The Oh So Special You!
13 February 2021
You are a very unique and special person! God made you an individual that is different, even if it’s only in small ways, from anyone else. He has numbered every hair on your head and knows every feeling of your heart, as well as every thought from your mind. He gives us free will because He wants us to love Him of our own accord. But He longs to spend eternity with each and every one of us. He loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for us and cleanse us of our sins. We will never be worthy, but we will always be loved.
John 3:16-18 says;
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
In Roman’s we are told just how much God loves us in greater detail. Nothing can be any stronger than this explanation.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them, for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee, he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
This last verse is to give us courage through Him. God and Jesus walk with us daily. Now we have been living in pretty depressing times. We are supposed to be social distancing and practicing self-isolation and quarantine. I’ve mentioned before, that it’s really hard to stay in a positive frame of mind, or even in a good mood, if we are always alone. I have experiences with this just as everyone else has. But I can do all things, through Christ who strengthens me. I do my best to keep busy, so I don’t think about what I’m missing out on. I really miss my family. I don’t have many friends, but I miss them too. Jesus Christ is my strength, and He keeps me strong in my walk in love. Through God’s Word, I know that God and Jesus love me so much that Jesus laid His life down for me. He laid His life down for everyone in all of God’s creation. That includes YOU!!! Go about your life knowing that this love for you exists. Be strong in it. Be at peace. Walk in love. You can count on God’s love and His promises. Every word He has uttered has come true, so you can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God’s word is true. He says, He loves us and will not forsake us. You can count on it! Know that these hard times will pass eventually, and have strength in God’s Love.
God loves you and I do too!
