-For those that feel Invisible-
Number one, Know that you’re not.
(This is a continuation of my previous blog. As I said this will be a 3 part series so here is part two!)
WE ARE SIGNIFICANT.
One of my favorite passages that speaks truth over me concerning significance is Psalm 139.
Three years ago, I went away to a ministry/music university. While I studied there, this passage came to life in a whole new way. I had read through this passage countless of times before, but the Lord did something in me through these words.
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.”
WE ARE SIGNIFICANT. WE ARE KNOWN by God!-from before time began. His Hand will LEAD us, His hand will Hold us.
God SEES us. He sees us right where we are. WE ARE NEVER OVERLOOKED. He knows our thoughts before we say a word. He made us and He does ALL THINGS WELL. Every single day of our lives is written in His book and He will guide us every step of the way as we look to Him for the answers.
This whole chapter is powerful and speaks to who we are in God’s eyes, but Verse 18 is like Extra beautiful–If that’s possible that is. 😉
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!
This verse reassures us and encourages my heart greatly that He thinks of me. He thinks of us. His thoughts towards us outnumber the grains of sand. Being a beach girl, I know sand! 😉
His thoughts towards us are good thoughts, abundant thoughts.
I want to leave us with one more scripture, John 10:14-15.
I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, just as my Father knows me and I know the Father.
We are KNOWN and We are SEEN. WE ARE SIGNIFICANT. Never Invisible. Let’s let these truths wash over us and extinguish the lies we’ve been hearing in our minds. His Love Covers all.
