"I keep hearing a phrase, in my spirit, particularly as leaders... "Wholly Holy." Not "Holy, Holy" as we praise God because He Is Holy. Not as the heavenly beings fly around the throne of God, crying, ‘Holy, holy!’ But "Wholly Holy" - Completely holy. Holy in every area of our lives. A new level of Holiness. That level above reproach. That level of Holiness where people don't wonder, "Yeah but what's she really like - behind closed doors? What's he really like when no one is watching? What's she really like when the pressure is high?"
Question: But they wonder instead...
"How do I get to know God so intimately? Can I know God that intimately? Can I? Can I walk with Him in that place where He really speaks to me as His friend? Where He shares His secrets with me? Where He makes me 'Wholly Holy?' Where circumstances are simply an opportunity for God to Be God in my life? A 'Wholly Holiness' that says, 'God Be God in my life! Let me move aside and watch You work it all out! Show me how to walk in that 'Wholly Holiness' that has perfect faith in You, God and in Your Word and Your ability to do what You said You will do! That place that recognizes and shuns every temptation of the enemy, even a place where there is no attraction to anything that is not of You, God!'"
That level that makes others want to know - to truly know - to thirst after with a desperate thirst for the things of ---- God! Where they are taught of Him! Where they commune with Him! Where they hear Him tell them of His glorious love and plans for them. Where He completes them so they are not looking for that in any person. Tom Cruise was wrong! Because NO person can ever complete us - except Jesus!
That level that emanates the Holiness of God, the Holiness that He has indeed called us to. Not in and of ourselves, but by Him truly shaping us, molding us, taking our hearts of stone and giving us a new heart, a heart of flesh, a heart after God, a heart that... whenever it speaks, people are glad - people are healed - people are restored and made whole - people are refreshed! Because out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. A heart that has been made glad by Him! A heart that has been healed, restored and made whole and refreshed by the Mighty Healer Himself! A heart that has been in the presence of the Most High God!
Rev. M.L. Fauss once said, "Every time you speak, your heart is on parade!" I don't know about you, but, I want people to be glad when my heart is parading around in front of them!
I am seeking God's "Wholly Holy!" So that others will seek God's "Wholly Holy."
