Your robe is not only a key that gives access to the
Father; it is who you are. You are righteous through
Jesus who gave it to you.
Do not miss the goodness that is ripe around you. Squeeze out every drop of My love, revelation, and blessings that you can grab hold of today!
An attitude of joy is most important in the mundane and hidden.
I would tell people I am usually asleep before my flight even takes off. I must have shared that little factoid one too many times. We all know what the result of pride is; even when it seems subtle, the fall is coming.
Garbage is not kept inside our homes but is put outside and taken away. We are to do the same with our sour and putrid thoughts.
We cannot be perfect this side of Heaven. Our goal is only to settle into His perfection where we can find His perfect peace and His perfect joy.
He has called us to Himself, paid our ransom, and washed us completely clean. We now can stand firmly on the foundation of hope He has provided for us.
As a child of the most high God, you have been selected to shine forth for Him.
Freely you have been given; now you are called to freely give.
When we are fully trusting in God, we do not need to hit pause and wait for resolution or the answer to our prayers. Instead, we can confidently walk by faith and not by sight.
We are called to ride through life not holding on with white knuckles, eyes closed, and full of fear, but instead to ride with eyes wide open, legs swinging, and full of joy!
We need the transforming power of the Truth, Jesus, to shift our paradigm. Like Paul, we should be in a place where we count everything loss but knowing Him.
Proximity changes perspective! A lamb on the shepherd’s shoulders can hear his breathing and feel his heartbeat. It is a place of intimacy. Positioned on our Shepherd’s shoulders, we are able to see things from a higher perspective, His perspective.
The voice of our Shepherd calls us to walk in faith and not in fear.
When we start to feel worn out, discouraged, and hopeless, it may mean we have strayed off course. We need to remind ourselves who and whose we are. We are daughters and sons of the most high King. We should remind ourselves where we are seated. We are seated with Jesus at the right hand of the Father.
When we “mess up” or fall short of His standards, the only choice that stands true to our Christian faith is to fess up and then clean up. As we face the whole truth about a situation and bring it into the light, God will make it clear what the necessary steps are to set things right.
