GOD WANTS YOU


GOD WANTS YOU

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (NKJV) Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

God wants you!  That is right.  God wants you to have an intimate relationship with Him.  He does not want just one part of you; He wants all of you.  Think of what you get in return.  You get a fellowship with the Creator, the One that made you and me!  He wants all of us so that we can have all of Him.  Now when I say all, I know that God is so huge that it is not possible for any of us to have all of Him, but He wants us to have all that we can handle of Him.

This verse tells us that God wants us to love Him with all of our heart, and all of our soul, and all of our strength.  Well, that is all of us, so my Father wants all of me.  He loves me so dearly that He wants the complete person, and even with all of my shortcomings and all of my distractions, the Creator of the universe loves me and wants all of me.

I am overwhelmed, at times, by the love God has for me.  The Creator of all, (Who does not need anything because He is so complete) loves me so dearly that He wants me to love Him, and this is all because of Jesus.  When Jesus died on the cross, He took all of my shame and my separation from the Father.  He did it so that I could be totally restored to Abba.

This is so over-the-top that it is hard for our little minds to take it in, but this is where we must receive it by faith and not by our feelings.  In other words, if God says that He loves me this intensely, then I am going to live life just like it is so.

So today, do not look at your shortcomings, look to Jesus’ perfection, and know that the Father sees you just like that: complete and totally loved!

CONFESSION:  I love the Lord my God with all of my heart, all of my soul, and all of my strength.  God is truly in love with me, and I am truly in love with Him!
