My husband and I believe that we were meant to be together. The circumstances are just too amazing not to believe that. He was born in West Texas. I was born in South Texas. Because of the size of that state we were born worlds apart. Yet at just the right time both of our parents retired to Arkansas – my dad and his step dad. This doesn’t seem so amazing to you maybe. But there’s more. He became best friends with my cousin who introduced us. One more fact we found out later in life: my ancestor Daniel Boone had a traveling partner. You guessed it. That traveling partner was a Beene who was my husband’s ancestor. Even our great greats were friends. It was destiny.
Oh beloved, you were meant to be with Jesus. He is your destiny. The circumstances are just too amazing! You were born in earth. Jesus came to earth in the form of a man for you. He went to the cross for you. He covered all your sins just for you. He introduced Himself to you. All your ancestors needed to know Jesus too. And at least some of them did meet and travel with Jesus all of their lives. What’s more amazing is this – that He would have come to earth just for you. That He loves you with an everlasting love. That He is sent here not just to save you for someday or relieve you of your guilt and shame, but He’s come to change your world! He came to remove the penalty of sin for your entire life! No more trying to be good enough or wishing you could be stronger. For He is your goodness and He is your strength! Because ALL your sins are covered you can live freely loved and perfectly redeemed. No more living in the depths of despair. Your destiny is now to live without the chains of hell, without the shame of past mistakes and without the fear of future retribution! You are IN CHRIST – so you don’t have to live in sin, condemnation, fear or worry! You aren’t just made for God’s purpose you are fashioned to reign with Him in His Love!
God loves you and He’s for you! So much that you don’t have to live for self anymore. A new name He has given you! What power for living! What strength for today! What hope for tomorrow! No excuses for living the low life because Christ has given you the high life – godliness and contentment, goodness and mercy, peace, love and joy are yours! Rejoice that you can live a life pleasing to God because you now live in the Light of His Wonder Working Power!
