NEED UNDERSTANDING? I bet this gets your attention, because it’s true for most of us. Being in a relationship means being in a union with others who seek to know you and care for and with you. We have a God who knows every day of our life before there was ever one of them and a God who scrutinizes every single one of our thoughts and knows every word on our tongue, including the thoughts we can't shape and the words we have not said and maybe only thought or muttered and he knows them before they ever happen. So, NEED UNDERSTANDING?
Today in “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young (3/17)
Come to Me for understanding, since I know you far better than you know yourself. I comprehend you in all your complexity; no detail of your life is hidden from Me. I view you through the eyes of grace, so don’t be afraid of My intimate awareness. Allow the Light of My healing Presence to shine into the deepest recesses of your being - cleansing, healing, refreshing, and renewing you. Trust Me enough to accept the full forgiveness that I offer you continually. This great gift, which cost Me My Life, is yours for all eternity. Forgiveness is at the very core of My abiding Presence. I will never leave you or for sake you.
When no one else seems to understand you, simply draw closer to Me. Rejoice in the One who understands you completely and loves you perfectly. As I fill you with My Love, you become a reservoir of love, overflowing into the lives of other people.
O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all of my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. Psalm 139:1-4
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22
