1 Peter 2:9-10
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.
Good Afternoon Anchor Point Family!
FINALLY the sun has emerged and wow what a difference it has made in the overall feel of the day. The sun emerging… as I felt the light warm my skin, it felt like it went to the very core of me and lifted some of the weight that I had carried into the week. I found this to be the same feeling as I sat down and had a Heart to Heart with Jesus on Sunday morning. There had been many things clouding over my heart and my spirit was restless; I needed to worship Him by bringing Him my storm. The whole storm. And in His kindness… He showed me He was inviting it. That the things I was carrying were acting as a wall between us, one that wasn’t supposed to be there. I had to let it out, (1 Peter 5:7 says, “cast ALL your anxiety on Him because He cares for you”) all of the yuck, let it rain on Him (He is so capable of handling it!) to make space for the light of His truth to hit my heart. He’s so good and patient, isn’t He, and I was comforted as I worshiped Him.
This week our Worship Wednesday offering in song is from Lesley, and as I listened to it what a beautiful reminder that reigning above everything, above all of our circumstances, “over the universe and over every heart,” over your storm and mine, we have KING JESUS, and we have the promises of His inheritance.
“The reign of darkness now has ended
in the kingdom of light, in the kingdom of light.
Forever under your dominion you’re the king of my life, the king of my life.
You reign above it all You reign above it all…”
May you be blessed by this song, and your hearts be filled with His light today.
