My pastor was ministering on relationships on Sunday. The first Scripture she referred to was about Cain and Abel, found in Genesis 4:7-8. As I turned to the Scripture in my Bible, this portion of those verses stood out to me, as if in neon lights:
If you do well, will you not be accepted?Wow!
Knowing I'm facing the church BBQ on Saturday; knowing what the internal dialog with myself has been, my wonderful Holy Spirit, knew I needed an encouraging word. As I read that Scripture, I heard in my heart:
Diane, You do well. You will be accepted.Wow...just what my insecure heart needed to hear. Just what I needed to silence the ungodly internal dialog going on.
A huge smile came over my face and a weight lifted off my shoulders in that very moment. That spirit of heaviness? Gone.
Thank You, Precious Holy Spirit, that You encouraged me through Your wonderful, Holy Word, and set my heart free. Thank You, my Beloved Companion. Thank You!
God is always speaking to us through His Word. I'd love to hear what encouraging Words has He spoken to your heart lately.
Won't you please share?
Because of Him and Unto Him,
