This song has been resonating in my spirit since last night:
Abba, I belong to You
You are more real than the ground I stand on
You are more real than the wind in my lungs
Your thoughts define me, you’re inside me, you’re my reality
You are closer than the skin on my bones
You are closer than the song on my tongue
ABBA I belong to You
You came running down my prodigal road
You came running with a ring and a robe
Grace is the collision on the way back home
with the arms of the Father who won’t let go
ABBA I belong to YOU
…..words by Jonathan & Melissa Hesler
It’s a wonderful experience to realize God, Abba is my personal Father, at least as much as my earthly mind can allow. He chases after me and comforts me. He tells me I’m His and directs my path. My very existence is because of Him. My reason for being and who I am is ALL due to Him. The One who encourages me when I feel I can’t go on or facing new challenges on this journey called Christian living. No matter what weapon forms, He promises it will not prosper. He is always by my side. Even the things I cause due to disobedience or just not seeking Him completely, He turns it around for my good or gives me a way out.
No amount of earthly interaction can trump the Father’s love, wisdom and care He provides to me. So I say, ABBA I belong to YOU!! What is man or his opinion when I’m the daughter of The King…ABBA, I BELONG TO YOU!!
My prayer is that we realize who we belong to, our benefits of that relationship and what He says about His sons and daughters. I pray we allow His Word to resonate louder than any other words in our hearts and minds…filling us up MORE with His Spirit.
