I had a vision. In the vision I was walking down the broad road of destruction, my hands tied behind my back. Behind me was the enemy—the father-of-lies with his negative, destructive beliefs of shame, rejection, abandonment, and condemnation. In front of me was a cliff from which he was going to push me…to my death. I prayed, “Perfect Father, save me from the broad road of destruction.” Then, I became aware of a band around my wrist. It read: “MY CHILD.” I glanced behind me at the enemy. “My God is coming for me. He will rescue me,” I whispered. Suddenly, I was snatched off the broad road of destruction to safety. But, who was that? There was someone else walking down this road with his hands tied behind his back…in my place. Then, I recognized Him—JESUS CHRIST, THE PERFECT FATHER’S ONLY SON.
HE HAD NO BEAUTY OR MAJESTY TO ATTRACT US TO HIM, NOTHING IN HIS APPEARANCE THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM. HE WAS DESPISED AND REJECTED BY MEN, A MAN OF SORROWS, AND FAMILIAR WITH SUFFERING. LIKE ONE FROM WHOM MEN HIDE THEIR FACES HE WAS DESPISED, AND WE ESTEEMED HIM NOT. BUT HE WAS PIERCED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS CRUSHED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE PUNISHMENT THAT BROUGHT US PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED
Precious Child, did you know that I, the PERFECT FATHER, am the One who established your worth? I am the One who settled your value. I put the price tag on you. On the price tag, I, the Everlasting Father, wrote…JESUS, My Son.
Jesus was pierced…for you. He was crushed…for you. I, the Father, did this…for you. That is how much you are worth…to Me.
Are you walking down the broad road of destruction? Do you want to be saved? Cry out to your Savior, Jesus Christ. He ransomed you from the father-of-lies and his oppressing beliefs of shame, rejection, abandonment, and condemnation. He came in your place…so you may be free.
PRAYER: Perfect Father, I praise You for deeming me worthy enough to send Your Son, Jesus Christ, in my place, so I may be set free from the broad road of destruction. Thank you that You came for me. Thank you that I may belong to You. Thank you, Jesus, for coming in my place.
Maintain an Awareness
This must be the hardest of all lessons to learn: to keep our eyes on the Eternal God during difficult circumstances, and trust that His everlasting arms are underneath us, holding us and keeping us safe.
