What does God think about you?
Updated: Jun 14, 2021
In contemplating what God thinks about me, I turn back to scripture and I find these marvelous truths:
In John 3:16, we find that God loves us.
God is madly in love with you! He loves THE WORLD so much that He GAVE HIS ONLY SON. For me, and for you. Our part is only to have faith and BELIEVE that He loves us. That is the part we struggle with. That the creator of the universe LOVES US! He wants to hang out and be our FATHER!
In Psalm 139, we find that God made us.
You were God's idea. Psalm 139 also says that He knows us and that He is with us ALWAYS. And we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Read the whole chapter. Ephesians 2 says we are His workmanship, and God doesn't make mistakes. You are His masterpiece! It also says that in the ages to come he would show the exceeding riches of His grace in kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. It sounds like He wants to be kind and gracious to us.
1John 2:2 , we find that His Son died for us.
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Jesus, who knew no sin, BECAME sin for us. For the whole world. He also took on all sickness and disease at the Cross. He did it for you. A very pretty price was paid on your behalf. If you didn't matter why would God waste His Son on you? Think about that for a moment.
In Jeremiah 29:11, God says He has a plan for you.
A lot of people struggle with their purpose in life. God made you, and He put those dreams in your heart from the beginning. Never give up on your dreams. You have a purpose, and you were designed with specific gifts. If we could just do what we love to do, follow our hearts and our dreams, and trust the Lord to work through us, instead of trying to figure everything out on our own, we would be so much better off. We are jars of clay, designed to rest and be filled with the Holy Spirit who works through us. 2 Cor. 4:7 says that we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in earthen vessels. Rest and trust; and listen to the promptings from the Lord, and you will be amazed at where He leads you.
Let's practice getting these promises in our minds, and especially in our hearts.
He LOVES YOU! And there's not a thing you can do except BELIEVE and receive IT!
