You know my every step before my journey begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. With your hand of love upon my life, you impart blessings to me. This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding brings me wonder and strength”. Psalm 139:4-6 (b)TPT
Many of us along life’s journey have experienced what it is like to be left—left out, left behind, or just plain left! This may have come because of someone’s own pain or brokenness, or perhaps their lack of understanding of who we are, and our true heart and intentions. In all of that, the pain and the lingering heartache, is very real.
But look at this, beloved one of the Most High God, for you are not alone now, and in truth, you never have been. Jesus, your Saviour, Redeemer, and Friend—your Advocate, Help, and Hope, was with you always. Even when you could not see or feel His presence, He was near. He is with you right now and will remain beside you every moment of the day. Always, and only a breath away.
Protecting you from the pain of the past, He is clearing away the rubble, shattered pieces and all—showing you how that came to be. He is healing the tender places, then going ahead into your future, showing you a better way. When everyone else may be asking you to do something for them, or be something to them, God of all Creation, has come to give lavishly from His generous heart of love to bless you! He has come to protect, care for, and encourage you—to be your strength and your shield. Your comfort and your constant guiding hand.
No matter the pain of the past, the fear of the future, or the challenges of this very day, He is there. Heaven’s resources are at your disposal; angel armies at the ready to assist!
Lift up your head, cherished child; let God place His hand of blessing upon you now. Be fully known in the beauty of who you truly are, not what others have thought or said about you. Be loved exactly as you are and receive the fullness of all that is waiting for you. More than you can ask for or imagine. So much more!
Look up, beloved, into the face of love and receive—for pure, true, eternal, and unending love, is lovingly gazing back—longing to be there, to bless, and to care for you!
Holy Spirit, I thank You that in all the ways I do not see, cannot comprehend or understand the wonders of God’s great love and care, You will teach and instruct me!
Renew my mind today I pray, so I can come to know the faithfulness of God in all the days past, and the promises preserved in the days that are yet to be.
Let me feel Your hand of love upon my life today and help me to receive with joy, and with thanksgiving, the blessings You have prepared for me.
Guard me God with Your unfailing love and let all of my days be redeemed in You. You are the Worthy One. Faithful. Trustworthy. And True.
