You've kept track of my every toss and turn through the sleepless nights, each tear entered in your ledger, each ache written in your book.
Psalms 56:8 (MSG)
Books are a favorite of mine, I love to hold them, look at them, and read them. I am currently reading the Book of Romans in the Bible, and for other books, I'm reading Victoria the Queen, Pure Joy, Unlocking the Destinies of Heaven, The Grain Brain, Swindoll's Living Insights on John, The Deborah Annointing, and the Ketogenic Bible.
I love going to the book of Romans in my Bible and being reminded that life is not about my behaivor; it's about my God's saving grace. It is because of His amazing gift to His children, that we are able to live in freedom. I've been studying about the Books in heaven, God has books there about each of us. He has diligently written my story, and to Him it is beautiful. Have you ever thought about this? If so, have you wondered how to access the book of your life?
When I was a child, I imagined God erasing my name from His Book of Life. It was a prominent picture in my mind, and it was discouraging to me to believe the lie that if I made a mistake, God would reject me. It has taken some diligent thought and persistent reading to overide that lie with truth.
Queen Victoria became queen of England at the young age of 18. She reigned for 63 years. She knew her place as royalty, and she stood up against many false beliefs to support truth. She was strong and powerful. Her role had been laid out for, and she was determined to live it well. We, as children of God, are like Victoria. We are royals with the blood of the King of Kings pulsing through our veins. We have a place in His Throne room, and we have power and authority in His name. So, are you believing it and grasping it? Are you walking in royality today? Are you asking for insight into the Book that is so carefully written about you and speaking that over your life?
I'm going to keep reading, and practice believing, and take hold of all He has said!
