I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first commandment: to love my Lord, my God, with all my heart. I don’t want the reputation that I love God, I don’t want to write songs about loving God, I don’t want to talk about loving God. I want to actually love God. When I close my eyes, I want my heart to move. When I close my eyes and I look at Him, I want to feel alive on the inside. I want to look at Him with a fire in my heart and it’s real.

Why does the Lord Christ sometimes hide Himself and His glory from the faith of believers? There are many reasons but I will mention only one. He does it to stir us up to search for Him with all our heart. Our wretched laziness so often makes us neglect meditation on heavenly things. But Christ is patient with us. He knows that those who have seen something of His glory, although they have not valued it as they ought, cannot bear His absence for long.

→ What Would It Take To Make Jesus Amazed? (It's Not As Hard As You'd Think)


Can you imagine actually being there for some of the miracles of Jesus? Seriously, close your eyes for a minute and think about what it would have been like to watch a dead kid get up out of his coffin. Or can you imagine being there, watching Jesus actually multiply bread and fish for thousands of people from a handful of food? Wow. What about those times where Jesus healed every single person in the town? Or what about the time He instantaneously calmed a raging storm? I mean, that had to have been so freaky and stunning. We’ve all been in the middle of those kinds of storms where it feels like the whole world is buckling and tearing apart at the seams and Jesus just spoke into one of those, told it to hush and the world became instantaneously calm and still. Wow. When that happened, Matthew says the disciples were amazed. Of course they were! That’s amazing! Here’s what’s cool: Earlier in that same chapter, Matthew uses that same word to describe Jesus. Something happened that made Jesus feel just as blown away as the disciples did when He calmed the storm. So what was it that Jesus marveled at? A Roman soldier who asked for Jesus’ help because he had a sick servant amazed Jesus. Our Lord said, I’ll come and heal your servant. The soldier said, “No need. I understand authority. You don’t have to come. You’re in charge of my problems, like I’m in charge of my troops. Just say the word and this sickness will obey you.” Finally. Somebody got it. If you realize Jesus is over all your troubles and you simply trust Him to handle them His way, you’ll rock His world.

The more we are concerned with what God thinks of us, the less we will be worried about what others think of us. And when we are no longer enslaved to people’s opinions of us, we are free to love and serve them as Christ loves us—with no strings attached.

When God is not greatly praised, it’s only because we don’t think He’s that great of a God. When our worship is small, it’s because our concept of God is small. When we offer God little-bitty sacrifices, it’s because we’ve somehow reduced Him in our hearts to a little-bitty God. Our vision has become clouded, our hearts distracted.
