Let us be reminded that every word or phrase written in the bible has either a redemptive or blessed (or both) relevance to our lives. God’s Word has prophetic significance and never returns void.
The breastplate worn by the High Priests of Israel had the names of the twelve tribes of Israel written on each of the twelve precious stones. This is how precious each of the twelve tribes are to Elohim God.
Similarly this is a revelation that the name of every child of God who is heir to the promises of the house of Israel through Christ Yeshua (the once and for all sacrificial Lamb and High Priest) is known and precious to Elohim God.
Scripture says we are treasures in earthen vessels (2 Corinth 4:7). Elohim God’s people are a crown of glory and a royal diadem in His hand (Isaiah 62).
El Shaddai, one of the names of God means that He is our sufficiency but is also expressed as “the many breasted God”. As a mother He nurtures those who are close to his heart because they are His children.
As precious ones to God, we are as it were grafted onto His chest or heart. He cares about that which concerns us and works to perfect it (Psalm 138:8).
Being precious to God is being fabulous in God’s sight! What more can I say?
Sometimes we may be going through difficulties and not know where to turn. Let us be reminded that we have a God who is “our refuge & strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psa.46:1). He also said in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5).
He is the same God who miraculously prevented Daniel and his friends from burning in the furnace (Daniel 6) and who answered the prayer of the saints on behalf of Peter so that he was miraculously released from prison (Acts 12). He is also the same God who came to earth as Christ through a miraculous birth, so that the inheritance of his people Israel would be extended to anyone who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. If Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Saviour it is not too late, there is a miraculous life awaiting you!
He is also the God who never forgets your faithfulness to Him; many have toiled and laboured and some times wonder when they will either be healed from a particular sickness or receive answers to certain prayers which would change your situation for the better.
In fact some of you have been waiting on God through prayer for the fulfilment of prophecies spoken over your lives. “When LORD! when” is your desperate cry! But God is saying there are things that have to take place first and as you stay close to Him, He will give you understanding. Patience and perseverance in the place of worship regardless of the circumstance is what God is calling us all to.
Be encouraged today! In Christ a miraculous life is guaranteed!
In Him :
In the holy place
we seek His face,
there He appears to
wipe away our tears.
In our hearts
we call His name,
there flows His fountain
that heals our pain.
no more tears,
no more pain.
