Friends, nothing can encourage our hearts faster and deeper than going straight to God’s Word to see what God says about who we are in Him! Never doubt His perfect and everlasting LOVE for you. As a believer in Jesus Christ, our old selves have gone away, and He has made us new.
Maybe in the past, your sense of worth was formed by how other people in your circle of influence treated you. It is common to base God’s love off our own experiences with other people; therefore, seeking truth in God’s word is KEY to understanding how God truly sees and feels about you.
TODAY, I hope you will join me in soaking up these delicious verses. Why not start a list and add to them as you continue to find out more of who you are in Him?
Adopted & An Heir
God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.

And since you are his child, God has made you his heir. Galatians 4:5-7

If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously, and if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Romans 12: 6-8
