Walking through the woods at night, the darkness is cut by the beam of a flashlight~ Jesus light is like that. There is a moon seen through the branches above, but it’s light is scattered and ineffective in following the path. We come to a clearing of sorts.

An almost full moon gives light to a field dotted with rock formations.  We climb up one rock and find shapes comfortable for sitting. Jesus sits on the top; my seat is somewhat lower and has a form allowing me to rest back and look up. An atmosphere of silence reigns broken only by a cricket symphony. Some stars are twinkling; one moves across the sky~ a satellite perhaps? An airplane flying very high? But beyond is what fascinates me. Away from any man made lights, the heavens hold a beauty and mystery of their own. Hubble Telescope revealed the universe goes on and on containing beauty and forms foreign to and surpassing any on the earth.

Sitting on the rock does not reveal the far reaches, but the myriad of stars create a canopy of awe and splendor. A canopy suggests a covering, but actually these heavenly bodies have no end, no ceiling, they seemed to go on and on forever. The allure is not just their grandeur, but the seeming infinity of their reach. And I know only God is mighty enough to have created this wonder. Usually Jesus teaches me with words when we go on excursions, but tonight He allows the magnificence to speak for itself.

Jesus knows experiencing something is far more effective than just using words. In the Bible book of Ephesians Paul prays for the people about knowing the great love of God:

Ephesians 3:16-21 (AMP)
16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory
to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man
by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide,
make His permanent home) in your hearts!
May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,

18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp
with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love]
what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];

19 [That you may really come] to know
[practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ,
which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience];
that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God
[may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and
become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

The darkness renders a feeling of being totally alone in the universe where the glory of the heavens is experienced without distraction. It feels like the jeweled magnificence of the skies reaches down within my soul and fills me with awesome wonder. Speaking of the universe or even seeing the fantastic Hubble pictures cannot duplicate this experience. I have encountered my marvelous God in His Creative glory flooding me with Himself.

Jesus looks at me with that gentle loving smile as though to say, “See, now do you get it?” Indeed I do. God is magnificent in His glory far beyond my reach, yet is He also my loving Father touching me with His Presence, filling me with His love.

I am complete in the moment.

Have you experienced the love of God? When was the last time You felt filled with His love?
