S. O. A. P
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
In my thirtieth year, in the fourth month on the fifth day, while I was among the exiles by the Keybar River, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God.
Before the Prophet Ezekiel tells us who he is, he first gives us his testimony. His testimony consists of the “Five Essentials” of a great investigative newspaper report. Ezekiel tells us “WHEN” this happened to the day. He tells us “WHO” he was with when it happened (The Exiles). He tells us “WHERE” he was when it happened (The Keybar River). He tells us “HOW” it happened (The heavens opened). And finally he tells us “WHAT” happened (He had visions of God).
I believe every person who has ever lived has had some kind of definite “God Encounter” in his or her life. Of course if I’m right, that statement raises the question as it relates to you … “Do YOU Remember WHEN?” I can tell you the Day and the Time when I had a spiritual encounter with the Lord that I couldn’t THEN and cannot NOW deny. I responded to that Encounter by saying “YES” to God and “NO” to all the other voices in my life. I’m not saying that everyone has responded like I did, but I’ll bet they still remember a time they said “NO.” If you can honestly say that never in your life have you ever experienced a God encounter, all I can say is … “You’re Still Breathing!”
Thank you for that April Monday in 1971 when You visited me. I was never the same after that and, “YES … I Do Remember When!” Amen
