Theos ... a serenade

Peaceful Serenade

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name (Psalm 100:4 HCSB). There is nothing as sweet and endearing as spending time in God's presence. The majesty of this experience is enhanced upon a person's soul as a beautiful painting. This is the quiet space, a peaceful serenade of God's "still small voice." There is no need to announce this wonderful place with a musical celebration of sorts. This is a solemn occasion of everlasting intent and accompanied by Goodness and Mercy. An endowment that enriches the soul as we sojourn each and every day.

The importance of this prayer time is special and unique to every person. Therefore, as the wind of the Holy Spirit comes to us from any direction and passes by, the vision is given to a person or community of faith through the freedom of the Spirit. The enlightenment of heavenly colour and joyous expression is especially given and does not fit the form of a paint-by-number theology. There is no need for external control since this is the presence of God unlimited. It would be impossible for me to describe the vast expanse of God's majesty except to animate the "song of songs" most wonderful. The beauty of this experience is easily seen within the prayers and meditations of the psalmist and not to be associated with the hurried agenda of instant prayer. Surely the tender heart of Jesus would offer some help to the incomplete requests of people today.

The Bible tells us that we would know God's voice and surely this comes from an "in sync" fellowship as given through the Holy Spirit. As mentioned earlier, the "still small voice" is unique to our spirit and may only be a sweet assurance of glad tidings. Thus, the volume level of this message requires a quiet place and may seem like "no reply" when mixed with the hustle and bustle of modern society. A person should be aware of the paint-by-number theology that would limit or diminish the entirety of God's message. The inundation of too many out of context or spiritually discerned teachers shouldn't replace the real message of God's heart. The invitation is to join together at the banqueting table of God's delight.


"Ye rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory."

A dream is heavenly based when God is the author, executor and the finisher. It is one thing to have a goal but another for God to put one in you and give you the grace to execute it.

Earthly dreams are the ones engineered by you, orchestrated by circumstances or initiated through your desires and ambitions. With our ability, we may achieve success in earthly dreams, but the heavenly dreams take God alone to accomplish, as He endows you with gifts and empowers you for success.

Oh, for a heavenly dream that no attack can destroy and with God's grace coming to pass regardless of opposition.
