For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
These words were a fresh gust of air to me today. Because this body, mind and soul feel anything but right now.
Feelings may feel true to you, but they are not necessarily Truth.
If God says it, its Truth.
If you are like me, and feel like you are being crushed between hard and harder, let His Words, this Truth, soak deep into all the worn out and sore places, as healing oil from His heart to yours.
The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His people, His treasured possession. Deuteronomy 7:6 (NIV)
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)
or even better, in the Message version:
Your God is present among you, a strong Warrior there to save you. Happy to have you back, He’ll calm you with His love and delight you with His songs.
These are the three reminder verses God spoke to me this morning, when I needed a Truth adjustment to speak louder than my emotions.
I pray He will remind YOU how much He adores, cares and is with you today as well!
