The LORD God is pursuing an intimate love relationship with you. He will not end that pursuit until He has accomplished His eternal purpose in your life.
From Genesis to Revelation, we can see God progressively moving closer and closer to the heart of man.

Jesus Christ is referred to as the Word of God. He has been with God since the beginning of time. When Jesus came to earth, He dwelt with man in the form of a man. When He ministered and performed many miracles, many men and women got to witness the glory that resided in Him. Now, as children of God, we have a better understanding of Christ and fuller knowledge of the glory He possesses.

Thank You, Lord, that as a result of this great gift, I am able to behold His glory, day in and day out, Amen. May I never take this for granted, Lord, thatImay be focused on You, praying ceaselessly in my spirit. LORD shower Your blessings down on me that I may be Your lamp atop the hill, I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
