I live in a high and holy place,
but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
and to revive the heart of the contrite.
I will not accuse them forever,
nor will I always be angry.
Thus says God, the High and Lofty One, the Eternal Throne, whose name is “The Holy One” to you today; this is His word for you today and over all your life.
It may be that God has put us through a lot and we have had to walk through many dark valleys. We almost couldn’t stand it, and we almost died. But He does not want to accuse or be angry with us forever. HE is the God who has mercy on us! Our guilt is forgiven and sunk in the sea; even God, the Holy One wants to forget it. There is no more reason for Him to be angry with us!
Now He comes, the Almighty God, He comes as the compassionate man Jesus, and He comforts us. He raises us up again and whispers in our ears: “My beloved child! Stand up! Raise your head! Make your knees and hands strong again for prayer! For today is the time of grace, today there is no judgment, but grace and mercy. Today I will heal your wounds and restore you. From today you will recover until you have full strength.”
Yes, this is God’s plan with us, a plan of forgiveness, love and undeserved grace. HE loves His children and wants to heal and deliver them from everything that afflicts them!
For this He needs our cooperation. One should serve the other, each with his gifts. We ourselves should listen to Him and do what He tells us. When He says: “Do not be afraid!” – then we want to go forward, even if it is difficult. We don’t want to take ourselves seriously, because God takes care of us. We want to get out of our wrong thinking and feelings into divine thinking and divine feelings! Joy, peace, kindness and mercy should rule us. Positive thinking and talking about each other and ourselves should be normal. Let us ignore the enemy’s whispers that we are hopeless. Let us destroy these bulwarks in our heads! And when they come back, let us laugh at them, because we know the truth: God, our Father, loves us infinitely!
Hallelujah, You are God, the Holy, the Strong, the Eternal, and You are our Father who loves us! How good it is to find refuge, comfort and mercy under Your wings! How good it is to listen to You when You encourage us! Yes, Your thoughts and plans for me are always good! Thank You!!!
