I was back home last weekend and I managed to worship God in my home church. It was really refreshing. I attended the second service as my church has 2 services ... one at 800 am and the other one at 1030 am. Kok Hon led the worship and God was really moving in the midst of the church as we worshiped Him in unison. New songs broke forth. There were words of wisdom as people came forth to share what God had laid in their hearts. Loving Him for Who He is .... adoring Him because He alone is worthy.... not expecting anything in return but just to touch His heart... to love Him.
In the midst of it all as I knelt down before Him .... He spoke to my heart .... the still small voice in the midst of all the singing.... I am His and He is mine. I was captivated by God the One who had won my heart years ago and still continues to woo me with His tender unconditional love. The One Who sees me for who I really am .... the real "me".
"Come to Me and I will give you rest. Nothing else in this world can ever give you the rest you so desires. Everything is temporary but Me alone remain the same always. Things .... trips..... spas..... people..... money..... status.....will never satisfy you or give you the rest that I ALONE can provide. So come to Me ..... I will give you rest. Stop struggling. Stop fighting. Stop facing things in your own strength. Face them in My strength alone... My child ... oh how I love you and long to give you rest."
And that moment .... the tears will not stop flowing as His presence washed over and filled me to the overflowing. Chains were broken. Mental bondages were broken. Scales which blinded me fell off. Suddenly I realized again that I am His and He is mine. And I will rest in Him.
