God knows me. I am His Holy child. Redeemed by His blood. He has placed His love on me. He knows my heart. Why I do things. How I feel. Where I hurt. What I've been through. He knows where I am going.
Today I am comforted by the truth that God knows me intimately, inside and out - more than I know myself. He knows what makes me tick, what grieves my heart, and the longings of my soul, because He created me!
If you feel cast aside, unimportant, abandoned or alone, remember this simple truth:
God sees everything. He knows. He lived life on this earth fully human, enduring the same temptations, betrayal and rejection that we have all faced. He did not come to judge us, but to save us from everything that empties our souls. He came to give us life, because He knows that we end up bankrupt and disillusioned by the things we chase after.
There are deep places in our souls that are craving acceptance and love that can only be satisfied by God Himself.
How many things have we pursued that has left us starving for God, sentenced to bread and water, when God has a feast prepared for us? Cheap substitutes for the abundant life that God longs to lavish on us. We eek out a living in a field of weeds, when we could be experiencing the deep joy that comes from knowing and walking with God.
Seek God first. It is His pleasure to give you every good thing.
Provers 10:22 The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and He adds no sorrow to it.
May you know the blessings of God today in a very tangible way. He loves you and will never give up on you. His love is not conditional. Come to Him as you are. He's already there.
