Did you know that the God of all creation loves you? He loves you with an everlasting love that is perfect. The Bible tells us in Isaiah 49:16 “See, I have engraved you in the palm of my hands.” and in John 10:28 “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.” The nail-pierced scars on Jeus Christ’s hands forever confirms this very truth. The hands that created the universe hold you forever. He will carry you and never let you go. Sometimes we feel that we must change ourselves to stay pleasing to Him or He’ll give up on us. It’s the world that pressures us to conform to what it thinks we ought to do and be to have any worth or value in this life. The world is wrong! Friend, His word says in Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” When you surrender your heart to Christ, there is nothing you can ever do to be more pleasing to Him. When God sees you, He sees you in Christ. All we have to do is abide in Him. Jesus said in John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”   As we remain in Christ and grow in Him, it’s then the changes come as we become more like Him.  Our hearts are transformed to desire the things that He desires, with His love as the foundation of our motivation to serve Him ,  “…for love is of God. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. ”  – 1 John 4:7

He is the source of your strength, joy and hope. You are never alone.  Trust Him today and be blessed!
