As I spent time with the Lord this morning the song by Jesus Culture “Rooftops” came on. The chorus goes like this,
“So I shout out your name, from the rooftops I proclaim that I am Yours!”
This sums up my life right now.
Yesterday a prayer leader from a local house of prayer called me to ask how he could pray for my husband and I. Another time in my life my answer may have had “circumstantial” requests but now all I could answer was to have him pray that we are completely God’s. I don’t want to hold anything back from Him. I passionately long for everything to be fully yielded to my God; not only in words but in reality!
I hear this cry from so many at this time. Everything within them desires all to belong to Him. It is a hunger for Christ alone that is tangible and insatiable. Their prayers have turned from being focused on the “things of this world” to the One true desire that fills every other desire…Jesus.
There is such a longing for the face to face intimacy with God. Hearts are echoing the prayer of David,
“My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.” Psalm 27:8
The mercy of God has been extended to those who are crying out to Him. He is removing barriers, obstacles and places that have kept His bride from the fullness of knowing Him. Our precious Holy Spirit is removing the fear of complete surrender. Some of these fears are not conscious choices but obstacles that came through life experiences that created walls that stood against intimacy. In His mercy He is breaking these walls down.
I keep seeing in my spirit a scene playing before my eyes of the Lord taking His bride into His arms and just holding her, kissing her head and not letting go until every fear falls away. While I see this I hear her soul cry out the words, “I am Yours! I am Yours! I am Yours!”
The is a holy exchange taking place between the Bride and the Bridegroom. It is the divine exchange of desire and longing for one another. For lack of a better word it is a place of consummation (the point at which something is complete or finalized). It is yielding to oneness.
“My darling, I am yours, and you are mine, as you feed your sheep among the lilies.” Songs of Songs 2:16
Shout from the rooftops, “I am Yours!”
