I wanted to write to you and remind you of who you are in Christ Jesus.
You’re worth to him is incredible, passed our understanding.
Romans 5:8 NKJV — But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Your value does not hang on your works, your possessions, your living status, or anything else you can do or are doing.
He loved you completely before you were even born.
No one can remove that from you.
No one can change God.
The truth is the love remains whether you walk in it or choose to ignore it.
God’s love is steadfast, not based on how you feel or look, not moved by the opinions of others.
If you choose to live in God’s love you will find worth, value, peace, and security.
Nothing else can offer the true love of God.
When we accept His love and learn to walk in it, we can live a life of sacrifice, because nothing is more important than Him.
We can walk through the trials of this life and be free from fear, worry, doubt, or even ‘trying harder’ because we realize all we are and all we have are God’s.
We can sit at the Master’s feet freely, not burdened by the cares of this world.
Yes, you will have trials and tribulations. Yes, there will be suffering and pain.
No, it will not last. For our hope is in heaven. Heaven is where pain and sorrow will be over.
Eternity is worth the cost, because it is far more lasting.
That is why we can walk as women of God and endure what the world, sin, and the enemy throw it us, not in our own strength but through Christ.
We are not alone.
We are not unloved.
We are not held to any other standard than God’s.
What does God’s Word say? What is He saying to you through it? How are you living for Christ today? What are you looking at? Is it encouraging you to run after the things of heaven? How are you teaching your children about Jesus and His Word? What is the legacy you are leaving to other Christian women? How are you being held accountable to God’s Word? Are you hiding it in your heart?
Every stage of life we have a choice on how we live the day we are in.
Each moment we can respond with scripture or we can react with emotion.
It takes a gift of the Holy Spirit to be able to respond, without Him we simply react.
2 Timothy 1:7 NLT — For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
The exciting thing is, He promised to give us all we need if we put our trust in Him.
Be on your guard of placing your trust in mankind; whether it be your friends, your family, or even your husband.
God requires that He comes first in your heart, because that’s how we are designed.
You will never go very fast or well if you always drive your car in reverse.
It wasn’t designed to be driven that way.
Neither were we designed to have anyone in God’s place.
He must sit on the throne of your heart.
If you find that your heart has been wayward, God’s throne has been occupied by someone or something else then repent.
Get on your face before Him and humble your heart.
If you know something or someone is a danger then confess it before God.
Put away anything which hinders or causes you to stumble.
Stop going to or listening to those things which lead you to sin.
Remember the enemy is a liar and an accuser.
If you are hearing accusations, stop and seek God, because chances are they’re not from God.
Conviction is completely different.
It leads us to repentance and seeking God more.
Accusations make you feel want to hide, you feel inferior, dirty, damaged, unable, and worth very little.
Accusations bring up the most painful circumstances and parade them before you again and again. It is what the enemy does best next lieing.
When stuck in the lies and accusations seek God’s Word.
Look for His truth and place it around you as well as in your heart.
Remember that the enemy is a roaring lion, he wants to drown out the still small voice of the Lord.
He wants you to believe lies and choose to destroy yourself.
not even for a moment.
Walk away and seek God’s face.
If only Eve had done that instead of talking to the snake.
Above all, dear heart, walk in the truth.
Serve God and Him only for He is true.
His Mercy is abundant, His grace is sufficient, His word is enough.
I love you and so does He.
Zephaniah 3:17 KJV — The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your promises. Thank You for Your Word. Please help us as women to walk in integrity and truth. Please keep us from lies and deceit both within ourselves and those of the enemy might try to ensnare us with. Lord, please show us our hearts, help us to be humble, true servants of You. Thank You for my dear friend. Please bless her. Speak with her, encourage her. Lift her up and let her eyes see the well of living water, that neither she nor her children would die in the desert. Thank You, Jesus for Your faithfulness. Amen.
