Beloved, It would be so wrong of Me to behold you and at the same time leave you in a state which compromises the beauty of who you are. Therefore, I am ever-presentâ€¦always coming to challenge, provoke to good works, convict, adore, comfort, give understanding, wisdom, courage, discernment and so much more. It is the release of beholding love that changes not condemnation. Why condemn and crush the purpose for which I came? That would be not only silly buy wholly self-defeating to whom and what I am.
You must see the heart of My beholding and then you will be able to walk out the challenges I present to you. You will be able to challenge the manifestation of the enemyâ€™s works in your life without fear and without self-condemnation.
You will know his works are manifest to be destroyed in order to bring about the fulfillment of all I have called you to be. With the destruction of all that hinders there will be an increase in your ability to behold Me. Knowing Me as you are known will be the fruit. And what a good fruit it is.
Therefore, know this, when I behold youâ€¦look on youâ€¦I gaze upon you with consideration, discernmentâ€¦I experience you…I approve of youâ€¦I gaze and take heed (indeed) joyfully. When I behold you it is not from a distance for I come near to provide, regardâ€¦yes, even to stare at youâ€¦to think and view you with visions of purpose and destiny (Psalms 33:13). Today destiny unfolds and I uphold you. I know the plans I have for you and they are good. Revel this day in My goodnessâ€¦revel this day in My love…Read Complete Love Letter
As for me, I will continue beholding Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice, and right standing with You); I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form [and having sweet communion with You]. (Psalm 17:15 Amplified)
Thank you Lord for being committed to meâ€¦committed to changing who I am and what I do into Your very likeness. You never get tired or weary. Your never slack on the job for You do not slumber nor sleep. Provoke my heart to do Your good pleasure as I revel in Your incomprehensible love. How I desire to know you as you know me. How awesome to know Your gaze is ever fixed on meâ€¦ever beholding me. This could be fearful if I did not know that You are Love. Nothing escapes you and all evil schemes and plans are now manifest in my life in order to be destroyed. Line upon line You reveal themâ€¦incident by incident You uncover them enabling me to overcome and walk in freedom.
I agree with You and declare that You, the Lord, consider me with great love. Therefore, my heart is consumed by you and does not halt or falter. Today my destiny is unfolding before my very eyes. I acknowledge the present moment I live in to be a part of my destinyâ€¦a door to my tomorrows which are already ordained and planned by the Lord. Today the Lord goes before me and directs every step. I will not falter. Amen
- Reflect on how the Lord has adored, convicted, comforted, understood you, or given you wisdom, courage and discernment in any given situation. Break this down one word at a time. Doing so will cause your faith to grow all the while developing a grateful heart of thanksgiving and praise.
- The Lord says He experiences you. What do you think this means on a personal level in your own life?
- Have you ever imagine the Lord just standing there gazing at you to the point He is overflowing with joy? If not, now is the time.
