A few days ago I had the opportunity to spend time with God at a nearby lake for 3 hours with no distractions, just me and Him. Reading His living Word and just talking with Him and wrestling some stuff with Him.
Honestly, we definitely need those times when we just get away from everything, even if it’s only for a few hours with the intention to seek God and His presence. I think God honors those desires when we genuinely seek His face and we desire to have an intimate fellowship with Him.
As I was sitting down, looking at the lake, the mountains, the trees, and all the intricacies of His majestic creation, I can’t help but just sit there in awe and marvel upon His greatness and glory. In Psalm 19 says:
The heavens declare the glory of God and the sky aboveproclaims his handiwork. - Psalm 19:1-2
And then I thought how amazing His hands are. How great and how majestic are His ways. And then it HIT ME.
The same God who created the Universe, who created Heaven and Earth, who created every breathing and living thing on this earth, is the same God who created ME. The very same hands He used to create EVERYTHING is the very same hands He used to create me. He didn’t have to create me, but HE DID.
For you formed my inward parts;you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made - Psalm 139:13-14
He actually took the time to knit me together perfectly. He could’ve just stopped right after He created those beautiful mountains, trees, lakes, the whole universe, but He thought of YOU and ME!
So if you’re reading this right now. I want you to drop what ever you’re doing right and just stop and take a moment to talk to God and thank Him for your existence.
Maybe some of you feel like taking your own life because you think you’re fat, ugly, anorexic loser, worthless, stupid, addict, poor, lonely, and the list goes on.. THAT’S A LIE. The enemy obviously wants to drag you down. I want you to realize that you are not an accident my beloved. You have a purpose and He has a PLAN for your life. The fact that you are breathing and alive, He has given you a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy life and have an intimate relationship with Him, live for Him and enjoy Him forever!
It’s time to stop dwelling on your past and start moving forward with your Heavenly Father. He is crazy about you. He really is. He is waiting for you to run back to Him.
Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. - Matthew 11:28
Grace and Love in Christ,
