Oh, Tuesday DIVAs! I am so humbled by our Lord! That in His mercy He would assemble us before His throne of grace and allow us to make our request known. Can you fathom it? That He would call our special group of women to His presence and allow us the priveledge of laying our hearts before Him to receive the ministry we each need. What grace! What mercy! Let’s not hold back a thing before the One who is completely safe. Run princess to the open arms of your King! He has been awaiting your arrival.
If you are familiar with the book of Esther, you will recall that Haman made an edict declaring all the Jews would be put to death because of his rage toward Mordecai. Seeking deliverance, Mordecai took to the streets wearing sackcloth and wailing loudly.
While searching the bible I found the word “sackcloth” was commonly paired with two things (1) feeling the pain and allowing God to minister to it and (2) humility.
When our heart has been injured, our fleshly nature wants to respond by building a wall around it to protect it from further injury. What if, instead, we covered our hearts with sackcloth? Would you be willing? If we adorn our hearts with sackcloth we must (1) acknowledge the pain (instead of constructing a wall and disregarding it) and let the Lord tend to it and (2) be humble and obedient to His direction. Would we be courageous enough to step out from behind our hand-built walls, adorn our hearts with sackcloth and let the King of Glory come in? Let’s fulfill the “hope of our calling” and let God do the miraculous in us! When we allow Him access to our hearts we become something, in our own strength, we could never be.
Ephesians 5:19-21…speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music from your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of Christ. Amen and Amen!
Request: If you are a Tuesday DIVA please make a comment or a word of praise to our Lord so we know you are out there! How does this apply to your circumstance? What does it mean to you? Thank you!
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit,
