Jordan For Jesus #005 "Indescribable" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-03-20 07:02:43
Ultimately crave Jesus more than you crave anything else in this life. Pursue God first! "Seek first the kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need." (Matthew 6:33) Jesus is all you need! Chase after God! Follow hard after Him all the days of your life, twenty-four-seven. Have a heart completely abandoned to love Him alone.
Be lovesick for Jesus! To fall in love with God is the greatest romance! To seek God is the greatest adventure, and to find God is the greatest achievement. The Bible says, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind." (Luke 10:27)
Have a heart completely sold out for Jesus, a heart that is lost in Him, and a heart that burns with His holy fire only for Him. Fall in love with Jesus! Jesus is more than enough! He is satisfaction and contentment. Let Jesus be your one devotion and only desire!
You have a love story! It's in the Bible and it tells you how much God loves you and how far He went just to win your heart. Have you ever been so in love with someone that you couldn't find the words to express that love? That is how I feel about Jesus! He is so indescribable that words fail to express just how much I truly love Him. He conquered words! He is the indescribable God! Words can never measure all that God is.
My only heart belongs completely to Jesus because I'm so in love with Him and beyond that, I'm in a committed relationship with Him. I'm just an ordinary girl that has fallen deeply in love with an extraordinary God... extraordinarily. God alone is a fire starter! He alone is holy fire who sets hearts ablaze, motivating them back to Him.
Through sharing this, I hope that God uses this message to motivate the hearts and lives of others to Him!
Slightly Obsessed #186: When the Path Ahead Is Fearsome
The room was dark and shadowed, the only sound within its walls the rhythmic whoosh of the ventilator beside my son’s bed. I sat on an uncomfortable chair jammed into one corner of the room. In the faint light that fell from the window across the pages of the Bible I held, I tried to corral my stampeding fears long enough to find some comfort from God’s Word. Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
Slightly Obsessed #185: Clean
They were just turning down the lights in the sanctuary as I awkwardly slid into a seat near the back of the church. I was tired and soiled by the previous week. Life had been especially difficult, and I had not handled the pressure well. I felt completely unhinged spiritually and wholly unworthy to be in God’s presence. The worship team began with one of my favorite songs, and I hoped I didn’t look as vulnerable as I felt.
Slightly Obsessed #184: The Mark of Maturity
The infant finishes his bottle and smiles contentedly up at his mother. A trickle of milk courses down from the corner of his mouth. It’s a sweet scene because that’s what babies do. They are born with immature digestive systems and no teeth. Mother’s milk or formula are necessary for the child to survive and thrive. As they grow, their teeth begin to come in, their digestive abilities mature, and they can tolerate solid food.
Slightly Obsessed #183: He Knows Your Name
All sheep look alike to me. Defenseless, timid, and nondescript creatures, they tend to wander and get into trouble. When one falls, it needs help to get back on its feet. Its purpose in life is mostly to eat and make more sheep. It’s easy to see why Jesus equated them to humans. A line of sheep looks like a sea of wool and blank stares, huddled in a timid group behind their leader.
Slightly Obsessed #182 "When Speaking the Truth Makes You the Enemy"
The apostle Paul loved the people of God. After his conversion to Christ, he spent his life not only establishing churches, but also ministering to their needs. He often had the unpleasant duty of confronting issues that threatened the fledgling church, and his letters to the Galatians and to the Corinthians were especially aimed at keeping the churches rooted in the faith.
Slightly Obsessed #181 "The Moment before the Moment of Revelation"
The movie Ten Commandments famously depicted the rise, fall, and restoration of the Hebrew man who would one day lead his people out of Egypt. Set afloat as a baby in a basket to escape the wrath of Egypt, Moses was found by an Egyptian princess and unwittingly restored to his family to be raised as royalty. He was a man with a foot in two worlds, and his choice to follow the faith of his birth family cost him a king’s inheritance.
