Are you worn out, trying to earn love, value, and acceptance from anything or anyone other than Jesus Christ?
If so, then you are in the perfect state of mind to receive from Him today.
He’s been waiting for this moment.
He’s been waiting for you to realize that only He can meet your needs perfectly.
So grab your cup of coffee (or beverage of choice) and your Bible and take time to soak in His life-giving words to you today.
You will be glad you did!
“My beloved, I created you and every other human being with an intrinsic need to experience My unconditional love, value, and acceptance.”
“I designed life in this world so that the only thing that will meet these needs perfectly is a dependent love relationship with Me.”
“Sadly, from the cradle to the coffin, from taking your first steps to your last breath, this fallen world’s system conditions you to earn and deserve love, value, and acceptance through living on a performance-based treadmill.”
“This may surprise you, but your hunger to experience no-strings-attached affection, worth, and belonging goes far beyond a humanistic need to feel good about yourself; it is implanted by Me and can only be satisfied by eternal spiritual union with Me.”
“When you look to sources outside of Me to meet these essential needs, you will end up disappointed.”
“All of these self-sufficient habit patterns can be lumped into a single word: flesh.”
“These patterns are stored in the memory banks of your brain and can appear attractive, average, or repulsive, depending on the eye of the beholder.”
“Of course, all flesh patterns are repulsive to Me simply because they exclude Me from the equation.”
“They find their source in I’ve got this! rather than reliant confidence in Me to meet every need.”
“It is important for you to realize, however, that I will never find you repulsive—regardless of the flesh patterns you may exhibit in your daily living.”
“I perfectly separate your true who from your do and want you to realize that I define you by the flawless identity I gave you when you first believed into Me.”
“So rest easy.”
“When you realize you are trying to experience fulfillment apart from Me, repent.”
“Change your attitude from out-sourcing to trusting dependence on My indwelling Spirit.”
“You were made for this!”
Dear reader, if you are worn out from trying to earn or deserve love, value, and acceptance, why don’t you decide today to start receiving and enjoying the unconditional love, value, and acceptance that Jesus has for you?
