Do you sometimes look around and find your circumstances bland and tasteless? Or worse, do you sometimes find yourself deep in darkness, with evil all around? When you find yourself discouraged and dismayed by your environment, take a deep breath and try to see yourself from God’s holy perspective. If you were to rise above your circumstances, quickly you would see that your circumstances are neither tasteless nor dark . . . because God placed you there!
Jesus tells his disciples that we are the salt of the earth! We are the light of the world! (Matthew 5:13-16). Our job is to be image bearers of the God most high, an impossible task made possible because the Holy Spirit resides in us. We are never alone!
Dear Heavenly Father, bless my friend today with the privilege of seeing herself in your eyes, a mighty warrior, an inheritor of Heaven. Remind her of who you are and who she is in you, and remind her that she may have been created to shine in just such a time as this.
In His Name,
Esther 4:14: “. . . Who knows? It’s possible that you became queen for a time just like this.”
