1. You are KNOWN
If anyone imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, he is known by God. 1 Corinthians 8:2-3
You are known by God. He knows every aspect of your being. He knows where you are at. He hears your prayers. He sees your struggles. We feel broken sometimes - He knows.
We can sometimes feel isolated and alone in our battle, like no one else knows what we're going through, but we must understand that's a LIE!
God knows what you're going through, He sees how messed up you are. He really knows. Even though, God knows us intimately, He doesn't want us to stay where we are!
2. You are ACCEPTED
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:14-15
God sees us where we are. He knows us and he accepts us, but he doesn't do it on the account of how awesome we are, he accepts us because of Jesus perfect payment for our sins on the cross, because of that God can accept us.
However, he's not going to leave us as we are. He is going to change us!
3. You are LOVED
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
God changes us from the inside out because He loves us.
Not that we deserve it, but He does.
We get so caught up in trying to earn His love and earn His acceptance, but we forget His love is too glorious to be obtain by our actions or deeds.
Love like that can only be given as a gift.
4. You are His CHILD
But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons [& daughters] of God, through faith. Galatians 3:25-26
We were once in rebellion against God, but now we are His children.
He gave us the gift of repentance and faith at conversion and even now He is gifting us with His gifts of faith, courage, and repentance.
We are His children, He took us into His family even when we were cover in dirt.
You are His Child now. Don't forget it!
5. God is ENOUGH
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
In the chaos of daily life, we get so consumed with what we need to do, what we need to accomplish, in addition to, having our expectations met and making life go as we want it, we loss sight of this powerful truth from scripture.
God is enough for you.
He has provide, is providing, and will provide everything you need to do His work.
Notice, I didn't say all you want.
I'm not tell you that God is gonna give you everything you want.
However, if our desires are focused on God, then our hearts will be focus on getting closer to Him. We will want God. Then we will truly understand that God is always enough!
