‘NEITHER THIS MAN NOR HIS PARENTS SINNED,’ SAID JESUS, ‘BUT THIS HAPPENED SO THAT THE WORK OF GOD MIGHT BE DISPLAYED IN HIS LIFE’
Beautiful One, know that I, the Father of the Heavenly Lights, want you to be healed from the damaging childhood incidents in your life that caused you to feel condemned, shamed, abandoned, and rejected. I want to fill you with My good and perfect Gifts from above.
But you need to take your focus off the childhood incidents that caused you to feel so guilty and condemned, even now, and turn your focus to My Son, Jesus. It is not what you did, that matters, but what Jesus did for you, for I, the Perfect Father, did not send My Son into the world to condemn you, but to save you. Therefore, allow My saving work to be displayed in your life, for I satisfy the thirsty and fill the hungry with good things, if you let Me.
FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. FOR GOD DID NOT SEND HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD, BUT TO SAVE THE WORLD THROUGH HIM
In the same way, Child, take your focus off your parents or other persons of authority who caused you harm, during your childhood. It is not about what they did or did not do that matters. It is about whether you are willing to submit the abandonment, shame, rejection, and condemnation that resulted from the father-of-lies to My Son, Jesus, so My saving work might be displayed in your life.
FOR HE SATISFIES THE THIRSTY AND FILLS THE HUNGRY WITH GOOD THINGS
I bless you today to allow the saving work of God to be displayed in your life: His Light in your darkness…His Hope in your hopelessness…His Wisdom in your confusion…His Righteousness in your sinfulness…His Wholeness in your brokenness…His Power in your weakness…His Peace in your anxiety…His Comfort in your sorrow…His Grace in your guilt.
How might you apply “it is not what YOU did that matters, but what JESUS did for you”?
How might you apply “it is not what THEY did, that matters, but what JESUS did for you”?
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, how comforted I am that it is not about what I did or did not do, and it is not about what they did or did not do. It is all about what You DID for me. Thank you that You came to save me.
Maintain an Awareness
So, yes, the deepest urge in human nature seems to be the desire to be important–to matter. But, it is not the PRINCIPLE of wanting to be important that is wrong; instead, it is the way we adapt or the means we adopt to meet this most urgent desire of our hearts.
