I’m a big believer that the Christian life is not about self; it’s all about God. I believe in dying to self, in laying ourselves down and that He must increase and we must decrease.
In fact, I like to say that God does not exist for our benefit but we exist for His.
And yet the more I go along this journey, I cannot get away from the fact that the more I seek Him out, the more I seek to know who He is, the more He shows me who I am.
God is in the business of bringing healing and wholeness to every person who seeks Him out.
And the more I find I die to self and I empty myself and I seek to know more of Him, the more He turns the tables around and raises me up.
The thought occurred to me this week in meditation that He is in the business, God is in the business of resurrection.
He is in the business of resurrecting our lives. He resurrects who we are as a person. He resurrects our life. He resurrects our future and our hopes and our dreams.
And so I just want to encourage you this week to continue seeking Him out, continue coming to Him in meditation and saying “God I lay myself down, not my will but your will be done. Show me who you are God. Strip away all my preconceived ideas and let me know who you are God”.
And you will see Him, through His grace and His love and His mercy and His goodness and His generosity, He will turn the tables around and you will find that He will bring healing and wholeness to your inner person.
And He will begin to raise you up and resurrect you; resurrect your life and your circumstances.
I pray this blesses and encourages you this week. As always I’m praying for you. God bless. Have a wonderful week meditating on our beautiful Lord.
