Knowing Him is knowing His plans for you and me. When we come to know His plans that are to prosper us and never to harm us to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), BELIEVE and ONLY BELIEVE! I love The Message translation of this verse … “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”
When He says you’re forgiven, BELIEVE!
When He says you’re healed, BELIEVE!…
When He says you’re provided for, BELIEVE!
When He says you’re beautiful, BELIEVE!
When He says you’re the apple of His eye, BELIEVE!
When He says you’re the object of His affection, BELIEVE!
When He says “you’re MINE”, BELIEVE!
All these things are only possible to achieve when we believe Jesus, the Son of God, Who suffered and died to GIVE US LIFE AND ENJOY IT, in abundance, to the full till it overflows. It is a divinely exchanged life that happened at the cross meant for our good all because of His great love for us.
You may be hearing a lot of things around you which are against what He has spoken to you BUT… only believe! He is speaking to you and not to those around you. It is in believing in Who He is and what He has done that puts you in absolute rest and yieldedness, bringing peace and joy into your heart knowing that all those words of promises that He has spoken to you SURELY you shall see all because He loves you.
“Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; JUST BELIEVE.” Mark 5:36
The world will always say “to see is to believe” but His word says “believe and you shall see!” We walk by faith and not by sight. When we know how much Jesus loves us, we open ourselves up to experience His great love through what He will do.
“Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge Him. AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES, HE WILL APPEAR; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.” Hosea 6:3
He is with us, in us and for us. Comes with His presence in our lives are all the answers to our petitions for IN CHRIST ALONE, ALL THINGS CONSIST.
Thank You, Jesus, for interceding for me that my faith will not fail and Your grace is more than enough for me to continue to believe what You have spoken and yes, I shall SEE!
