Week Two - Monday Bible Study
What does it mean to know that I am precious in God's sight?
I had made an addition to my weekend blog but decided to add it here for my answer.
Yesterday my ex fiance wrote to tell me he is pursuing a new relationship. When I first read it, I became sick to my stomach... I felt like he kicked me in the gut. You see... I had been praying the prayer of Jabez over Mark for 6 months...
Dear Lord - Bless Mark, increase his territory - watch over him - keep him from evil.... I desired God's BEST FOR MARK..... Until I read that email... I have found someone new......
Bottom line... I still desire God's blessings for his life - in my spirit... but we all know that we battle against flesh and blood. I'm hurt because I wasn't the right one!
All of that to get to my question: What does it mean to know that I'm precious in God's sight?
Answer: That he loves me so unconditionally - he was willing to die for me. In spite of me - my sin - my flaws -
He cares so deeply for me that he will spare me from mistakes as long as my focus is on him and his desire for my life.
TODAY I CAN TRUST Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope!
NO MATTER WHAT I FEEL.... I CAN TRUST THE WORD OF GOD...................PERIOD!
I feel peace and assurance in the fact that I am his precious daughter and he desires and delights in giving me "GOOD GIFTS".............
Be blessed ladies,
