Dear Daughter of Almighty God

New creation

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

We are a new creation, we have been born again, and it is like we have no past. A baby has done no wrong it has a fresh start and so do we. We have the new ahead of us.

Our futures our in Christ’s hands we can trust were He is taking us. By faith we will have the victory. We are new creations in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5

Dear Daughter of Almighty God

Image

Genesis 1:27 (ESV)

27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

God created us in His own image yet we put ourselves down complain about this and that, but we have been created in God’s own image.

Yes sin has messed us up a bit but God knew the beginning from the end. God knew sin would mess things up which is why He has given us His Words. As we read the Word of God it changes us from the inside out. As our spirit changes it changes the outside too and God starts to shine through.

Reading the Word gives us a new image inside and the outside has to come in line with the Word of God because God’s Word is unchangeable. As we read the Word of God our imaginations need to get to work and build a picture of all that God sees in us, also to build the picture of how God sees us.

God sees us through Jesus and Jesus is perfect in every way. So when we get things wrong, mess things up or just get out of step with God let’s run to God and get forgiveness so once again we are stood behind Jesus and all that He is.

Think on Jesus and become like Him.

Psalm 136

Dear Daughter of Almighty God

God’s garden

Isaiah 58:11 (ESV)

11 And the Lord will guide you continually
and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters do not fail.

What a promise from God. We will be guided continually, satisfied in scorched places, our bones will be strong, well watered and those waters will not fail.

Have you looked at a well watered garden, it looks green and lush. The flowers are blooming in beautiful colours. The plants are strong and healthy reaching for the sky. This is how life can be in Jesus. Plants have enemies and a good gardener knows how to deal with these. The gardener knows how to protect the plants and how to sort them out if the enemy gets through. God is the best gardener there is, He designed us He knows how we work, how we are made.

A spring of water is constantly flowing so it is difficult for a blockage to develop. A spring of water waters that which is growing around it, refreshing the ground. You can drink from a spring and be refreshed.

Awesome, our lives can be God’s garden and people will see His glory in our lives. We can help refresh those around us. All under God’s guidance.

A well watered garden that is satisfied, this is who we can be.

Psalm 136

Dear Daughter of Almighty God

God formed you

Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

None of us are a mistake God knew before the beginning of time just when we would be born, who we would be born to and the plans He has for each and every one of us.

God knows our hearts desires He put them there. God knows how we think and act, we are not a surprise to Him and we cannot surprise Him with any of our words actions or deeds.

If we will allow God to He will hold us in His hands directing us and guiding us through every step that we take every move that we make.

We are daughters of the living God we can stand tall and strong knowing that with God all things are possible.

Your Loving sister Amanda.
