Once God touches your heart in a personal way, the event will become for eternity your “special moment.”
One Sunday , like many before it, I sat in the isle seat of our small church. Little did I know how different this morning would be. In the midst of a praise song, before the music could change from one chord to the next, my heart was changed.
While having my head bowed in reverence, I saw a pair of shoes walking down the isle past me on their way to the pulpit. That’s what I saw. “So?” You might ask. And if I were you I would ask the same! What we see with our natural eyes is never that important or exciting, but with God’s help…..Oh the beauty!!! As those feet walked past me, a most sweet revelation of love flooded my soul.
A verse in the Bible, of which up to that day I was just vaguely aware of, saturated my heart like gentle rain on thirsty soil. The words to fully explain this “God event” escape me. Truly a most intimate experience of this sort is held close to the heart and reluctantly shared, though I feel that I must try.
With my natural eyes, I saw the shoes of my pastor heading to the pulpit to preach as he does each Sunday. But then God allowed me to see through His eyes, and that morning became wonderfully unforgettable. He showed me the precious feet of God’s beloved servant faithfully carrying the Gospel through a dry and weary land. I felt God’s love for all the pastors across the world who are planting, watering and harvesting for Him. What beautiful feet they are.
Isaiah 52:7, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
I don’t just know this verse now, I understand it. It’s now a part of me. Every time my pastor walks up to the pulpit I am reminded of how much God loves him, and us to whom he will be bringing the “Good News.”
