No Longer do I have to Peek Inside

John 15:15 (NIV)

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

This morning as it is my usual "routine", I began to pray on my ride to work. I began to thank the Lord for the new day, the clouds that will bring the rain for the vegetation, for health, my family, for a job...then I began to pray about the armor that the Lord speaks to us about in Ephesians. I began to reflect on all the pieces, the Helmet of Salvation, Shield of Faith, the Breastplate of Righteousness, etc. and I began to thank him...just thank him...for he has made provision for all I need in this life....he covers me with his Righteousness.....he equips me with Truth....His Spirit guides me....He speaks and directs me....than the Lord reminded me that I

no longer am outside the courts of the King....he has invited me in...he has clothed me rightly...and he bestows favor and calls me his daughter. No longer am I opposing the One which is Good for me...but He has called me to enjoy the privilege of being know...we don't have to be outside any longer...we don't have to peak through the palace windows...we don't have to be afraid to approach the King.....He has equipped us for battle and He dressed us to dine with dine with the Righteousness....a breastplate and a royal robe!

God bless you!~Liz
