Here are some random quotes from the book “Compelled by Love” by Heidi Baker; quite challenging to the spiritual mind -I encourage all who long to walk deeper with Jesus into the depth of the vast ocean even in the midst of storm, where the fishes are, to read this book. She speaks of the love of Christ!
Children’s key: purity of the heart
My prayer is for all of us to stay hidden inside God’s glorious heart of love until we are manifesting His nature as sons and daughters, living , breathing, moving, healing, and life giving, just as Jesus was. As we are purified, we will see God more clearly. As our hearts become pure, our vision becomes clearer.
The fire of His eyes
Every time I have had a heavenly vision, I have been undone by Jesus’ eyes of love. They are like liquid flames of fiery love. And as that scripture just said (Song of Solomon 8:6-7), many waters cannot quench that love.
When He looks into us with His eyes like a flame of fire, eternity is branded on our hearts. Once we behold His face, we become more like Him, and then we can dwell in the fire of His embrace. (Isaiah 33:14-15)
Eat for a nation
When everything Jesus has is ours we can start to feed the nations. Attending a conference is not enough. You must eat and drink until you are dripping Jesus. You must be so full of Him that you start leaking Jesus. You must eat a lot-more than twice a year. You must eat enough for a nation.
The poor have taught me about hunger and thirst and my own need. In order to function and to make it through one day, I have to spend hours every day alone with my Jesus. I must have His presence or I know I cannot survive. I am always on my face in His presence. So I stay hidden in His heart, soaking in the secret place.
When I come up from that secret place I sometimes watch blind eyes turn from white to grey to brown as King Jesus heals them; I watch thousands of unreached people bow their knees to Jesus. And I watch previously miserable abandoned children swing on swing sets as they sing joyful songs to the Lord. My life must be one lived out of fullness and abundance. I will never claim to have anything on my own.
We only do what we do for Him in Jesus through Jesus with Jesus, to Jesus. We make ourselves totally available to Him. what joy to give one’s life for love.
