The Glory of God…

It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to seek out a matter…

Scripture tells us this…

Why?

Because God is seeking to woo people to Himself…

He gave us curiosity…

Curiosity killed the cat but it is not the same with our relationship with the Lord…

Divine Curiosity I will call it…

We are pulled by God into His Presence through the curiosity which He has given us…

Curiosity to know and understand how things work – and this becomes curiosity to know Him, to know who He is and why He does what He does…

I want to know this and as I come to deeper understanding of this I love Him more…

I do…

“Why Lord?”

“Why Lord?” is not a bad question…

Yes, if we’re shouting it at the Lord and full of sarcasm and don’t really expect Him to answer but just want to vent then I suppose that’s not so beneficial but if there’s anything in our venting which genuinely seeks to understand why then I believe the Lord will answer this desire because it is placed within us by Himself…

He placed it there and He placed it there to draw us to Himself…

that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; (Acts 17:27 NASB)

The idea being like a blind person groping or feeling around them to try and find something they are looking for – this is what God designed us to do – it was a way of re-directing us back to Himself – for where else do we go – where else can we go when all “turns to custard”?…

🙂

If there is any question which we are “too scared” to ask God, if there is anything which is “too hard” to talk to God about or anything which we just “can’t trust ourselves” to “go there” or we avoid it or we try to “run away” from it or it’s just “too hard” then we have to ask ourselves – “Is this right?” “Should I be feeling this way?” – and the answer is “No!”…

🙂

Running away doesn’t help…

Facing issues helps…

Facing realities or facing potential deceptions helps…

Not running away – not creating a blockage in our minds which “blocks out” thinking about a certain subject – there is nothing “too hard” for God – there are “hard things” – no doubt – there are – but there is nothing too hard for God – He knows everything and He has all wisdom and all understanding and all knowledge – there is nothing too hard for Him…

Even His word isn’t “too hard” for Him – He knows all things – He knows the end from the beginning and tells us in His word that He declares the end from the beginning, i.e. He’s hidden “secrets” in His word which will stand right until the end of time – prophetic words which have been “locked up” “until the time of the end”, He has hidden these things there for us to discover if we will “come in” to His Presence with our questions and ask in honesty – not in fear – before His Throne…

We are all guilty of this…

I am just encouraging us all – myself included – to come boldly before the Throne of Grace with “every little thing” which bothers or perturbs us about God and “have it out” and keep “having it out” until He gives us revelation – for revelation is what we need…

He has never let me down…

I’ve let things “hang out”…

I have…

I know another who has let things “hang out” and I know that this person has benefited from that…

Letting things “hang out” is risky but it is rewarded…

You look “stupid” sometimes but even in the act of “losing face” and “looking stupid” somehow you receive insight from God and freedom (the Lord will give you wisdom as you read this)…

So I encourage us all – talk to God about everything – everything – nothing is too small and nothing is too great – everything is the same to the Lord and He delights to reveal truth to our innermost being as we humble ourselves to come before Him with our concerns, with our confusion – with our inability to understand what is going on – and ask – He speaks back to us…

I’ve developed the habit of emailing myself…

Sounds strange?

I email myself conversations which I’m having with the Lord – He told me it’s OK and He’s protecting our conversations – I know this…

He speaks back to me as I’m asking Him things – I touch type – and I record His answers and then read them over afterwards whenever I need to…

It helps me as I honestly don’t have anyone else whom I can talk to about some of these issues…

They are between me and the Lord…

It helps me…

He is my Mentor…

And I talk to Him about everything…

I get a lot of comfort from this…

And know that you will too…

Love you,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
