Please join with us in praying for the victims and their families in Boston!
As soon as I went into the Presence this morning, I knew that something seemed very different. I normally go through a time of prayer and praise for about 25-30 minutes before getting face down before the Lord. This morning I was down in a few minutes. I was caught up in the Spirit and lifted up to a place where I saw something which looked like one of the portals into Heaven. But it was different. As I got closer, I saw that it was a Shekinah Glory Cloud. The core of the cloud kept changing shapes as the power of God caused the cloud to constantly shift and tumble. The one shape which I saw most often was a heart. I continued to be lifted by the Spirit until I was drawn into the cloud. I started to ask for a thought or word for the day. Then it hit me. Why would I want some kind of head knowledge in the midst of just soaking in the Presence.
My mind went blank, and I began to feel like this awesome cloud was somehow flowing through me or releasing something through me. Then the Spirit assured my spirit that I was being immersed in the Love of the Father. I just relaxed and let it flow through me. It felt like a warm, cleansing, and healing flow moving from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. It was wonderful and it was awesome to be in His presence this way. This is available for you today. I pray that your spiritual eyes will be open to see it! I pray that the Holy Spirit will take you into the Cloud of His Presence today.
After soaking for a long time, I thought about how different this morning’s experience with the Lord was from other days. There is a mighty outpouring of the Father’s love today. Can we really receive it? I thought about how often I had participated with people as we asked for healings, miracles, signs, wonders, breakthroughs, financial miracles, and restored relationships. We have become accustomed to seeking God this way. It is a challenge to shift to seeking Him and Him alone. That was what it was like this morning. In His Presence, we don’t need to ask for things. Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. “ Today, I am highly motived to just seek Him. I want more of His Presence and more of His Love! How about you?
As this awesome experience drew to a close (although it did not end – it just shifted to a different manifestation), I remembered what Jesus said in John 14:23, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make our home with him.” Many people prefer messages about gifts, grace, power, and glory more than messages about obedience. But, this is the KINGDOM KEY the Lord gave to you and me. I began to desire in such a powerful way for everything in my life to be obedient to Him. I love Him with all my heart, and I want to be able to love Him more. I want to be able to demonstrate that love through an obedient lifestyle. I want the end result of the Father’s Love and His dwelling in me! How about you? 1 John 4:16, “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.”
I want to leave you with this one thought as I pray for you to be immersed in the Father’s love today and every day! John 15:12-14, “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”
May our love also motivate us to pray for all the victims, their families, friends, and the first responders in the aftermath of the savage attack in Boston . May the Lord immerse them in His love and let the healing flow of His Shekinah Glory flow over and through each one! Amen and Amen!
