Passionate Pursuit depicts both the passionate pursuit of the One who loved us first and our passionate pursuit of Him and His kingdom.
O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me. Psalm 63:1, 8 NKJV
The battle lines have been drawn, the siege has begun, and the Lord says, “Remember who you are in Me. And if you don’t know who you are in Me, ask Me for revelation (Jer 33:3)… and don’t be shy about asking. Ask and ask quickly. There is an urgency in this time, it is important that you know your identity in Me. You were bought with a price, My blood was shed for you and My blood speaks. My blood cries out for My kingdom to come and My will to be done in the earth.”
And He reminds you, “I love you beloved. I call to you and ask you to move forward with Me. Press forward with Me. Do not say it is to hard. Ask instead for My strength, ask for My help. When did I ever ask you to do go it alone? I asked you to walk with Me. Do not concern yourself if you do not feel 100% unity with others, seek 100% unity with Me, and allow the others do the same. ”
The silk in this image is is Isaiah 54. The colors in it are ox blood red representing living sacrifice, amber representing fiery passion, and mahogany brown representing warrior’s heart [praise in the mouth and sword in the hand (Psalm 149:3-7)]. The heart of this silk is restoration, just as His blood restores us to the Father.
May Your passionate pursuit overtake us and may our passionate pursuit of You please your heart and bring glory to Your name.
