”…stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness…of the things you have seen” [Acts 26:16]
Since childhood I have been aware of the ‘other world’—one of peace and joy—ordinary men and women of God shared with me that it was God’s Kingdom and Christ was the King. To a child it was fairyland; yet growing up in the midst of a war torn land it was more real than the horror of bombs and blackouts. To enter was to simply hold His Hand—the hand of Jesus, the one they said was King. I have long since put away many other childish things but not this—”In Him we live and move and have our being” [Acts 17:28]
God makes Himself known in the midst of warfare and teaches us we are not visitors but those that live, dwell, abide, and reside continually with Him— His heart is our home!
Our footprints and direction come straight from His heart to ours—we make no move without Him. It proves itself when we do as He did, the slightest detour brings a ‘check’ in the spirit and there is a Holy hush while He speaks and redirects.
Who we are is securely documented, unchanging, and eternal. The ground of our ‘being’ is rooted in who He is. This is the answer to Paul’s prayer, ” that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love…may be filled with the fullness of God” [Ephesians 3:17-19]
If this is fairyland—leave me alone, it’s where I belong, it’s where I was born again and the air I breathe is sweet and fragrant.
