I was fortunate enough to make the parade yesterday, and was so thrilled with the turnout; so proud to be part of the cheering crowd. Love you, Vets and families! Enjoy the day today, as state and federal government observe the holiday today.
Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, reminds us that our cry is heard above all the music of Heaven. That’s something, isn’t it?! It takes me Revelation 8:1 where there was silence for about a half hour in heaven. Can you just see Jesus stopping the music to listen to you?
It sure doesn’t feel like that sometimes, though, does it? One day I got the revelation of what that scripture about the Lamb being slain from the foundation of the world means. It means my cry was heard long before, eons before I was even a twinkle in my Daddy’s eyes. It means Jesus paid the price to redeem me from all the fallout of life that I would experience-and cause, way back then. It means that all my questions were answered at the foundation of the world. It means that my comforter, my strength, my advocate, my savior was at the ready-at the foundation of the world. It means that I can, with full confidence, lay my requests at His feet, and then bow in humble adoration and gratitude for His great, great love toward us.
When you get that revelation, you realize that as you’re going through that thing, you’re walking out the ordained answer and outcome to it. You’re lining yourself up with God’s will, His power, and His way of bringing you through. Sometimes it’s hard not to complain, hard to be patient, hard to obey-you know when you really want to smack that person instead of turning away and praying for them, yeah. It’s not a picnic, is it? But as you’re going through in faith; in quietness and trust, you’re going to find blessings to come away from it with. And one day you’ll realize that that thing you went through prepared you to help someone else through their thing. After all, it isn’t all about us-it’s about us all. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” We are His hands and heart in the world.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
