The Lord blessed me with some amazing friends who have experiences with the Lord that rock my world. I’ve often come away from times with them and wonder if I will ever experience anything close. It was in one of those times when He said:
“No comparisons. My love for you is matchless. My time with you unique. Let Me lead and every need will be met, all that you want and more. It’s the journey, not the destination. Rest in Me Beloved. Your times ARE in My hands.
You don’t have to be perfect to be loved.
I’ve already done that for you.
Just be you and know that you are loved always and forever. You are Mine.”
I love these verses from Psalm 33:
The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
14 From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
15 He fashions their hearts individually; (Psalm 33:13-15)
God loves variety. If you look at all He’s created, you will see more unique animals, insects, fish, plants, etc. than you can comprehend. Even our fingerprints. There is no other human being who has the same fingerprints as another. He inhabits each of us, yet, He expresses His presence in ways that are individual to us.
I love this piece out of 1 Corinthians 12: 15-20, 27
15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? 18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. 19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be?
20 But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.
27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
In this season competition and comparison can be stirred on many levels, decorations, size of gifts, unity in family, etc. Let’s remember, that Abba’s greatest joy is to see us loving who He created us to be and sharing what He’s given us with others.
