Have you ever noticed when watching TV with no sound that the captions just don't do the trick? For example, is someone is singing; instead of hearing the power of the lyrics and song together our self, we see on the screen, [�� choir singing Swing Low Sweet Chariot]
It's just not the same is it?
In my walk with Christ it is the same way. I can listen to other people talk about it and even read about it in scriptures which will of course bring me hope, but until I surrender and seek Christ for myself, it might as well just be words on a caption. I won't fully understand His healing power, unconditional love, sweet serenity, and internal joy until I fully step out and taste it for myself.
To experience it myself is so much better.
“[God,] satisfy us with your love in the morning, so we can shout and be glad in each of our days - Psalm 90:14 MSG
Only God can satisfy that hunger and thirst we all have in life. If you haven't experienced it, I invite you to surrender to Him. If you have experienced it, shout it out and be glad in it.
Have a wonderful day!
