Have you ever wondered how the mere presence of the Holy Spirit in us doesn’t shatter our frame? He is bigger than our thoughts can imagine. And, He is ours for the taking. Mmm.
I struggle at times with feelings of worthlessness. Which is ironic to me, knowing full-well who I am in Christ. And, who He is. Yet, man-made markers and rewards put a price on our heads –
‘very good, you are worth this much’,
‘your value means this __ to us, but, you, there, well, let’s see … you’re worth zero.’
And, from those man-made criteria we begin to believe we are a zero. Because, energy follows thought.
When that happens, here is where to take that energy … when evidence comes your way, especially from those in authority over you, that they think you are sub-par, that you are a zero, take it straight to your Creator. (gosh, I’m crying my eyes out this morn).
In His goodness, a positive seed is sown: not a lollipop-pops and roses positivity, but a deep positivity that alleviates suffering – the kind of compassion that is salve for our health because it is a form of kindness … and His being and His Word settles back in on us in the form of FAITH, “Ang, you’ll be okay, no matter what happens. I have a greater place for you.”
And, you know from this place you get clear on the situation, you know it’s time to take action. This is the place He walks with you into solution-thinking. When you choose to walk with Him, you move – not just plain old ordinary move, but the Holy-shift, “I should’ve thought just a little bit bigger” kind of move.
The Ultimate Authority has your back, Beloved. Walk right there.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:11-13 NLT
Grab His hand.
Be led to solutions.
Hang on for the ride.
