God’s gift to us

Our worth is not determined by how others treat us or what they say about us. It is not based on our clothing brand or our homes’ square footage. Our worth to Him is priceless when God looks upon us because it was bought with the price of His Son’s blood. He sent His Son to die for the sins of the whole world—not just a select few. Regardless of how well we try to live, we all sin. The good news is that God loves each sinner, regardless of the sin. He allowed Jesus to die so we may live in Eternity with Him one day.

However, I think seeing us waste our lives breaks God’s heart. He created us all with an important purpose that goes beyond our desires. We all have unique gifts. God will bless our efforts if we show up every day and offer our gifts to the world. He needs us all.

In the past, I have used my feelings of unworthiness as an excuse not to do God’s work. I listened to every word the devil said and even embraced his lies. God’s word, however, disputes the lies of the devil. The good news is I can choose which one I will serve: God or the devil.

God is all-powerful. Therefore, He knows how to help us. While our job might seem overwhelming, God knows how to help us do His work. We have to seek Him. Giving up before we even try is not pleasing to God. He wants us to step out in faith, knowing that when our strength falters, His strength will begin.

I remember repeatedly telling him that I couldn’t write a book. God, however, would not accept my excuses. Finally, when I turned it all over to Him and stepped out in faith, He blessed me to write one word at a time. Sometimes, I type one word and sit and wait for the next one—never fully knowing how it will turn out. I have learned that it is not my knowledge or wisdom that God is seeking from me. All He wants is my obedience. If I obey Him, He will teach me everything else.

I am the strongest when I surrender to God. When I can say, here I am, God. Use me according to Your will. Then, He can use me.

If I can do it alone, then it’s not God’s work.

Sometimes, it’s wonderful to pause and realize the wealth inside of us all. God loves us. He knows our name and cares for us. Every day, we face some danger, and His angels protect us. God has grace for every need. We are never alone. Nothing can separate us from Him.

When the world’s hardships bring us down, we must remember whose child we are. We are a child of the King. Isn’t it wonderful to have favor with the God of the whole world?

Giving God my heart and accepting His gift of salvation was the greatest decision I’ve ever made. At that moment, I traded death and eternal misery for eternal life with the Lord. One day, I will see His face and the glory He created for me.

Until then, I will continue to walk in His light and tell everyone who will listen about the love and peace inside of me. I desire to guide others to the Lord so they may also accept this amazing gift. God has an abundance. This gift is free. He already paid the cost for you and me. I’ve accepted my gift from Him. Have you?
