Not Unredeemed

… living the beautiful tension between what is, and what will be …

Look – 31 Days of Truth {Day 20}

Every day I ask the Lord for things He has already given me. Why? I’m not sure yet completely, other than I don’t fully understand all that He is.

We ask for His presence – does He not live in us? And promise to be with us?

We ask for His blessing surrounded by 4 walls, running water and people who love us.

We ask for peace and He has given Himself to us already.

We ask Him to fight for us – isn’t He the king we are fighting for?

We ask Him to protect the work He is doing in us – He tells us He is faithful to complete what He has started.

Seems like all I could see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this gonna last
Then You look at this prisoner and say to me “son
Stop fighting a fight it’s already been won”

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I’m not who I used to be
I am redeemed, I’m redeemed

Look. Stop asking. Look around and see what He has already done. I too often fight a fight that has already been won. Lets start

looking to see His presence rather than asking for it,

 look to see His blessing around us,

look to recognize the peace He has waiting for us to grab onto,

look at who wins the battle and never leaves our side,

look to His faithfulness when we are faithless.

Join me in looking at what we already have. Look at Him.

Today’s Tidbit of Truth: We waste so much time fighting for what has already been won, what could He do with us if we looked and saw all that was ours?
