Do you know just how precious you are to God? Do you know His love? Do you know that His mercies are there for you everyday? Do you know that He knows you by name and that He sent His only Son to the cross for you? Do you know that there is no amount of money or good deeds that are needed to please Him as He simply wants you to know Him, accept His Son as your Savior, and have a personal relationship with Him?
As I awoke this morning, the song, “Mary did you know?” was running through my head. There are many versions out there, but my personal favorite is sung by Donny Osmond. The song got me to thinking that there are so many people out there who just do not know God, and this includes those of us who have accepted Jesus into our hearts – including me.
We think of God with our earthly minds, and try to figure Him out, There is no need to figure Him out. All we really need to do is talk to Him, make Him part of everything we do. Tell Him our plans, our hopes, our dreams and ask Him what His plans, hopes and dreams for us are (even though He already knows the plans that He has for us). When we sin, or do something that we know is wrong, we try to figure out how we can make up for it, or get back in His good graces. We have to stop thinking this way. There is no way our earthly thoughts can ever come up with the right words or actions to take our sins away. We have to get out of our own way and let God guide us, direct us and lead us. At least that is what I believe.
I pray that today, and everyday, that you know that you know that you know Him.
