Blessed by the King!
Your life matters because you are
Blessed by the One who created you!
Did you know that you were Blessed by God before you were ever born? Did you know that God knew you before you were even created in your mother's womb?
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you as a prophet to the nations, Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)
You were MADE in the IMAGE of GOD and blessed!
And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them. Genesis 1:26-28a (NKJV)
Then God BLESSED them!! (He blessed each of his creations. You and me!) Blessings from the King! And it is because of our being created by God that He deserves our praise!
I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are your works, And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14 (NKJV)
We are each Fearfully and Wonderfully made!! Because He made us, He loves us and He deserves our love and our praise! So we must seek after Him. Because when we seek him the way He seeks after us, we will know him well and all He wants for us! This is the beginning of faith in our Lord and Savior.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (NKJV)
Did you know that God sees you as so special that He laid down the life of His only Son to die on the cross so that YOU could be saved from your sins?
But God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)
Christ died for us. He took on all the sins we have committed and bore the pain of death as a sacrifice for us to have eternal life!
And it is because of the Father's love for us that we have received the Spirit of adoption, making us heirs with Christ as long as we believe in Him and accept his gift of salvation.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba Father." The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. (NKJV)
It stands to reason then that we ARE the sons and daughters of the most High King!
How amazing it is to know that God only wants what is best for us and a relationship with us that is so personal that He is willing to make us heirs in His Kingdom? So amazing! It is time for you to accept His love for you! To accept His free gift of salvation! And then to accept your adoption into His family to be His heir!
This is how special you are! He loves you so much that He bore your sins. All your sins! and accepting that gift of salvation means that NOTHING can hold back His love for you!
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 (NKJV)
This shows us that it is through His sacrifice that we come to the Father. We accept His gift of love by His death on the cross and His adoption of us into His Kingdom by acknowledging this. We believe that He is the Son of God and we become joint heirs with Him. We then learn to know His voice by studying God's Word.
