“Wanna know something?” That’s how a text “conversation” began on May 16th, 5:43pm and ended at 6:20pm. I will only include my words only because I don’t know if my friend wants her words on here. However, here is what I typed:
“God is for us, and he is so very good. He wants an intimate relationship with us and wants us to have one with him. He has a plan for us that’s already working. He never leaves us. His love is unconditional. We killed Jesus Christ, and he prayed that we be forgiven. If we have to forgive someone who wounded us everyday, then we need to, so that we are forgiven accordingly. We have no right to ask for forgiveness if we hang on to “unforgiveness”. Seven times seventy he said. He loves you and me the exact same way he loves those who have damaged us. We are all his creation. Jesus had to die so that we could live. We have to go through him to get our inheritance. Our inheritance is eternal life with God almighty. If we want it.
There is no price of admission. That’s been taken care of on the cross. God had his only son pay our way with every drop of his holy blood. With his tears. His agony. His obedience. Our chains have been broken. We have done nothing to deserve that….we never can. It was just given. Just given because we are children of the one and only God. How do we have the right to ask anything from someone who has died for us? We do ask, though, don’t we? And he answers faithfully. All the time he is faithful! All the time he is loving! All the time he is gracious and forgiving!
Father, thank you for loving us sinners so much that you gave your son’s life so that we would know you. Thank you for giving us chance after chance to know and love you. You have a place for us with you. Thank you Father. In your son’s holy and precious name, Amen.”
I just felt like I should share this. I love God so very much. He so loves me. He so loves you, too. I don’t like going back to read what I’ve typed or texted or written. It makes me anxious and uncomfortable. I felt those things doing this post. I was told that I was hit with the Holy Spirit when I stated I didn’t know what had just happened in that text. Like I said, I felt like I was supposed to share this even though, right now, I’m so very anxious and uncomfortable about it. I feel quite vulnerable right now. Satan does not get to win this battle, though. I believe he did not want me speaking good of my Heavenly Father. Satan wants me to delete this right here and now. God is on my side, so I am not so completely worried about what Satan will hit me with next.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
I am not a complete fool about how Satan can come at me. Any crack in the armor, and he can sneak in. I have God, though. That’s all I need. I feel very teary right now about how much God is loving me and protecting me. I have a tendency to feel insecure about my words regarding God….my prayers……this has been mentioned in previous posts. As I was reading a Beth Moore book recently, she mentioned this verse:
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25
It hit me right in the core of my being. I want to be clothed in strength and dignity. I am tired of my insecurity where God and praising him is concerned. God, clothe me with strength and dignity….I beg this of you at this very moment! Thank you, Father. Thank you.
I would like to know what any of you honestly feel about this post. It is not a fishing expedition, however. It is my need to know where you are where any of this is concerned. It is my attempt to have you continue speaking of God, so that Satan does NOT get to win. I want you to be clothed with strength and dignity as well.
Thank you for taking the time to read. God bless you.
