“You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.”
Psalm 139:5-6 NIV
You may feel like you are on your own to deal with life.
That you are on your own to deal with stress.
On your own to make it happen, whatever “it” is, but you are not on your own, you are God’s beloved child.
His love goes before you and His grace follows behind you.
You are cherished and provided for, guided and anointed to walk confidently in God’s love.
God goes before you to make a way where there seems to be no way, He sets up divine appointments for you to walk in and he brings people across your path that need you.
He blesses you with what you need, to do what He has called you to do.
His hand of blessing is on your head. He has hemmed you in His love.
That means in ALL that you do, big or small, his hand of blessing is on it- because his hand of blessing is on you.
My prayer for you is that you will begin to see yourself in the light of God’s passionate love for you:
He has chosen you.
Provided for you.
Goes before you.
Follows up after you.
God’s love is not like man’s love. He is not controlling you, He is surrounding you with Himself and there is more freedom in his presence than anywhere else in the world.
“For in him we live and move and have our being.”
Acts 17:28 NIV
In Jesus, you have permission to live fully in God’s grace and walk confidently with His hand of blessing on you.
You are beloved and surrounded by Him. Set your fear aside and walk confidently in His love today.
I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and I must say that Just a Minute seems to be written just for me – every single day. Thank you – you have helped to keep my eyes on the Lord.
Jackie, I will be praying for you as you journey through this season. They are for you.
