The pastor's wife was concerned for their son who was 5 years old.
A storm had come, and she was worried he'd be afraid.
She climbed the stairs, and quietly opened the door to his room.
He was standing by the window, with his hands raised.
He was saying, "BANG it AGAIN, Lord! BANG it AGAIN!"
"I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places,
So that you may know that it is I,
The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Instead of being afraid of the storm, the little boy was having
an encounter with God!
The words in our Scripture (above), Is. 45:3 were spoken to
Cyrus, who was king of Persia.
Persia was known as a nation which did not believe in the
One and Only True God, Jehovah.
But Cyrus had an encounter with God!!
His pride was BROKEN as he met with God!
His heart was CHANGED as he met with God!
God told him, he would deliver the Jewish people from
the captivity under which they were suffering by the Babylonians.
Not only that, but Cyrus would send those Jews, who
desired to go, back to Judea - FREE.
And, he would provide them the things and money they
would need to rebuild the temple.
Many years ago, I asked the Lord to awaken me early so that
I might have time to pray and study His Word before I begin a day
of regular activity.
God has been FAITHFUL!
Though, I have been unfailthful countless times, God has
ALWAYS been faithful!
Have you ever had an encounter with God?
Do you seek to have such an encounter daily?
WHOEVER you are; believer or not, hear this!
God DESIRES that you have such an encounter with Him
that it CHANGES your life!!
His desire is to bring you into His presence, to humble your
heart and to reconstruct your life around HIM at the center!
Jesus is "the LORD, the God of Israel Who CALLS you
by your NAME!"
And He will give you "treasures of darkness" in the
storms of your life!
He will open "hidden wealth" of spirituality in
the "secret places" of your heart!
SEEK an encounter with Jesus!
SEEK it DAILY!
