Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely. | Psalm 139:4
Beloved, I have seen the heaviness of your heart when you were misunderstood, even by those closest to you. Truly I understand your sorrows and grief, for I, too, was rejected and misunderstood (Isaiah 53:3). Even though some days the sadness may seem to overwhelm you, what the Scripture says is true: My mercies and compassions never fail; they are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).
Know this, My Bride: when man has misjudged you, I will never misunderstand your heart.
“The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).
When the enemy of your soul—and even your own thoughts—begin to condemn you, know that My blood speaks a better word (Hebrews 12:24). Be assured that even in the times when you stumble, and in your moments of weakness, you are altogether lovely to Me, My Bride (Song of Songs 1:5).
Keep pressing forward, My Love, even when your heart is heavy. My grace is sufficient for you, and My strength is made perfect in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). I am for you, and My mercies are new every morning. I am that friend who sticks closer than a brother, and I will never misunderstand your heart.
Let him lead me to the banquet hall,
and let his banner over me be love (Song of Songs 2:4).
