“I sing to God, the Praise-Lofty, and find myself saved.” Psalm 18.3
There a magical moments, you and I both have them, where someone touches us and we feel the touch with every part of our soul. These moments are not everyday happenings and are usually associated with people we know and trust.
Sunday night God touched my heart. I knew when I walked away from the worship recording that something was different, I just didn’t know what. As I reflect on the evening now I cannot identify anything that unusual or personally extraordinary.
Sunday evening was a special event, historical in many respects. The second live recording for SW London Vineyard. Over 1,000 people packed into a room all sharing a united purpose. A unique gathering of worship leaders and musicians, playing and leading worship together for this one evening. The participants knew they could never replay the events as they unfolded that evening.
Personally, the evening contained great worship, interesting conversations, and fun people watching. Yet, as I left, the evening was far greater than that. My heart was different.
The best I can describe the difference is that something in my heart changed and I feel wrapped into God's grace. Peace, assurance, calmness, and focus are all descriptive words but somehow incomplete. The change brought a confidence in God that is greater than anything I have ever known. I sense a purpose in the here and now beyond anything I known someone to describe. A lot of temptation noise is gone – at least for now.
I am riding the curve – letting my life prayer become a more complete part of my living life than ever before. I am walking with a God song in my heart more fulfilling than life itself.
Everything is different and yet the same.
My heart is resting not racing. My desires fall into the firm and resolute category. Passions are there, but in a different way from anything I knew or experienced.
God is real. God’s touch changes.
Your quest to know God will be amazing!
