I find myself at times when I am fussing over this and fussing over that, posing this question to God: does this matter to you? I want the thing that matters to you in this circumstance to matter to me and to let everything else go.
What matters to God? What really matters to him? I am not implying that he doesn't care about the things that concern us but I am at the place that I want to move on and find his heart in the matter. So, what really matters to you here, right now? What do I need to know?
I followed my heart to this teaching today. As I revisit the Fractal of Two, blessing your adrenals and kidneys.
And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth. Genesis 14:19
Our God is the possessor, the owner, the purchaser of all things. So what can we give to the God who possesses everything? Yes, I want to know. I need to know. This really does matter.
The answer surprised me. We can give God the gift of enjoying his joy. We can give to our God the gift of valuing covenant as much as he does. When our spirit has a passion for understanding covenants, we are giving God an immense gift.
THE ONLY THING IN OUR CONTROL IS WHAT WE LOVE
When we love covenants as much as he does, something radically shifts.
Spirit, I call you to attention. Your passion both frames and causes you to see differently than others do. A cognitive belief is different from passion. I bless you with increasing your passion for covenant, for understanding how it works, what the nuances of covenant are. I bless you in your understanding of your faithfulness of God in covenant. The wisdom in covenant, the mystery of how he works through covenant in all the broken world around us. I bless your spirit in bringing your passion to bear on the thinking dynamics of the adrenals both the left and the right so that they can see the world through the grid of passion for the God of all covenants and the covenant of our great God. I bless you spirit with executing not just a cerebral agreement but an emotional, spiritual passion for the perfection of the covenant that God has offered you. I bless you in the name of our covenant keeping God.
we would love to hear from you
