The Deep Things of God
“But as it is written, eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9, 10)
Yesterday the Spirit of God revealed a few "deep things" to us through our celebrating the entering adulthood of two young women . It seemed to preview something our Father has waiting for all of us who love Him. The beloved people who live in one of the many places our Father’s feet has touched the ground, assembled to honor and witness two young maidens entering into womanhood. For the next twelve and a half hours our Master would shower His love and praises on these two beloved young women through His gathered people.
We have been asked many times by people on the outside if the love that drew us together is still alive. It is more than just alive. It reigns in our hearts. If they could have witnessed the twelve and a half hours happening yesterday, they would have understood. It is not only alive but has exponentially grown and matured.
It has been noted that each Village passage is for all of us and not just the people it focuses on. Perhaps it is through the giving and loving that all of us are called to do daily that causes us to grow. Perhaps it is because of the living Unity that we live in with our God and each other. Whatever the answer is; yesterday left everyone feeling humbled by His affection and dazzled by His Love.
