We are packing. The house hasn’t sold yet but it will, God has told me so. In preparation, we’re moving some things into storage close to our planned destination.
I was in the barn looking at a stack of boxes, when my attention was drawn to a rope that my husband was using to bundle something. It was a three strand rope, very strong.
As I studied the three strands of that rope, the Lord spoke to my heart, “You are thrice mine.” I thought about it, and realized I do indeed have three sets of fingerprints on my spirit, proof of His indelible touch.
You see, God created me. Psalm 139:16 tells me, “Your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written…” That means I was created with God’s fingerprints on my spirit. Once His. Awesome.
God saved me and gave me eternal life. In Hebrew’s 12:2 I read,”…Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross…” Jesus’ fingerprints on my spirit. Twice His. Incredible.
And last, but certainly not least, I have given myself to Him. In John 16:13 Jesus says, “…When He, the Spirit of truth shall come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears, He will speak…” By the Holy’s Spirit’s leading, I saw my need and gave myself to Jesus. The Holy Spirit’s fingerprints on my spirit. Thrice His.
My life, my salvation, my strength. Thrice His. Brilliant.
Ecclesiastes. 4:12b A threefold cord is not easily broken.
