“I woke up every day, tired of the way I felt. Not having control of your physical body is tough…it takes a toll on you mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. I didn’t have the energy to verbally communicate with God. I didn’t want to speak. I didn’t feel like I had anything to say, that wasn’t already said. So…I just looked up to the heavens and said…father, you know my heart, I realize it…even when we’re apart. I see your hand, shifting the world to work in my favour. Father, you are the heart..no other place, I’d rather be than right here. Right in your arms. Wrapped in your grace. Lord, you are all I need. Sometimes you don’t need to have the perfect words to communicate. God knows your heart, and He’s all you need.”Lumina
When listening to this song you can’t help but get up and dance. Along with the amazing beat, the song is about how faithful God is even though we have times where we feel we are apart from Him. Even though we have drifted away from Him, he is already waiting with arms wide open for us to return home just like the parable of the prodigal son.
We might think we are far off the tracks but there is nothing He can’t forgive.
God knows our hearts and when we say He works things in our favour it does not always line up with our idea of what favour looks like. God has a plan for those who love Him and obey Him. He takes care of us. So when it comes to favour, God really has already done so much for us in Christ Alone.
We have favour because we have been set free from sin because He chose to die on the cross for our sins and through this, we have received eternal life. Because the wages of sin is death but the free gift in Christ Jesus is eternal life (Romans 6:23)
All I need and All you need is Jesus. So when we die one day and we are resurrected, Christ should be our first and foremost reward. It is not about getting things out of Him but it is about getting Him.
Though we may not feel like we receive favour in this lifetime and feel like all we get is struggle, we need to remember the struggles He faced for us and remember the reward we have in Him.
