He Reached Down From Heaven!

This is for those who’ve walked a long road of heartbreak, sickness, insecurity, or addiction. For those who’ve gone too long without seeing the sun. For those who’ve lost heart and hope because the battle rages on. This blessing is for you: May you rest right here, in this place, and see Jesus’ provision here. May our mighty God roll up His sleeves, reach down from on high, and rescue YOU because He delights in you – He really does. May God break through in this very place and breathe fresh life into your soul. May your valley of weeping fill to the brim with pools of blessing (Ps.84:6). May Jesus lift your chin so you can look to Him and be RADIANT with no shred of shame on you (Ps.34:5). May Jesus restore your soul in a way that surprises and blesses you. And from one traveler to another: I DO believe and KNOW that God cares about our battle, intervenes in ways we cannot see, and will come through for us in ways that only He can. May you hang on and hang in there until then. We’re in this together.

Psalm 18:16-19 NLT ~ He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress, but the Lord supported me. He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.
