For the last couple of days I have been thinking on all the good things that God says about us in His word. Just to mention a few:

Zephaniah 3:17- The LORD your God is with you, a mighty warrior who saves. He will take delight in you with gladness. In his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.

Romans 8:38- For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor either things present, nor things to come, nor powers, (39) nor height, nor depth, nor any created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:1- There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:28- And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.

Jeremiah 1:5- "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."

Jeremiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

Psalms 34:7- The angels of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

Psalms 34:10- The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

When I think about these verses I think about God's great love toward us. His life changing love that we do not deserve and have never had to seek after, it has always just been there for us to delight in. I love to believe what God has to say about me, but I would be lying if I said I believed it all the time. There are many times, like this week, where I felt like He didn't love me because of all my shortcomings. I have wondered many times why such a good God loves a messy me. I sometimes think that God will love a future more perfect version of myself, but that isn't the truth. Regardless of what my emotions and thoughts tell me from time to time it does not change all that God thinks about me. It does not change His love for me.

My prayer this morning was that I would believe all that God has to say about me. If I truly believed that then I would never succumb to my thoughts or believe what the world says that I am. I would never feel the need to live to this world's ever-changing standards, instead, I would cling to God's unchanging word. His word is life and has the power to mend my broken life, if I could only have just enough faith to believe what He says about me, I know my life will never be the same.

Inspired by: #pursueinpurity day 12 verse of the day, which is: Romans 12:2- Be not conformed to this world: But be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
