How sweet is the presence of the Lord! I have been in a recuperation process from surgery. It has been going really well; but the muscle healing gets to aching in the middle of the night and wakes me up. So I usually get up and lay on the couch, take a small pill, and read. It’s a quiet time; it’s dark out. The other night there was a thunderstorm, and what began to glimmer in my mind was the Power of the Lord. Sudden flashes of light, crashing of thunder. As I lay there, I could feel the Presence of the Lord fill the room. How sweet it was! Slowly I heard the storm move on as the thunder became a soft rumble. My eyes closed, a smile appeared on my face, a sigh of complete contentment preceded a deep sleep.
Have you experienced this too? Our God is so good! Peace is a place that is sometimes hard to find these days in our world. But as we realize that God is in control, and there exists more than we can see with our 5 senses, we can find peace. Yes there is another “place”; it’s called the supernatural, or the Kingdom of Jesus. The Bible tells us so:
Colossians 1:13 (AMPC)
13 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
It's a "place" and if we have this truth planted deep in our hearts, our faith will lead us to a richer understanding of God’s promises! It allows us to live in peace, because we know that God loves us dearly and provides His promises to us.
By faith we reach out and take them for ourselves. When we understand God is sovereign, none of the evil happenings in the nations will prevail. We as Christians call upon our mighty God to protect us, to lead our President and other world leaders toward peace. We pray God to give wisdom and strength to our governments. Meanwhile, we can live with inner peace.
My friends, God told us~
Jeremiah 33:2-3 AMP
“Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is His name, ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’
There is so much our finite minds do not comprehend, but as we allow our faith and trust in God to expand, He will reveal more to us. You and I were born for such a time as this! There is so much potential in each of us! Let us drown ourselves in the love and wonder of our beautiful Lord God, and thus become all we were meant be!
