What God Thinks About You
We all want to know who we are and where we came from. We look for and search for ourselves in an attempt to “discover ourselves.” Many of us have participated in personality tests and other types of evaluations. As a result, we discover that we are an ENFP, an activator, a competitor, and that we have a high I and a high D. Even while such exams can be quite beneficial, have you ever paused to consider the question, “What does God think of me?” “Can you tell me who he thinks I am?” It wasn’t until recently that I realized I’d never raised the question in this manner in all my years as a Christian.
However, if we were to explain it in a nutshell, it would sound something like this.
You Are Valuable
I am the Creator, and you are the creature of the Creator. I took a deep breath into your nostrils and gave you the breath of life (Genesis 2:7). I fashioned you in my own image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). Your unformed material was visible to my eyes (Psalm 139:16). During your mother’s pregnancy, I put you together from the inside out (Psalm 139:13). The quantity of hairs on your head is known to me, and I can tell what you’re thinking even before you say it (Matthew 10:30; Psalm 139:4). I believe that you were fearfully and wonderfully created (Psalm 139:14).
- The Bible says that God gave you dominion over all sheep and oxen, all creatures of the field, birds of the sky, and fish of the sea (Psalm 8:6–8; Genesis 1:26, 28; Jeremiah 29:11).
- You, on the other hand, have traded the truth about me for a falsehood from the very beginning.
- You have sinned and come short of the glory that I have for you (Romans 3:23).
- And you were spiritually dead as a result of your sin (Ephesians 2:1).
- You took a step back from me.
- There isn’t even one person who works good, according to Psalm 14:2–3.
- And yet, because of my great love, I gave my one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life with him (John 3:16).
- Despite the fact that you were still antagonistic toward me, the death of my Son brought about your reconciliation with me (Romans 5:8, 10).
- Grace is one of them (Romans 5:20).
- You have been reborn if you have believed (1 Peter 1:3).
- You are God’s offspring, and you are heirs of God (see 1 John 3:2 and Romans 8:16–17 for further information).
You’re no longer orphans, are you? You are mine, and I am yours (John 14:18; 1 Corinthians 6:19). Moreover, I love you in the way a perfect Father loves his children (1 John 3:1; Luke 15:20–24).
You Are New
“As the culmination and last act of God’s six-day creation process, he crowned you with glory and honor,” God said. You are a completely original creation in my eyes. The old has passed away, and the new has arrived in its place (2 Corinthians 5:17). As a result, you have dead to sin and are now alive to me (Romans 6:11; Ephesians 2:4–5), and sin is no longer your master. You have at long last been set free from the bonds of sin and death. Because of this, you are no longer under condemnation (Romans 8:1–2).
- Everything about you that is unrighteous has been washed away by Jesus’ shed blood (1 John 1:7, 9).
- You have been saved as a result of grace (Ephesians 2:8).
- You may rest certain that nothing will ever be able to separate you from my love for you through Christ Jesus (Romans 8:39).
- And I promise you that I will never abandon you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).
You Have My Spirit
Your new Father is joined by a new family of siblings and sisters, which is a wonderful blessing (Luke 8:21). You have now become a member of God’s chosen people (1 Peter 2:9). And the life you are presently living is based on your faith in my Son (Galatians 2:20). Look to Jesus for guidance. Keep an eye on him at all times. He is the originator and perfecter of your trust in Christ (Hebrews 12:2). Christ is in you because of my Spirit, and Christ is in you because you are in Christ (John 15:5; Colossians 1:27).
- Continue to trust in him (John 15:4).
- To live is to know Christ, and to die is to know gain (Philippians 1:21).
- No, instead, live according to my Spirit inside you (Zechariah 4:6; Proverbs 3:5).
- The Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth, assist you in obeying me, and enable you to carry out my instructions (John 16:7, 13; Acts 1:8; Galatians 5:16).
You Will Be Transformed
In the course of your seeking me and seeing more of my splendor, I am gradually converting you into the likeness of my Son (2 Corinthians 3:18; Exodus 33:18). One day, in a split second, in the blink of an eye, at the sound of the final trumpet, everything will be different for you (1 Corinthians 15:52). When Jesus arrives, you will be just like him because you will see him exactly as he is right now (1 John 3:2; Romans 8:29). Because of Jesus Christ, you will be freed from your physical death and will be able to live in my presence for the rest of your life (Romans 7:24–25; John 14:3).
Nor will there be grief, nor weeping, nor suffering any longer (Revelation 21:3–4).
Your rest will be with me, and you will inherit the kingdom I have prepared for you, allowing you to live a life of joy and delight in plenty forevermore (Hebrews 4:9–11; Matthew 25:34; Psalm 16:11).
Most importantly, you will be able to see my face and be present with me wherever I am (Revelation 22:4; John 14:3).
You Represent Me
“Look to Jesus for guidance. Keep an eye on him at all times. “He is the originator and perfecter of your faith,” says the apostle Paul. As a result, conduct yourself in a manner appropriate for your position (Ephesians 4:1). Because of my Son, you are no longer darkness, but light. Children of light, please walk as such (Ephesians 5:8). If you are the light of the world, you are a city perched on a mountain (Matthew 5:14). I’ve dialed your phone number (2 Peter 1:3). You are the one I’ve picked (Revelation 17:14).
You are both a witness and an employee (Acts 1:8; Ephesians 2:10).
You have a bright future ahead of you (Romans 8:18).
You are a representative of my Son’s interests (2 Corinthians 5:20).
what does Jesus think of me?
Irrespective of which translation you select for Song of Solomon 4:7, this is the perspective from which Jesus views us. You are flawlessly lovely, my darling; there isn’t a defect in your appearance. (Standard English use) Topanga from the television program “Boy Meets World” was one of the characters I remember watching. She was really cool, super hip, and super beautiful. At the age of eight, I realized that I was not as attractive as she was, but I could attempt. I altered the way I dressed and began splitting my hair in the middle instead of the sides.
- Because I was a size 4 and had already reached puberty by the fourth grade, I stood out from the rest of the females at school.
- It must have been terrifying for all of these 80-pound females to discover that I weighed 120 pounds.
- As a mother of three sons, I can understand how they felt when they wanted to protect their children.
- For many years, I was subjected to sexual molestation by a church acquaintance.
- I reasoned that perhaps I deserved it, and that perhaps this was simply a part of life.
- In high school, I felt more like a normal person.
- I was nominated for this award while at cheer camp.
It was a significant achievement for a cheerleader.
My lack of self-confidence was a persistent issue for me.
It simply happened.
Image courtesy of Wikipedia When I first met my spouse, he completely enveloped me in his affection.
As soon as he told me he loved me, I was convinced.
In his embrace, I felt the warmth of God’s love.
I knew I had discovered my soul match when I saw her.
I was surrounded by individuals who were worshiping and asking the same question that I was asking.
I was curious about my identification, so I searched it up and found the words “you are totally gorgeous my darling, there is not a defect in you” written on a girls’ book.
He doesn’t perceive any flaws in me.
It was never about how I looked in the first place.
It didn’t matter that he had been abused.
Do I agree with the reality that He loves me and is completely satisfied with my performance?
The understanding that I am the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He was over over heels in love with me from the outset.
I don’t feel inadequate.
It brings me great comfort to know that He sees nothing wrong with me.
To completely take me by surprise.
His remarks have a lyrical quality to them.
His love is much more delicious than honey. I want to be yoked to Him on an equal footing. He has a lovesick nature for me, and I want to be a part of it. I am quite grateful that I do not have to deal with the consequences of my own imperfections. But to find peace in His unwavering, jealous love.

19 Bible verses showing God’s thoughts toward us
God’s own Word, the Bible, demonstrates just a great deal of concern God has for His entire creation, and particularly for each and every one of us as individuals. He is concerned about us, has a purpose for our lives, will never abandon us, and desires for us to spend eternity with Him! Listed below is a collection of scriptures that speak about God’s views toward us.
God cares for us
The Lord says, “I know the thoughts that I have for you, and they are thoughts of peace, not of ill, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 is a Bible verse. “Your eyes were drawn to my substance, which was yet in its infancy. And they were all written down in Your book, the days that were fashioned for me while there were none of them at the time. O God, how valuable are Your thoughts to me as well! “How impressive the total of them is!” Psalm 139:16-17 is an example of this. “Why aren’t two sparrows offered for the price of a copper coin?” Your Father has commanded that none of them should fall to the earth against their consent.
Do not be afraid, for you are more valuable than a large number of sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31 is a biblical passage.
God has a plan for us
“However, you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and His own unique people, and you have been called out of darkness into His amazing light so that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His magnificent light.” 1 Peter 2:9 (New International Version) In the same way that He selected us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we could be pure and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself in accordance with the good pleasure of His will.” Ephesians 1:4-5 is a passage of scripture.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God planned in advance so that we would walk in them,” says the apostle Paul.
The apostle Paul writes, “For this is just and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who wishes that all men be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.” 2:1-3; 2 Timothy 2:3-4.
God will not forsake us
“For the Lord will not abandon His people, nor will He abandon His inheritance,” says the Bible. Psalm 94:14 (KJV). For if you would listen to Me and follow my commands, you will be a particular treasure to Me above all other people, for the entire planet is Mine. “Now, if you will really heed My voice and uphold My covenant, then you will be a special treasure to Me beyond all other people.” Exodus 19:5 is an example of a parable. “Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you everywhere you go.” “Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 is a Bible verse that states that God is a merciful God.
Never fear, because He will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you; do not be afraid or discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 is a verse from the Bible.
Romans 8:38-39 is a passage of scripture.
God is looking forward to spending eternity with us
According to John 3:16-17, “For God loved the world so much that He gave his only born Son, that whomever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” The Bible says in John 3:16 that we are to love one another. Having been set free from sin and become slaves of God, you now have your fruit, which is holiness, and your ultimate result is everlasting life,” says the apostle Paul. Paul writes in Romans 6:22. However, whomever drinks the water that I will provide him will never thirst again.
- In contrast, the water that I will give him will turn into a fountain of water in his body, bursting out into eternal life.” John 4:14 is a quotation from the Bible.
- I’m going to go set up a space for you.
- “Behold, the tent of God has come among mankind, and He will dwell among them, and they will be His people,” says the prophet.
- And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying in the world again.
What does God think of Me?
God loves us without condition, and we are holy and spotless in His eyes as a result of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Encourage your disciple to put their trust not in their own performance (or lack thereof), but in the reality of God’s Word. Q: Assume that Jesus is present with us right now. What do you suppose He’d think of you if He saw you? With.Excitement Pride Shame Frustration Pleasure Embarrassment Judgement Sadness JoyAngerIndifference SatisfactionLove Disappointment Regret Other.
Everything changed when we came to believe in Jesus.
Tip: While you’re talking about it, sketch out the diagram in stages (note the stages numbered 1-5 below). In the first case, the vertical axis is intended to represent righteousness, while the horizontal axis represents the progression of time in a Christian’s life.
2)Q: Can you tell me about yourself before you came to know Christ?
- Dead as a result of his trespasses and misdeeds
- Satiated the desires of the wicked nature
- Children of fury by their own nature
When Christ came into our lives
3)Q: What do you believe to be true about yourself now that you know Christ? With Christ, God has made us alive, has raised us up with Christ, and has enthroned us beside Him in the heavenly realms. Q: What was it that compelled God to do this? His ardent affection
Read Ephesians 1:1-14
Question 4: Make a list of all the blessings we have received as a result of our faith in Christ.
- God sees us as holy and spotless
- We are adopted as sons and daughters
- We have been redeemed
- We have been forgiven of our sins
- We have the ability to comprehend the mystery of His plan
- We have the Holy Spirit at our disposal.
With this list in hand, what does it mean to you to know that these items are sealed, guaranteed, inherited, and in our hands mean to you? It signifies that these things are yours, that you will not be able to lose them, that they will not be destroyed, and that they will be safeguarded by the might of the Almighty. 5) The final section of this graphic depicts the distinction between our current location and our current condition in Christ. Even while we have achieved perfection in our position in Christ, we are not without flaws in our everyday lives.
He also began the process of transforming our life into something that more and more resembled His.
LIVING IN OUR POSITION
Q: Do you find yourself living your life according to your circumstances or your situation? Q: It is possible that your disciple will have difficulty answering this question. Please inform them that this is OK. The following questions should help to clarify what is meant by this question, and you can return to it at the end if you need to clarify something further. Encourage your disciple to share with him or her some of the ways in which you have struggled to live according to your position and/or defaulted to living according to your condition.
- Living according to our position in Christ is accomplished through faith, which is based on the belief that what God has said about us is true.
- When you hear a lie, what are some examples of how it can help you recognize when you are acting in accordance with your condition?
- For example, “If I become a better person, God will love me more,” or “My sin isn’t that bad,” are both statements that are true.
- Tip: Get a group of people together and brainstorm some verses.
Application and Action:
- Romans 8:1 or similar passage should be memorized as a reminder for the next time you have doubts. If you can think of a Christian who might benefit from hearing this truth, go ahead and tell them about it.

What Does God Think of You?
“The mountains and hills may crumble, but my love for you will last forever.” “The mountains and hills may crumble, but my love for you will last forever” (Isaiah 54:10 GNT). If you don’t believe that God loves you, it’s unlikely that you’ll show love to anybody else. To be a loving person, you must first comprehend and remember the way God loves you. Remember every day what God thinks of you — not what the rest of the world thinks about you or what you think about yourself — because God’s opinion matters more than anything else.
- Allow me to share four things that God thinks about you in order to help you recall why and how you should love.
- You’ve been given full approval.
- However, you must recognize that God has already resolved the matter of acceptance: “Jesus.
- (Titus 3:7 CEV).
- God does not say, “I love you if,” or “I love you because,” or anything like that.
- You will never be able to make God stop loving you since his love is not dependent on your actions, but rather on who he is.
You have been completely absolved.
“There is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus,” declares the Bible’s Romans 8:1.
Rather of repeating your mistakes, God allows them to be forgiven.
You are highly regarded as a great asset.
You are a God-given kid who has “been purchased and paid for by Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 7:23 TLB).
That demonstrates how valuable you are.

It is normal for human nature to be devoured by itself. We twist our necks for acceptance and engage in a frenzied practice of comparison, without the outwardly inverted viewpoint necessary to grasp who we truly are within ourselves. We begin to doubt our true selves – what we are worth and what we are meant to do in this world. The prerequisites for our identity can be found in our priorities as they relate to God. By connecting our everyday lives with biblical truth, we may program our internal GPS to navigate us in the direction of His plan.
God’s love for us is highlighted in the narrative of the Prodigal Sons.
Despite the fact that He knew we would always fall short, He chose to love us unconditionally.
His only Son, Jesus, died on the cross as a sacrifice, allowing heaven’s door to remain open for all time. After the prodigal returns, Greg Morse describes it beautifully: “The wayward son braces himself for a smack but instead receives an embrace.” God declares that we are:
- .loved (John 3:16)
- .His (1 John 3:1)
- .worthy (Zephaniah 3:17)
- .purposed (Jeremiah 29:11)

Why Does it Matter What God Says of Me?
What does the Bible teach about God, and how does it relate to us? We must first comprehend who God is before we can comprehend who we are, according to Him. The narrative of the Prodigal Son demonstrates God’s enormous love for us, as well as our ability to choose to accept it. In spite of the fact that he knows who we are, our Father and Creator wishes a true and personal connection with us. In Exodus 3:13-15, God declares three facts about Himself that are worth noting:
- “I Am Who I Am” is a statement of self-identification. (3:14a)
- “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14b)
- “This is my name forever” (3:14c)
- “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14d)
- “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14e)
- “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14f)
- “I Am has sent me to you” (3:14 (3:15)
God is not in need of anything from us. He is all-knowing and all-powerful, and He is in complete command of the universe. Theologian John Piper remarked, “There is nothing more fundamental and nothing more ultimate than the reality that God exists.” Love, justice, righteousness, forgiveness, and wisdom are all characteristics that contribute to His persona. Once we have come to terms with who He is, the proclamation of His spoken name bears the appropriate amount of weight and importance. “It’s virtually usually rendered ‘LORD’ (all capitals) in the English Bible,” John Piper asserted clearly.
Who Am I According to God’s Word?
What does the Bible have to say about my true self? God, who spoke the universe into being, wishes to communicate with us. We are a part of the tapestry that He has woven for all of creation. We can understand our intrinsic need for something greater than ourselves since we were created in His likeness. We were created to seek and experience life in contact with God, and we have been called to fulfill a specific mission. His will for our lives reflects the loving Father that He is. He is all-knowing, just, and perfect, and His will for our lives reflects the loving Father that He is.
- Perhaps the greatest way to convey how God views us is to use the word “redeemed.” The writer Dave Burchett stated that redemption “is the fact I have to remind myself of on an almost daily basis.
- Despite this, I live as if my self-effort is necessary to make up for past challenges and attempts, which is not the case.
- Day after day, as he embraced the warmth of his house and the restoration of his family, he was sure to recall the destiny he had deserved.
- The payment of a ransom results in the release of a prisoner from prison.
- Who are we in the sight of God?
in this now. Jesus died on the cross, carrying with Him every sin we will ever commit. Anything and everything may be used to disprove His flawless sacrifice for our everlasting freedom. More Bible scriptures about salvation may be found by clicking here.
What Does God Think about Me?
“I have called you by name; you are mine,” we are told in Isaiah 43:1 b. God made us in the same way a potter shapes clay (The NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible). God has not only created us, but He has also developed us and called us to serve Him in specific ways that are customized to each individual’s unique circumstances. In the eyes of man, this is impossible; yet in the eyes of God, anything is possible.” (Matthew 19:25-26; Mark 10:25-26) According to the context of the preceding verse, the word “man” in the original Greek language denotes the distinction between God and human beings.
- It differentiates us as human beings, but it also distinguishes us from plants and animals, as well as from God and Christ and as well as from angels. He is speaking particularly to who WE are and to the vulnerabilities that we have that cause us to sin
- The manner in which Jesus addressed man evokes a sense of scorn or contemptuous pity, which is indicative of our underappreciated gift of His grace. We consciously choose to sin. It is not by chance that we are here, and God does not feel sorry for us because of our proclivity toward sin. The NASB version states that “man,” or more accurately, “people,” are two-fold in nature: body and spirit. He forgives us and loves us despite our shortcomings. When it comes to conforming to God’s nature, both the corrupt and the real Christian do so
- Because of the impossibility, we are forced to confront our predetermined fate in eternity if Christ’s sacrifice had not occurred. Despite the fact that we are helpless to alter who we are, redemption provides us with the option to be grafted into His strength and surrender our will for His way
According to John Rinehart’s book, “What God Thinks About You,” we are important, new, Spirit-filled, undergoing transformation, and representatives of God’s character. “Remember who created you, O Jacob,” the VOICE translation of Isaiah 43:1 wonderfully reminds us: “Remember who created you, O Jacob.” O Israel, who fashioned your personality? As you can see, you have nothing to be afraid about. I, the one who created you, will return you to me. “I have chosen you and declared you to be Mine.” A love that is unattainable for man, but not for God.
Who Am I in Jesus Christ?
I am made possible via Jesus Christ. To be more specific, I am powerful, tremendous, strong, and competent. “Then who can be saved in the whole world?” the disciples questioned Jesus. According to the NIV Study Bible Notes, “salvation is entirely the work of God.” Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8-9, “God rescued you by his grace when you put your faith in him. It is a gift from God, and you have no right to claim credit for it. As a result, none of us can take credit for salvation because it is not a reward for the excellent things we have done.” According to an excerpt from John Rinehard’s book, “What God Thinks About You,” the reality of who we are in Jesus Christ is brought into sharper focus through biblical clarity: “You are no longer darkness, but light in my Son,” the Father says to you.
- If you are the light of the world, you are a city perched on a mountain (Matthew 5:14).
- You are the one I’ve picked (Revelation 17:14).
- You are both a witness and an employee (Acts 1:8;Ephesians 2:10).
- You have a bright future ahead of you (Romans 8:18).
- In 2 Corinthians 5:20, the Bible says, “You are an ambassador for my Son.”
How Can God Love Me?
God is able to love us because He is Love Himself. In order for them to be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to total oneness, I have given them the glory you gave me. After then, the entire world will know that you sent me and that you have loved them just as much as you have loved me” (John 17:22-23). John, Jesus’ closest buddy on this planet, may have known more than anybody else who we are and what God says about us. He watched Jesus’ life, which was lived out in perfect love, firsthand.
“The love of God does not save us from pain and death.
His love for us is most seen in his displaying us and giving us himself in his majesty.” – John Piper, “How to Know God Loves You.” – John Piper, “How to Know God Loves You.” More passages that describe how God is Love may be found by clicking here.
What Does God See When He Looks at Me?
“My sheep are attentive to my voice; I recognize them and they follow me. “I grant them eternal life, and they will never expire; no one will ever be able to take them from my grasp” (John 10:27-28). God sees the ideal creation He designed, but he also recognizes that humans will always fall short of it. As we travel the path of life in pursuit of Christ, He will assist us in seeing our real reflection via our daily pursuit of His Word, which we will do through prayer and meditation. The Bible is the Word of God that is alive and active today.
God purposely places individuals in our lives who will love us and vice versa, so that we may love them back.
As Jesus said, “By your love for one another, everyone will know that you are my followers” (John 13:35).
10 Bible Verses about Who God Says I am
God, on the other hand, being abundant in compassion, because of His great love for us and the intensity with which He loved us, even while we were dead in our sins, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).” (Ephesians 2:4-5, New American Standard). “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the trustworthy God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and obey his commands to a thousand generations of those who do right in his sight” (Deuteronomy 7:9).
- (See also Romans 5:8).
- The Bible says (1 Peter 2:9).
- ‘But his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and he hurried to embrace him and kiss him when he was still a great distance away'” (Luke15:20 NAS).
- It is through faith in Jesus Christ, who loved me and gave himself up for me, that I live the life I am currently living in the body (Galatians 2:20).
- The Bible states (1 John 4:19) that we should love one another as we love ourselves.
“I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, and they are plans incomparably your good and not for your harm, plans to give you hope and a future.” (See Jeremiah 29:11 for more information.) More scriptures regarding our identity in Christ may be found by clicking here.
We Are Who God Says We Are
We are not defined by the faults that threaten to define us, but rather by the biblical truth that demonstrates our true value. We have been made by Love to love in the same way that we walk with Love. We are here to spread the word about Him. His aim is to accompany us on our journey, rewarding us and showering us with more than we could ever ask or dream for ourselves and our families. Only by coming near to Him and prioritizing our lives in such a way that we put Him first will we be able to perceive the layers of who we are from His perspective.
She left her comfort zone, as well as her Marketing profession, in 2011 to follow God’s call to be at home with her children and be “Mom.” Her blog, Sunny 80, was formed as a result of that act of obedience, as a means of preserving the amusing everyday moments of parenting.
She enjoys conducting her Monday morning Bible study, being a dancing parent, long distance running, and taking pictures of her children.
What God Really Thinks About You
Rather than being defined by our faults, we are defined by the biblical truth that demonstrates our true value. In order to love, we have been created by Love to walk in the footsteps of Love. His name is recognized because we exist. His aim is to accompany us on our journey, rewarding us and showering us with more than we could ever ask or dream for ourselves and our loved ones. Seeing ourselves as He sees us will only come about as a result of growing near to God and living a life that is centered on Him.

“Friends with Everyone” is Meg’s first novel, which she wrote as a freelance writer.
- Considering how wonderful God is, it is puzzling that He allows evil and suffering to exist. How come, if God is so kind, there is only one path leading to heaven? If God was truly concerned, why wouldn’t He intervene to prevent the difficult events from occurring?
The important thing is to take these questions to God rather than using them as an excuse to withdraw from the conversation. What would happen if we went to God with our sorrows instead of turning to others? What if, instead of talking and moaning about God, we utilized our inquiries to come closer to Him and learn more about Him? He’ll be able to handle it. In fact, He is interested in hearing them. A greater knowledge of God’s nature and attitudes toward me has been the most valuable gift that has come through my suffering, according to him.
- This is why we must allow ourselves to be in mourning.
- Instead of diminishing our thankfulness, lamenting enhances it, increasing our ability to be more attentive to the joys that do come our way.
- I discovered that family is much more than a biological connection; it is a spiritual connection.
- Orphans are near and dear to the Father’s heart, and He is very concerned about their suffering.
- We never have to audition for God’s family, nor do we have to go through a trial period before being accepted.
- God does not celebrate sadness, nor does He cause it; nevertheless, God does guarantee us His presence and blessing in the midst of our suffering.
- Our narrative will not come to a close with a sorrow.
What excellent thoughts to live by!
This was something I’d been doing for a long time.
However, when we are confident in God’s true assessment of us, we are drawn back to the reality of who He is and the promises He has made to us.
Further investigation into this chapter revealed to me that Jeremiah, a weeping prophet, was speaking to captives in this section.
Instead, he was speaking to people who would be held captive in Babylon for over seventy years.
In addition, recognizing God’s kindness will not only assist us to persevere, but it will also give us the assurance that no matter what life throws at us, His feelings toward us are always positive and loving!
When we understand how He feels about us, we are free to ask and tell Him anything we want.
And that is precisely what He hopes for us — that we will turn to Him even when life seems to be falling apart, if not more so.
