Have there been times or circumstances in your life when you felt abandoned, or that no one was standing up for you? As a believer in Christ, truth is, we’re never alone or abandoned. Instead, we are chosen, adopted and embraced by a loving God ~ as we receive HIS love and precious gift!!
Throughout scripture, it tells us how much God loves us, chose us, adopted us, cares for us … but today, I share this powerful scripture. I pray you are encouraged to know deep within you how precious you are in the eyes of God ~ how much HE loves and cares for YOU!
“So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture … I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” Romans 8:31-39 The Message version
As a believer in Jesus Christ, you have received God’s Spirit of adoption; the Spirit of power and love; a calm, well-balanced mind; discipline and self-control. You are God’s child, and also heir, with complete access to the inheritance; chosen by God, chosen for a high calling! Romans 8:15; 2 Timothy 1:7; Galatians 4:4-7
You ARE God’s Masterpiece!
