Faith is simply seeing what God sees. It’s choosing God’s way, even when things look differently in the natural. When you set your thoughts on higher things, you are looking at life through your eyes of faith and seeing what God sees. For example, you may have a financial need today, but when you look higher, you see God’s promise to supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. You may have sickness in your body today, but when you look higher, you see that Jesus paid for your sickness and diseases. You may feel lonely today, but when you look higher, you see that God has promised to never leave you nor forsake you. As you study the Word of God, you are setting your thoughts on higher things. As you set your thoughts on higher things, your faith will become stronger, and you will begin to see those things become reality in your life. You’ll see God’s hand of blessing, and you will live the abundant life He has prepared for you.
“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book” (Psalm 56:8, NLT).
Do you know how important you are to God? He cares so much about every detail of your life. He cares about your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. In fact, what you are going through is so important to Him that He records every sorrow and collects every tear you’ve shed. Why would God record your sorrows and collect your tears? It’s because He loves you so much. He is your Vindicator. He’s keeping account of every wrong that’s ever been done to you so that He can make up for every single one of them. He wants to restore everything that has ever been stolen. He wants to heal every single hurt and pain. He sees the longings and desires of your heart, and you can rest assured that behind the scenes He is working things out for your good!
I want to remind you today that God is with you. He is on your side. He has your best interest at heart, and He is working to bring restoration and peace to every area of your life. Keep standing, keep believing, and keep doing the right thing because the One who collects your tears will restore every broken place in your life!
Prayer for Today: Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me and setting me free. Thank You for being my Vindicator. I choose to release every hurt, pain and sorrow, knowing that You will make all things new. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Anonymous asked: Can you tell me how to build an intimate relationship with God?
Hello, beloved! I would tell you to start finding time to spend alone with God so you can tell Him all that is in your heart, read the Bible, write in your journal, or listen to Him— they are all good. They helped me a lot.
However, I want to share to you also what I learned in the past few months (the time when I lost the desire to write in my journal or spend time with God). It’s this: the best way to the Father is through Jesus. Know Him more. See Him in every situation. Allow Him to reveal more of Him to you and love you. Jesus came to reveal the heart of tje Father and He wants to do that to you too.
Jesus is our way to the Father. He can use different methods to establish us in His love, but it will always boil down to Him. That is why we set our eyes not on ourselces or what we do, but upon Him.
