ALONE WITH GOD: THE KEY TO WHOLENESS AND A FULFILLED HEART

Shortly after Billy Graham’s 80th birthday, Larry King interviewed him and said: “It must be rewarding to you to look back on your life and not have to live with regrets.” 

Here’s Dr. Graham’s compelling response:

“I am the greatest failure of all men. I was too much with men and too little with God. I was too busy with business meetings and even conducting services. I should have been more with God, and people would’ve sensed God’s presence about me when they were with me.”

Let’s not wait until we’re 80 to say that. 

You see, in spite of all of Rev. Graham’s accomplishments, he sensed there was more. The greatest thing man can still do with his time is to spend it in holy communion and solitude with God. 

And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. (Mark 1:35).

And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. (Luke 6:12)

Charles Spurgeon wrote: 

“King of kings, and Lord of lords, the ‘Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father. The Prince of Peace. Yea, he is altogether lovely.’ There are no flaws in Him. Jesus is lovely in the highest degree. Jesus is as lovely to my heart as to my head, as dear as He is good. He is lovely to my hopes: are they not all in Him? Is not this my expectation—to see Him as He is? But He is lovely to my memory too: did He not pluck me out of the net?” 

As David puts it in Ps. 84, “My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God”—the whole of the man seeking after the whole of the Savior; the whole Savior sweet and inexpressibly precious to the man’s entire being. 

May it be so with you and with me. Oh, to love Him wholly, and to love Him only, so that we have no eyes for other beauties, no heart for other loveliness since He fills our souls, and is to us “altogether lovely.”

  1. I think of Paul’s wonderful prayers for revelation, and to know the love of God! Just recently, thinking about this, because it’s so easy to lose focus of the real goal, I thought, how much we need Him here too; and, for me, not to be anxious about this, but to keep seeking–and learn to find that rest, and peace that can come only from Him–because of trusting!

  2. My dear sister in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY,

    I’m out to under the stars at the moment. In solitude, just laid down to relax after a busy work filled day- deliverance, after deliverance, after cleansing sections of land tainted by works of wicked men and spiritual dark forces. What a mighty blessing it is when one believes in OUR GOD, the ONLY GOD – THE CREATOR, THE GRAND I AM, ELOHIM THE ONE WITH NO BEGINNING NOR END THE FINAL POINT OF AUTHORITY OVER ALL THINGS IN EXISTENCE AND THOSE THINGS NOT YET IN EXISTENCE. FATHER OF CELESTIAL LIGHTS, FATHER OF MERCY, and UNDESERVEF KINDNESS, FATHER OF ALL MIRACLES FOR EVERYTHING HE DOES IS A MIRACLE. OUT of HIM flows fresh pure HOLY WATER, TIDALS waves of RESTORATION FROM DESOLATION, KING REDEEMER, COMMANDER OF ALL KINGS, WORTHY OF ALL PRAISES AND HYMNS WE SING, TOGETHER WITH ALL CREATION WE FORM A PEOPLE NATION- AS ONE BODY, IN CHRIST, BY CHRIST, THROUGH CHRIST, ETERNALLY MADE AND ETERNALLY SAVED FROM THE GRAVE, BECAUSE HE PAVED… NOW WE ARE HEAR, NO LONGER IN FEAR, YOU AND ME SIS, AS WE STAND UP AND DO NOT MISS, THE THINGS OF OLD, HE HAS MADE US BOLD…. JESUS IS OUR 24KARAT GOLD.

    IT IS A MIGHTY BLESSING TO SEE
    YOU BUSY WORKING LIKE A BEE

    KEEP BEING REFINED
    LET HIS GLORY SHINE
    THROUGH
    YOU
    LIKE
    A POWERFUL
    STREAM
    A POTENT TEAM
    FULL OF GODS MIGHT
    TO DESTROY THE DOGS OF THE NIGHT

    WHO HOWL ABOUT
    FULL OF DOUBT
    THEY KNOW THEIR TIME IS NEAR
    AND IT FILLS THEM WITH FEAR,
    AS THEY GROWL AND SNEER
    they want to call themselves seers

    What’s coming is near
    Tick tock
    Tick tock
    Goes the clock

    So I knock
    While they mock
    On the DOOR
    WITH MY KNEES ON THE FLOOR
    TO HELP ALL THOSE I CAN
    GET TO THE PROMISED LAND
    IN JESUS CHRIST WE TAKE OUR STAND

    PRAISE GOD TOGETHER
    WE DO
    BECAUSE WE LOVE HIM WE DO

    LIFT THY HANDS
    WE R HEADED TO THE PROMISED LAND
    LIFT THY HANDS
    ON CHRIST WE STAND!

  3. I went off writing. I wanted to go back and thank you for your work on this piece. We know you work for Jesus and it shows in your words. But more importantly in your WORK, that stands behind your WORDS. That’s what FAITH is. WORK IN ACTION. Believers think a prayer every now and then is faith, like i used to think… That isn’t FAITH Thats just like putting kétchup on french fries..
    A ‘regular ‘ thing… That dont mean much. Real FAITH When a man or woman has it, born from GOD, MOVES THE AIR AND ALL PEOPLE BREATHING IT BY THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST. IT IS TO STICK ONE HAND IN A STREAM OF WATER AND BELIEVE THAT GOD JUST BEGAN A PURIFICATION OF THAT ENTIRE STREAM OF WATER, IT IS TO SEE THE FISHES IN THE STREAM REJOICE AT THAT MOMENT, FOR THEY RECOGNIZE THE HOLY SPIRIT PRESENCE OF GOD, SO THEY REJOICE BY SWIMMING HARDER, FASTER, JUMPING UP OUT OF THE WATER IN PURE JOY, THE WATER REJOICE TOGETHER WITH THE FISH, JUST AS OUR BODIES REJOICE AS WE BREATH IN FRESH AIR, SO DOES THE WATER AND THE FISH AND ALL LIVING THINGA IN IT AS THEY ENCOUNTER AGAIN A MAN OR WOMAN WHO BELIEVES IN THE LORD ALMIGHTY, CONTINUE ON SISTER, TRANSFORMING EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING AROUND YOU FOR THE GLORY OF GOD ALMIGHTY, MAY HE BE WITH YOU MORE SO, AND FILL YOU WITH A MIGHTY INTERNAL STRENGTHENING WHILE FILLING YOU WITH A PEACE THAT IS ETERNALLY STILL, THAT YOU RECOGNIZE IS ALMIGHTY GOD, REGARDLESS WHAT IS going on in the exterior, whether ur hands are flayling about, whether your feet are kicking whether cara are speeding by, whether 100 people are screaming, and 1,000 demons are lined up shooting bows and darts, it don’t MAKE A DAM, BECAUSE ON THE INSIDE OF YOU- YOU NOW HAVE A ROCK SOLID ETERNAL STILLNESS BASED UPON THE ROCK SOLID FOUNDATION OF JESUS CHRIST. NOW AS YOU MOVE ABOUT, FEEL THAT STILLNESS, IT IS UNDENIABLE, ITS DIFFERENT THAN BEFORE, AS NOW YOU CAN TELL MORE CLEARLY BETWEEN THE INNER STILLNESS AND ALLLLLLLL OUTSIDE MOTIONS, DISTRACTIONS, ACTIONS, AND EVENTS, YOU NOW HAVE BEEN ELEVATED BY THE ALMIGHTY HAND OF GOD FOR YOUR WORK, DEDICATION, LOVE, COMMITMENT, AND FOR HELPING THOSE COME TO CHRIST. GLORRRRRRRYYYY TO GOD!
