In the very beginning I prepared, formed, fashioned and created all things. With a voice like many waters, I commanded for all things to be. I moved upon the waste places…the empty places which were only a shadow of things to come and called them into being with the breath of My mouth. And, when all was complete I stopped to beholdâ€¦to see. What did I see? I saw all things both present and future My hands had made and said, â€śIt is good!â€ť
The word â€śsawâ€ť has more meaning than you may know. Many times My people pass right over the small everyday wordsâ€¦the common words I have spoken because the think they know what they mean. In doing this, many times the depths of My heart and what I am saying remains undiscovered. When I told you â€ś I sawâ€ť it means so much more and includes you. I saw you before you ever were and declared you to be good.
When you think of seeing something, what comes to mind? Perhaps it is a visual picture you relate to only on a surface levelâ€¦perhaps sometimes it is visual and emotionalâ€¦perhaps sometimes you see it more with your heart.
When I used the words â€śGod sawâ€ť it meant and still means so much more than anything you have come to believe about seeing. Therefore, donâ€™t be confined to the language of your day. Be open to the language of the heartâ€¦the language of My heart and discover depths yet unknown. I am here to open the eyes of your heart in a whole new way. Let these words sink into the shadowy places of things to come.
The word â€śsawâ€ť to Me means to stretch out to see all I can seeâ€¦to lean in and behold what I am looking at…and on the day when I proclaimed all things good it, included you. I was even then leaning into you to behold you. I was beholding you and called you suitable and pleasant. I approved of you completely.
Saw means to gaze upon, to behold and consider, to enjoy and have experience withâ€¦to joyfully look uponâ€¦to look one upon the otherâ€¦to come up and upon, to perceive and regard with great pleasureâ€¦to provide and have respect for, to stare at intentlyâ€¦to have visions of and enjoyâ€¦to be the recipient of favor from the one beholding. I am beholding you. Selah.
I am leaning into youâ€¦seeing youâ€¦beholding you and I want you to lean into Me without reservation to trust in not only My love for you, but in My power, wisdom and goodness (2 Timothy 3:15). Do not rely on your own insight or understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Do not rely on the words or traditions of men to interoperate the language of My heart.
Do not fear the gaze of My eyes fixed upon you. I have already declared you good and now I am breathing on all the waste placesâ€¦all the destructive places that are only shadows of what I have already called them to be. I am breathing on the tender places for they are captured in the loving gaze of My heart. I am beholding the intimate places to enlarge the Secret Garden of our love. I behold it all; thereforeâ€™ let us look one upon the other and the visions of My heart for you will become yoursâ€¦Read Complete Love Letter
And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely [â€¦] (Genesis 1:31 Amplified)
And how from your childhood you have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ Jesus [through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness]. (2 Timothy 3:15 Amplified)
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding (Proverbs 3:5 Amplified)
Father, it is hard not to lean on my own understanding. Yet as I look upon You and Your awesome beauty, I realize I cannot comprehend how wonderful and mighty You really are. I realize I am truly made in Your image and that is unexplainable. I grasp for words to describe the love in my heart for all that You have done. I too am a partaker of the breath You breathed into Your first creation.
When You said all You created was good it included me though I was not yet born. This is something I long to have a deeper revelation ofâ€¦to know beyond a shadow of doubt. To do so will change how I see not only myself but everyone else.
What an amazing thing to know You knew me before the foundations of the earth. It is hard to believe the reality of Your love and acceptance when I know of all my imperfections and flaws; yet, You loved me so much that You redeemed me from my sins.
Help me to walk in a deeper revelation of the goodness You declare over me, because I am Your workmanship in Christ Jesus. Help me to understand Your special love languageâ€¦the language of the heart. May I see what You see and understand what You saw so long ago without qualification.
Father, I will not fear what You reveal to me for I know You are Love. Your eyes are fixed on me and My eyes are fixed upon You. Just as an eagle locks talons with its mate as they fall through the air in an act of complete trust, I lock my heart with Yours in one accord. I lock my heart with Yours in the bonds of trust never to be released. As we walk together in the intimate places in the secret Garden of our love, I will see all the beauty of who You are, and who You are making me. I receive the visions of Your heart for me. Amen.
1. How do you personally describe the word saw? Meditate on the different meaning of the word described above. Truly God saw you in the beginning, for He sees the beginning and the end, yet He still proclaimed all that He created as good. You were included in that creation! Selah.
2. Write down what you believe the language of the heart is. Can you understand it? Take some time to rememberâ€¦to look back at some to the sweet things the Lord has said to you. Write them down and make a free will choice to elevate them over the subtle and not so subtle accusations of the enemy in whatever form it cameâ€¦through his whispering voice or by the words of men.
3. Describe the difference of seeing something in the visual realm and seeing something from the emotional visionary realm. The things you experience when you worship, read the Word or in times of meditating on Him leave an emotional imprint on your heart that is just as important as those things you can feel, touch or see.
4. How do you think God sees you? Are you willing to let Him show you? Are you willing to make the commitment to meet Him in the Secret Garden and see what He wants to reveal to you? Write down those revelations so you can refer back to them as a reminder.
