Frustrations, issues, pressures and even inconsequential happenings we think are not harmful, pick, prod, attack, and even subtly chip away at us on a daily basis. Sometimes we are not even aware of their presences, let alone their effects they have on us. However, our King Shepherd is aware and He actively addresses, heals and nourishes each and every need, each and every wound, and each and every dent we experience while we remain clinging only to Him. It is His actively dwelling presence which enables us to call out to Him as our heads hit our pillows each night to not only forgive ourselves, but others who may have unknowingly, and knowingly, wounded us. And as we awaken for each new day, it is by His Hand that all things are healed and made right within our rugged journeys; it is by His Ear that we become aware of the limitless depth of love Abba uniquely has for each of us, individually; it is by His Mouth that Truth strips, eradicates, rebuilds and nourishes each and every aspect of ourselves, and even our physical lives; it is by His strength that our perseverance is ignited for His victory; it is by His Eyes that we actively see Hope as they lovingly gaze upon our Abba, the Creator of All things; it is by His Arms that allows us to be actively surrounded in His Peace; it is by His Fingers that we are able to reach out and minister to others; it is by His Legs that we are able to have the strength to stand within the realms of adversity; it is by His Feet that we are able to rejoicingly dance, despite what we may be called to endure in the flesh. It is by His Heart that fortifies us to actively believe, embrace and receive Abba’s Word over fact and what may wrongly appear to be true in the flesh; and it is our full reliance on King Jesus that enables us to be established as overcomers. It is only because of King Jesus that we are able to actively breathe-in, digest and overflow with Abba’s goodness, for no one is good but God, our Abba, Who is passionately calling us to become fully dependent upon Him, intimately ensuring that it is His Breath, the Holy Spirit, Who actively sustains us. Yes, He is that protective of us, praise King Jesus – ‘For I know the thoughts I think towards you, saith Yahweh, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.’ (Jeremiah 29:11)
