The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

Samuel Rutherford 1600 – 1661

Samuel Rutherford 1600 – 1661

Samuel Rutherford was a dynamic preacher from Scotland. As a youth he was reckless and careless. However, God got a hold of his heart and changed his life. Samuel attended a university and not long after, was licensed to preach. His work began at Anworth. He poured his heart and life out in service there for nine years. Sadly, his wife and two of his children died in the midst of serving. Life continued to be tragic for him. After the deaths in his family, he was banished to Aberdeen for writing a book! They warned him not to ever preach again in Scotland. That did not stop him. He continued in his work by writing some amazingly profound letters! They were the type of letters that made you take time and read each sentence with thought and prayer. When he died on March 29, 1661, his former student edited his letters. The letters were published, and lives were changed. The letters were “heart to heart” letters: they spoke directly to the specific needs of people. The passages he mostly used were Isaiah and Song of Solomon.

Samuel focused in on love for Christ and on a closer communion with our Lord. That profound last phrase is exactly what I want to encourage you to do today. Take time, to cleanse yourself and draw closer to God. Make HIM your every thought. Tell HIM everything that your going through. Let Him transform your mind into sweet intimacy with Him, our Bridegroom.
