The Road to Victory
Coming to Jesus is so simple, so powerful, and so life changing, yet believers are often kept from a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit by distractions and the daily cares of this life. Nevertheless, we must daily persist in seeking the Lord’s presence, because healing, restoration, and total recover are found in Him.
A.W. Tozer, called a twentieth-century prophet, had a great impact on the body of Christ. He said:
“If we progress spiritually, we must separate ourselves unto the things of God and concentrate upon them to the exclusion of a thousand things the worldly man considers important. We must cultivate God in the solitudes and silence; we must make the kingdom of God the sphere of our activity and labor in it like a farmer in his field, like a miner in the earth”.
The prophets longed for and never saw what we have in Christ Jesus, yet today so many Christians pass right by this deepening relationship. Moses came to the Lord and said, “I beseech thee, shew me thy glory” (Exodus 33:18). God answered Moses, “Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live” (33:20). The prophets longed to know God more and could not experience what you have in Christ today. We must not pass by the Lord and our very recovery, knowing that it is there but be too busy to pursue it.
The veil has been rent, and the way is open for you to boldly approach the throne of grace. The Lord said:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). He also said, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink” (John 7:37).
Are you thirsty for the Lord’s touch and presence in your life today? Jesus is the Source who can fill you. Like Ezekiel, you must go to the house of the Lord and drink. In the Lord’s presence, you will find all you will ever need. In Christ Jesus, you are fully accepted, fully redeemed, and fully forgiven.
