We are all a puddle of mess! He said, "And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, and I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live."
"Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I swore unto thee, and entered into a COVENANT with thee, saith the Lord God and thou becamest MINE. Then washed I thee with water; yeah I THOROUGHLY washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil. (...nough said!!!)
I realize we all need healed from this disease called SELF! We need to be healed of all of our "baggage". In our pasts we have been (or know someone who has been) hurt in one way or another. We fear that we'll get hurt again so we lock up and fall short of the work God so desires to do in us. ..to learn the secret of love! We are living in such a fallen world yet we have a Physician who knows we are but dust, a passing vapor that comes then is gone in a moment and He has formed us all in our mothers womb where in Psalms it says, "We were fearfully and wonderfully made!" He knew us before he formed us and knows how many hairs are on all our heads! These things are too unfathomable for me to wrap my tiny brain around. But as I have personally witnessed healing of the past in my own heart, I am now convinced He has power to heal anything! With Him all things are possible! ..and I will never settle for less! When I get sips of water, I will be thankful yes! but I will never settle for just sips because I know he desires to give me so much more (His ocean!!!) I remember one night after I was faced with an impossible situation, I was facing a mountain that only He could move, so I sighed then as I looked at his beautiful sky full of beauty (silver lined clouds) He spoke! He said, " Is anything too difficult for me!?" I agreed and said Amen! Yes, Lord Thy will be done! "Behold I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27"
We don't need to settle for just enough strength to bite our tongues instead of lashing out. Or just love those who love us. Or keep away from doing the not so good things! Or keeping all the hurt stored inside and never showing it or be healed of it. Or settling for broken relationships. Or settling for idols in our lives He desires to remove. No!! and this is the victory that has overcome the world ...our FAITH!!!! "In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness (Jeremiah 33:16)." Where we can be a privileged people (blessed beyond measure) and we can reflect our Savior who has died for the world! Where we no longer have to be bound to our circumstances or past hurts but we can be free, free as the bird with the outstretched wings that glides where ever the wind blows.(Isaiah 40)
The "GOOD NEWS" is we don't have to live in our hurts anymore but we can be healed and helped with the help of His Spirit (the same help Jesus had when on earth) to overcome ALL obstacles! "As God hath said, I will dwell IN them, and walk IN them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. wherefore come out from among them , and be ye separate, saith the lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I WILL receive you, And WILL be a Father unto you, and ye SHALL be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty. 2Corinthians 6:16" I will do a new thing thus saith the Lord where I WILL put my law in their hearts. Amen! I'm experiencing these sweet freeing truths and I want to proclaim to anyone who is facing anything difficult, He said he HAS overcome the world and He so DESIRES to set the captives free! My life, I realize, is a continual walk of faith and freeing from captivity. A continual light to behold then to become. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven"
Matthew 5:16. "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are CHANGED into the same image from glory to glory, even as the Spirit of the Lord. 2Corinthians 3:18" "
These are all treasures that He desires to give us and perform in us. I opened to this one day and it just confirmed to what the Lord was trying to show me, "And I will give thee the TREASURES of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou may know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. Isaiah 45:3" This also goes along, "That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their TREASURES. Proverbs 8:21" His heart is crying out for us to understand these plans he desires for us! ..To give us a future and a hope! He is so good to us!!!
In Him there is all HOPE so lets grab on together and be a light in this dark world and heal all the diseases! We can then live this antidote out which is called LOVE and walk life in fulfilling Corinthians 13.
love you all! Because of him,
