Sweet Spirit…


Good morning, Family:

The joy of the Lord is our Strength. What a joy it is to experience the beautiful presence of the Lord. I remember, when I was in my late teens, I would spend hours in my room reading God’s Word, singing worship and praise songs to the Lord, and praying and talking to the Lord.

I could always tell the very instant when the preseence of God would enter the room. There were times when I would lift my hands and cry. There would be other times when I would collapse to my knees and lay prostrate on the ground, because the glory of the Lord was so strong. In those times, after the presence left, I would fall into a deep sleep. I would wake up feeling so refreshed. It would literally feel like I fell asleep in the arms of the Lord.

Psalm 16:5-11 

New International Version (NIV)

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
    even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    nor will you let your faithful[a] one see decay.
11 You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Love on God extra today. Ask God to teach you how to draw close to him. I pray that you will grow more and more each day.

Go in peace, while serving the Lord.
