#HeartCheckTuesday: No Plan B

#HeartCheckTuesday: No Plan B

One of the greatest secrets to intimacy with God is to come to Him as our only source of help and hope. The heart posture of “no other options to default to if You don’t come through”. God loves it when you look to Him alone for deliverance and the inverse is also true: His jealousy is kindled when we entertain other saviours. There are other saviours campaigning for our allegiance. Everywhere we turn, the gods of our culture are promoting their powers. Television commercials promote many alternatives for relief: “Try me! Let me heal your pain. I am your answer. Look no further. Come to me, and I will deliver you. Something dynamic happens in your spirit when you look at some of those sources of deliverance and say, “No! God alone is my deliverer!” Not only is our spirit tenderized through such singular affection, but the response of the Father in a way He moves upon our heart is quite without parallel. People who take God as their first and only choice come to God first in their time of need. They seek God’s face and wait on Him to receive directives for the course to take. They stay until God gives a marching order and when God gives you His word, then fasten your seat belt!. You are in for a ride because you are now in the God zone. It’s here we find the element of the miracle. Your role is to gaze upon Him, love Him, and grow in patience and faith; His role is to loose resurrection power in His time and way. This is the “single eye” to which Jesus pointed. Jesus said, “If therefore thine eye be single, your body will be full of light” (Matthew 6:22). When your eye is focused on God alone as your help, you open yourself to the fullness of light He destines to fill your entire being. In experience God will test us to see if we truly own His realities. When the storm hits, run into the secret place, establish your spirit, and say to Him with unwavering resolve how Him alone is your source of help and expectation. Dear HeartChecker, before you cry to any man, ask God!(Culled from Secrets of the secret place by Bob Sorge with some emphasis)
