" Be Mine..." I hear the whisper over and over again. "Will you belong to me?"
Over the last two weeks we have discussed belonging to the Lord and the heart. If you have missed those, links are provided at the bottom of this post. This week I'd like to talk about saying "Yes"....
As the Lord whispers, " Be Mine..." do we fully embrace what He is offering us? Do we put Him before the world daily? Let Him lead us daily? Say "yes" daily to belonging to Him?
Do we say "yes" and then pull back that answer? Do we say "yes" when times are easy, and following Him has no challenges? Do we say "yes" and then turn away? Do we say "yes" and place Him on the back shelf until we need Him again?
It is so important to say "Yes" not just today. But everyday. Over and over again.
When the days are rough, say yes!
When life is going smoothly and beautifully, say yes!
When there is no understanding why things happen, say yes!
When dreams come true and when they don't, say yes!
When the direction of life is unknown or when doors are opened, say yes!
We need to say yes from the depths of our hearts-with our emotions, our thoughts and our wills. To belong to Him with the entirety of our hearts in all circumstances.
And when we stumble? We stand back up again, in perserverance, and say yes. We allow the well of our hearts to be deepened with the Lord's love and healing, with His strength and comfort. We stand up and say yes again, and His peace overflows our hearts and our souls beyond our understanding. Why? Because there is no other who can fill that well, such as the Lord!
And when we say "yes", let us also say "You are mine." For in belonging to Him, He dwells in us and becomes ours.
Isiah 41:10 says, " So do not fear, for I am with you; Do not be dismayed, for I am your God." (Bolding mine)
And John 14:23 says, "Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."
I am His, And He is mine.
Will you say "yes" today to belong to Him? To be His? To embrace Him as yours?
Will you say yes tomorrow and the next day too?
Each day deepen the well. Fill it with the echo of daily affirmations of your belonging to Him. Let it overflow, in a multitude of waves that spill over the edge of the well with whispers of "you are mine, Lord". And let the love of our faithful Father wash over you.
