Last night, I was praying that the Lord would lead me in what to write about for this blog. He often speaks to me in dreams. But last night in my dream, He did something a little different. He sang to me.
In my dream, I sat as an audience of one as the Lord sang. It was like my own personal concert just Him and I.
At the time, I was not fully aware of what was taking place. I remember feeling fortunate to be there and was enjoying singing along to some of my favorite Christian songs. Interestingly enough, He looked and sounded like the lead singer from Third Day, but maybe I should vice versa that. If you have seen pictures of Mac Powell or heard his strong, rugged voice, it all seems a perfect fit.
So this morning, The Lord brought me to Zephaniah 3:17 that says,
“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”
Now, I grew up singing, “Jesus loves me,” but since He’s God, I have always believed His love to be a kind of job requirement. Always my mind-set, He loves everyone. He’s like a husband with a billion, needy wives. -He’s busy- If the truth be known, I have always been a little jealous of this woman, I once I read about, who memorized entire books of the Bible. I have always thought, He must really like her.
A couple of years ago while praying, I heard in my spirit, as if two angels were talking amongst each other , “She doesn’t know how much He really Loves her.” I think of that often. If we really knew the truth of how much we mean to Him, I believe we would think and act differently. Eph 3:17-19 says,
..”And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the Love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
To truly be rooted and grounded in the Love of God. I believe, all our fears would fad away knowing that Almighty God is working on our behalf and providing for all our needs. We wouldn’t work so hard trying to be acceptable, because we would know we are already beautiful and accepted by the creator of the universe. We would be filled with peace in all things and circumstances knowing we are not alone because our beloved will never leaves us or forsake us. – The fullness of God, can you imagine?
The truth is you are not just one of the billions. In His eyes, you are one in infinity. Priceless – A true one of a kind masterpiece. – In Him, He has set you apart and made you His own!
And Jesus sings over each and every one of us. Our own personal concert or harmony where two hearts come together and rejoice (finding pure joy) in one another. Jesus is our living water and bread of life. “May we be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God”- “grasping how wide and long and deep is the Love of Christ.”
