You know, there are times when I am just floored by the Greatness of God! In my secret time of the wee hours this morning I became in awe of Him yet again. Not in the meaningless babble of repetitive flattering words or in fear to please a master. I am overcome by the simplicity of His relevance.
My prayer today looked like this...
Try to add together all the pebbles of sand on all the earth, the vastness of it. Gathering it all together in your mind on a massive beach next to the sea. Knowing that out of all those small pebbles, He sees you. He picks you out not as one of the a million in likeness but one of high value. Like a miner who treasures the vein of gold found out of the ginormous mountain range. My God, my Jesus, looks upon me and He looks upon you with excitement. You are the 'X marks the spot' on His treasure map!
Seriously! I had this playing over like a video while I was trying to pray (accept it was me I saw, not you;) ). So, I took the hint and just went with it. My prayer turned into a WOW session. I could not ask for anything or worry. It was like I had no needs and I was aware of nothing else. All I could do was try to breathe. He had me in His presence and I was awestruck.
He has bragging rights over me and He has bragging rights over you! I can see it now...
As He is enthralled in the excitement of all His children, He fixes His attention on you. He calls Michael over with a proud puffed out chest while beaming with radiance in His smile as He tells Michael to look upon you. In that moment Michael is blown away in awe by the delight he sees in the face of the Creator who, out of all the vastness of the universe, singles you out with the pride of a Daddy.
...His bragging rights are astounding and He chooses to brag on you!
He will blow your mind too. Do you wanna see how He blew my mind for the first time years ago? Watch this video below. I promise, you will never look at God the same way again. (not affiliated in any way) You will never look at the pebbles in the sand the same way again either, your welcome. Have a super blessed week you guys :)
