When I was a small child, and I would scrape my knee or hurt myself, I would run to my parents for help. When I needed reassurance to know if I was ok, I would run to my parents.
I knew that they were the source of all that I needed and they were at the very center of my world.
and then life happens, sin happens, trust is broken, independence becomes the new way to operate.
For some of you, having a safe place was never even a season in your life.
As I was praying on Tuesday night God revealed to me that I was walking as though I was an unloved child in many areas of my life.
I was living as though He didn't want to be that reliable father, the one who is the source of all my help, the center of my world.
I was reminded of Psalm 103: 8, 13
The Lord is compassionate and Gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
As a father has compassion on his children so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.
Some of you have never experienced a father's compassion. The good news: You can experience what that is today. You can experience what it means to have this new identity. You are accepted, secure and significant.
Those are not for the future, they are right now.
You might say, Erica, I have a hard time believing that for myself. Second good news, you can choose to believe the truth through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. If you are a Christian, you are not at the mercy of your own efforts. The Holy Spirit is there to empower us.
We can say "I believe, but help me in my unbelief". Through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, you have the power to walk as the child loved by God that you are.
God bless everyone! :)
