The longing to have encounters with the one true living God comes from Me. Like a baby that reaches for his mother, so have I made you to long for Me. Press in, for I want to reveal Myself to you.
This generation is bored with religious talk without experience. They hear that I love them, but long to know this truth by experience. Even in the natural, a child that is never held becomes deprived and does not develop fully. Why do you think the world runs after the supernatural? They know there is more and they long to encounter Me.
Will you show them the way to Me? Will you show them that experiencing Me is available to the hungry and thirsty soul? Most of My children are afraid of supernatural encounters with Me, but that should be the most natural thing to you. You are a supernatural being, aren't you? If you belong to Christ, you are a citizen of the Kingdom of heaven. Read the accounts in My Word and you will discover the numerous times this occurred.
Remember babies in the natural are messy and so they are in the Kingdom. Expect this and help them discover the wonders of My Kingdom, all hidden in Christ. No longer settle for cheap imitations of the enemy. No longer be afraid to come expecting My manifest presence, for this is for all who long for more. I am a good Father, and I want you to seek Me with your whole heart. Surely those who do will never be disappointed.
Psalm 85:8-9 Amplified Bible (AMP)
8 I will hear [with expectant hope] what God the Lord will say,
For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones—
But let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is near to those who [reverently] fear Him [and obey Him with submissive wonder],
That glory [the manifest presence of God] may dwell in our land.
Job 42:5 New Century Version (NCV)
My ears had heard of you before, but now my eyes have seen you.
Matthew 5:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Blessed [anticipating God’s presence, spiritually mature] are the pure in heart [those with integrity, moral courage, and godly character], for they will see God.
2 Corinthians 12:1-4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 It is necessary to boast, though nothing is gained by it; but I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord. 2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, [only] God knows—such a man was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I know that such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, [only] God knows—4 was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words which man is not permitted to speak [words too sacred to tell].
