragement –

I love you My child. This life is an adventure, and there is always something new and exciting Me. Even in your mundane routine you will find Me there. I am waiting and calling you to a deeper level. 

How can you love Me more today? 

How can you trust Me right where you are?

How can you step out in obedience right now and speak the words of truth and life I give?

Love Me more, trust Me more, and be obedient to what I am saying and watch the adventure spring up and cause you to grow.

Remember to listen to Me. Invite Me into your routine and listen to what I am saying. When you follow Me completely, I will infuse the daily monotony with My power and presence. 

The adventure in the routine is in Me. Do not leave Me out or you are leaving the excitement and adventure of true life behind. I love you My child!!!

Hebrews 11:32 – 12:2 And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again.Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented— of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth. And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.   
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Fresh Fire

Daily Encouragement – 

My child, I love you, and My fire is within you. It is increasing in you daily even as you come close to Me. This is My fire to feed the hungry and satisfy My people. 

You are called and chosen to labor with Me in this work. You are Mine, and it is you who are being continually made into My image. 

The fire growing in you and coming out of you flows straight from My throne room. This fire is for the here and now of purification, and it is for spreading out all over the world. 

The lost and hurting need Me and My fire. The broken, weary, tired, torn, and stagnant all need new things from Me to overcome and move into a new place with Me.

I am continually moving and growing and being made new in you. Even as the new things are revealed to you and made new in you, you are to be changed and brought to the next new thing to walk in. 

I love you and am pouring out all this and more in and through you.

Hebrews 12:26-28

Great Reward

Daily Encouragement – 

Be sure, I will reward the burning desires of your heart even as you seek to rid yourself of the fleshly desires that try to arise and distract, disable or destroy My plans and purposes for your life. 

I am the Rewarder and Giver of good gifts. Come to me and see what I will pour out upon you. 

As you diligently seek me, I am pouring out the blessings of heaven over you. Whether you see and know them or they go unrecognized, be sure that I am doing this.  

When your desire is to love Me and draw near to Me, you will always receive the greatest reward possible even as you step more and more into it. 

My blessings of life and love will overflow you as you go deeper in Me. This is your life purpose and what I desire from you. 

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 

 James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
