This is a special writing to me because I so see God the Father’s heart in this …. and I ask you to remember as you finish reading it – that even as Jesus gave the invitation to any who would hear “Come (to Me)whosoever will” – the invitation still stands.
THE HEART OF OUR CREATOR
As I gave my Heavenly Father an hour just to “be with Him” and worship -almost immediately – I began to sense and to understand that He wants to touch and to fellowship with every single person in the world! And that no one – NOT ANYONE – can stand in another person’s place with God!
I felt His love for, and desire to fellowship with the multitudes of people around the world who do not know Him …. so many who do not know He is their Creator and Savior. Yet there is a place with Him for each one of them – a place that no other person can ever fill!
God our Creator so desires that fellowship with each one of us that He is “jealous” over just one hour …. so much so that He would say to those who do know Him as Savior – “Could you not take just one hour of your day and spend that time with Me?” (Because) there will never again be an opportunity like we have now in this time to CHOOSE to fellowship with Him.
…… And to each one of the multitude of people that give their lives to so many other things – and live their lives with so many “unanswered ” needs – would He not say (out of a heart of love) to each of them – “How oft would I have gathered you “as a hen gathers her chicks and holds them close under her wings …. but you would not turn to Me so that I could take you there.”
I also understood this – that even as no one can ever stand in our place with God – even so, neither can you or I ever give that fellowship that belongs to Him to someone or something else. But it is, and will remain an “unanswered” and “unsatisfied” empty place in our life – that we both live and die with – without Him.
