Resource Sheet 2 – Breakthrough in Intimacy

By Steve and Lisa Swanson,

Prophetic Encouragement

“Get ready for a breakthrough unlike any other you’ve had in the past.” You may have had breakthrough in your finances, or in other areas of your life, but this is a breakthrough into intimacy. That’s right, the King Himself has invited you into His chambers to tell you the secrets of His heart. The Lord is about to woo you into deeper levels of love, revelation, and passion. You’re breaking through a barrier of flesh, and entering a new season of relationship with the Lover of your soul.

You may have distanced yourself from Him because of fear, or doubt of where you stand in your relationship with Him. Today the Lord says, “Let My perfect love cast away all your fears.” Drop any pre-conceived notions you may have in your arms now and prepare for a full embrace with the King.

Devotional Teaching

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1

The secret is out. The Lord wants relationship with us so badly, He would die just to be with us. In fact, He did. The cross made a way for us to enter into His chambers and abide in His presence.

Let’s look at Hebrews 10:19-20, where it says, “Having therefore brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of the Lamb, by a new and living way, which He has set apart for us, through the veil that is His flesh.”

When the veil of the temple was ripped in two, any barrier between you and Himself was left wide open. Now He beckons us to enter into His presence with boldness laying aside any notions that we can’t have access to Him. Our sins, were washed away by the “blood of the Lamb,” so now we can “draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil mind-set, and our bodies washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:22)

The only thing in the way now is us.

Given this truth, when we come to worship Him, we must believe that we have access to His presence, His heart, His Kingdom, His rest, and His revelation. He wants to share His secrets with us! He takes such delight in our desire to know more about Him.

A parent loves when a child takes interest in where they came from, or stories that only family members would know. So does our Heavenly Father. He loves for us to inquire of Him. Psalm 27:4 says, “One thing I have desired of the Lord and that I will seek, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord forever, to behold His beauty and to inquire of Him in His temple.”

Can you imagine how the Lord must feel when we inquire of Him? He might say something like, “I’m so glad you asked of Me, now that you’re here, I can’t wait to show you some other things too, I’ve just been waiting for you to ask.”

Deuteronomy 29:29 states, “The secret things belong to the Lord, but those things which are revealed belong to us and our children forever.”

He’s ready to reveal His heart to you–His heart that burns with passion for your affection. So next time you come to worship Him, “ask.” Ask of Him, to reveal the secrets of His heart. Ask Him to unveil deep truths about His nature, His character, and His passion for you. He’s just waiting to hear that sound of inquiry. Your Father loves you. He wants to spend time with you. He loves to be with you and share His heart with you.

Scripture Meditation

I encourage you to take the time, and really let the following chapters minister to you. May they reveal truths about your Savior, Bridegroom, and your King.

Psalm 27, Psalm 91 (especially verses 14-16, His response), Psalm 84, and Hebrews 10.

So draw near to Him and He will draw near to you!
