I am embarrassed to admit this but I have been trying something different when problems arise. Something I should have been doing all along.
Although we all try to display an “I got it together”image to the world, most if not all of us are plagued by self doubt, insecurities and a feeling of unworthiness. I know I am.
What if I told you that you have someone in your life that has searched you and knows you, end to end. He knows you so well in fact that He knows when you sit and when you rise. He can and does discern your thoughts from afar. He searches your path before you take it and He is acquainted with ALL your ways. Even the ones you take special care to hide from the world.
When you speak, He knows what you will say. He is your personal safe room. Where you go,, He precedes you but what’s more, He takes your hand in His. With Him even the darkness is bright.
To have someone on your side that was responsible for forming you while you were still in your Mother’s womb, that is priceless.. To know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made because of the one who made you Is invaluable in ways you cannot even begin to understand!
A beautiful thought is that Our Creator saw us before we were formed, He has a book in which every last detail of “You” were written. Think for just a moment on the significance of this.
The good news is you have all this and so much more.
Psalm 139:1-6 and 13-17 gives us the truth of who we are and who is responsible.
God is the reason we are and He is the reason we are what we are. He loves us because of who we are, not in spite of who we are. God is the only unconditional love you will find on this earth. He is the reason that we need to look for ourselves in Him and not in man. Nothing and I mean nothing can take our royal status away. Something enormous is within each of us. Don’t look inside yourself to get permission to look up, try looking up to Him before you look inside. You will have a better idea of what you are seeing that way.
Live up to your inheritance. You will never look back.
…………..and so I ride.
