I love foggy mornings. The world is enveloped in such softness, like a gentle presence has descended and embraced her. The fog reminds me of my life, of the reality that the Glory of God in Jesus Christ, in the person of the Holy Spirit, has come to me – that He is in me and I am in Him. I live wrapped up in His Love, the way the morning fog hugs the earth.
One of the many blessings of this intimate relationship is our tender, confidential conversation. When difficulties come, He gives me visions and words that are tailor made for me and my circumstances – personal messages just for me from Him.
Recently I had some symptoms that were highly suspicious for cancer. I went to see my doctor and had several diagnostic tests. In the midst of that stress, my Lord whispered and revealed truth. I leaned in to listen and be comforted, and I responded.
He breathed, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price…” (Romans 6:19-20)
I sighed, “That is true. My body is yours. Whatever the outcome, Lord, I trust you.”
He opened up Revelation Chapter One, and I saw Him – the One with a face as brilliant as the sun and hair as white as snow – the One with a sharp double edged sword coming out of His mouth and feet like bronze glowing in a furnace – the One whose voice is like the sound of rushing waters – the One whose eyes are like blazing fire.
I said, “Even though you are beautiful to me, Jesus, you are fierce and frightening. I am grateful that I am hidden behind you and that my enemies have to deal with you!”
My enemy symptoms disappeared and all my tests came back normal. I said thank you to the Lover of my soul, and I praised His Holy Name.
The One, who shed His blood for me, shed it for you as well. He wants to share an intimate relationship with you. You are One of A Kind, and no one knows that better than your Creator and Redeemer. No one loves you like He does. No one will ever have the conversation with Him that He wants to have with you alone. Come. He calls you.
