    Yahweh's word came to Jonah the second time, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach to it the message that I give you." So Jonah arose, and went to Nineveh, according to Yahweh's word. Jonah 3:1'3 WEB.When God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, he immediately went down to Joppa and to...

Ecstasy

  • For I know the thoughts that I think toward you," says Yahweh, "thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future. You shall call on me, and you shall go and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You shall seek me and find me, when you search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11'13 WEB.

    It was another busy morning, and I had so much to do. I was under pressure to keep up with all the service calls I had scheduled, anxious to get the day underway. I had also told the Lord that I would start the morning with prayer time. Yet, when under pressure, I wrestled with it. Did I really have time? Maybe I could do it tomorrow'

    Finally, I just went into the room where I usually prayed, sat on the floor, and reclined against a bean bag. Then I pulled a blanket over me and started to pray. I said about one sentence before the presence of the Lord descended on me so strong that I began to weep.

    He spoke to me very clearly that morning. I came completely undone and just sat there weeping, overwhelmed with His presence for the next twenty minutes. Every fiber of my being felt encouraged and loved. The enemy had tried to rob me of that experience.

    That time, when I faced the hectic day ahead, I chose to put Him first. He touched me, and when I came out of my prayer room, the huge problems I faced now seemed insignificant. I no longer even cared! The rest of my day was filled with His grace and peace.

    Put the Lord first. Choose Him! True joy doesn't come in a pill. It comes from an intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Those that miss out on knowing the Lord Jesus and the presence of the Holy Spirit miss the greatest ecstasy to be found on Earth.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I choose You today! Please lead me into all that You have in store for me. I am Yours. Speak to me in a way I understand. Let me experience Your presence here on Earth. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: Happy New Year, and welcome to 2022 :)! We are honored to have each of you as part of our RHM family, and cherish the friendships we have made over the years.

I totally agree with this. Some days I get too busy, and I am tempted to not do my quiet time, and sometimes I just totally forget out of busyness. I know that meeting with the Lord is the best thing that I can do. He gives me such peace, and He tells me he loves me more than I can ever imagine. Doing a daily devotion and a quiet time with God is the best thing I have ever experienced. Some of my friends and family ask, "why would we want to worship God every day when we get to heaven?" I know that worshiping God is the best feeling I have ever had, such a peace, and feeling of elation, nothing on earth can give you these feelings. I think that if people say why would you want to worship God every day here on earth or in heaven, that they do not truly know the Lord and the elation that He gives us when we are truly praising Him. There is nothing like it!!
