The Ultimate Secret

~ The Ultimate Secret ~ 

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone – to have a deep soul relationship with another – to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.

 But to a believer, God says, “No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with being loved by Me alone – with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me – to having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone.

See – Mark 12:30 ~ Psalm 27:4

 “Only as you discover satisfaction in Me will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.  You will never be truly united with another until you are united with Me – exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires or longings.

See – Jeremiah 29:13

 “I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing – one that you cannot imagine.  I want you to have the best.  Please allow me to bring it to you.  Just keep watching Me, expect the greatest things.

See – 1st Corinthians 2:9

 “Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am.  Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you.  You just wait.  That’s all.  Don’t be anxious.  Don’t worry.  Don’t look at the things others have gotten or that I’ve given them.  Don’t look at the things you think you want.  You just keep looking off and away up to Me, or you’ll miss what I want to show you.

See – Psalm 73:25

 “And then, when you are ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would dream of.  You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready, until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you, you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and this is the perfect love.

See – Psalm 16:11

 “And dear one, I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer you with Myself.  Know that I utterly love you.  I am the King.  Believe it and be satisfied.”

  1. Wow! When I went on the Journey in June, Mr. Gothard recommended this book to us… It reminds me of a book by Hannah Hurnard that I just finished reading — Hinds feet on High Places. Thanks Sara!

  2. Hey girls… if you liked “Hinds Feet…” then you really have to read the sequel, “Mountains of Spices.” It’s a beautiful story and I think I may even like it better than the first book. =) I have it if either of you would enjoy borrowing it.

Tell me what you think!
