PRAYER OF BELONGING
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God. I Peter 2:9
Belonging ~ Becoming ones possession.
O Lord Jesus, to be chosen, to be declared holy, to know that I have someone to whom I belong is so comforting to me today. There are those who often exclude me from their conversation. At times, I don’t feel wanted. Some who claim to know me are really strangers to me. Who they turn aside, they misjudge. Jesus, You experienced that. They rejected the person they thought they knew, but if they had seen Your glory, they would have embraced You.
I’m so glad I’m Yours. You are my Bridegroom and you know me. Really know me! Your ear is bent to listen; Your heart to discern. You hear, not only what I say, but what I don’t say. I rest in the comfort of such intuitive understanding.
To be wanted by someone like You is the highest privilege. Whatever shame might exist because I have been rejected by others dissipates in the joy of knowing that I am Your desire. And what’s most important is not that I’m wanted, but that I desire You above all else. Amen
