Today we were at the Southern Steps, sitting at the very steps where Jesus preached and Peter lead people to salvation.
To have over 300 people in one accord in praise and worship was awesome. Pastor Prince preached and I received. He preached grace and that I am healed. My past does not dictate who I am. Jesus loved me so much that He died for me and on the cross, took EVERYTHING. For that very moment He bore EVERYTHING.
Like when Abraham was going to sacrifice his son, the ram was the sacrifice. His horns were stuck and when he pulled it out, it had a thorn of crown as Jesus did.
In my spirit God told me, "Look Jennifer, how much more do I need to do to make you understand your free? I brought you to the very steps where I preached. This is how much I love you. You are free from the past, free from sickness, free from lack, free from EVERYTHING. When are you going to receive it? How much more do I need to do?" It was like my eyes were finally open and I received it.
After I read that entry, I began to read my bible. The Lord brought me to Jeremiah 31. Tears filled my eyes as I began to read. Gods grace is sufficient for EVERYTHING. He reminded me of how much He loves me and what he delivered me from.
There was a time I was so hurt, broken and lost, that I felt no connection to God. I couldn't hear or feel him. It was like hell on earth for me. My spirit was shattered. Yet, through it all, God still showed me grace. He still redeemed me! He reached down into that pit and pulled me high, setting my feet on the rock. He washed me white as snow and loved me.
Jeremiah 31 is His love story to me about His never ending love, grace and mercy.
Jeremiah 31: 2 This is what the Lord says:
“The people who survive the sword (devices, tricks of satan)
will find favor in the wilderness (when your lost);
I will come to give rest to Israel (Jennifer).”
3 The Lord appeared to us in the past,[a] saying:
“I have loved you (Jennifer) with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. (grace)
4 I will build you (jennifer) up again,- redemption
and you, Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt.
Again you will take up your timbrels
and go out to dance with the joyful. -God restores my praise
What God did for me, He will do for you. Let Him speak His love story for you, over you...JustFood4Thought
