    For you don't delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it. You have no pleasure in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. O God, you will not despise a broken and contrite heart. Psalms 51:16 WEBWhen I first came to the Lord, I was so zealous that I wanted to make up for everyt...

    The Wonder of You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the wonder of the Lord. I believe that wonder is a great definition of what it feels like to have the Holy Spirit moving in your life. It can feel almost magical, surreal, at times you may ask yourself “I...

Ecstasy

  • You shall seek me, and find me, when you search for me with all your heart. I will be found by you Jeremiah 29:13 WEB

    It was a very busy morning and I had so much to do. I was under a lot pressure to fulfill the many commitments that I had made, and I was anxious to get the day underway. I had also told the Lord that I would start the morning with prayer time, but when under pressure, I wrestled with it. Did I really have time? Maybe tomorrow'

    Finally I just went into my prayer room, sat on the floor, reclined against my bean bag, pulled a blanket over me, and began to pray. I said about one sentence before the presence of the Lord descended on me so strong that I began to weep. He spoke to me very clearly that morning. I came completely undone and just sit there weeping, overwhelmed with His presence for the next twenty minutes. Every fiber of my being felt loved. The enemy had to tried to rob me of that.

    When faced with the hectic day ahead, I chose to put Him first. He touched me and when I came out of my prayer room, the huge problems that I faced, now looked insignificant. I no longer even cared! Choose Him! Those that miss out on knowing the Lord Jesus miss the greatest ecstasy on this earth. True ecstasy does not come in a pill. It comes from an intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I choose You today. Lead me into all that You have in store for I am Yours. Speak to me in a way that I understand and let me experience Your presence here on the earth, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen, there is nothing so precious to me then time spent with my Abba Father and Jesus. In their presence I can feel truly loved, empowered and blessed. It is with them that I always long to be, for then I am who is truly me.

Amen! That is the most important thing that God wants and that we need, is a personal relationship with my heavenly Father.

Pastor,

Thank you for this. I was just trying to figure out how to get closer to God, how to pray more and how to open myself up more to Him. This was wonderful. Thank you and God bless you man of God.

Amen, Thank you Pastor for your words that brought me back to reality. I always put God first but sometimes tend to get overwhelmed by other things. Thank you God for your love and patience with me.

HOLY: "High On Loving You". wish I could say I thought of that, but I didn't. Otherwise I would be rolling in money right now.  It actually is the title of a song which some of you may know from Florida Georgia Line. I really wish it was a worship song. I have mixed opinions about the song and the group. But that's not the point here. It's the lyrics here. Some of which I will leave out because they don't apply. :

Florida Georgia Line, “H.O.L.Y.” Lyrics:

“When the sun had left / And the winter came / And the sky thought to only bring the rain / I sat in darkness / All broken hearted.”

“I couldn’t find a day / I didn’t feel alone / I never meant to cry / Started losing hope / But somehow.... / You broke through and saved me.”

“You’re an angel / Tell me you’re never leaving / Cause you’re the first thing I know I can believe in.”

Chorus:
“You’re holy, holy, holy, holy / I’m high on loving you, high on loving you / You’re holy, holy, holy, holy / I’m high on loving you, high on loving you.”

“You made the brightest days / From the darkest nights / You’re the riverbank where I was baptized / Cleansed from the demons that were killing my freedom / ... .. ... ... ..../ .... .. .. .. / Get you singing ...., Hallelujah / We’ll be touching, we’ll be touching heaven.”

“I don’t need these stars because you shine for me / Like fire in my veins you’re my ecstasy / You’re my ecstasy.”

“You’re the healing hands / Where it used to hurt / You’re my saving grace / You’re my kind of church / You’re holy

 

Whenever I hear it I turn it into a worship song. My prayer is that He will become my "ecstasy". Thank you for the message Pastor Dion.

From my own personal experience, I agree that satan will always attempt to rob us of knowing God's love.
