You are favored as you worship a very personal God. Through His grace and mercy He walks side by side with each of us, sharing Himself as a blessing.
God is involved in every aspect of your life.
Matthew 10:30 states: And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Now that is personal! I am not this involved in anyone’s life to that degree, including my husband’s and daughter’s. I can hardly keep my own schedule under control, let alone know every move they make on a daily basis. Yet our God watches over each and every one of His children; lovingly staying involved as much as we allow.
God planned your life before you were born.
Were you ever disappointed because something you wanted did not happen? Only to find something even more wonderful came along? God is constantly in the process of subtracting bad and adding good to our lives. All for our betterment. God constantly uses situations that are unpopular with us, as learning experiences to help and grow in His way.
God created a beautiful place for you to live.
It is by faith, not material proof, Christians believe the first chapter of Genesis, which starts by stating: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
I like to consider myself a bit of an artist, however, in order to create, I need “stuff.” Paint, tile, rulers, wood, photographs, perhaps just a piece of paper and a pencil. I can not create anything without the use of something that was already created. Even scientific cloning requires the use of some part of the article that is to be cloned. Only through God’s superior being, did He take the abyss (which He also created!) and create within it.
God is elaborate in all that He is and all that He does for you.
The word elaborate means: planned or executed with care and exactness; detailed. This can be found true in the over 300 prophesies of Jesus Christ. Working within God’s exactness, many prophets of the Old Testament foretold Jesus’ ancestry, birth, life and death. They also proclaimed why it was necessary for Jesus to come.
God originated an elaborate plan for your life to include His son Jesus Christ. God wants you to be full of joy and hope. Just as any loving earthly father carefully executes with detail, God provides for his earthly family.
God’s constant love continually expands as He lives within us.
I on the other hand, am not constant. I live in my own selfish world. I do not love everyone. Certainly not the old guy ahead of me in the Returns line who brought back thirty pieces of hardware that need counting. And I lack forgiveness for anyone who molests a child.
But not God. He perpetually loves us and loves us. He forgives our sin each time we ask; at the same time healing our open wounds caused by that very sin.
And each second of every day God accepts us. . .knowing our flaws. . .knowing our weaknesses. . .knowing our sinful nature. By His mercy and grace He accepts us as His children. You can’t get more personal than that.
If you don’t feel like you have a personal relationship with God, now is the time to invite Him into your life. He loves you deeply, and desires to be invited into your life.
