Rain of Glory

Today I rain across a video on Youtube about being successful. It had a guy come up to a guru and ask him how to be succesful. The guru replied if you truly want to know the secret of how to be successful meet me at the beach tomorrow. So the guy meets him the next day. Guru says are you sure you want to know the secret of being successful? The man replies yes. So the guru goes out into the ocean about mid shin deep. Guru asks again you still want to be successful? Man says Yes. The guru goes further out into the water up to his mid thigh. Guru asks again, you are sure you want to know the secret to being successful. The man getting a little annoyed said of course. The guru moves out even deeper into the water waist deep. Guru asks again if he was absolutely sure he wanted to know the secret of being successful. The man getting really frustrated said Yes that’s why I am here. Suddenly the guru grabs the man by the head and dunks him under water and hods him there. The man begins to flail around and the guru continues to hold him. At the split second before drowning the guru pulls the man up and says. If you want to be truly successful you have to want it more than you want to breathe.

This hit me. Not in the same sense as the man who was almost drowned but in my relationship with my Father, my heavenly Father. Do I want my Father more than I want to breathe?

Suddenly a heaviness began to press down on me. It became heavier and heavier. So heavy I felt like was going to fall off the ball I sit at when I work on the computer. In this heaviness I began to realize this was my Father’s Glory falling on me. I song came into my head and I was able to get my guitar and sing a song. The words flowed so easily and the music made itself and suddenly a song was born.

Do I want you more than I want to breathe?

Do I want you more than anything?

Do I want you? Do I want you!

Do I want you more than I want to breathe?

Do I want you more inside of me?

Do I want you more than anything?

Do I want you?

Played that for a while and it was a deep moment with my Father.

The heaviness began to fade and it was back to work.

About an hour passed and I received a text from a good friend . . .

Hey Daniel. ..I just saw that very soon God is going to dump a huge rain of his presence all over you!

I thought that was pretty amazing and texted him back explain what just happened.

Another hour a so passed I thought I am not going to let this moment go by and I began to press in to God. Praying and worshiping again. Then the heaviness came back so thick and full that I had to lay on my back on the floor. As I was down on the floor theses waves of His presence just flooded me. Over and over and over. It so painful and yet not. I found my self yelling out and saying Jesus over and over and over. It was truly remarkable. I think I was on the floor for a few hours. It was so amazing!

His presence rained down something fierce. I have never experienced anything like that before.
