For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring”. Acts 17:28 (AMPC)
What a glorious invitation this is—to abide continually in love! You can pick up your whole life, even now—the perfect bits and pieces and the painfully broken ones too—and place it firmly and solidly “in” Christ. You, along with your past, present, and future, can live in the fullness of Who Jesus is, and find rest in the wonder of all that He has done.
In this extraordinary divine exchange, you step out of your own reality, with all its limitations and shortcomings, and step into something entirely different: Christ firmly rooted in your heart, and you, safely dwelling in His. All that is needed for life—real, abundant, overcoming life— you will find in Him. Weakness becomes strength; sorrow replaced by joy; fear is whittled down to size; and perfect love is magnified.
Dwelling securely in the strength and safety of His love, you can relax and be; for you are covered and cared for. Cherished child, you are marvellously and gloriously, free!
Father God, You are Creator over all, and as amazed as I am to even think of this—You are the God Who created me! You created me to know You, to walk with You all the days of my life, to receive the fullness of Your love, and to love others too.
There is no limit or lack in You Lord, everything I need for life and godliness, You have already supplied. My identity comes from You alone—not from others thoughts or opinions, ideas or suggestions, for my life, fully redeemed and restored in Christ, finds it fulfilment in You.
Thank You for making me Lord, for this moment in time, for Your purposes in the earth, for all that is in Your heart for me to do. Don’t let me miss out, I pray, on even one small thing that You have planned—or all that is in Your heart that is great and grand.
I long for it all Lord, to see You, my Saviour and my Lord, receive the fullness of Your hearts desires, and the full measure of Your reward!
All glory belongs to You Lord, for You alone are worthy.. You are most worthy of it all!
