Wanting Him

Abba is not interested in the human desire to be "tickled" by the supernatural.  Thrill-ride mentalities don't impress Him.

Rather, Abba wants us to approach Him seeking His heart.  Seek Him, not only His works.  Want Him more than anything; that's the key to entering the Holy Place.

Allow lavishing love upon Him daily (that's worship) to be the fiery, delightful, and passionate motivation governing your life above everything else; that's the key to entering the Holy of Holies.

Do you want to have that?  Do you want to Love Him like that all the days of your life, making intimacy with Him your highest goal and priority?

Some might ask - well, how is that righteous?  Moreover, how is that practical when there are other God-given goals and priorities in life?  My friends, it is both righteous AND practical when we let Abba set the goals and priorities for us. 
"But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."  (Matthew 6:33)
And what is "the Kingdom of God" Christ implores us to seek above all else?
"... for the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.  For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men."  (Romans 14:17-18)
It's Him!  Righteousness, Peace, and Joy are attributes of Abba's character.  In Heaven He sits, literally, enthroned on them!  So, as always, the scriptures support the sweet sonnets He whispers to our hearts, gently inviting us to seek Him and put loving, mushy, private time with Him first - ahead of everything else in our lives.

Daddy's not saying kick your friends, family, and job obligations to the curb - He's merely saying,  Put Me first.  Set our expression of love for each other as the priority of your day... of your life... forever, and I will cause all the other cookies on your sheet to line up like tasty treats!

That's what He's saying.

Oh, beloved!  Talk to Daddy about this, and you'll see that all you've ever wanted in passion and unbridled FREEDOM to express that passion in deep, fragrant, gushes of love for the Father is what He's planned for you all along!  You'll find that you crave Him because He craves you!
"Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth..." (Song 1:2a)
Jesus' kisses (and they are actual, beautiful, love-soaked kisses) impart Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding of the Father to our hearts.  The Lord's kisses contain Abba's Breath and fragrance for all who desire to partake of His "abundant life" through Holy Spirit's impartation to us of more and more of Him.

Do you sometimes feel like you've just got so much love to give, but nowhere to give it?

Give it to Jesus!  That's what you were created to do!  Lavish it upon Him in the true worship of your heart, and He will usher you right in to Abba's Throne room where the Godhead will take joy and utter delight in receiving all the love you have to give!  They will never grow tired of basking in your love poured out to Their individual and collective hearts, and They will splash over you in a veritable tidal wave of love's expression, in return!

Hallelujah!  Saints, I testify to Their indescribable Love and Mercy and Tenderness poured out upon all who will believe and approach Them in truth, willing to receive!  Amen!

All Daddy longs for us to do is come before Him on our knees with hearts that truly desire all of Him and nothing else.  Believe me, His Arms are open and waiting for you, and His heart will burst with Rivers of Joy and Gladness in bountiful greeting as you approach.  Amen!

Smiling in Jesus,
Daddy's Girl

[A prayer for you: Father, by Your power, I seal every word of this testimony in truth into the hearts and lives of all those willing to receive greater levels of intimacy with You and the Godhead, and I cover them all with the Blood of Jesus.  In Christ's Name.  Amen.]

"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord..."
(Romans 12:11b)
