How often do you listen to God? Are you afraid of what He is thinking about you -or- what He will say to you if you should choose to listen? Did you know He is constantly speaking to you? He thinks you are precious. You are the apple of His eye. His treasured child who he looks at with love and admiration. He simply can't ever get enough of you!
Do you get that? If you have a false belief of who God is (Which most of us do or have had) it can be difficult to fully receive how it is He feels about us. After all, we mess up like...EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!
He gets it though - He knows we are learning and he wants to walk beside us, encourage us, and love us through the chapters of our life story. He wants his name right beside ours on every single page. He isn't critical, negative or condemning - He is in fact just the opposite. He jumps for joy over us! We are his most treasured prize.
How can He stand the mess-up's that we are you ask? Ponder on this...when He looks at us He sees us through the filter of Jesus, completely forgiven of sin. Isn't that amazingly good news? He already solved the problem of all that could make us look unattractive to Him. Now through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on our behalf, He can look at us and truly delight in us.
You are His BELOVED. You have CAPTURED His HEART!!!
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. -Zeph. 3:17
