The Sweetness of God
Have you ever experienced the sweetness of God? You know, that is the essence of God. We only get little glimpses of it at this side of eternity it’s real. It’s real, sweet, and wonderful. It’s God.
Knowing God is to know his sweetness.
Being loved by God means being enveloped in his sweetness.
Living in the Spirit is about enjoying the sweetness of God.
The sweetness of God is meant for all
It is readily available for all his children. However, it’s not magic. But way too often we get too busy to draw close enough to God to experience his sweetness.
This sweetness is the nectar that keeps us going when life crumbles around us. The sweetness of God is the energy that empowers us to endure hardships. This sweetness is the elixir that equips us for our journey to home.
How to experience the sweetness of God?
Somehow many of us have forgotten how to experience the sweetness of God. We can do that simply by reading his Word, by praying and praising him, by abiding in him, by living out the promises of God.
The Spirit of God whets our appetite by giving us a taste of what’s ahead. He puts a little of heaven in our hearts so that we’ll never settle for less. (2 Cor. 5:5, MSG)
The sweetness of God is indeed a little bit of heaven here on earth. This sweetness of God is what Christianity is all about: God loved us so much that sent his only son to die for us so we could be embraced by the Father.
It’s God’s gift to his children
God yearns to be intimate with his children.
He adores showing affection to his children.
God wants to show his sweetness to you.
How do you respond? Do you stay away or do you settle for less? Or do you run to God to experience his sweet presence? Nothing quite like it! Just do it!
We yearn to know you
and to experience your love
and to taste your sweetness.
Embrace us tenderly!
Fill us with your spirit!
Heal us with your grace!
In Jesus’ name,
