Rouse yourself! Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for those who love Him! Spurgeon lists a few; you have peculiar power in prayer; the Spirit of God gives you joy and gladness; the Scripture is open to you; the promises are applied; you walk in the light of God’s countenance; you have peculiar freedom and liberty in devotion, and more closeness of communion with Christ than before. Such devotion, what a wonderful Savior. He delights in us. In fact the prophet Zephaniah, chapter 3, verse 17 says He will joy over you with singing. Awaken my soul and respond to Him!
Romans 8:39 tells us that nothing will separate us from the Love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord! This devotion brings to mind the lyrics of the song we often sing…Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe, sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow. He gave Himself for us, gave us all the rights and privileges that are His, and continually makes intercession for us. This in spite of the fact that we have no right to any of these blessings. What marvelous Grace! “Reach the bottom of Christ’s sea of joy, and then hope to understand the bliss that God has prepared for them that love Him. Overlap the boundaries of Christ’s possessions, and then dream of a limit to the fair inheritance of the elect. All are yours, and you are Christ’s and Christ is God’s” Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine, of what a foretaste of Glory Divine!
