Closer Than You Think
I’m as close as the mention of My name. Not even an inch can separate us. I blanket you with everything in Me and all I want is your love.
You don’t have to jump high hoops to reach My approval. I approved you the moment I made you, and I don’t make mistakes.
Here’s what I do with mistakes when you slip them in my hand: I turn them into dazzling diamonds—God-glorifying gems in the crown of your tested testimony.
The more you see how much I treasure our closeness, the more you’ll treasure Me and rise to the perfect place of peace I designed for you.
I’m in everything, even in the mist that rides the waves of your turbulent circumstances. When you don’t understand, know this: I delight in using the good and bad to show Myself strong in you and you in Me.
One of life’s mysteries is My Sovereignty. No need to fear when the Prince of Peace hovers over you with joy-songs and delights in you more than life itself.
Someday you’ll see Me in the fullness of My bigness. Until then, I invite you to see today’s trial as an opportunity to grow your vision and see Me as your closest, most dependable friend.
I don’t want anything to come between us and I’ll fight for you all the way, moving heaven and earth to shape you holy and use you mightily.
You don’t need to outgrow me like a security blanket. Depend on me like a little child and let me weave Myself into the fabric of your life until you’re like Me, stitch by stitch, hemmed in fully, safe and wild.
