Sometimes we have days when our emotions are down and we struggle to feel joy. So many things can be the cause of these days, but the important thing is, that we need Jesus so much more when we’re hurting and He is always there for us. As I shared with Him, He spoke beautiful words to me, would you like to listen in?
I am encouraged by this verse in Numbers. My struggles as of late, has left me feeling vulnerable and insecure. Because of that, I am so glad I can count on my Father (my Papa) to be who and what He says He is to me. No human, no matter how much they love us, can fulfill the deepest needs we have. Only Papa can!
After I read this verse, I spent some time with Papa God. I was telling Him how I was feeling, how desperate I get for reassurance and how scared I feel to admit these feelings when He began to speak to my spirit. I decided to share with you, my intimate time with Him and what He whispered to me, because I know these precious words are the very words he whispers and purrs to you as well. Sometimes, the noise in our minds and in this world drowns out His voice and we have to quiet ourselves to hear Him. He loves us so very much.
Listen, can you hear Him speaking?
“Rest your troubles with Me, I know how you’re feeling and I want you to know that it matters not what others think. I love you sweet one, more than you can know. My compassions are stirred when you’re hurting like this. Do not think of yourself in this negative way. Don’t you know that it is I who formed you, and that it was I who was with you while you grew in your mom’s womb? I was there in the darkness…
I like how I made you, actually I adore you; and you know… I knew every choice you would make. Nothing you have done has surprised Me. Nothing! If I love you just the way you are, can you allow yourself to love you the way you are?
I want you to really understand this sweet one. The lavishing words I have for you are not like those you experience from the world. My thoughts of you are praiseworthy. Trust Me to do wonderful things with you, even when you feel like you’re broken and dysfunctional, I will do marvelous things.
Let go. Let go of yourself, for it is ‘you’ that is the biggest obstacle. I am your delight. I am your peace. I am you safety. I am yours. Lean on Me!
I am listening to your heart, even when you’re not aware that I am. I listen when you talk to Me and I am interested in your smallest thought, your deepest desire and even your smallest ache. I will not crowd your thoughts though, nor will I control you. I must be someone you want and choose to spend time with.
I am… and I am here with you- Always!”
