S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.
John the Beloved was beckoned by a voice that bid him enter through an open door to heaven. Immediately, he said he was “In The Spirit” and he saw someone sitting on a throne there.
When is the last time you were “In The Spirit?” In the first chapter of the book of Revelation, John said he was “In The Spirit” on the Lord’s day (v. 10). This is an amazing thing to experience. We’re not sure if John somehow came out of the Spirit somewhere between Revelation 1:10 and the beginning of chapter 4, or if this was an even deeper experience of being “In The Spirit.” Either way, there have only been maybe two times in my life where I know I was “In The Spirit.” I can tell you that it is a deeply emotional sense that I had each time. I felt as if I was here and not here at the same time. Each time I was both blessed and brought to the brink of thinking this is somewhat past the point of no return and that I have hesitated to fully trust the Lord that deeply again. That being said, I’m ready to go deeper “In The Spirit” with my Savior again.
This AM, I ask You to forgive me for wanting control. Control is something that some of my friends desire more than anything else. I have also battled the need for control, but today I’m asking You to take me “In The Spirit” wherever You want me to go. Amen
