Good morning, my Lord! I am so blessed to call You “my Lord”! Who am I that You should be mindful of me? I am Your servant, Lord; yea, unworthy though I am, You have called me daughter, adopted me into Your family. You are my Father, God, and I love You. You are so good to me! You love me despite my weaknesses and mistakes. Your love is perfect and all encompassing.
David asked a question similar to mine; I suspect Holy Spirit brought it to my mind~
2 Samuel 7:18 The Message
King David went in, took his place before God, and prayed: “Who am I, my Master God, and what is my family, that you have brought me to this place in life? But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming, for you’ve also spoken of my family far into the future, given me a glimpse into tomorrow, my Master God! What can I possibly say in the face of all this? You know me, Master God, just as I am. You’ve done all this not because of who I am but because of who You are—out of Your very heart!—but You’ve let me in on it.
It’s true; it’s nothing I have earned, for how could one such as I earn anything that would impress my God? No, it’s Who You are, my God. Your supreme love nature called forth mankind, people for You to share Your love. You made mankind from the dirt of the earth then You breathed Your very life into us.
The enemy, hoping to spoil Your plan,
crept into the homeland of Adam and deceived him into sinning against You. But it cannot ever win against You, Lord. You had a plan B, Jesus. Your beautiful Son came to earth and in His love sacrificed Himself for us, paying off the sin debt.
Now as we accept Jesus gift, we are freed from all of the enemy’s hold on us. We are able to love You Lord, and dance in Your honor praising and worshipping You! And Your love flows.
I’m remembering when Jesus healed a blind man. He took some dirt of the earth God created, and spit His sacred bodily fluids into the dirt making mud and smeared it onto the blind man’s eyes.
John 9:5-7 (AMP)
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world [giving guidance through My word and works].” 6 When He had said this, He spat on the ground and made mud with His saliva, and He spread the mud [like an ointment] on the man’s eyes. 7 And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing.
Jesus is the Light of the World. He used His precious body fluid to make a mud to smear on the blind man’s eyes. As we were formed by God out of the dust of the earth He created, so Jesus did a creative miracle using spit, and the same dust of the earth, to bring Light restoring sight to the blind man. I recall thinking it kind of gross that He made mud with spittle. But as I look at it from this perspective it becomes a beautiful thing. Just a thought. Rereading 2 Samuel 7:18 the last sentence caught my attention ~
You’ve done all this not because of who I am but because of who You are—out of Your very heart!—but You’ve let me in on it.
God sometimes does let us in on things we know not of by our own power. Has He done this for you? Will you share?
