My mother could turn a toe sack into a work of art. She was always making something out of nothing. She’d slice horse apples and put the slices in the oven to turn them into flowers for bouquets. She had a green thumb as well. Nothing ever dared die or fail to flower. She had a knack and I was always impressed with her abilities.
Oh beloved, God turns lives into a work of art. Yours is you know! An absolute Rembrandt of His blessing, provision and care. His promises are the paint brush of magnificence for your life. Just as the women at the tomb heard the words “He is not here, but is risen!” God promises to take your tragedies and turn them into triumphs – every single time. Like the disciples visiting with their risen Lord as He took the bread and blessed it. He promises to make the ordinary into the amazing. He turns out tedious times into tremendous outpouring of His Spirit. He takes the routine and gives us revelation. Most of all, He takes all our disheartened journeys and turns them into joy. He takes every weakness and covers you with His power. He takes all the darkness that threatens to overtake you and shines His light – THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD – on you. He takes the shadows that want to make you fearful and covers you with His shadow. Loneliness has to flee because you are never alone – God is always with you. Christ went to the cross to save you from the penalty of your sins but oh so much more! He granted you life – perfect living in perfect harmony with Him. And He made you righteous – in right standing with Him! He gave you all that you would need to live a godly life now. There’s more! He made a way for you to forgive the unforgiveable, overlook the pain, be relieved of sorrow and stand in the face of the enemy triumphant against all your foes!
God loves you and He’s for you. Rejoice in His abilities. Rest in His promises. Live in His provision. Shout to the world about His redemption. Give Him all the glory for His love which makes something out of nothing and gives new life where dead things were once present. Run to His Word and see- all His promises for your life are true for His Name is Faithful and True. Count on Him and watch your lack become abundant living as you live in the Light of His Glory and Grace.
