Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. – 2 Corinthians 3:17
Today I want you to know something, and this is actually a direct quote from my other grandpa. “Believe in the God who believes in you.” Today I want you to know something. God really does believe in you. God is on your side. God is rooting for you. So often in life, we think either God doesn’t exist, God has abandoned me, or God is punishing me. No, you are God’s beloved daughter, you are God’s beloved son. He is on your side in spite of the mistakes that you’ve made, and they may have been many. In spite of all of your flaws, God is rooting for you. If we are going to be men and women who walk in the ways of Jesus Christ, we have to first begin to believe that God loves us. He wants the best for our lives. He wants us to have the richest life that’s available to us. He believes in you. Believe in Him!
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for believing in me despite my flaws. Please help me to believe in you and accept your love and grace today and everyday. Amen.
REFLECTION: How deeply do I believe that God is rooting for me and believes in me? How can I focus on his love in a more positive manner today?
