The last couple of years, especially this year, I’ve experienced something wonderful. It happens most often when I’m having my quiet time. The best way to describe it, thrill chills. The Holy Spirit inspired kind; those rushes of pure joy when God speaks to my heart.
Every time I have these experiences a smile spreads across my face. I can’t help it. Sometimes I laugh. My shoulders rise and shrug back as the thrill rushes through me. The dearest part is the nearness I feel to my Beloved Savior.
Isaiah said us He holds us by our right hand. The love I have for Jesus and the closeness of our relationship compels me to cling to Him. I draw my hand under my chin, imagining I’m clasping His hand, as He clasps mine, my head on His shoulder.
My favorite devotional of late is JESUS CALLING by Sarah Young. It’s like the words are coming directly out of Jesus mouth to my heart. No matter the devotional you use or scripture you read, do so and then meditate as you draw close to our Savior. I pray you, too, will experience those wonderful thrill chills as you draw close to Him. To have a nearness and dearness with Jesus you’ve never experienced before, and that you grow more and more in love with Him each day, as I am.
“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
Lord, hold tightly to those who need a special touch today. Let them feel your presence in a new and exciting way that helps them know you are with them; that they are never alone and that you love them unconditionally. Fill them with joy from your wellspring of life. Renew their love for you that they may love others. In Jesus Name, Amen
