Yes Jesus Loves You…. Words that didn’t really hit home this morning after a heated discussion with my partner who is not interested in God, “he doesn’t love me, I’m gay, I don’t want to know him”. To put it mildly I was so upset, have been praying for some time now that she will come to know Jesus and as I walked to the station tears rolling down my face I just said God how are you going to do this she is not interested, she won’t change.
But our God is a God of love, of patience and of kindness, our God longs for us all to come to know him so after some time of praying and praising our awesome God I kind of felt better and started to rebuke the enemy – you are not having her, God is in control and God has a plan, and he has, just because I can’t see the way doesn’t mean there isn’t one, I will keep praying and praising and on the day she gives her life to God I know that all the angels in heaven will be praising with me.
As I walk through the valley I strain to see the beauty all around me, the mountains loom high and wide and freedom inhabits the other side.
As I walk through the valley I ask Jesus to join me, to walk the path alongside me, he comforts me, guides me, makes molehills out of mountains, flattens the path and I see that victory resides on the other side.
As I walk through the valley I feel God’s love surround me and suddenly the beauty engulfs me, my eyes are opened as I grasp the reality that Jesus my saviour is with me constantly.
As I walk through the valley I say to the enemy, there’s nothing you can say or do to dent me, I belong to God and I am redeemed, I belong to God and I am complete.
As I walk through the valley the path becomes clearer, I look at my surroundings and I feel my God nearer.
