God wants all of us because he created us in his image for a unique and special purpose! We were bought and paid for with Jesus precious blood. The world defines value the complete opposite of what God values. When we know our value and identity is attached to Jesus (who is the vine) nothing can move you. God has a purpose and a future! It’s not grounded in this world that changes like shifting shadows! You’re grounded in God who is the same yesterday, today and forever. When we read the Psalms, we can see how David knew his true identity. His deep relationship he had with God pours out in every Psalm he wrote. These intimate prayers reflect his love for God. He struggled and kept his first love!
God looks at the heart and says David will do everything I ask him to do. Acts13:22 “After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.” God knows everything about us. David loved God and prayed through his struggles. When we love God with all of our heart, all of our souls, all of our mind, and all of our strength, we will be available, willing, faithful, teachable, humble, obedient, compassionate, loving and more! We will put into practice everything we are taught and choose to be thankful for all circumstances while seeking God in everything. We are God’s children, living in unity as sisters and brothers in Christ, who are children after God’s own heart. We are Consumed by His radiant light of Love ready to make every step count with the Kingdom mindset goal of loving others as much as He called us to do. When you focus on that speck of light, it will grow!
Romans 12:10: Love one another deeply. Honor others more than yourselves.
