Light

abbaelohimimmanuel

From The Heart of Abba

I am your Father.
I am Elohim, who created you
I am Emmanuel, God with you 
I am walking with you and I will walk with you.
You may at times feel unseen and
like you do not matter.
Not so.
I am El Roi, your God who sees, cares and is with you in all times and for all time.

Yesterday at church. I think the reading was Isaiah 43 and the phrase from it was….forget the former things…I am not sure what the reading was but Isaiah 43:18 does say, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” Verse 19a says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”

I like the photo for the names of God. It is dark in places and at the top left there is one of those prism sort of rainbow things but on the bottom right there is LIGHT and the light causes the other parts. If there was no light the dark would just be black and kind of invisible. If there was no light that prism would not be there. Same for us. Same for me. Yes there are difficult things but the LIGHT is there and often others can see the Light of Christ shining in us even when we can’t.

Jesus Is:

Jesus is quote

I took this Sunrise on the way to baby sit this week. The sun is in some ways like the Son. We can see the effect of sunrise in the sky long before we see the actual sun itself.
Do you think life is like that? Sometimes during hard times we can’t “see” the hand of God ourselves but others can see the effect and so can we if we are watching and waiting and expecting with hope.
The moon is always round (even when it doesn’t look so)
and day ALWAYS follows night
and Joy ALWAYS follows (and often is entwined in) sorrow.

Elohim, Creator God LOVES You

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,
You ARE mine.
I do LOVE you with an everlasting, unending, unconditional love.

Lean on Me,
Crawl in My lap,
Look for Me and
Look to Me.

As you live in that manner,
You will have all you need,
In every next moment of life.

Remember I AM is present in EVERY MOMENT, past present and future.
And I AM has all you need in each and every moment.
No matter what.
I am Elohim, Creator and nothing is impossible for Me.
When the Psalmist cried out:
“CREATE in me a pure heart, Oh God, and renew a steadfast spirit”,
He was speaking from his heart to the heart of Elohim (Creator).

Beloved, when life is too much, that is what I invite you to do also.
Call out to Me, the One who created you and I WILL hear and answer..

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right and steadfast spirit within me.

1 John 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Just Trust God

just trust God

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,
There is no place you go,
That is devoid of My presence.

I will guide you.
I will lead you.
I will enable you.

Your task is to simply watch for Me,
To lean on Me,
To trust Me,
To trust that whatever you need, I have it,
To trust that My desire is to give you exactly what you need,
In any given moment.

Why?
Because I love you and I am your Abba.

Note: We all have hard things in our lives. Sometimes we have a season that is hard. But on the hard days AND the easy days, we have the LORD on our side. He is WITH us, loving us.

 

God Holds My Hand

From The Heart of Abba Today:
You know, many of us, probably all of us, have various trials and struggles. Sometimes we feel afraid. Often there is no valid basis for the fear but, we are afraid because we have never walked “this path” before.
Yesterday I took Kallen and Kason to the beach. Kallen is only 1 1/2 and he has never walked in the white soft powdery sand before. He has been to the beach, but not with this kind of sand. I could not push his stroller through that sand either. He wanted to come, he wanted to be with us, but he was scared. 


I sent his big brother (age barely 4) to “help him” and hold his hand.
That was all it took.


I was looking for a picture for a different verse but when I saw this one I was reminded of Isaiah 41:13. PERFECT illustration. 


Beloved, in that place of fear know this: Your Abba is walking with you, holding your hand. (smile)

You are growing in your love for and trust of Me…

When My people,
Who are called by My name,

You be set from habitual ways of,
Thinking, doing and reacting to circumstances of life.

“Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think, and you will know how pleased God is with his will for you and what God wants you to do.” Romans 12:2 NLT.

“But now, says the Lord, he who created you…who formed you:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are mine.”
Isaiah 43:1

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. Jer. 31:3

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
