*That moment when God interrupts a conversation about Him to let you know He is part of the conversation!*
I greeted a friend in Walmart that I haven’t seen in a great while. She told me that I had been in her thoughts that morning and we began sharing about our lives and God.
Her husband joined us and pretty soon we were deep in “God sharing.” At one point as I felt myself begin to share God’s heart – the Holy Spirit of the Living God totally enveloped me.
I was overwhelmed…I couldn’t speak…my eyes became flooded with tears. It took a moment for me to be able to continue with sharing.
I treasure those moments of God reminding me He is as close as the next breath…as close as the next thought…as close as the next word. ❤️
Brothers and Sisters, you are NEVER alone! No matter where you are or what you are doing – God is there.
Whether you “feel” His presence or not, never doubt His continual love and presence in your life! And don’t be surprised if He decides to join you in Walmart!!
Beloved of God,
“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”
(Ephesians 1:16-23. ESV)
It is not by accident that the word taste is first and the word see is second in this Scripture!
When we taste something, we must put it in our mouths and chew on it. Most of the time we swallow it and it begins to work within us – giving us nutrition, health, and strength. (If we are eating those things that are good for our bodies.)
It is like that with our spiritual lives. When we study Scripture…when we meditate (chew) on it and let it become a part of us…it gives us strength and enables us to grow.
As we TASTE the Word and as we speak the Word — we begin to get a deeper revelation of the Lord — we begin to SEE that He is good!
We can talk about food — but we must actually taste it to know if that food is good.
We can talk about God — but it is not until we actually engage with God that we are able to understand and SEE that God is good. We engage with Him through Bible Study, Prayer, Worship, and Ministry.
As we TASTE and allow the Lord to fill us more and more — we will SEE that He is good! He is faithful! He is loving!! He is everything we need!!
TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD!!
