I looked to my God for help when my spirit was low

I write to you this morning with a heavy heart. So I sought refuge with my Father. No need for details lets just say the day has started on a low note. But I refused to be caught in my feelings or the moment. I looked to Father. I looked into the glory of the Most High. I remembered who is able to order the stars moon and planets. Who is able to command mighty angels. Who can weave the petals of the most delicate flower or paint patterns on the softest wings of a butterfly. He is God, who can make storms speak mysteries with thunder and lightening! He is God who is able to whisper and sing softly cheerful melodies with brooks and streams. I saw Him. My heart needed the consolation of the Holy Spirit. And that gentle fire encouraged me. A true worshipper blesses God’s name even sometimes when we don’t feel like it. A true worshipper bows his head before the King! A worshipper lifts his hands and his heart to God! And we turn our faces up to the sky and waiting for the droplets of the rain of mercy, the rain of peace, that refreshing pitter patter on our skin of the love of God. No heart, no matter how low or how shaken in pain or how weak with fear or how hardened with anger or how dark with sin and guilt can remain the same when it receives a word from God.

So I took my situation to God. As an offering and then I opened my Bible…looking for something to speak life into my situation and my heart.

(NKJV)  – the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
I took this one. As a plea. I am a “son”. A prince. A child of the King. I stand to inherit. I will sit in high and exalted places not because I am anything, for when I see the works of His hands what am I that He should make me “co-heir”. I am like an earthly prince. I was simply born (adopted) into the house of Christ. I was a sinner. My great –ancestor Adam abdicated the throne, but when I called out to my God, Yehoshua (the Lord, He is my salvation) He was quick to save and adopt.

But I knew I still have many things within me to overcome. I submitted my human emotions to Him. I prayed in the Spirit and said to the Holy Spirit!…”rule over my heart, with a sceptre of iron”. Chastise and rebuke. Uplift and encourage. Humble and exalt. “I am Your servant, here I am, what would you have of me Lord”.!

(NKJV)  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

The word of God is truth. But not just that, the word of God is a delight to the heart! It uplifts the heaviness. It calms the burning in the bone marrow. It oils the dry bones. It causes the worshipper to confess with deep fearful reverence before God. To paraphrase Jesus. A worshipper of God cries out, My God My God – why am I forsaken?! ah but though I don’t know if I will survive this situation, though I don’t know if I will survive this death and see the resurrection of my situation. Though I can’t see through the darkness. With my last breath, with my last heart beat. With my last hope. With my last piece of faith STILL will I commend my spirit into Your hands. Jehovah Shalom  (God!, He will be my peace). Jehovah Shamah (God is here and ever present near me). God will not take forever to mould me into what is pleasing to Him. He has already done it. (Jehovah Tsikednu – the Lord He is my righteousness!)It will not take me a lifetime to live in His glory and offer Him sacrifices of obedience. I will make my God proud of me. Because He is the One, who will make me a short work upon my heart.Romans 9:28Romans 9:28

(NKJV) For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, Because the LORD will make a short work upon the earth.”

I know He loves me. The Bible says we are commanded not to worship idols or make any image of anything on heaven or on earth. But we are His image. In His image. We are small idols of God. That is why we cannot hate one another. When we see one another a deep respect and honour and awe should fill us as we see each other and treat each other with respect. Not that we should worship each other. But God held Himself back and instead of raising up monuments and statutes. He reserved and gave that specific privlege to us. To be the monuments. To be the living walking statues that the inhabitants of universe and the angels look at and say to themselves, there goes a human being! He looks just like His Dad! To some that’s blasphemy because their hearts can’t handle the risk of pride it might bring with it. But I don’t rely on my merit for anything. I rely on God and work out my salvation with fear and trembling. I learn to respect myself. To guard my health. To do my best in life. Because I am a manifestation a living example a proof to the universe of the love of God. My heart beating is a witness

God favours me. God covers me. I cannot fall. I cannot be lost. I cannot lose. God favours me. I remain in good health. I prosper, in times of drought I have Plenty. God favours me. I speak health and life to myself. I increase. I prevail. I shall not stay low forever, but my heart is uplifted. I said to myself, remember Him and remember who you are and be uplifted. Be encouraged. Be full of joy. Be inhabited by Peace. Be a sanctuary for Immanuel. And so I conquer and I vanquish. Not by might or by power but by that ancient Spirit who hovered over the waters of genesis, mulling over the creativity He was about to unfold on the universe. What God says is good. Every judgement from His throne is just and righteous. His intensions are pure. His actions are constrained by love. His thoughts order the constellations and keep me alive. His forgets nothing except my sins. He remembers everything, except my wrong-doing. When we speak prayers, He still even today, turns my body into His temple. And He inhabits me inside and out. He defends me. Fights for me. The one I crucified Him. But He is God! So He consoles me.

(NKJV) 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star.

This is who I worship and love (though I’ve never seen Him with my eyes).

This is my Father (though He has never held me in His arms, or taught me how to walk like a man or play or write or read I miss Him).

This is my God (the beginning and the end though I cant prove it).

This is my “God is with me” (my Immanuel).

This is “my peace and goodwill” to me (my shalom).

My seal in the Book.

My proof that I will walk in the streets of heaven.

My Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
