Daily Devotional - 1st September, 2012 - Why are you Worried?


Daily Devotional - 1st September, 2012

God knows the future from the beginning. So then why do we find ourselves so worried about life? Maybe that statement doesn't apply to you, but I know many wonder about the value of their life. Or rather, they wonder whether their life is having any eternal significance. "Is my life actually achieving anything of worth?" If you have been wondering this lately, I have a word for you.

Let me say, it's not helpful to play a tape over and over in your head that questions your value in Christ. What matters, is that your life is IN christ, not what you achieve FOR Christ. God's love for you is not conditional upon your perceived 'success' or otherwise in ministry. God's love for you is a free gift from God, and actually, nothing can separate you from that love (Romans 8:38-39). Man's opinion of you does not necessarily match God's opinion of you. In fact, God's opinion of you is what matters.

God is sovereign. God knows you future. Rest in him and deepen your revelation of the absolute extravagant love of God.

Ponder: Consider the fact that God knows who you are, and loves you intimately.

Bible: 1 John 4:7-12
