I declare in Jesus’ name, I am a Proverbs 25:2 king. I want your glory, Father, to fall on me. I want the honor of knowing you more and deeper. I proclaim your revelation word over myself today that you would fill me with your spirit and wrap your presence around me.
In 1990, NASA deployed the Hubble Space Telescope from the space shuttle Discovery. Scientists were determined to see what had never been seen before.
I think God gets excited anytime somebody does that – reaches for the undiscovered.
At one point, they aimed the telescope toward a very dark, seemingly empty part of space and waited 10 days for the images to be beamed back. They found that what they thought was desolate space, was anything but as millions, even billions of celestial bodies were discovered. They counted over 1,500 galaxies, each containing millions of stars.
How patient God is for us to finally discover what He has always had there for us! I don’t know about you, but I’m not like that. It is amazing to me that He is so anxious for us to see some facet of His character or kingdom, and so patient with our ability to find it. He’s just awesome.
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. – 2 Peter 3:8
This verse specifically speaks of God’s patience with us. It is how long He will wait for us to come to Him, or to discover something new about Him in our quest for upgrade.
He also loves it when we discover something new about His creation. The Sombrero Galaxy was hanging there in the sky for a very long time before someone looked up and said, “Wow!” The entire North American continent and western world sat silent for a long time before Europe heard of it. El Capitan in Yosemite Valley stood rock solid in pristine condition for eons before the Paiute Indians made their camps there.
It took adventurous people who would not be confined to what was known to unlock these things for the rest of us. So it is with the things of God.
“This is God’s Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as God: ‘Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.’” – Jeremiah 33:3 (The Message Bible)
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO MAKE GOD SMILE BY REACHING FOR THE UNDISCOVERED. GO AFTER A NEW REVELATION OF HIM. HE LOVES TO BE FOUND AND WILL BLESS YOU MIGHTILY FOR YOUR EFFORTS.
