Who can find you?

July 6, 2015

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.” Matthew 13:45-46

When someone abuses you, they don’t see what God sees in you. When someone disrespects you, they don’t see what God sees in you. And to be truthful, if you allow the abuse and the disrespect, you don’t see what God sees in you. The Bible says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies” (see Proverbs 31:10). This Scripture is not merely focusing on the woman, but on the kind of man it takes to find this kind of woman. It takes a certain kind of guy to find you, see you and love you. You’re asking, “Why won’t he love me?” Well, he’s not looking for a pearl, he’s looking for a good time. When you’re desperate to be loved or afraid to be alone, this will only attract heartbreak.

Receive God’s love. Lose yourself in Him. Let God show you who you are in Christ. Let the treasure within you enrich you. When you do this, you won’t settle for a guy that knows nothing about pearls, but you’ll wait on the one that recognizes a jewel when they see it and who knows how to treat you.

Prayer: Father God, I thank You for speaking directly to my heart. I receive Your love and the man You have for me. Show me who I am in You. Help me see myself the way You see me. I don’t want to be found by just anyone. Let Your man, Your son, find me and let me add value to his life and bless him. In Jesus name, Amen.

Divine order brings divine peace.

July 5, 2015

“Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” Psalm 119:165

Divine order brings divine peace into your life. What is divine order? It is when everything is put in it’s rightful place: God, you, and your adversary. Divine order takes place…

1. When God is sitting on the throne of your heart.

Picture your heart has a throne. Who is sitting there? Is it God, you, or something else? Anytime we feel we know better than God, and can do a better job than He can, we are attempting to sit on the throne of our hearts. It’s time to get up and let God sit there (see Proverbs 31:30).

2. When you acknowledge you are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

The enemy works overtime to get you to doubt who you are in Christ and who God is in you. He accuses you 24/7 of every wrong you’ve ever done to get you from your position in Christ. Receive the truth that you belong to God and are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. This places you in a seat of spiritual authority (see Ephesians 2:6).

3. When the enemy is put in his place as being under your feet.

You are not trying to defeat the devil, he was defeated over 2,000 years ago when Jesus died, was buried and raised to life again. When the enemy is attacking your life, you must put him back in his place under your feet (see Luke 10:19).

When these three are in place, you will have supernatural peace and rest for your soul.

Prayer: Father God, I thank You for teaching me about divine order. Take your rightful place on the throne of my heart. I acknowledge that I am seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, and I command the enemy to get under my feet. I receive who I am in You Lord and I thank You for bringing divine peace into my life, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
