Woke up very briefly during the night, had sweet thoughts about the day before, and then heard very clearly, “His pleasure”, and it stuck, cause I heard it in my first waking this morning. What a “pleasurable” thing … when I “please” Him. It is so deep and so satisfying. I was perceiving His pleasure about yesterday; that what I was having pleasure in … so was He.
Cruising into my morning reading … funny, how when I look back I’m not sure how the words I read led to the thoughts, but suddenly I saw how I had really missed it in something the day before. I’d never seen it in the Light that I saw it in this morning. I went immediately into correction and repentance mode, but even now it disturbs me that I didn’t see this before … so I’m keeping that Blood of Jesus before me and standing in the courts of heaven declaring “innocent” so that ever so nasty condemnation does not take a hold in my soul.
I’m also chuckling at how my Father God set me up … letting me know I’d brought Him pleasure the day before, then whammy … a Love stroke of correction. He is so GOOD! And so funny!
I’m saying, “‘Slap me, makes me happy!” Thank You my Father God for loving me so much. I was disappointed for a moment that I hadn’t seen before what You showed me this morning, but it’s under the Blood now, and I’ve come to the place of Your Mercy and Grace, and I know You’re giving me more Light on this so I won’t mess up in this area again. And if I do, for some reason, miss this again, I KNOW You love me, will correct me again, and work in me till I get it right. You’re so Faithful! ‘Have I told You lately that I love You? that there’s no one above You? You fill my heart with gladness; take away my sadness. Ease my troubles, that’s what You do …’ I take the Blood. I take Your Righteousness … that I’m right before You. Thank you, and I forgive as You’ve forgiven me. I do love You with all my being, and I will to love others as You love me … Mercifully! All in Jesus name.”
HEBREWS 12:5-6 My dear child, don’t shrug off God’s discipline, but don’t be crushed by it either. It’s the child he loves that he disciplines; the child he embraces, he also corrects. God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. MSG
