Sometimes we sense the Holy Spirit calling us aside. The Spirit often directs us to a passage of scripture that encourages or gives us direction. Other times, it seems that God simply wraps us in love. It is, as if, we sit under a shade tree by the River of Life, embraced by God. In these rare moments, we speak no words. Nothing can be said. We are just quietly soaking in God’s love.
Satan, though, is usually close and whispering, “Yep, it’s coming. Something big and disastrous is coming to you and God is getting you ready for it. Ohhh it’s gonna be bad if God is this close to you!”
Perhaps God does occasionally prepare us in such a way, but often, God is simply saying, “I just came to say ‘I love you.'” How inexpressible the joy of resting in the arms of God and realizing the Spirit has just come to embrace us with never failing love.
They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Psalms 112:7
