Ever Feel Really “Out of It?”
I have….for instance, when I’m not exercising or sticking to my diet, and I just had a “run in” with a relative. Have you ever felt like you’re just not worth much of anything? Guess what, that was me this morning. I came to work and started reading the prayer requests and praying for each one. The Lord began to help me pray for each one and I began to sense His love and concern for each one in a very special way, giving me prayers to pray that my faith could believe. My heart began to respond and feel His love and concern for all who are His (me included). When you need a touch from the Lord, cry out for Him to touch someone in need, and you can get the blessing of His touch as well.
Why do we get so “down on ourselves,” when we don’t perform like we think we should? His love sees through all the “stuff and fluff” and knows that we long to feel His touch and sense His presence. Thank you Lord, that Your love is not limited by our ability to “feel” it. When we believe that You and Your love is the same all the time, the correction is ours to make. When we reach out to You for others, You can use our gesture to reach us in a way that we don’t open for ourselves.
Father, You will always find a way to reveal Yourself to a child in need. Sometimes we just need to be aware and confess our need. You are always ready to connect “Spirit to spirit” when we trust You more than our feelings. However, You delight in refreshing us in all areas of our lives. Help us to believe that we are one with You and each other in Your sight because of all You accomplished when You walked on earth and lived in a body like ours. Thank you, Lord Jesus; You believe in us as we grow and mature in our believing in You.
