I am so blessed to be able to visit with one of my most precious friends one evening this week. And we’ve set up another day to have supper together. I even get to meet her daughters and her grandbabies! This is monumental to me. She’s one of my heroes of faith. And just this morning we visited and He reminded me how wonderful a woman of God she is and how much He loves her and is using her for His glory! She’s dying. She was dying the day I met her seven years ago. But now things have gotten so very serious – she’s in her last days/weeks here. Life is so fragile and I must pray.
Why wouldn’t I? After all God is my go to person for everything. I pray about everything. I’ve been praying to God – talking to Him about everything – since I was a little girl. I can barely comprehend the privilege of conversation with such royalty – The Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent God! He speaks with me and never do we have a conversation that He does not tell me I am loved, cared for, cared about and cherished!
Oh beloved, the way God feels about my friend and about me is the same way He feels about you! Truly! Deeply! Without reservation! Your present circumstances may make you feel abandoned, uncared for, left out or useless. But beloved, you are to live in the Spirit, according to God’s Word and His words over you are covered in Love! Every one of them! Satan may have done a number on you. He may recount your mistakes to make you feel lower than low. But God is your go to person for everything! You won’t hear condemnation, condescension or disdain in any conversation with Him! He knew you before you even took breath precious one! He knows you intimately now, more intimately than anyone on earth! And He is cheering you on even now. He is lifting you up into His arms right this minute. He is calling you out of the darkness of lies and into His light of TRUTH! You may see yourself as barely making it, but you are a royal diadem in His hands! You are clothed with STRENGTH and DIGNITY! You laugh without fear of the future! You are full of His joy – which heals the very marrow in your bones!
Because you have access to the One Who saved you – there is a privileged life for you! Privileged to be forgiven, chosen, adored, rested, blessed, called, anointed and appointed. No foe can defeat you, no human’s words can contain you, no animosity from any direction can put you down! Your life is secure and you will fulfill God’s plan for your life! You are learning to pray about everything and leave it all in His hands – including your own life and the lives of the ones you are praying so fervently for! Rise up and walk – into your day with confidence that God is with you right now!
God loves you and He’s for you! All the way He leads you. He has already prepared your next home and it is out of this world! He’s listening to your every word and He moves heaven and earth on your behalf daily. Run to Him this morning and thank Him for the privileged life you have! And live in the Light of His Truth about you – you are covered and cared for all the days of your life!
