It’s 12:57am. Earphones plugged in. Trying to fall asleep. Rita Springer’s ‘When I think about the Lord’ on repeat. All i really feel like doing right now is worshipping. That’s what this song does to me. BUT everyone else is sleeping and i don’t want to disturb. Tears of gratitude well up in my eyes. I lay on my bed with such excitement in my Spirit. This song 🙂 you know how some things can only be felt and never explained? What this song does to me is exactly one of those things.
Have you ever wondered about God’s love? Try as i might, I just can’t figure it out. You know in those movies where one person is doing whatever they can to push the other away because ‘they’re just too good to be true’? And the other person tells the one person, ‘I don’t care what you say or do, i’m not going anywhere. I’m always here for you. And when you need me, you know exactly where to find me.’That and even more is the God kind of love! You and I are not meant to understand it. We’re are meant to accept it and experience it in different dimensions. Fall in love.
And guess who gave me this scenario? THE HOLY SPIRIT! [How cute is He? :)]
I just want to send this message to whoever is reading this because i know i’m still awake at 2:20am for a reason. God loves you! I don’t know how many times you might have heard those three words but i’m saying it one.more.time. He adores you! The God who has the power to destroy this perverse generation but instead decided to come down in a visible image to endure disrespect, mockery, contempt from the very people He came to save just so that these same people would be rescued from death and eternal suffering is waiting on you. [Can you just take a moment to digest that?] He is waiting on you because you know where to find Him. He never leaves.
Jesus Christ told the disciples in John 14:16;
‘And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, to help you and be with you FOREVER! The Message versions has such a cute translation. It says;
‘I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.’
Jesus Christ could have so easily left us alone you know? After all, He made the tough decision to lay aside His majesty to come and die for such a sinful generation and instead of appreciating Him, they mock him and treated him like a nobody. He could have easily said, ‘you know what? my work here is done so goodbye!’ But what did he do? He was so kind and so loving to ‘talk to the father and ask Him to provide us with another Friend, so that we will ALWAYS and FOREVER have someone with us’
What a friend we have in Jesus!
The friend who is our everything! He who rebukes you when there’s the need to, cracks the funniest jokes, gives the tightest, most comforting hugs, commands His angels concerning you. He says in Ezekiel 36:9;
‘See, I care about you, and I will pay attention to you.’
I know i have found my security blanket in Him!
You can too! 🙂
I’m off to bed now 🙂 I have to wake up at 6:00 to go to my lovely, newly found, place of worship!
