To be honest this week as I was having a mini meltdown I found myself asking God, I call him Abba (daddy) why do I feel so oppressed, stuck, chained, depressed, overwhelmed? I heard Him say because you are believing what the world is telling you. No it wasn’t an audible sound; it was a revelatory thought.
God reminded me that if His son set me free then I am free indeed. Simple right, but how easy is it for us to go back to the mindset of a slave mentality. The world continues to sell fear, terror, destruction, hate, no hope since the creation of the world.
What was my daddy saying? For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11.
So what do I do Abba? Fight! Really because I am tired. Then He whispered The Lord your God will fight for you all you have to do is rest. Exodus 14:14. Oh so I am not meant to carry the burden of the world on my shoulders. Because that weight had begun to take its toll. Nope you’re not, I never expected you to.
So stop watching the world and watch me. Remember for I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future!
Sometimes we need to listen to our parents, I know my heavenly Father has wisdom I can’t even comprehend. Thank you daddy for always listening!
