WFJ: Intimacy with Me is wisdom!

5 January 2010 5 Comments

My son, I can speak to you anytime, through anyone, and, as long as you are seeking Me, you will find Me! “Those that seek Me early shall find Me” (Prov.8:17), and will enter into a intimacy with Me that very few in this world know! Yet, it’s in this intimacy with Me that you learn wisdom! Most people rush through the day, running from morning to night without stopping to reflect on their life, on their path, on their actions, their words and interactions with others, and that’s the reason that most issues are not solved! People just keep adding issue after issue to their life, until it becomes a weight and a burden that is unbearable and they simply collapse under it!

Then, when the crash comes, it takes them a very long time to recover and get back to a so-called “normal” life. Many don’t even ever recover from their breakdowns and they turn to therapy, trying to go through a healing process, in order to be able to solve their issues and carry on with their lives. But that’s the result of not acting proactively, to avoid the collapse! How do you do that? By living in My presence …

Intimacy with Me, as the first thing that you seek when you first wake up in the morning, will equip you with the proactive wisdom that you need to face the problems of the day and to overcome them, instead of being taken away by the winds and the waves of adversity and crash under them! It’s like learning to climb and ride on a surf board that will take you over the waves and through the day with skilled capability, because you’re not holding the helm, but you’re letting My Spirit guide you and take you over them to the safety of My loving care.

I’m always there, and if you’re listening to My voice in your heart, you will find that I’m always speaking to you, leading you and guiding you throughout the whole day! Footprints
Just learn to enter into My rest, and I will carry you in My arms, as in the picture of that poem: “footprints in the sand”!

“Come unto Me, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
“We which have believed do enter into rest.” (Hebrews. 4:3)
“Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest.” (Hebrews 4:11)

It takes a conscious effort to enter into My rest, because your flesh would like to take things in your own hands and try to sort things out in your own wisdom, but as you “labor to enter into My rest”, you will find Me ready to take you in My arms and carry you through the day!  Then, you will experience what My Word means when it says that : “It is vain for you to rise up early and sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so I give My beloved sleep (rest)!” (Psalms 127:2)

In other words, you don’t have to “eat the bread of sorrows”, trying to carry the whole burden on your own, when I’m offering you rest in My arms, if you just “commit your ways to Me, and trust in Me” (Psalms 37:5) with your praise and prayers, first thing in the morning. But don’t stop with praise and prayer, carry on a little longer with a time of listening to My voice and writing what you hear in your journal, so that you can refer back to it throughout the day. This is where you will find wisdom and guidance, in your intimacy with Me! This is how you will enter into My rest, as My beloved one! I love you.

    Renato God has revealed to you what was known by the prophets of old and even our founding fathers of this country. When we spend intimate time with Jesus He will give us His wisdom and then the energy to complete the tasks He gives us. I love you my friend. Always remember, I am your brother in Christ.

  • Renato Amato (author) said:

    And so you are, David! Even though we never met face to face, I know in my heart that you are my brother in Christ and that we share the same intimacy with Him! Those who are not afraid to love Him with all of their hearts, get to experience His love in such a powerful way that they don’t have to do anything but rest in His arms, and let Him do the work through them! “It’s not I that live, but Christ who lives in me!”

    That’s me. I am always ready to handle whatever comes along. Too many years in the military and in law enforcement I suppose. Renato, the Lord led me to read this as I was journaling this morning to remind me to rest in Him. What a blessing. Through you, He spoke directly into my heart.

    Thank you. Blessings to you, your family, and your work for Him.
