We will see Jesus with new eyes

Lately as I have been reading scriptures or listening to music there has been this heightened awareness at certain scriptures or songs. Any scripture or song that is about how Jesus has redeemed and restored us to the Father has deeply moved me.  They have touched my heart at this really deep intimate level.  Sometimes my response has been tears.  Other times I have had a response of worship and absolute awe of the cross.  Often there has been this literal bathing of God’s light upon me and a fresh awareness of the Holy God being in my very presence.  It has brought this excitement, a sense of wonder and a feeling of being alive, enabled and empowered.  I have also had this absolute assurance that I am able to overcome – I know I have victory and I feel deeply thankful.

This awareness has been so pronounced that I started to ask God, “What is going on? There is a reason I am feeling this”. I mean I know these scriptures really well. I know the story of the cross well.  I love the truth about our redemption passionately.  I love what it gives: access to the Father, authority, access to love… gosh I could just keep going?  Yet in these moments, it has felt like it is the first time I knew that Jesus died for me.

Today God showed me why I have had this overwhelmingly new wonder and revelation of His son Jesus:

I felt God reveal to me through this experience, that He will bring a fresh revelation of Jesus and His redemption. There will be a great sense of awe of God and a desire to worship Him restored to His church. That many will see the work that Jesus did on the cross and it will bring them to tears and melt their hearts. They will see Jesus and themselves in fresh light. They will see the power of the cross and be so thankful, like a child seeing something beautiful and amazing for the first time. This excitement will come back into the church at what Jesus has done for them and the world. They will become alive again and will just want to share God’s goodness and the wonder of the cross. As I write this, I see joy being restored, I see this wonder being restored, I see healing, I see freedom from addiction, I see restoration, I see happiness, I see life. I see the wonder of the cross and a deep desire to know Jesus. I see people conversing with the Father just like He is their best friend. It is like the restoration of the Garden of Eden, but with a greater understanding of the Father’s love, His restoration and the price that Jesus paid for them.

I am deeply touched by what I see and I am humbled. So often we try to do what only Jesus can do.

Blessings,

Cheryl

I am a wife, a mother, and a treasured child of God. My Christian faith is my source of strength. I’ve fallen into the depths of despair and been carried out of it in the loving arms of God.

    It’s amazing how these words – “My Christian faith is my source of strength. I’ve fallen into the depths of despair and been carried out of it in the loving arms of God. By His grace I have been healed. God has taken me on an incredible journey. I have experienced the painful things of this world and discovered in them God’s love and faithfulness. I believe in a merciful God who has never left me. He is forever faithful” – could have so easily been written by me.

    You’ve been gone quite some time, now, Cheryl. I pray you have been well. Nice to see you back. I like the way you write.

    • Yes I have been gone some time. It has been a bit of a difficult journey, but also revelatory. The other day I felt God say that He wanted me to return to writing. At the time I was filled with fear, I eventually worked through it to the point of forgetting about it. Then today I heard God say write this on your blog and share it. It was not planned. With no fear at all I wrote the post. It felt very natural. Praise God for His preparation and strength.

      Good to hear from you again. Thanks for your encouragement.
