“God is higher than anything and anyone, outshining everything you can see in the skies. Who can compare with God, our God, so majestically enthroned, surveying his magnificent heavens and earth? He picks up the poor from out of the dirt, rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash, Seats them among the honoured guests, a place of honour among the brightest and best.” Psalm 113:4-6 (MSG)
We walk into a room and look for a place to hide, away from everyone and everything. We take the back row and the back seat because a lifetime of being rejected and pushed aside tells us that is where we belong. And if we run out of people to say it to us, we have enough of our own painful memories stored that we can remind ourselves all day long. “Who do you think you are?” “No one”, we answer, and so we hide.
Here He comes again, this wonder working, miracle making, passionately loving God of ours and says, “Not today My Princess. Take My hand and come with Me. I am seating you here, right beside Me, in a place of honour and blessing. Sit with Me, My Beloved, with the brightest and best. Because that is who I made and meant for you to be.. No back row or back seat for you beauty. You belong to Me.”
Oh, dearest heart, don’t you see? You are a shining star in the midst of His majestic creation—the object of His love and affection. Shine on, beloved of the Most High God! Let the whole world see!
