And I find myself here, again, sitting in front of my computer, coming back to a place in my life where I felt happy, when I would write and share the fresh revelations that He would give me. You don't know how much joy it gives me to write again. And, really, I'm not worried if this will help or encourage someone or not; if He told me to do so, then I will do so, and with joy in my heart will I do it!
I was reading His Word this morning, and I found this scripture that I am going to share with you. I will be honest, I don't remember if I had already read this before... it was as if a fresh, stream of water was filling my heart and my spirit as I read it today. For me, in my innermost being, it was the very first time I read this passage and it was like meeting for the very first time a new love! And oh how lovely it feels when God gives you His Word and He gives it to you as a revelation for your life, for the NOW, for a Rhema moment where He opens your eyes, your spirit and understanding so that you may know Him more in a deeper and more intimate manner!
You may ask yourself what is the Scripture I am talking about. I want you to read it slowly, I want you to meditate on it with your heart, re-read it a few more times until you understand, feel and see what He is telling you: "And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!" Isaiah 30:18 [AMP]
Did you hear that? He is LONGING to show you His Love. He waits for us, expecting and looking for us to come to Him so He can show us His Grace, His Love, His Mercy, and His Justice! We are blessed, all of us who wait for Him! Could it be true that He awaits each morning for us to come before His Presence and talk with Him? Could it be that He is anxiously awaiting to bless us with His grace and favor and His mercies and forgiveness? I am not telling you yes, He, himself is telling you that He is!!!
To read these Words and know that my Father awaits for me is like a child that has a secret, good news to share and can't contain his joy or happiness and wants to yell it to the whole world... like a child that has received a gift that he really wanted and wants to show everyone, he can't keep quiet or keep it hidden... I can imagine my Daddy like that, each morning anxiously awaiting to bless me, wanting to give me His grace and favor, waiting for that moment where I come into His presence and say, Daddy, here I am, I've come to tell You how much I love you, how much I need your favor, forgiveness, grace... How do you feel in knowing that He waits for you, to bless and favor you, to give you His grace and love? I am overjoyed and full of peace in knowing that THAT'S my Daddy, who crowns me with favor and blessings!
As you can see, I can't keep what He told me this morning all to myself. I had to share it with you, because just as it has been a refreshing revelation to my spirit, I know that it will be also to your life. Forget about the situations the devil has been trying to get you to remember or stay focused on, just concentrate and meditate on how your Daddy awaits to bless you. He awaits for you to go to Him and receive what He has for you. We are blessed! Seek His Victory, His Peace, His Joy... Be a conqueror, He has created us to conquer!
And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]! Isaiah 30:18 [AMP]
It is my prayer that this reflection be a part of your daily portion.
