The Gentle Breeze of Jesus
Last night, we had a good time in our Dreams and Visions class worshipping the Lord and lifting up various needs. As the Lord moved upon the class, I was reminded how truly gentle He is.
I realized how we believers tend to experience one member of the trinity more than others. As we've been here in South Africa for over a year now, we've seen that the believers in this country have a great understanding of the Holy Spirit and know how to enter into a relationship with Him.
But not so much with the Lord Jesus Christ. What is the difference you say? I love what Revelation 3:20 says
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will fellowship with him, and he with me.
It doesn't say, "Behold I will come bash your door down and make you fall under the power", nor does it say, "You must come up to my mountain in fear in trembling."
This picture of the Lord Jesus is that of someone who wants to spend time with you. And not just any time but an intimate time. He wants to come and have dinner with you and talk about the things that are weighing you down. He wants to have a relationship with you!
Maybe you have been seeking hard after God. Perhaps you have been to conference after conference, to ministry after ministry, seeking a touch from God. But which member of the trinity are you seeking?
Because the Lord Jesus is right where you are. He is knocking on the door of your heart. If you are looking for "an experience", you might just miss the fact that you've been hearing His voice all along.
I encourage you to just take some time out to share your heart with Him. To have a conversation. To allow Him to speak back. And when He does, it won’t be in the fire or in the earthquake but like Elijah discovered, in a still small voice.
Holding the Dreams and Visions class has reminded me of how close the Lord Jesus is. If you open up the door of your heart, He will be there. You will experience His love for you!
In His Love,
