I am so thankful we do not have to talk God into being good to us. We don’t have to beg Him. For anything. He already knows what we have need of & He is well-acquainted with our deepest heart’s desires. He has bottled every tear & holds our every longing. We can trust He knows what is best & is working things out for our good. Even in this very moment, where we may feel He has forgotten us. Nothing could be further from the truth.
It is hard for us humans to grasp that when we don’t “see” anything happening. But I believe it is going on all around us constantly in the Heaven-lies. We should have a daily expectation of seeing His hand moving & shifting things in our life. We should practice waking up with hope & faith for what’s next & gratitude that we are alive. Another chance to get up & start over. Because some days really do need to end & be left in the past. Lord help us not to continue looking back.
For those of you who are barely hanging on, possibly even scoffing at the notions offered out this morning, please know that what God says about you is true ~
He knows the plans He has for you – He declares it, in fact. They are only to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
You ARE precious in His sight
You ARE God’s child.
You ARE His friend.
You ARE God’s Incredible work of art.
You ARE totally and completely forgiven.
1 John 1:9
You ARE spiritually alive.
You ARE the salt of the earth.
You ARE the light to this world.
You ARE greatly loved.
Hallelujah To The Lamb Of God.
He is worthy of all our praise. All of the time.
Much love y’all, & much more revelation of just how unique & important we really are,
