On my knees on the red carpet, the one with the play dough ground in.
“I’ll be your hero, mom,” he had told me.
The girls had smeared blue play dough into the carpet and I had fussed and he had found a solution. He took the red play dough and smeared in on top, covered up the blue.
I had laughed and hugged his sweet body close and decided to leave the play dough just like that, hero style.
Now on my knees, I was face to face with that play dough as I prayed the verses for the very first time.
I’ve never sensed a greater “Yes!” from the heavens as that day when I prayed those scriptures. I knew the affirmation of God.
And when I returned to the states and walked the ladies bible study group through the verses, we all felt the “YES!” It was a powerful time, a sweet time, a glimpse of heaven.
We had all stilled our hearts and closed our eyes and imagined the scene, the birthplace of God’s love for us:
There’s God in Heaven. Before the foundation of the world.
Before the earth existed and before the first man was created and before there was a twinkling in the skies.
And He’s there, pacing among the men and women, boys and girls, the thoughts and plans of His heart before yet one of them was.
He’s walking back and forth, to and fro. Then He reaches you.
And He stretches out His hand.
He touches and He begins to speak…
“I bestow upon you LIFE! I grant you full freedom and liberty in My Son Jesus Christ. I speak over your life victory, fullness, and give you the title “overcomer.”“To you, I give the keys to the kingdom of heaven. “I decree that no weapon formed against you will prosper. “I give you full access to the throne of grace. “I call you by a new name. I grant you forgiveness. I call you holy. “You are set apart, precious, special. “I delight over you. “You are sealed and protected forever. “Greater is the One who is in you than he who is in the world. “I grant you everything you need to live godly in Christ Jesus. “I seal you with My Spirit, who will spring up in you like wells of living water and produce love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, and self control. “You are My Beloved. Nothing will ever seperate you from My love. “I am Yours and you are Mine. Forever.”
And the tears flow and the hearts are soft and we feel the presence of Love God.
As I did that morning on play dough carpet.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed ~ eulogeo ~ us with every spiritual blessing in the HEAVENLY PLACES in Christ, just as He chose us in Him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD…” Ephesians 1:3
