5/16/16 Lovingly Involved
“It is right that you honor Jesus. His work is the most pivotal work in all of history. Because you have embraced Him and made Him the Lord of your life, I choose to embrace who you are and always direct you to who you can be in Him. I take great delight in you. I choose to hover over your life to make sure that you prosper. I choose to invest in your life to make sure that you become like Jesus. I choose to walk with you so that you can know Me, know My plans, and know My heart. I have promised to become involved in your life for all eternity. You are now Mine and I will never leave you.”
Hebrews 13:5b AMP …for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
1 Peter 2:9 NIV But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God…
God, our Father, is at all times showing us that intimate fellowship with Him is the position for which each of us has been created. We are made to function hand-in-hand with our Father in Heaven. The guidelines on how to function that way have been made available to us in His Word. His constant urgings to be like Christ, to lay our lives down, to deny ourselves, to take up our cross, and to make God first in our lives are love messages to the bridal heart of Jesus. He also promises to do everything to initiate and accomplish those changes.
True intimacy is our privilege. If we look to our own needs and place our Lord somewhere behind them, our precious, loving Father promises to bring His priorities back in order in our lives. He has committed to do so. We have committed to need Him to do it.
Thank You for all that You have done, Lord,
