There’s a private place reserved for the lovers of God, where they sit near him and receive the revelation-secrets of his promises. Psalm 25:14
Have you ever been invited to a special event and when you arrived, you were asked to sit at the head table with the guest speaker? The first time it happened to me I thought I was back in school and was being placed in the front of the classroom so the teacher could keep an eye on me. You know, so you wouldn’t keep talking and disrupt the class? I’m sure some of you can relate!
The second time it happened, I became a little too comfortable in saying what was on my mind. Everyone was laughing, not sure if they were laughing at me or at what I said, but I loved the affect laughter had on them. Some people just thrive on attention. It’s part of their personality so don’t hate!
Several times in my life, I’ve heard the Father laugh and I’ve seen Him smile. You see, it’s our ‘thing’ we’ve got going on. He understands me because He created me. I try not to make Him angry (I don’t think I’ve crossed that line yet!), but I truly hate to disappoint Him.
My favorite times are together, where I snuggle up on His lap, feel His arms around me, His lips on my hair and His words of love in my ear. “Tell me a story, Daddy! I love the way you speak to me.”
As I settle in to His presence in that place where nothing can touch me, the ‘private place’ as David so aptly penned, He begins to speak and I ask questions. He loves it when I ask questions about what He’s telling me. It’s never an interruption. He knows my attention span is like a squirrel. He patiently explains, than peels back the layers as my understanding increases.
“Remember when you asked me how my Spirit works and I told you that? Well here’s another thing to add……” I usually respond with a gasp and an ‘ahhhh, that is SO COOL!’ To which I hear, “You think that’s cool, listen to this!”
Oh my friend, all the pleasures of this world cannot compare to the riches in His presence. When you begin to prioritize Him, He will share secrets with you as well. He’s no respecter of persons. He loves us all the same and invites us all to have intimate relationship with Him, but it’s always your choice.
Until Next Time,
