God has shown me over the past year the importance of knowing who I am in Him. To constantly seek what He says about me in His Word. God has shown me that when I depend on the acceptance of others and what others think of me is when I am my weakest. When we focus on others acceptance and opinions of us we take our focus off of God and that is never good. Our value and who we are is not found in people or things, it is only in Jesus that we can find who we are.
God wants to be known, He wants us to see who He is, and listen to Him. But most of the time we don’t take the time to seek Him, persue a stronger relationship, and listen to Him. The same thing that others do to us by not giving us some of thier time to get to know us is what we do to God whenever we don’t take time to spend with Him. When we don’t spend time with God we suffer for it because without God we will never know what our purpose is, without God we just exist, we spend our lives striving to fill a void in our hearts, we fall for the traps and the lies the enemy sets in our way, ultimately coming to ruin. God is the only one who has the answers to your questions and His way never fails. Our whole lives should be consumed by God, He should be our focus, our reason to live, the very air we breathe.
God created man and breathed in Him the breath of life. Every breath we’ve taken since is because of God. Life starts with God and it ends with God. Through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ we are forgiven of our sins and can come before God without shame, we can live knowing we are covered in the Righteousness of Christ, and through Jesus we can have a relationship with God. God showed how much He loved us whin sending His only Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. We are loved by the God of the Universe, what more could we ask for ? In seeking God I find great joy, I find more about who I am as He directs my path, and when I stay focused on Him I feel loved and accepted even when others don’t accept me.
Today let us take time to read the Bible and see what God says about us, read how Jesus says we should live and read how much He loves us, and to pray and ask God to help us live as He wants us to live and to help us overcome anything that tries to convince us that we are not worthy, not loved, or that we are alone.
