In rhythm with His heartbeat.
When you wake up in the morning, what is the first thought that crosses your minute? Yes, take a minute and think about it……
Is your first thought about your beautiful wife or loving husband, the problems you might be facing today, maybe what you will wear today, or maybe your kids and all their needs? Which of course are all valid thoughts, some positive some negative wouldn’t you say, depending on the situation. I do seriously believe though, that you should start your day with positive thoughts.
Now imagine this!!What if your first thoughts were “Good morning Holy Spirit” and you just smile, because you know that He has been waiting to hear those words coming out of YOUR mouth for the last few hours. I promise you He will be smiling, and if your heart is quiet you will hear him say “Good morning my son, Good morning my daughter”, now tell me that doesn’t make you smile….. Your first thought is a positive one. Now I can just imagine some saying, “not possible”. How about “Good morning Holy Spirit, I love You”? If you do this and your heart is really in to what you are saying, you almost get the sense that you are starting to build a relationship, ‘cause these are the type of thoughts and words you would use in a relationship. Still some of you say “nope, not possible, you are on the fringe of insanity”
Well I’m going to tell you a shocking thing; it is absolutely possible to have this type of relationship with God the Holy Spirit. The Amplified Bible says it best in John 13:23 “One of His disciples whom Jesus loved (whom He esteemed and delighted in), was reclining (next to Him) on Jesus ‘bosom”
Reclining or put his head on Jesus’ bosom? Does this mean…..?No…..!!!It does, you, me, anyone can have this same close relationship with the Holy Spirit, the same Spirit that was present in Jesus and who allowed John an ordinary man to put his head on the bosom of Jesus. In my book this sounds like a close relationship and again I say we can have it to.
Golly Gosh, exciting don’t you think?
Personally I feel this is the game changer. As soon as people realise they can have an active intimate and loving relationship with the Lord, who is Love, then the world will change. This love I’m talking about you’ll soon realise is not just about you, it is also for meant for others. When we realise and accepted this, we then have the responsibility to show people the God loves them and He wants to form the same relationship with them. We can all recline and put our heads so close to the Lord Jesus’ bosom, that we can hear His heartbeat for each and every one of us.
Let’s carry the flame and ignite other people’s hearts, so they may realise, God loves them and He wants an intimate and unique relationship with each and every one and then, just maybe we can all live in rhythm with His heartbeat, which is love.
