The Cookie Jar
By Senior Leader Susan Rovetto
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the one who takes refuge in him…
One morning I awoke to the Lord saying… I am taking the lid off the cookie jar! Then
He began to show me how so many of His kids are believing that they do not have access
to His goodness! So often in our childhood the “cookie jar” was used as a bribe to get us
to perform as expected. If we ate our vegetables, remained quiet, performed as expected
then the reward was a cookie. How many times did you get to see the cookies but were
Your heavenly father wants you to know that His son, Jesus Christ already took all your
punishment on the cross. You never need to earn access to ALL OF GOD’s
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
If you fear the Lord, the angels are surrounding you and He is delivering you from you
past so that you can TASTE and see that the Lord is Good.
As we are in a season of the lid being off the cookie jar, we still need to reach in and grab
the cookie! The cookies do not just jump out of the jar and into our hands. Today the
Lord wants you to reach in and take and taste of His goodness. His goodness is available
to you today, don’t miss it because you are stuck in the lie that you have not earned it!!!
Last week I filled a cookie jar with some amazingly delicious cookies and I placed it on
the stage during Sunday morning worship service at Urban Mission. Every child in the
worship service could not take their eyes off the mouthwatering cookies! That is how
we need to approach the goodness of God. We need to be so hungry for Him that we
cannot resist His goodness!!!
Today I break off the lie that you are not worthy and encourage you to reach in for His
Love, Hope, Joy, Peace, Healing, Deliverance and anything else that you need today. He
is available, heaven is open, He is waiting for you to respond!
