Well and Truly Loved!
Do you feel well and truly loved? Or; maybe you have days, or seasons, when you see, think and feel that everyone around you has it all together? They seem to have and get everything they need or want, and they are happy all the time? You could see how God loved them and their families.
I had a few days where a bunch of things seemed to be going wrong in my family, with my computer, and my attitude. Adding insult to injury, my hubby, totally happy and at peace, barely reacted to my frustrations! He has a very close walk with the Lord, and I do thank God daily for this trust, faith and sunny disposition despite his physical and health limitations. I still need to work on my frustrations from time to time when I don’t feel so very loved.
Well and Truly Loved!
Waking up this morning I ‘heard’ clearly in my spirit: “Ann, I love you,” with the emphasis on the ‘you.’ I smiled and instantly thanked Him! Yes, I knew that God loved me. But, do you know what? Just as in the natural world it’s important to hear a loved one tell you verbally again and again that you’re loved, so it is with God!
What I had this morning was a revelation; not knowledge! This was not just a verse that popped in my mind. No! This was a Rhema – a revealed Word of God – that went straight into the heart; not just the ears! I didn’t ask Him if He loved me. In fact, I did not consider myself unloved and He just showed up, and made my day!
That’s how my beloved Father works! When you’re quiet before Him, and acknowledge that He is God in your life, then He will reveal Himself and speak clearly to your heart.
Maybe you’ve been crying out to Him for something. Then suddenly, at a quiet moment when you’re not even thinking of anything, you know that the Promise has been deposited into your heart. From that moment on, maybe after months of speaking and expecting your miracle, you know that it has been accomplished. The situation may still be there, but you will know without a shadow of a doubt that it’s done! Now it’s no longer faith but it’s God revealing how much you are loved through Holy Spirit!
God does not make mistakes!
God does not make mistakes! We all make mistakes, and have to suffer the consequences. However, He is in the midst of it, and He wants you to praise Him in the midst of your turmoil and desperate circumstances. Why? Because you were fearfully and wonderfully made! He knew you and everything you’re about to become before you were even conceived. (Ps. 139: 14-17)
“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.” (Isa. 49: 15-16)
Do spend some quiet time with Him, and ask Holy Spirit to show you your Father’s Heart. Maybe you have been feeling totally unloved, unlovable, and feel that nobody in the whole world loved you. Ask Him to reveal to you just what it means when He tells you:
“I have loved thee with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” (Jer. 31:3)
