This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Luke 15:20 (ESV)
Today, I want you to know about the power of God’s embrace. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, His embrace is always there.
Recently, my colleague Ben shared a passage from the Message Bible with me. It brought me immediate comfort and insight and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Here’s what your Heavenly Father is saying to you in Isaiah 43:2-5:
“2 When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end – 3 Because I am God, your personal God…I paid a huge price for you…4 That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you. 5 “So don’t be afraid: I’m with you.”
The first time I read this passage it lifted me so much, I felt like jumping as high as I could.
This scripture also reminds me about the prodigal son. In this parable, the son runs off from his father’s house and squanders his inheritance. When he runs out of money and things get bad for him, he decides to return home.
When he returns to his father’s home, his Father is eager to embrace him.
In fact, the scriptures say – “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20 (ESV)
Tune into the Blues to Blessings YouTube channel today as I share a time when I felt as though I was falling short and God reminded me that I was still in His embrace.
So today, God is embracing you.
