Celebrate . . .
You have much to celebrate!
The contrast between . . .
what's perceived or experienced,
and the truths
you struggle to accept.
You are rejoiced over
in your present state!
So hard to get
your head around?.
It's not about your head,
it's about your heart.
Assurance is your peace
as you contemplate
the songs sung over you.
YOU are . . .
rejoiced over with gladness
in the FACTS
of your Salvation!
Meditate . . .
Deeply On This.
The amazing journey when walking with God is the ongoing relationship and revelation we have with Him. Our relationship with Him predicates the revelations and experiences of His truths.
There are many examples in scripture of normal simple people who walked with God and experienced the promises they were given. These examples are there for us to take courage in and also to encourage us into the experiences which are there for us as well.
The key is to personalize the promises and experiences, even if you are not actually experiencing these yourself.
The above poem was written from a scriptural base that incorporates all the promises and facts about how God sees us as His children. He celebrates us and sings over us with joy.
Can you imagine God rejoicing over you with gladness in songs? There are many times when I meditate and celebrate this scripture in Zephaniah 3:17 and then there are those other times. These are the times when I am struggling with myself and question why He would rejoice over me!
God's ways are not our ways and without renewing the spirit of our mind we will struggle to receive the truth of His words. Celebrate and accept all His promises over your life as you come across these revelations.
# - God is Love, the scripture declares, accepting His love personally can be a problem as we live in this conditional world. Do you have any personal conditions which prevent you from receiving His love, if so list them and work WITH GOD on them.
# - If you have your own children do you sing over them with joyful songs? If not, why not?
# - Can you celebrate yourself as God does, without focusing on all the conditions, mistakes and issues you may have? Do you Love yourself?
Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV
The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
