Do you matter? What are you worth?

 

I know sometimes people will tell you that you can be easily replaced. Maybe they have told you that you were a mistake. However, you were made in the image of God. He knit you together in your mothers womb. He designed you perfectly and wonderfully. He has a plan and purpose for your life. He knows how many hairs are on your head. His thoughts of you out number the grains of sand in the sea. He loves you so much that He died for you on a cross. He paid a high price for you. He did all of that just to have a relationship with you. He is your healer, provider, comforter and teacher. If He takes care of the birds, how much more will He take care of you! He wants you to talk to Him and expect an answer. He will never leave you or forsake you. You can talk to Him any time, day or night. He will never let you down. He is faithful! One time I was talking to Him and I told Him, “I know you love me because you love everyone and you don’t want anyone to perish, but you probably don’t like me because I sin. There are people I love because they are family but I don’t like them.” The very next day at Bible college during worship a lady came up to me that I had never seen before and said, ” God wants me to tell you that He not only loves you but He likes you too.” Then the gal singing on stage says, ” I just hear God saying right now, that He not only loves all of you, He likes you too!” I was in awe, that God almighty would take the time to press upon others to tell me that, so I would know without a doubt that He likes me. He loves you and likes you too! He loves you just the way you are right this minute, sin and all. He tells us that if we seek Him we will find Him. Start seeking Him today!! Open up that Bible and start reading how much He loves you!
