Unleash Your Inner Warrior
My dear warrior,
Recently, I was talking to God about how risky love and relationships are, and how some people put up walls out of fear of getting hurt, and to try to keep from getting burned again. God’s reply to me was “Love is risky. But Christ thought you were worth the risk when He gave His life for you. He risked you never saying ‘yes’ to Him.”
That statement sent me reeling. I was so overwhelmed by Him in that moment. I was overwhelmed by Love. What a magnificent God we live for! I’ve known many people (myself included) who decided to ‘guard their heart’ by putting up walls so they wouldn't risk getting hurt anymore. This is what is called an “inner vow." Beloved, that is not what it means to guard your heart, and it isn’t biblical. In fact, it is a tactic of the enemy.
My dear warrior,
You are wonderful. I am not saying that to flatter you or compliment you. I am simply stating the fact of who you are in Christ. You are wonderful because God says you are. Whatever Jesus says about Himself is also true of you. Graham Cooke says, “If Jesus Christ is in you, and one of His names is Wonderful, what does that make you? It makes you better than you imagine!” It makes you wonderful. God wants you to come before the throne in confidence, knowing that He says you are wonderful, that He has adopted you into His holy, royal family. You are a son or daughter of God with a brilliant inheritance. He wants to lavish love on you, to give you the desires of your heart, and to lavish gifts on you because His love for you is extravagant.
