I knelt down to pray..

"Dear Father in heaven..." and then I paused as I envisioned myself in the presence of God kneeling before His throne. Then as the realization struck me that hear I am, talking to God. One who has more power and more authority then the president or any earthy king. One who made the earth and One who holds the galaxy's. One who is all powerful and One who is so Holy. One who is so good and So true. I can't describe the sense of God's greatness and majesty that I felt right then. I was humbled, I was awed. A feeling of unworthiness and a sense of my smallness washed over me and then I thought "How can I pray?! How do I talk to God?" then I remembered God's love but it changed the way I thought to pray. It made me realize how reverent we must be when coming before the throne of God but it also made me realize how special we are. Maybe it would be special to you if you got to talk to a president or a mighty king but how special is it to be able to talk to God the sovereign of the universe! How special is it to know that He loves me and He loves you?

Oh! Your Majesty no words can describe
Your power, Your glory no man can know...

I am amazed. I am awed and I am thankful that God gave me a little sense of His greatness and Majesty last night.

“The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved. The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people. Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy... Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.” (Psalms 99:1-3, 5 KJV)

Quote for the Day

Something I read this morning that was a blessing to me.

Rest yourself wholly in the hands of Jesus. Contemplate His great love, and while you meditate upon His self-denial, His infinite sacrifice made in our behalf in order that we should believe in Him, your heart will be filled with holy joy, calm peace, and indescribable love. As we talk of Jesus, as we call upon Him in prayer, our confidence that He is our personal, loving Saviour will strengthen, and His character will appear more and more lovely. . . . We may enjoy rich feasts of love, and as we fully believe that we are His by adoption, we may have a foretaste of heaven. Wait upon the Lord in faith. The Lord draws out the soul in prayer, and gives us to feel His precious love. We have a nearness to Him, and can hold sweet communion with Him. We obtain distinct views of His tenderness and compassion, and our hearts are broken and melted with contemplation of the love that is given to us. We feel indeed an abiding Christ in the soul. . . . Our peace is like a river, wave after wave of glory rolls into the heart, and indeed we sup with Jesus and He with us. We have a realizing sense of the love of God, and we rest in His love. No language can describe it, it is beyond knowledge. We are one with Christ, our life is hid with Christ in God. We have the assurance that when He who is our life shall appear, then shall we also appear with Him in glory. With strong confidence, we can call God our Father. .
