-If you didn’t pour the coffee, no one would have anything to drink.
-Believe me, sometimes that happens.
Psalms 139: 1-4
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
God says in His Word that you are beautiful, you are accepted, you are loved, and you are blessed in all things in the Beloved. What Jesus said to the woman caught in adultery, He says to you; He doesn’t condemn you. Like what He did to her, He does to you; He protects you from your accusers. What He said to Zaccheus, He says to you; even though you’re undeserving and even though people will murmur about how scandalous it seems, He call out to you by your name, and asks to dine and stay with you.
Beloved, I do believe that God’s goodness is incomprehensible. We can’t at times understand it. Let’s believe Him. He has a good opinion about you because of Jesus, and He will keep that always. You don’t have to live in the shadows, hiding in your shame. Jesus beckons you, because He is ready to exchange your identity with His. You just have to take it. You may think it’s hard, but no. He will help you walk in that identity. Just trust Him.
