TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD
How much are you willing to sacrifice to find Me, the pearl of great price? Those that look for diamonds know that it takes time and perseverance if they want to find something so priceless. Only those that are relentless in their pursuit will find Me. Finding Me may look different than you expect. Remember Jesus' words that when you visit those in prison, feed the hungry, and clothe the poor you are ministering to Us. Do not forget these things as you seek My face above all else.
You cannot operate in love without spending time in My presence. This is how Jesus was able to minister to so many. He paid the price to be in My presence. He only wanted to be with Me and please Me in everything He did. He was able to carry My presence everywhere He went. My glory was all that He was concerned with.
You must fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith. Seek Me with your whole heart. I will manifest My presence to one so hungry! Once you taste and see that I am good, nothing else will suffice.
Psalm 34:8-9 The Message (MSG)
8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him. 9 Worship God if you want the best; worship opens doors to all his goodness.
Jeremiah 29:13 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Psalm 19:10 The Message (MSG)
God’s Word is better than a diamond, better than a diamond set between emeralds. You’ll like it better than strawberries in spring, better than red, ripe strawberries.
