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!

Cry out to Jesus

"God is not aloof. He says continually through the centuries, "I'll help you, I really will. When you're ready to throw up your hands–throw them up to me." Speaking about when we are calling out to God,
"That is the literal meaning of the Hebrew word used countless times in the Old Testament when people called upon God. It means to cry out, to implore aid. This is the essence of true prayer that touches God. Charles Spurgeon once remarked that "the best style of prayer is that which cannot be called anything else but a cry." Isn't that what God invites us to do all through the Bible? Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know" (Jer.33:3) God is not aloof. He is not disconnected. He says continually through the centuries, "I'll help you, I really will. When you don't know where to turn, then turn to me. When you're ready to throw up your hands– throw them up to me. Put your voice behind them, too, and I'll come and help you."
The Real Force
Satan's main strategy with God's people has always been to whisper, "Don't call, don't ask, don't depend on God to do great things. You'll get along fine if you just rely on your own cleverness and energy." The truth of the matter is that the devil is not terribly frightened of our human efforts and credentials. But he knows his kingdom will be damaged when we lift our hearts to God. Listen to David's confident assertion in Psalm 4:3. "Know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself; the Lord will hear when I call to him." That was David's whole posture, his instinct, and especially his approach to warfare. It doesn't matter what the Philistine armies have. If we call out to God, he will give us the victory. If we backslide and don't call, then we can be defeated by a tiny army. I can almost hear David saying, "You can chase me, you can persecute me, you can do anything you want–but when I call on God, you're in trouble! The Lord will hear which I call to him."

All of this quoted from Jim Cymbala Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. It just touched my heart, as a message from Jesus!
