MEDITATION WITH JESUS... My Child, you are forgiven
April 3rd, 2015
Tonight I wanted to do something a little bit different. I wanted to share with you a very beautiful blessing the Lord gave me in prayer. And He told me that He wanted me to do this with you. So, I’m going to share with you what He did.
As usual, I came into worship and I was worshipping Him in the song, Praise Him, beautiful song by Terry MacAlmon. As I was worshipping Him I saw Him standing on a bridge over a crystal clear stream – beautiful crystal clear stream.
And it was a narrow stream, perhaps about 8 feet wide, arched-shaped bridge with a railing. And the Lord was standing on the bridge with me, and He was holding me. We were listening to the music. I was so aware of my shortcomings and my sins and my failings…As we were worshipping, my mind would kinda drift off into another place, and I’ve really been concentrating lately on forgiveness. Very painful memories would come up. Even though the Lord was holding me and I was just resting with my head on His chest, I would have these memories of things that were very painful that were done to me. And I would make an act of the will to forgive, “Lord, I make an act of the will to forgive them.”
These memories kept coming up. And then things that I had done, especially things like wasting time, lavishing time on foolish things for myself rather than lavishing that time on souls. And just this really, really deep sense of remorse came over me and I just started crying and crying. Different things would come to mind that I had done, and how I had failed Him. And each time something would come to mind, I would see a shadow. Something would come floating down the river and pass right under the bridge, and there would be blood on top of it.
What it was, it was that package of sin that I’d been holding onto, and the Blood of Jesus was like a covering over it. Or a red shadow that would float down this crystal clear water. The water was just so pristine and beautiful most of the time, but every time I thought of something that I had done, and how I had failed Him, I’d see this red shadow floating down the river and really flowing all the way down the river and into the sea of Mercy. The Sea of God’s Mercy. The Lord let me understand that I was forgiven, that’s GONE! It’s under the Blood. That’s done with!
So, this continued on for probably a good 20 minutes and I just continued to come up with things that I was holding, that I felt really bad about, that I had failed Him. And He just kept holding me and the sweet praise music was playing in the background, sweet “Praise Him” music. These packages would just keep coming until I finally got the idea.
