Whose Child Are You

We might not get to pick our earthly parents. I don’t know anyone who has had that privilege actually. But we can pick our heavenly Father to be ours for time and eternity. The question becomes would we pick a Father who was the creator of the universe? Would we pick on who put the very stars in place and owns the cattle on a thousand hills? After thinking about those things a better question might be why wouldn’t we choose to call God our Father?
Pausing to be quiet before Him I can hear His still, small voice once again:
Child,I desire to say on to you, you ARE my child. You are surrounded by My mercy and My love – know that you are mine and I AM yours. Yield and draw neigh to my embrace. I AM that I AM – I came and died and conquered death so you might have abundant life. Don’t be half alive. Don’t be half dead but soar/rise up in Jesus’ name and strength and Spirit. He empowers you, yield. Selah.
In Song of Solomon 2:6 we are given the picture of God drawing us close with his left arm under our head and his right arm embracing me.
Our God is an intimate and loving God if we allow Him to be that for us.
In Isaiah 9:2 we are encouraged with comments about people walking in darkness who have seen a great light; on those living in the shadow of death a light has dawned.
Jesus is the light of the world and He can be your own personal light too, you have but to ask Him to forgive you and be your Lord! What an expensive and extravagant gift He has given to you and to me.
In John 10:10 we are told about the thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy and then that Jesus has come so that we may have life and that more abundantly.
That shouldn’t be a difficult choice to make. Looking back I wonder that it took me so long to come to that conclusion.
Isaiah 40:31 speaks of those who hope in the Lord renewing their strength and soaring on wings like eagles, running and not growing weary, walking and not fainting.
Most of us could use a bit of extra strength on a daily basis. What a great promise to realize and hang onto.
Isaiah 40:29 speaks of God giving strength to the weary and increase power to the weak.
I could use more strength and power in my life – more of God’s strength and power and He promises to give it!
Prayer: Dear Lord, please help me to GET UP and begin spending quality time with You, to “draw neigh”, to hear Your voice. I miss You so!! Help me over rule my sleepy flesh. Please don’t let me be puny but let Jesus in me be strong! AMEN
