God does not withhold his best from us. He made this abundantly clear when he gave us Jesus. Derived from the Hebrew name Yeshua/Y’shua, it means “to save”, “to rescue”, “to deliver”. Adam and Eve’s rebellion was not ideal, but it unfolded God’s redemption plan. Though the world is currently not as he intended, He is not a God who sits on the sidelines. We can shove Him to the side, or store Him in a small corner in our personal lives, but his purposes will yet prevail.
This song by Maverick City Music, Chris Brown (of Elevation Worship) and Chandler Moore is to me a modern take on the Psalms, mostly written by King David. A man who was always so transparent and raw about his feelings, yet humble about his limitations, and in the same breath quick to highlight God’s sovereignty. This place of brazen surrender, and unveiled wonder is how I want my heart postured this year. I want divinely curated experiences with God that’ll leave me breathless. This year is about throwing caution to the wind, in devotion to the One whose very first expression of His unrivaled love was breathing his life into me. This is my new year’s resolution.
I haven’t quite worked out a full-fledged plan for my content this year, but as always, my goal is to reveal God’s heart for you, to you. All I can do is trust Him to guide me on this journey.
Here is Have My Heart, by the anointed trio mentioned above.
