The Accessible God
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9
Just imagine, this is what God says about us. So today, practice saying this to yourself:
"I am God's special possession"
There are a vast number of people on this planet that don't have a clue that this is even possible. That the God of the Universe, who set the moon and the stars in the sky with a word, who keeps it all going....
keeps them going......wants so much for them to turn in His direction, just to open their heart to Him, so He can give them an inheritance that is beyond their wildest imagination. There are so many obstacles thrown in the path of people to prevent this.
Warped concepts of who God is and isn't.
Horrible treatment by people that were supposed to love them, cherish them, make them feel safe. Things they see wrong with the Church.
Jesus came so that we could approach God without reservation. Without fear. He walked in our dust. He wasn't afraid to come down to our dirty planet....To sweat, get tired, deal with the masses.....be God with us.
Jesus removed our roadblocks. He is the accessible God who draws us to the Father. Holds us all together with His Spirit. Let yourself believe that He wants you today.
And say it again with me:
"I am God's special possession." Feels good, doesn't it?
