God Loves You

"But whoever loves God is known by God."  1 Corinthians 8:3

Everyone wants to be accepted. We all want to know that others appreciate us. But the truth in life is that not everyone will. There are going to be people in our lives who simply don’t like us. Too often, though, we waste a lot of time getting those who don’t like us to like us and accept us. And we put too much weight into what the wrong “they” say.

But have you ever considered the words you speak to yourself? Often, we can speak badly about ourselves because we’ve heard those same things from others in our lives – from the wrong “they.” God, though, has something to say that many people may never tell us. His message to us is simply, “I love you.”

God accepts you just the way you are. Don’t base your sense of self-worth on what the wrong “they” tell you. Instead, find acceptance and love from God first. Because then you’ll discover a foundation that life can truly be built on.

Thank God for His perfect love in your life. When you begin to hear words of rejection from others, pray for His strength and peace to invade your life so you can discover a life of acceptance from above.

When someone in your life rejects you in any way, don’t focus on the rejection. Instead, lean in on God’s acceptance of you. And pray for His strength to see you through.
