Enjoying INTIMACY with Him...



The word "intimacy" sounds like chocolate on the lips of a chocolate-lover, and it feels like a glass of milk shake or frapuccino on a very hot summer afternoon. In life we always want to get to that level of intimacy with our significant others, a place where there are no restrictions or no limitations, and where 'freedom' is the word of the day. When you share an intimate moment with someone, time seems to become minuscule and every single second becomes like a day...time becomes eternity. The words shared between two people in that moment of pleasure are like secret treasures found on a distant gold mine, which no one else can ever find. It is indeed in intimate moments that the most important discussions are held and the most important feelings are revealed and unfolded...as far as it is with the right person, at the right time, and at the right place...
.

Some days ago, I woke up early in the morning and there was a smile on my lips. It wasn't as if everything in my life was exactly in the order I wanted it to be at that particular point, but I woke up knowing that He was right there beside me. And then I began to sing aloud, because I knew it was God who was causing me to smile...and I began to sing songs to worship God. I felt like He was lurking within the shadows of my bedroom playing hide and seek with me. Haven't you ever felt an external presence that you can't see when you're worshipping or praying alone in your bedroom? Wow, I know I have! Sharing such intimate moments with God never fails. The bible says that He is our "First LOVE," (Rev 2:4 "nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first Love.") When God is your first love, then all other things fall into place with you. You feel saturated with His love all around you...


Intimate moments with God are times when you worship God and praise His Name. You call upon His Name and He answers you...you tell Him you remember all the things He's ever done on earth, from His creation to when He carried the cross for you. You tell Him that you remember every thing He's done for you and your family...from protection to food and shelter. You tell Him every morning you wake up that His creations cause you to burst into praise...everything outside your window glorifies God, from the birds chirping on the fence, to the grass wet with the morning's dew...then in that very moment you pause for a second and then you ask Him how He divided the red sea into two, and then you chuckle gently to youself and tell Him He's the only one that can do something like that. In intimate moments you tell your lover He's the greatest...so you tell God that He's the King of all kings, and the Lord of all Lords...El Eyon the Most High God. There is no other God that can EVER compare with Him. You laugh out loud as you remember how the gods of Dagon fell when they were placed beside the Lover of your soul. You then repeat after the psalmist that, "once has God spoken, and twice have you heard, that POWER belongs to God,"(psalm 62:11).


In intimate moments, your lover also tells you secret things, for the discussion is not just a one-sided thing. It is in this moment where God reminds you, just in case you had forgotten, that He formed you in a secret place (psalm 139) and that no one else was looking when you were formed. He tells you that He placed several gifts inside of you that He wants you to use to bring glory to the kingdom. He tells you He loves you with the whole of His heart and nothing the enemy can do will ever change that fact. He tells you He knows everything about you, He even knows the errors you've made, and He knows your delibrate acts of sin. He tells you to come clean and not to dwell in sorrow and pity, because He alone has the power to forgive. He tells you that all the plans He has towards you are good plans, but you have to be patient to wait for His "perfect timing" for He knows the exact accurate time for the plan to be executed...He tells you all these things and even more in times of intimacy...

I read this on wikipedia, "The meaning of intimacy varies from relationship to relationship, and within a given relationship. Intimacy has more to do with shared moments than sexual interactions. Intimacy is linked with feelings of closeness, safety, trust and transparency among partners in a collaborative relationship. For intimacy to be sustainable and nourishing it also requires trust, transparency and rituals of connection. Intimacy is both the ability and the choice to be close, loving and vulnerable. Intimacy requires identity development. You have to know yourself and your innards in order to share your self with another. Knowing yourself makes it possible to stand for yourself in an intimate relationship without taking over the other or losing yourself to the other."

Just imagine the beauty of sharing an intimate moment with your significant other, and then imagine sharing this moment with God...an intimate moment with God is on a higher level and transcends the feelings that can ever be felt with another human being...it is a moment to look forward to with every passing second. You can never leave an intimate moment with God the SAME way that you came, you will always leave saturated and satisfied...

Here's to enjoying your intimacy with Him everyday...
here's to loosing yourself completely
and coming to Him just as you are...

i got stuck on paragraph four Jaycee. that paragraph alone filled me up too overflowing...thank you for ministering.

disgodkidd said...

i just read curvyice's statement, and she took the words right out of my mouth

Jaycee said...

Thank you Jesus...God thank u sooo much!!! I'm excited at what God is doing and how He is moving in our lives. I pray that this type of intimacy will become PERMANENT and not temporary in your lives in Jesus Name, Amen. It is so NOT a coincidence that you felt how u felt as soon as u saw this...God knows why, He's been waiting for this moment in time...

Curvy...listen to the second song as well, guess what it says (and I pray this for you no matter what you've been going thru)...it says, "I will BE STILL and know You are God!!!"

Uzo said...

Oh wow....Another amazing post. There are really no words. I read this line by line and i understood what message you were reaching across. Here's to moving to that level of spirituality where intimate moments with God become the norm

It took me a while to get to that stage of intimacy with Him, but the moment i gained access to Him, i longed to be close to Him every now and then. He made me realize that even if and when i would reject Him, He would still be longing for when i would be back with Him. Thanks for sharing

You write with a very easy hand that does not come across as too preachy. It evokes so much tranquilty and peace in the reader.

One of my favourite hangouts.......

I really look forward to that level of intimacy. The problem is that we (I) live such "busy" lives that I wonder how possible that will be. It would definitely involve some sacrifice on my part and I can guess that it would neither be easy nor automatic at first.

Kafo said...

I'm with Atutupoyoyo on this one.
I've missed this

Thank you soooo much.

Now I have to be honest and say that I don't know this kind of intimacy, i haven't experienced it with Man or God but I long for it

feather said...

He does desire that intimacy with us and ongs that we loves Him deeple.

Jaycee said...

Even the mere thoughts of intimacy with God can be overwhelming...u may just resign to the fact that "it can't be possible," "who really DOES that?" But then again...as far as people have experienced it before, in all boldness I say that you (Uzo, kafo, bgh, atutupoyoyo, and feather) that YOU can definitely experience it from this point henceforth.

The bible says that "He who comes to God must first believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Coming to God is one thing, but actually BELIEVING He's REAL is another...it takes one giant leap of faith to wake up in the morning with songs of worship on ur lips and BELIEVE that He is actually HEARING and receiving your worship. This God that you CANNOT see...

But then when you're done with your intimate session, and you begin to feel His PRESENCE all around your bedroom...ur faith would have been bolstered to know that He must have been hearing you...and He knows exactly what He wants to do in your life, but you have to TRUST Him first...you have to start with BABY STEPS, before you can start walking...

oh my 1st love, I smile everytime I lay down to sleep, knowing I'm save in His arms. "I dwell in the shelter of the most High, so I rest in the shadow of the Almighty." (Psalm 91) I remind myself that the same way my significant other wont want to be ignored by me, is the same way that my precious Love doesnt want to. He gave me more than His heart, He gave me His Spirit, His life. Even when I try to play hard to get, He still pursues me, and is trying to tell me great and unsearchable secrets. (Jeremiah 33:3)

Jaycee you are a woman blessed by God, such words could only have been inspired by the Holy Spirit and I thank God that you hearkened to His call, and obeyed by sharing this! Thanks :)
