“[The Lord] raises the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap and the dung hill. That He may seat them with princes, even with the princes of His people. Psalm 113:7 (AMPC)
With no one in life to tell us the truth of who we really are, certain lies may weave their way in, taking up permanent residence if they remain unchallenged. Left out, left-behind, left broken, they tell us we were meant for the ash heap. And that the dung, or garbage hill, is where we belong. Yet your Beloved Jesus comes, shining like the noonday sun; wrapping you in the truth of His love; sending the darkness fleeing away.
The One who sees you as you really are—sees you in beauty and in grace, no matter how you see yourself, or how others have sought to define you. He sees that you were meant for so much more than to be on the bottom of anyone’s pile of opinions, because you are at the top of His list of love—a place He has secured for you for all eternity.
He lifts you above the pain of the past, into the glorious future He has planned for, and promised. Take His hand precious one and allow Him to set you in the midst of the abundant life that He has desired for you from the beginning of time.
“Look up beloved”, He says. “Shake off the dust; the limits of others; and sit instead with Me. Come up higher, dearly loved one, where you belong. The best is truly yet to be.”
