I was conditioned to believe that God was typically on the verge of doing something. There was always an about to/getting ready to or futuristic quality about God. I've been to so many worship services that encouraged me to pat my neighbor on the back and tell them what God was about to do. After many years of feeling like I was almost about to or maybe/possibly almost ready to get blessed I heard a message from a spiritual teacher and he stated"nothing is going to happen that has not already happened.

You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w
Thank YOU JESUS, it's so good to know that!!!ReplyDelete
