Intimacy with the Lord Jesus

by Apostle Tonya

This is the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face—even Jacob.  Psalm 24:6

Some time ago, I was watching a Christian television program.  During the program, a man of God who was interviewed began to share a beautiful testimony of intimacy with the Holy Spirit.  I was held by tears as he lovingly shared of his story:  sitting with the Holy Spirit and our Lord’s desire to spend time with us. 

Thereafter, I pondered in my heart the many times I was in thy Lord’s Presence and felt His desire for a deeper fellowship.  My heart began to ache while I reminisced on His pursuit of me. Ofttimes, I would be overwhelmed with the distractions of life and could not bask in His Presence as I should have done.  It was hearing the testimony of the man of God which provoked me to enter into His rest: pouring out my heart to Jesus.

As I remained in rest with thy Lord Jesus, I became enraptured in His Love. There became nothing in my heart I allowed to come near to our Blessed King.  Thy Lord continues to be ever-faithful to speak, sing and most beautifully cause an eruption of joy within me during our times of fellowship.  Acts 2:28

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.  Psalm 16:11

One of my most dearest chapters in the Holy Bible I often delighted in became John chapter 21.  This chapter of our Risen Lord appearing to His Friends and Disciples invokes a river of tears and our Blessed Lord Jesus revealing Himself to me. 

John chapter 21 verse 17: 
He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee…

During that time, the anointed soaking music of Alberto and Kimberly Rivera played continuously and forever changed my worship experience.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24

May our hearts continue to hunger for Him. Amen!
