“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
So many of us along life’s journey have experienced what it is like to be left—left out, left behind, or just plain left! It may have come because of someone’s own pain or their misunderstanding of who you are, and your own heart. But look at this beloved one of the Most High God—not only is your Saviour, Redeemer, and Friend—Your Advocate, Your Help, and Your Hope, with you right now—every moment of the day—but He has also gone into your future to make a way, and is protecting you from the past, by clearing out all of that rubble, pain, and brokenness—removing it completely!
When everyone else is asking that you do something for them, or be something to them, God of all Creation, has bowed low to walk with you, to encourage you that He knows, sees, and understands you as no one ever could, and that He has come in the most tender and intimate of ways, to bring His love, and to impart His blessings to you! Not to take or demand but to give—to protect, care for and encourage you—to be your strength.
No matter the pain of the past, the fear of the future, or the challenges of this very day, He is there. Lift up your head cherished child; let Him place His hand of blessing upon you. Be known. Be loved. Receive.
