Do you have difficulties believing that God really loves you? Don’t let that kind of doubts eat you up. Take God and his promises seriously. Because he is really serious about loving and caring for you.
When you doubt God, you diminish God in your life. And when you diminish him, you diminish yourself at the same time. Because in Him you find your true self. Become everything God created you to be, exceptional in every sense!
So cut off all the doubts from your life. Bring them to God and let him deal with them. Don’t nurture the doubts, don’t believe the lies of the enemy. Because the goal of our enemy is to diminish God in all of us. You don’t want that. You want God to increase in your life. You want to become everything God created you to be. Slowly but surely that happens when you keep on trusting God, receiving his abundant grace, and embracing his love for you.
“Don’t be bluffed into silence by the threats of bullies. There’s nothing they can do to your soul, your core being. Save your fear for God, who holds your entire life—body and soul—in his hands. “What’s the price of a pet canary? Some loose change, right? And God cares what happens to it even more than you do. He pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk. You’re worth more than a million canaries. (Matthew 10: 28-31, MSG)
God cares for you down to the last detail. How amazing is that! You’re worth more than a million canaries. How wonderful is that! Embrace it! Rejoice! And put that overflowing love in action.
Don’t let the world intimidate you or silence you. Become everything God created you to be, exceptional in every sense. Don’t let the world make you so busy that you don’t have time for the most important thing in life: a relationship with God Almighty. Immerse yourself in praying and studying the Scriptures, the only way to keep the doubts away and your faith flowing. Keep faith but not just to yourself. Pass it on!
I bring you all our doubts.
Take away all that diminish you in my life.
May you increase in my life.
Enable me to truly receive your love and grace.
Help me to pass it on to others.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Why is it hard for you to believe that you’re cherished by God? That you’re meant to be exceptional in every sense?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you embrace God and become everything God created you to be, exceptional in every sense!
