Hello everyone! I wanted to start this week reminding you how precious you are to God. He sees you, he knows you and He loves you. No matter what you have or have not done – no matter what you have gone through, no matter who you have harmed because you were hurting; He loves you! He knows you better than you know yourself! He knows why you are hurting. He knows about who hurt you. He longs to love you and heal you. He longs to give you hope again! He longs to take you from dark places and place you in the warm light of His love! You are delightful to Him and the apple of His eye. He does not see you as others see you, He sees you as He sees you – a wounded person who wants to know what real love is. He sees all you can be – regardless of where you have come from.
I know that many of you who read my blogs have come out of desperate situations or are in desperate situations. You have never known love or you have known “love” attached to conditions. I say this because love attached to conditions is not love – it is simply a contract. Do not be deceived. I am here to tell you today that you can know God as I do. You can know Him as he is – He is love, real love. He delights in knowing you! He delights in seeing you healed of all hurts and wrongs. He delights in changing people who once hurt others into people who help others. You can be changed and you are worthy of love!
Not a day goes by that He does not see you or think of you. He was neither blinded to your situation nor was He okay with you being hurt. His heart is saddened if you are hurting others but he does not hate you. He knows you hurt others because you hurt so badly. Your cries have been heard. Your tears he has kept for they are as jewels. If you have never been delightful to anyone else in your life, you are delightful to him. He made you, however, He did not make you to live like you are living now. He made you to live in peace and joy. He made you to know no fear. He made you to be an overcomer! He made you to love and be loved! He sent His Son Jesus to die for you because he delights in you so much! The payment has been made for you. Will you not come to Him now? Will you not test Him and see?
Isaiah 1:18; “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.”
Zephaniah 3:17; The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing."
John 3:16-17; For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Call on Him! He hears, he sees, he knows and He loves you! May you come to know Him as I do – for He delights in you more than you will ever know!
