The Lord has been doing such a healing in my heart lately. He continues to go deeper, healing areas I didn’t even know were still there.
Three words have been key in this healing. They have been muddling around in my heart and mind for weeks. I wholeheartedly believe that if we really, really had a grasp these three words, and understood the meaning behind them to our very cores . . . the truth of these words literally demolish many, if not all, of the fundamental lies of the enemy.
Do you want to know what they are?
Chosen . . . Holy . . . Loved
Knowing that I have been chosen before the foundation of time by my Father tears down the lies of rejection. Understanding that I am chosen, I mean really understanding, is healing balm over every wound of rejection over the years.
Grasping the fact that I have been ‘set apart’ and am holy and blameless before Him shuts the mouth of the accuser of the brethren, Satan. When I really grasp this concept his lies of my unworthiness and wretchedness meet with a deaf ear.
Nothing has been more clear to me in the past year that THE biggest need of all human beings is to be loved. To know that we are loved and cherished. I have seen the love of God heal and deliver. I have seen the love of God cast out fear. Love heals. We try to fill up this need for love with many things. Our souls long for love, acceptance, to be cherished. The love of a good man is wonderful. The love of our children blesses our hearts. But nothing, NOTHING will ever fill our need to be loved, but the love of our Father through His Son, Jesus Christ.
So, Chosen, Holy, Loved.
See the significance of three little words with huge meanings?
Don’t you just love it??!! I adore it.
Be forewarned, if you are anything like me, you might just want one of everything she makes! For those of you who loved Ann’s book, One Thousand Gifts, you might love this necklace, as I did. I almost bought it, but I am glad I waited, this is the one my Father wanted for me!
Lora worked with me to make this necklace just how I wanted it. I told her what I was thinking and she made it happen and I had it in my anxious hands in a week!
Lord willing, I hope to expound on how deeply these three words have affected me. The Lord also has brought a book across my path that is ministering these truths to me. I haven’t finished it yet, when I do, I will post a review of it.
You, my sister, have been chosen by the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. He picked you!! He made you holy and blameless before Him. He looks at you through the blood of Christ. All your shame and unworthiness is gone as far as He is concerned. And, sister, you are dearly loved with an everlasting love. Let these words sink in and heal. You are Chosen, Holy and Loved!
