Like a waterfall

…and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:50 NIV)

Don’t let this be you.

This not meant to be your destiny.

He believes in you.

Believe in Him.

He has wonderful plans for you.

You are loved by Him.

Not just a little bit.

He doesn’t just tolerate you.

He loves you with a passion.

He isn’t halfhearted about you.

When you embrace Him you embrace everything good.

This is your destiny.

But it is your choice.

He offers it to you.

Accept it.

That is all you have to do.

Accept and embrace His love for you.

Today and always.

It will rush over you like a waterfall.

He stands knocking

This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous (Matthew 13:49)

He doesn’t want you to be disappointed.

That you have been barking up the wrong tree.

Seek Him, now.

Turn you affection to Him while you can.

Allow Him in.

He is so full of love for you.

A day does not go by when He doesn’t think of you.

You are always on His mind and in His thoughts.

Give a thought to Him.

Turn your attention to Him.

One day there will come a time when you will be at the centre of His gaze.

There will no walls to hide behind.

Be ready now.

Take it seriously.

Don’t be put off.

Now matter what has happened.

There are no excuses.

He holds his hands open to you.

He knocks on the door.

But it is up to you to open it.

He won’t break it down.

The knocking may be loud or soft.

Whatever, just open the door.

It will be the best thing you have ever done.

The love in His eyes.

The love in His voice.

It will overwhelm you.

First be filled with His love

When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad away.  (Matthew 13:48) 

Be a good fish.

What does that look like? 

How do you know if you are a good fish?

Ask Him. 

All those loved by Him are good fish. 

Those that reject His love are the bad fish. 

They do not want to love. 

Love is not in them because only He is pure love. 

This may seem harsh and black and white. 

But He knows who are His. 

So love, love like He does. 

Receive His love. 

Be a lover of God. 

Let Him love you completely and utterly. 

He loves you deeply.

Allow His love to plumb the depths of your heart. 

He is worth it. 

You are worth it. 

The world is waiting for a love like His. 

He will love others through you. 

But first be filled with His love.

Do it with Him

“Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish.” (Matthew 13:47)

There is no one like you. 

He made you unique.

Wonderfully made.

He didn’t make a mistake.

Nor got the plans upside down.

You weren’t a guess.

Nor an accident.

He created you for purpose. 

His Kingdom, His purpose.

He wants you to fulfil your destiny.

He will help you every step of the way.

He won’t do it all for you.

But He will do it all with you. 

He hasn’t left you as an orphan.

Let Him show you what He is like. 

He will then show you what you are like.

No pretending

When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. (Matthew 13:46 NIV)

The cost is relative. 

What does it mean to you?

How much does it mean to you? 

Does He all consume you?

You know Him.

He knows you.

His love for you is undiminished. 

It hasn’t faded over time. 

Is that true for you? 

Your love means everything to Him. 

He never holds back His love. 

It is genuine and consistent. 

You are never far from His thoughts. 

Ever mindful and ever concerned. 

He has your best interests at heart. 

Where do your interests lie?

Be passionate as He is passionate. 

Fully embrace Him. 

His arms are open wide. 

You are of infite value to Him. 

Too precious to treat you lightly. 

To loving to crash and take over. 

He has no interest in controlling you. 

He just want you to know Him.

Deeply and sincerely. 

Without pretence.

Deep calls to deep

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. (Matthew 13:45 NIV)

What are you searching for?

Is He what you are looking for?

Look deep, for there you will find Him.

Not hidden.

But search Him out.

Seek Him with all your heart.

He is not far away.

Your joy will be a delight to Him.

As you discover that pearl.

It will be more precious than anything.

You are so precious to Him.

You are His great find.

He is searching for you.

When He finds you He will rejoice over you.

Don’t hide yourself.

Call out to Him.

He is never far away.

He will hear your call and come.

Leaving the other 99 to find you.

What is your passion?

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. (Matthew 13:44 NIV)

Without passion there is no motive.

If you are truly hungry then you will pursue until satisfied. 

What will it cost you?

Nothing, if it a passion and desire. 

The cost is the value you place on something. 

God does not rob you. 

He isn’t after your money.

He is after your heart. 

He wants you to have the same passion as He does. 

He cares and He loves. 

Deeply and unreservedly. 

What do you care about?

What are you passionate about?

This is more than just getting excited.

It is more than just doing what you like. 

A passion overwhelms.

There is no thought of cost.

Embrace Him

He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough.” (Matthew 13:33 NIV)

Sometimes it requires a little effort from you.

What He has done in you should affect all of your being.

The yeast affects the whole dough.

There isn’t one part that is unaffected.

Just because you hear His word to you.

Doesn’t mean that you have embraced it.

You have to work it into every area of your life and being.

Your body and mind have to follow suit.

They need to be affected by the yeast of heaven.

Don’t compartmentalise.

Don’t separate out the yeast from the dough.

The bread won’t rise.

You are meant to arise and shine.

You can’t hide, reject or ignore what He has said.

Embrace what He says.

Embrace Him.

As you go along

Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” (Matthew 13:32)

You may see Heaven as something big and beyond comprehension.

It is but it starts as a small seed in someone’s heart.

Yet if allowed to, it will grow and grow.

How can something so small be compared to something so powerful?

Even fully grown it isn’t as tall as the biggest tree.

It is basically a large garden plant.

You are meant to grow.

That seed should grow inside of you.

That others will be blessed through you.

That will make His heart glad.

Don’t despise the day of small beginnings.

Take the first step.

The first of many.

Don’t plan your route.

Let Him show you as you go along.

A better understanding

He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. (Matthew 13:31)

He wants you to understand what His kingdom is like. 

He has to speak in parables because your mind struggles to understand the spirit realm. 

He uses simple imagery to create a mental picture. 

With a semblance of what it looks like. 

The kingdom is to be experienced not just understood. 

He likes to talk to you just the way we need to hear.

Whatever language you speak or understand.

Through music, films, the Bible, walking in nature… 

He keeps it simple so that you have a chance to understand. 

There are so many facets to His Kingdom. 

It is beyond your logical comprehension. 

You need His help to understand this significance.

To have a better thought.
