When was the last time you had a praise session? Just you and the Lord in your personal prayer room? Do you remember sitting alone, singing, waving your hands, giving thanks and glory to God? I just had one of those moments. It was so awesome as I experienced the sweet intimacy of the Spirit of God as he inhabited my praise and ushered in freedom and an intense sense of liberty. Just His presence, the awesome presence of a loving God embracing me as every concern I had been considering seemed to fade away. This was a very refreshing moment. I felt as if I were the only one in the whole world that God paid attention to. I felt the presence so thick, so profound it was amazing. Oh, I long to dwell in this place. Walking in it daily at all times. Not that my head will be in some blind cloud, but that I will be sensitive to His presence. Sensitive to the needs, pains and the frail broken hearts of those I come into contact with everyday. The smiles, laughter and talk of success and achievements will no longer mask their true pain. Being sensitive, in the Spirit I will be able to be a vessel for that living water to flow from. A river of life and healing that the nations desire to drink from, whether they no it or not. Thanks be to God who loves us and is merciful. Thanks, oh Lord for your presence.
