Constant God - Whatever the thought, the deed, the possibility - there is God, always there, knowing our thought and awaiting our request for His
ME AND HIM
I am now with Him. The Book, the local church and my family all facilitated the introduction. Even then, it literally took a lifetime for me to accept Him in every area of my life. But that is where I am. I am finally in Him and He in me.
To arrive here is truly an awesome happening given all that is arrayed against coming to the knowledge of Him. There was never any time to settle down and know Him.
Too much external teaching!
Confessions and doctrines and defenses of the faith, end time studies, how to recognize the last day, and new understandings of how to recognize the Anti-Christ (again and again and again . . .) and of course the Illuminati and all mysterious secret societies.
Following Christian leaders as they anointed failed secular leader after failed secular leader, some standing solidly against Scripture in both words and works.
Useless activities and studies crowding my thoughts, making me believe that attendance at one more rally might do it for me.
But most of all making me wonder, "Surely if God exists He must know better". And as I know deep inside He does exist, the problem must be in the way I am seek Him.
Writings by so many powerful Christian leaders that only rarely did I turn to The Book for absolute guidance. They told me how to understand it and what it really meant.
I wondered about the numerous translations and versions. Each slightly different in meaning and each succeeding translation improving on what God is saying to us in this day.
It seemed that we really didnít believe that God knew about today and made plans to ensure His word could be understood even now.
And in this time of extreme confusion and distraction He sent the Holy Spirit1 to me to steady me in His way. And there is no asking, not because I am above asking but because I would not know when to ask. Knowing so little it is not possible to know what I donít know. This goes beyond James.2I simply receive. This is the seeking I am to do.
The Holy Spiritís job is to reveal to us the Word of God. The Book is often used in this process, but is not required. Although revered, The Bible and succeeding translations only hinder the work of the Holy Spirit by putting before us what may have been communicated to a specific individual to the exclusion of what God may want us to hear. The Holy Spirit solves this. There is no time or distance between us and God, and the Holy Spirit reveals the precise message to us God wants intends for us.
Are there challenges from the traditionalists who insist any message from God can only replicate what is already documented in The Bible? Of course there are. They believe that the Holy Spirit is no longer active. As The Book is complete, there is no longer any work for the Holy Spirit to do. I do not agree. My need proves them wrong.
But even before this, there was more. Long before I received that special witness for the problems I faced, I knew. Roman 1 confirms He had never left me without1.

26But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
James 1:6 (NKJV)
6But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
