The Fountain Day 214: God, make Yourself known

Lord, would You make Yourself known?  Make Yourself apparent to the earth.  Make Your ways known.  If we don’t have You, we have nothing.  Each one of us was created to worship You.  We were created to know You.  Help us to know You more.  Forgive our sins and cleanse our hearts.  Turn our eyes from the distractions of the earth and let us see only You.  Let us quickly discern evil and turn away from it.  God, I choose You.  Every day I choose You.  Let our lives display the glory and wonder of all You are.  Let us look more like You.  Lead us.  Call us.  Know us.  In Jesus’ name, amen.

Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before You!  As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil, come down to make Your name known to Your enemies and cause the nations to quake before You!  For when You did awesome things that we did not expect, You came down, and the mountains trembled before You.  Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides You, acts on behalf of those who wait for Him.  You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember Your ways.         Isaiah 64:1-5a

Lord, let our hearts be constantly drawn to You.  Fill us and then fill us again.  Lord Jesus, we have nothing without You.  Come now and fill us.

I can’t really say or explain what is happening inside of my heart these days, but I know this…I keep finding myself crying out for the Lord.  Sometimes at night I find myself on my knees, arms stretched out to heaven, crying out the name of Jesus.  I find myself on my face, crying out for more.  I ache for Him.  I ache for the evidence of His presence to mark me.  There’s a deeper cry in my heart. 

Have you been experiencing this too?

Have you felt drawn deeper into His heart?

As we wait upon His salvation for our families, country, and anything else…as we long for Him to make things right again…let’s not forget that what we need most is for Him to make Himself known.  People need to be saved.  People need to hear Truth.  The hour is late, and souls are the greatest value.  Each life matters.  Each is important. 

My heart is constantly breaking for those most hostile ones.  The ones who scream and rant against God, claiming He doesn’t exist.  I can see their pain.  They are in so much pain. 

Oh Lord, that You would make Yourself known to them.  Show them Your glory.  Be real to them.  Give them faith to see.  Save their souls, Jesus. 

In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”  John 3:3
