Art or the Artist?

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Stevens Criswell

"The heavens declare and tell of the glory of God, the skies display His craftsmanship..."
~ Psalm 19 ~

Sitting here with that 'aha' moment. 
That moment of being in awe of the creativity of an artist - but never knowing the artist. 

Needless to say, I am humbly reminded that the same goes with the beauty of creation - I can be in awe of the Creator's handiwork but truly not know Him. 

My eyes well up with tears as I can feel a glimpse of how He wants us to know Him so intimately. Not just knowing 'about' Him or what we "think" we know - but truly knowing Him through His Son, The Abundant Life giving Truth of the Waymaker Jesus, revealed by the Holy Refreshing Spirit of God - not just as our Rescuer but as The lover of our souls. 

He wants us to climb into the depths of His heart, where we will see a glimpse of His magnificent, holy face and wherever we go and whatever we do, the revealing of His glory takes place. 

Finding opportunities to be in His creative "love story" of hope - wooing others to their true destiny; sabotaging self, encouraging others as they receive the kisses of God through us revealing His hot pursuit of each of them. 

His matchless, endless and incomprehensible love through us with embraces of hope; words of life; quality time not measured in quantity but intentionality; acts of service with a cheerful, joyful heart and gifts from within that make room for the King of kings to enter our lives with refreshment as we pour out onto others never running dry; revealing His royalty, annihilating every tool of peasantry!

Let us continue in this intimate pursuit of our King - not waiting until we face tough times - but every moment - in our highs, mediums and lows - let's not just know His work but let us know Him by the Revealer, Who is the Holy Spirit revealing The Word of God in and through our lives.

He's waiting...
