God:doesn’t do well with sharing His glory…
Isaiah 44:8 (KJV) “Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God”.
Relationships today are very capricious and misleading; there are varying levels of deceptions which people bring to a relationship which can be harmful to the growth or longevity of the union.
Some folks have expectations that aren’t met or defined when they enter relationships, so as it progresses, instead of growing and weeding out the things which occur, accusations and festering occurs which brings about a breeding ground of distrust.
Many times we take this attitude into our spiritual relationship with God and instead of Him leading as it ought to be, we try to be dominant in this relationship; not only do we bring an attitude of egoism, but also, when He doesn’t succumb to our demands, we run about trying to find other gods to form intimacy with, leaving Him who has created us in His image.
That is the mentality of us humans; yet God is stating that He is the only God and there is none beside Him; even if there hadn’t been a tomb of words written on Him and His interaction with men from the beginning of time, there would only be Him because He is the creator of it all.
Anything after Him is a substitution or an attempted duplication and we have to serve the true and living God for it to make any kind of sense. The culmination of this all is a meeting with Jesus; have you met Him, did he reveal Himself to you, is your heart overtaken with the manifestation of His presence?
Answer these questions and see a deeper quickening and need for more of Him appear within you. Jesus is just as real to the believer as He was to those who walked with Him when He was on earth through the manifest power of the spirit of God.
Beloved, come with no expectation and see Him fill you with all He has to offer and that is the God who made us and is calling us for His purpose today.
