Naturally, I am what they would call a feeler. I am acutely aware of how I feel almost every second and I am very likely to make a decision from how I feel and yes I have made terrible mistakes this way in the past. But now that I am in Christ, He has been teaching me what a gift it is to feel and because of my relationship with Him, and how much I have grown to know what His Presence, His voice, His leading looks like, feels like, He has been using my feeler personality to discern good things and bad things as well.
Of late, I have been feeling haunted, haunted by His Goodness. I almost feel like Moses when He asked God to show him His Glory in Exodus 33 Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” 19 And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 20 But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”
You know, we have it better than Moses and the Israelites had, we can now see God’s Glory in the Face of Christ and nothing says Glory than what He did for us on the Cross, than Him being raised from the dead and making us a New Creation. We can now enjoy The Father without fearing that He will strike us for our sins, but we can come to Him, to His throne of Mercy as we are invited to in Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
He has done so much for us, just by His Blood alone and this will always be the most favorite thing He has ever done for me, for it is the invitation for us to be reconciled to God, for us to be grafted into God’s Family, so much so that He gives us His most precious Holy Spirit to in dwell us and to be with us. Now, we can boast in Him for we have One who says of Himself that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Everyday, I wake up and my soul, my heart and my mind are drawn to Him, for I have found Him to be what I truly need now, need forever. I have encountered in Him, the lover I have always wanted, craved. I have encountered in Him the stability I have always craved for. I have found in Him the encouragement I have always wanted, because only He is Living Hope, Boundless Hope. His Word alone is the only Word that can be absolute Truth, not mere philosophy but Words that are Spirit and Life, Words that are Eternal.
I have found in Him what life can never offer, what human beings can’t offer in full. I am haunted by the beauty I have beheld and I cannot keep it to myself! Just like the woman at the well, I have found, rather, I have been found by Him who is Living Waters and just like Paul, I would say that His love is what compels me, compels me to proclaim the message of reconciliation that the Father has bestowed on us who are in Him.
2nd Corinthians 5: 20-21 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
So, the question, that I will always pose to you, is, will you receive Him? Will you receive He who made the first move to you so He can be with you in a way others haven’t been able to experience Him? He longs for you so intensely, so madly in a way no one else can. Will you receive Him as the pure and Free Gift He is? All you have to do is come to Him as you are, acknowledging your need for Him, for His forgiveness and accept what He did for you on the Cross.
He is making His appeal to you from what you have just read, question is, will you accept this Free Gift to Humanity, to you personally? If you would like to see His Glory, His Goodness in the Face of Christ, let us know in the comment section below and we shall pray with you. Don’t harden your heart to the most beautiful of Kings to ever exist dear one
