“And I trust in you.” Psalm 55.23
Every once in awhile a moment catches you and you know a fact with absolute certainty. The realization usually occurs in a single moment, unexpected, unplanned, and unannounced. The emotional knowledge touches one’s core because of it’s truthfulness and honesty.
“How was your week? Are the new plans working out?”
The banter could be between anybody, anywhere. For me, in that moment, I realized how I feel about God in my heart. I trust him.
With everything that I am, with all that I posses and in every secret place I trust God. I wish I knew the event or experience that brought this on. The value of this knowledge is worth everything and I know it could be useful, helpful, and life changing. At this point, I do not understand what, how, or when there was a triggering event.
The Sunday morning conversations between friends took on the normal details of the week. We shared our experiences, lessons, and turning points with ease. As our conversations moved, I found myself reveling in my new found knowledge. The certainty and clarity of the moment reflected the unusual sunshine bouncing through the room. Bright, crisp, and revealing shafts of light and knowledge ran through the room as tight as new ponytails.
David’s experience provides clues if you want to have this same knowledge.
Always be honest and open with God. If you are angry, depressed, excited, fearful, or willing to risk all, let him know.
Be as willing to listen as you are to talk. In general, we are very good at developing wish and “to do” lists for God. It is ok to start there but listen for God’s side of the conversation.
Look for God to act in day to day experiences. After one talks with God, make sure you check out his actions. He is working all the time if one pays attention!
If God makes a suggestion take a chance and leap! The experience of jumping off a cliff for God is amazing.
Enjoy the ride.
