I was on itunes buying some songs and remembered a song from the 90’s by Susan Ashton called Grand Canyon. Its a great song and really ministers to the soul. But I couldn’t help but think how our feelings are sometimes just that and don’t reflect reality.

Though we sometimes “feel” far away from Jesus, its not at all true, ever, if our name is in the Lamb’s Book Of Life. Once we have accepted His sacrifice on the cross for our sins and waywardness, that canyon gap is closed. When that earthquake hit and the veil to the Holy Of Holies was ripped apart allowing our immediate access anytime, it also closed the gap between The Father and us, permamently.

A great song that reflects this gap closure, is a recent song by Mercy Me – Flawless. Do we really understand the full meaning of Jesus’ words on the cross when He said, ” It Is Finished.” ? ( check out Petra’s song – It Is Finished or White Heart’s song – Once And For All)  ~~~ scripture refs – Hebrews 10:10, John 19:30, Romans 5 (whole chapter).

I can’t help but think that our enemy wants us to think that we are far from Jesus sometimes, when we really are not ,ever, once our name is in Jesus’ book. Its just a facade that he wants us to think reflects reality, when it doesn’t. That’s why Psalm 23:4 says “shadow” of death, because we are just in its shadow and not actually touching it or in it. So don’t fall for his lies, we are always in the shadow of Jesus’ wings though (close enough to touch Him/for Him to touch us anytime). ~~~ Psalm 57:1;61:4;63:7;91:4. Don’t touch death, but do touch Jesus. It works the other way too – death doesn’t touch us but Jesus does. (Though our souls leave these earthly bodies, its not really death for those under His grace.) ~~~ Hosea 13:14;I Corinthians 15:55&56

(scripture refs for Book Of Life – Philippians4:3, Revelation 3:5;13:8;17:8;20:12;

  1. Every believer will reach a point of decision whether to believe his/her emotions or believe God. While it’s wonderful when emotions confirm the Truth, God’s Truth stands on its own and does not need confirmation from any of us.
