MONDAY 9TH JAN.,2017
TOPIC: APPROVED – YOU ARE PERFECT
TEXT: Jeremiah 1:5
Do you know that God was thinking about you before you were ever born? He knew everything about you before you were in your mother’s womb. He created you on purpose and for a purpose. He carefully planned who you would be, the color of your hair, eyes and skin – your total frame. He gave you gifts, talents and abilities to be used for His glory. He took one look at you and said, “Approved.”The manufacturer’s seal.
No matter how you may be feeling right now, no matter whose approval you didn’t get on this earth, know that Almighty God loves you and approves of you today. There’s nothing you can do now or ever to change that. “You may be feeling guilty of past mistakes, how can God approve of me?” Believe that when God sees you, He separates you from your behavior. He may not approve of your actions, but He desires to help you grow and make better choices. From the story of the fall of Adam and Eve, we discovered that God created another plan of recovery for approval. He gave His only begotten SON JESUS to you and I and Jesus in turn gave His Life – as a ransom to all because of love to us (Jn. 3:16,10: 15).
Today, receive His love and acceptance. Allow Him to continue the work He has started. Pray for His love to empower and strengthen you because you are approved and equipped to live in victory always.
