Every once in a while the Lord will lead me to share my 365 with Heather devotional with everyone. If you’ve put God inside of a box and minimized who He is and what He can do for you, you’ll want to continue reading.
Here’s what the Lord is saying today.
Whenever I think about how big God is, it brings me to tears.
I mean, He created this ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
Then, He created all of us and assigned us with a purpose on this earth.
There’s a reason that you were born in this generation and not the 1800’s.
Isaiah 40:12 always blows my mind:
“Who else has held the oceans in his hand? Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers? Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?”
I mean, can we take a moment to chew on this?
WHO HAS HELD THE OCEANS IN HIS HAND?
WHAT A HUGE GOD!
It continues in verse 13: “Who is able to advise the Spirit of the LORD? Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him?”
I want to encourage you to read that entire chapter today. It always puts things in perspective for me about the greatness of God.
So, knowing all of this, why do we have so little faith sometimes?
God can handle your situation.
He can handle you.
He can handle your future.
He is with you.
He is for you.
He is not against you.
For YEARS, I struggled with abandonment. I was adopted at the age of 6 months and that spirit sticks to you as a child. My family is amazing and they loved me so well, but deep down, I was dealing with that spirit.
Then I got saved and gave my life to Jesus. I just figured the abandonment would “go away.”
I had the opportunity to walk in that freedom but I didn’t quite take it.
I was sitting in a dark room figuratively, and I didn’t turn the light switch on.
Meaning, God wanted to set me free from abandonment but I also had to do my part in it all. I had hands laid on me to be free from it .. but I needed to do my part to renew my MIND. I still had that orphan spirit.
So, I jumped into the Bible.
I am adopted.
I am chosen.
I am not abandoned.
God will take care of me.
I seek first the kingdom of God.
His grace is sufficient for me.
I don’t have to be perfect.
He is working out everything for my good.
The list goes on and on!
The words were always there in the Bible.
I just needed to actually take those words and put those words in my heart.
I meditated on scriptures.
When those thoughts came in, I fought BACK with scriptures.
I guarded my heart.
I reminded myself that I’m a co-heir of Christ Jesus.
Now, 17 years later after getting saved, I can honestly say to you, that my God is so good. He’s so big and so mighty there’s nothing He can’t do.
So, surrender your today into His hands. He’s with you.
