Heirs

Just happy that God loves me, looks after me, guides me, gives me peace, surrounds me with His presence and His word has never failed me even when I have failed Him. I stand in awe of His grace, conviction, majesty and power. I stand amazed knowing that He knows me better than I know myself. I look at His creation and at times I am overcome by the beauty of it all and to think He just SPOKE and it began! Even the way God sees time is so much different than the way we see it.....He actually looks at time backwards for He has “seen all of our days.” He’s seen the rough days, the good days......days we have ran from Him and days we have run to Him. He has seen the “end” and it’s good to know that “WE WIN.” He never promised that things would always be easy.....BUT He has promised that we can lean on Him and take Him at His word. He has promised that He wouldn’t leave us or forsake us.....He has promised to be a shield and defense.....a comforter, a healer, a deliverer and He has declared that HIS name is a strong tower that the righteous can run into and they will be safe. He has promised to overshadow us with His wings and place His angels around us. He has promised to fight for us. He has promised that He loves us and He calls us “Sons and Daughters.” He has promised that we have become “joint heirs with Jesus”.....what does that mean?.....well the meaning of an “heir” is this: “one who receives property from an ancestor : one who is entitled to inherit property that was his father's sole heir. One who inherits or is entitled to benefits of the throne. One who is considered royalty and part of a kingdom.” I stand today so underserving and yet He gives everything so freely!
