The biggest challenge most people have when it comes to knowing and believing what their Creator really thinks about them, is they don’t know whether its true or not. The good news is, you can find out exactly what He thinks of you and its all based on The Truth.
You may be wondering where you can even find The Truth now a days. It’s easy. You can find it right in the Bible. In John 17:17 it says, “… Your word is truth”. (NKJV) Since that is the case, then let’s find out what God’s thoughts are about you.
Jeremiah 29:11 gives us great insights into His thinking, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope”. (NKJV) The keyword in this verse is peace. It means completeness, safety, health, welfare, friendship and contentment. He is also giving us a future and a hope. That is simply amazing.
Would you also believe that He has the same thoughts about you as He does His Son Jesus? Let’s take a look at 1 John 4:17, “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world”. (NKJV) If you get a hold of this part of this verse, it will transform your life. God is comparing us just as He sees Jesus. So when He is thinking of you, He is reminding Himself of how He created you in His Image. (Genesis 1:26)
So consider for a moment what the Father is seeing in His Son. Since you are created in His exact image, your Heavenly Father sees how amazing you truly are. He sees how much value, potential and worth that is inside of you. God loves and accepts you just as you are, without any change required. Why? 1 John 4:8 tells us why, “for God is love”. (NKJV) He loves you unconditionally because HE IS LOVE.
The next time you wonder what the Lord really thinks about you, just go to The Truth and find out for yourself. When you do, it will transform your life forever. Every time you open up the Bible you will see more and more of what God’s opinion of you is. Why not find out right now?
