{ Day 186 }

Test me, O Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth. —Psalm 26:2-3

Imagine this great tragedy: A woman walks with God for forty years, fully saved, redeemed, and following Christ. She comes before the throne in the resurrection, and for the first time, she realizes what she's missed. She feels wave upon wave of pleasure flowing from the Son of God, and she says to herself, "I could have drunk from this well of spiritual delight every day on Earth. I just had to encounter Your heart and Your beauty. Life would have been so much better! Everything would have changed, and I would have accomplished so much more." Beloved, we don't have to wait to experience the deep pleasures! God has ordained for the human heart to experience them even in this life. It's not optional for us to go on as generations have, without a transforming revelation of God's heart. We desperately need hearts anchored and sustained by an outrageous love that comes from another world.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, I don't want to come to the end of my life with regrets for holding back on giving You all there is of me. Anchor my heart in You, and then pull out all the stops and let me soar with You.

Beloved, you and I cannot produce a good enough
argument to change God's emotions toward us.
