I was getting really frustrated this week and then I stopped to remind myself of this truth. If He cares enough about me to know the number of hairs on my head, then I can relax! Even the most frustrating of situations are easy for God.
As I acknowledge who my Lord is- even before others, I can also rest assured that He is acknowledging me before the Father in heaven. He loves us so much.
What’s in it for Jesus- the Christ and the Savior of mankind? He is in it for the completion of the Father’s will.
He knows that I am a very small and minute creature (in the scope of planets, galaxies and the universe), yet He sees worth in me. He sees worth in YOU.
In fact, we are God’s workmanship created for good works in Christ. (Listen to the song by Kaith Green – link below).
Keith Green (singing Ephesians 2:10)
Today, I’m resting, relaxing and prayerfully considering what it means to truly believe that- Teresa #myrest #mypeace #Heisourpeace #receivethisgift
Ephesians 2:8-10 (ESV)
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- 9 not by works,so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork,created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Matthew 10:26-33 (ESV)
26 “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.[c] 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?[d] And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
