This week I had to make a decision of trusting God that caused every fiber of my DNA to seek harmony with the presence of God. What makes this experience so primeval, is that it calls me back to the moments of my childhood when I first felt the presence of God and called it “cosmic”. I was just 11 years old and for the first time I wept and cried and gave my heart to Jesus. Suddenly I felt something come from outside of me into me that was so warm and comfortable that it made me feel completely safe.
Of course what I felt at that time I have now learned to call His glory and presence. At this present time I must admit I am still like that little 11-year-old boy hugging the most cuddly teddy bear and experiencing that safe feeling! As an adult I say, “Oh, the utter extravagance of His work in us who trust Him~endless energy, boundless strength!
“All this energy issues from Christ: God raised Him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule.”
This summer all of us are going on our dream vacations. Your vacation is God’s courtship with you, to introduce you, by divine courtship to your new life in Christ. This is the New Renaissance; a renewal of life, vigor, and interest. It’s also rebirth and revival: a moral renaissance. Oh how wonderful and splendid your new life will be in Christ! This is why I trust God so much. His goodness draws me to Him.
