Numbers have always been used by God to speak to me. There are several passages throughout the Bible that are specific numbers that have such specific meaning to my life. This is one of them.
Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings
Psalms 17:8 NASB
I heard someone speak and say “You are the apple of God’s eye, you’re HIS girl” and I thought ‘imagine if that were true’.
See I was never a daddy’s girl. My dad and I were a lot alike therefore we battled for control. So to be the apple of my Daddy’s eye was foriegn to me. God knew this….. and made sure I would believe this when it was spoken. Because when I googled it to find out where it was written the numbers 17:8 is my birthdate.
See those without faith see that as a coincidence. I know my God had His hand in making sure those were the exact numbers so when my untrusting heart heard those precious words I would absolutely believe that I am indeed the apple of Gods eye.
I pray today you begin to believe the messages He sends you. I pray you believe that you are so special to God that He would indeed make sure hundreds of years ago specific numbers would be placed exactly where He needed them to say “Yup that’s specifically for you”
I decided to step out of my box just now and I typed the word “numb” in the search box. I could only read a few of the posts of people expressing the feeling of being unable to express what they’re feeling. Coincidence?
I don’t think so. I have noticed over the years on Facebook that others will begin to go through the same kind of symptoms that I will be feeling inside. For example say I’m having a really bad mental attack from the enemy. I will then begin to see status updates with similar remarks as to what I am thinking. Then there are the few that are on the opposite side of this circle and they encourage those who are struggling.
Many of the posts I saw today write very similar things. Such as “I don’t even know why I feel like this”. What if…. what if they feel like this simply because they are on the side of the coin waiting for another to come and shine their light and lift another up?
Far fetched I know….but it’s a thought to ponder. One to possibly open your mind up to the next time you encounter someone having a day when everything seems to go wrong. Maybe it’s your turn to be the one to lift them up.
The thought that keeps coming to mind is the figure 8. I don’t have any fancy pictures to upload but the figure 8 is also the symbol for infinity. It’s a never ending circle that meets at the Cross. Imagine if you will one side being Light the other being dark….they both meet at the Cross. The question I want to leave with you is….what side are you on today…and what are you doing with it?
