PURSUING ME WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART
Even though your lives have become parched in the waiting, you have endured the pursuit of the high calling so bravely, and with such longing. Even when the refining fires come, you welcome them because you know it means you are drawing closer to Me. Your loving courage is overwhelming to Me. You have not been satisfied with just My presence; you feel that only My appearance will bring healing. You are not pursuing gifts, ministries or learning. Your hearts are totally involved with desiring intense intimacy with Me. The more you experience My presence, the more you desire to actually experience the reality of Me. Oh, how you have ravished My heart with your love for Me!
I have watched you with tears in My eyes, when through all the times of testing and chastening, you still stood in the gap for your brethren, securing an open door for them into the Kingdom of God. Your own lives are like sacrifices that have been salted with salt. Because your taste is so salty, you bring conviction to those who are lukewarm. Restitution is coming to you, beloved ones, and you will see My face with joy. I also long for the veil between us to be torn asunder. How I will rejoice when Father says it is time for the restitution of all things.
“Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.” (Song of Solomon 1:4 KJV)
“My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” (Song of Solomon 2:10-13 KJV)
