He’s Got This

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4:11–12

Beloved,

Come into His Throne Room — Kiss the Door Post as you pass over its Threshold. Recognize that everything here is Holy and has been since the beginning. We Trust in a God that Loves us more than we could ever love ourselves. His Heart is bent on our Salvation and LIfe — extinguishing the death from sin, and restoring the Right Relationship between the Father and us.

We are His Sons and Daughters — prodigals that have walked away from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil with insight that we should not have possessed and we gloried in it — thinking that we would be able to be like Him, Gods in our own right. Even in the depth of this tragic sin, He still loves us — even after we have squandered our inheritance. He still watches for us to return.

We were made in His image. It is a mark of who we really are, His Creation — His Design — His Children.

There is a song that He sings over us. One of reclamation — gathering us back under His Wing, His Robes. For it is only there that we can find our identity, to know truly who we are. He sings a Song of Truth, that wraps itself around us — invading our heart and mind, inviting us to “Come Home.”

He sent His Son Jesus — to accept our fate for that lost moment in the Garden of Eden, for the sin that has trailed behind us ever since, the moment we were born into this corrupt world. The Song that He sings over us has a wonderful verse, that carries the weight of victory over death, “death, where is your sting?”

We have been set Free through His Son Jesus who gave everything to possess us, to own us — as children coming to the Father and ultimately as His Bride (the church) in the greatest romance of the ages. Trust these words. Know His Voice. Give yourself completely over to the Lord, and He will take care of the rest.

No matter the struggle, or disease, or injury, or pain. He’s got this!
