I grew up enslaved to the things of this world, to things like fear, depression, finding worth in career, work, education, and in pleasing people. I grew up not knowing there exists a good father for me. I grew up not knowing what it feels like to know that I am loved no matter what I do or what I miss doing.
Today, as I look at my recent birthday, I am grateful that I turned a new year alive in God and with God. I know what is like to live with no life inside, with emptiness in my soul. But then, by really knowing God, by realizing that my existence is for him, I realized that I am made to worship God, no wonder when I used to worship people and family, when I used to care so much about what people think of me, pleasing people didn’t satisfy my soul, I was enslaved to people’s opinions, but then…
I realized that as I worship God for who he is, he heals me from all the slavery from the things of this world, and I realize that because I was made by God and for God, when I worship Him, he truly satisfies my soul. He truly breaks off all the chains of pain, and he embraces me with his everlasting love.
This season, The Lord reminded me, through 2 Chronicles 2:15,22, that God will fight my battles as I worship him. There are things I am waiting on him to provide more revelation on the timing and on his provision. There are things I know he is healing and closing as I worship him. Instead of fighting my own battles, I let God fight all the battles. I’m having extended worship sessions with the One, who means and represents Love. He calls me to him. And when I spend time with God, I forget everything and he has showed me time and time after that he can satisfy the hungry soul.
So I apologize if I miss something or forget something. My schedule is still filled with house keeping, learning greek, rest, work, ministry, family commitments, and my VIP people. But!!! Knowing God is most important to me now. He is recharging me for what is to come in the future months, not completely sure what that is, but that’s ok.
God bless you my friends!
