Psalm 119:105-112 The Message (MSG)
105-112 By your words I can see where I’m going;
they throw a beam of light on my dark path.
I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back
from living by your righteous order.
Everything’s falling apart on me, God;
put me together again with your Word.
Festoon me with your finest sayings, God;
teach me your holy rules.
My life is as close as my own hands,
but I don’t forget what you have revealed.
The wicked do their best to throw me off track,
but I don’t swerve an inch from your course.
I inherited your book on living; it’s mine forever—
what a gift! And how happy it makes me!
I concentrate on doing exactly what you say—
I always have and always will.
Feeling any better now that you read through those 90 scriptures of who you are to God? I know at first when someone proposed to me that I was good enough for God I laughed only because I knew how broken I really was on the inside. Most could not tell from the outside that I did not have it all together. Side note: I still don’t have it all together. I always dressed nice, not a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl, and my makeup was always done and my hair styled. I never left the house unfinished, on the outside.
For years I struggled with not being good enough, can’t do anything right and why does anybody even want me? I was dealing with rejection and did not even know it. Being a product of adoption, this played a HUGE role in my own identity. If nobody wanted me in the first place why did God even allow me to be born? If I wasn’t good enough for my first family, what good would I be to my new family?
UNWANTED. UNLOVED. UNWORTHY.
Thank goodness God came in like a mighty rushing wind and UNdid my flood of negativity. He changed my Unwanted to WANTED. He converted my UNloved to LOVED. He exchanged my UNworthy to WORTHY.
Because of the great love of a Father in heaven who loves me unconditionally even when I mess up and make a disaster of something, I am who I am today. Now I can read through those verses and accept what I had originally UNaccepted. How did this happen? Well I assure it was not overnight. The first step was trusting God. Then I had to read the Bible verses and believe them as truth. This is called renewing your mind. Through those verses MANY aspects of wrong thinking were UNdone in His presence. He renewed my mind and taught me what love really was.
Are you ready to be UNdone? It’s not often a pretty process and it might mess you up on the outside a little as you go through it but once the brokenness on the inside is healed then the outside will no longer be a cover up for the hurt but a true representation of your identity. You will be glowing from the inside out and your life with be a living testimony to how good our God really is.
Dear God, I pray for my friend who is reading this right now. I ask Lord that You would reveal Yourself to them in such a powerful way there will be no fear in trusting You. I pray the healing will come quickly and they will begin to feel loved, wanted and worthy in Your presence. Thank You Lord for loving them and accepting them just as they are, your beloved child.
In Jesus Name. AMEN
