Have we lost "THAT LOVING FEELING"? Where is the childlike purity and trust that filled our hearts with JOY? What happened to the hearing and obeying GOD without question, because it brought great Pleasure? There was a time when we were Joyful and WILLING to go along with the LORD and do what HE desired. Is the "JOY OF SALVATION" an exuberant time in our life that cannot be sustained? When we lose GOD'S PRESENCE, we lose the JOY OF OUR SALVATION. Psalm 51:12, "Restore to me the JOY...And sustain me with a WILLING SPIRIT". A WILLING SPIRIT shines GOD'S light on our sins and inequities to give us the FRESHNESS of repenting and confessing. It is a humble, WILLING SPIRIT that does not want to be credited with the GLORY THAT BELONGS TO GOD. WE ARE SUSTAINED BY THE PRESENCE OF GOD; nothing can block HIS PRESENCE when we have a WILLING SPIRIT; THEN THE JOY OF OUR SALVATION IS RESTORED. And no one will ever say, "YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVING FEELING".
