Did you know that God sees you through the lens of the cross?

It doesn't matter that you are not perfect. It doesn't matter that you may mess up badly at times. What matters is that you have a heart surrendered to God. It is of most importance that you completely understand that man on his own can never be perfect enough to come into God's presence, but when you surrender your heart to God and realize that the blood of Jesus that He shed on the cross, covers all your messes and my messes, our sin, that is when God spins around under violent emotion, with such joy. This is when God will rejoice over you with singing. A surrendered heart, seeking the presence of God with a passion for Him, evokes much joy.

The Lord your God is with you He is mighty to save.

God is all-powerful. God is the creator of the heavens and the earth. He is the almighty God and He saves His people once we have put our trust in Him. God has restored us to eternal life through His Son, Jesus.

According to Psalm 91, God is with us in our daily lives. He is there with us through the highs and the lows of all that comes our way. We are promised God's protection when we are hidden in Him. God is the Powerful One who wins our battles. He is our protector and defender and as such, He is our victorious warrior. He is our triumphant Savior, who is mighty to save.

Do you ever wonder how much God loves you? When you have times of doubt, remember Zephaniah 3:17. God takes delight in us, and His love quiets us. It is a beautiful gift. We can't earn it. All we truly must do is to accept God's gift of love, and when we do, He rejoices over us with singing!

Father, help me to fully receive all that You have for me, all that You died to do in me, and help me to know all that You desire for me to know. May my heartbeat wildly for You, Jesus, until You are my only true heart’s desire.
