When you have truly seen the love of God, you will cry, you will have danced like a child, and sung like never before, and breathe like never before. You will, not just feel, but be truly relieved. The Holy Spirit guarantees it. He did it to me once, and time after time. He will do it to you too.
“My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.” (Job 42:5)
“The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.” (1 King 19:11-13)
Jesus is our cloak. Dressed with Jesus, with unveiled faces, we can now boldly enter the presence of God.
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:19-25)
You will cry, overwhelmed with joy and relief. I did and continue to do so, every time I remember the first time I met my God, the first time I met Jesus.
