I was sitting at my meditation spot, in front of a large window that overlooks trees, when the Lord gave me a simple, yet powerful perspective about feelings that would prove to be very helpful in the future.
I watched the gray-touched clouds move quickly and consistently in front of the sun, so that it stayed rather uninviting for outdoor enjoyment, not giving the sun a chance to reach me through the window or shine rays on the lawn. A realization then came to me; no matter what kind of day, with the various types of weather we have, the sun is actually always there in the daytime.
Normally, people tend to say “it is a sunny day” or “the sun is out”, but in reality the sun is always ‘out’ in our day hours ( on a larger scale, the planets revolve around the constantly-present sun). The only reason every day doesn’t appear to be sunny is because of the cloud coverage and/or man-made interferences.
In spiritual terms, the cloud cover is like feelings of doubt and fear that can create the appearance that we’ve lost access to the gifts, blessings, power, communication, reliability/surety of the spiritual realm and the Lord.
Victory, freedom, authority, joy, blessing, progress, trustworthiness of the Lord and everything that the constantly-present Lord has made accessible to us is always present. These treasures, like the sun, are ALWAYS present despite the feelings that are caused by thoughts and by whatever battle may occur in our mind.
