Our church hosted an annual Free Store for the local community this year.
Covid had shut down the location that it had been hosting it in the past, so fortunately, our church was a recommended location.
While placing the donated items on stacks and piles of tables, I was in awe of the inventory.
We had sections.
I was becoming familiar with where all the inventory was located so that I could point others in the right direction,
when the Spirit of God moved on my heart to see a glimpse of Heaven.
It was as if He said, “The Father prepared a Free Store.”
Think of it, and then read this.
Are you there in your heart?
Walking into unlimited provision?
“Grace to you and peace [inner calm and spiritual well-being] from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed and worthy of praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ, just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will— to the praise of His glorious grace and favor, which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [His Son, Jesus Christ].”
Ephesians 1:2-6 AMP
Which He so freely bestowed upon us…
Everything in that Free Store was Free!
You came in, as you were, no questions asked and got to take home whatever you not only needed,
As is the Father’s heart.
But often times, spiritually speaking, we stop at the door-
Knowing, the Father has all that stuff-
But am I really worthy, or invited to come shop there?
Let’s really meditate on the word whosoever.
Whosoever believes on Me, Jesus said, will not perish, but have everlasting life.
I know that speaks of eternity, but did you know that the Free Store doesn’t just open when you get to Heaven?
No, I believe the moment you receive Everlasting Life, which is Jesus Himself,
The Door is open.
Jesus is the way in.
I see Him as that Tree of Life In the Garden.
I choose to feast on Him and His Fulness every day.
I love shopping!
So, I want to stir you up.
If you’re just hanging out in the parking lot…
You haven’t given your heart to Jesus to be your provision…
He’s waving you to come in.
And maybe you have given your heart to Jesus, but you’re still hanging out in the parking lot, reasoning whether or not you should go in and shop.
If that’s you, He’s waving you in.
Come on in with me.
Let’s explore the depth and width and length and height of His Love for us.
Everything is free in the Free Store,
Thank you so much Jesus!
