#8 - KISSED BY THE KING

According to rabbinical tradition a kiss from the King is when a passage of scripture jumps out at you and you sense God speaking directly to you. (adapted from Falling in Love with Jesus, by Dee Brestin and Kathy Triccoli)

Last year, the Saturday before Mother’s day, I was getting something out of the fridge in the garage and I heard the Lord say, “You are more precious than rubies.” A little while later I read the verse and the next day Todd gave me my Mother’s day card and before I opened it I began to cry because I knew what it said, yeah, you guessed it…”You are more precious than rubies.” It was one of those moments that take your breath away. I was kissed by the King.

This morning as I got ready, a wall hanging Todd gave me for Valentine’s Day caught my eye and the verse my eyes were drawn to was “You are more precious than rubies.” It was as if He leaned over, held my face in His hands and planted a kiss right on my forehead. His goodness and gentleness overwhelm me. He gave me a loving reminder of His heart for me after a pounding by the enemy. It does not matter what the enemy says, all that matters is I’m still Daddy’s little girl.

May you kissed by the King!

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.
Proverbs 31:10
