Ephesians 5:26 – “So that He might sanctify her (the church), having cleansed her by the washing of the water with the Word.”
More than once the Word of God is referred to as water. The blood deals with sin, but it’s water that addresses impurity.
Exodus 38:8 – “He made the laver and its base of bronze from the mirrors of the women who ministered at the door of the Tent of Meeting.”
It’s not an accident that the laver of water was made from the mirrors of the women, as the Bible tells us that the Word of God is like a mirror.
2 Corinthians 3:18 – “And all of us, as with unveiled face, because we continued to behold in the Word of God as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever-increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
When we come to God’s Word, we will reproduce what we see.
Proverbs 23:7 – “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”
WHATEVER MY HEART IS SET UPON WHEN I COME TO THE BIBLE, WILL DETERMINE MUCH OF WHAT I SEE IN THE BIBLE.
For example, if I come to God’s Word with evangelism on my mind, the Bible will open up new Scriptures that I never previously considered to be evangelistic. What I carry to this watering hole will determine much of what I see and reproduce.(Genesis 30:37-39)
MY DESPERATION FOR THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT IS ON MY HEART MAKES ME AVAILABLE FOR THINGS THAT OTHERS SEEM TO CONTINUALLY MISS.
BY KEEPING A PURE HEART, THE JOURNEY TO GOD’S WORD IS A JOURNEY WHERE NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME.
Mary was chosen to bring forth the Son of God into the world in human flesh. Jesus Christ was a living, breathing move of God. Every place he went heaven was brought forth on the earth.
He was also conceived within every born again believer at the moment of salvation and WE NOW HAVE A MOVE OF GOD LIVING WITHIN US.
Revelation 1:6 – “And has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father — to Him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.”
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” – Revelation 1:8
Wait patiently with Him while He blesses you. Don’t rush into His Presence with time-consciousness gnawing at your mind — He dwells in timelessness.
Though you are a time-bound creature, seek to meet Him in timelessness. As you focus on His Presence, the demands of time and tasks will diminish. He will bless you and keep you, making His Face shine upon you graciously, giving you Peace.
“But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.” – Micah 7:7
