Do You Know Your Value?

Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!
Luke 12:24

A boy I know worries every day that his mom will forget to pick him up from school. She's never forgotten him. But he still thinks about this every day. 

One particular day, he took cookies to school in one of his mom's plastic containers. It was an old container that might bring 50 cents at a garage sale.

However, he practiced his positive self-talk by saying that his mom would definitely pick him up because she wanted her container back. This actually seemed to help him get relief from his worry.

As I heard the story, I thought how many times I doubt God's love and provision for me.

Then, I remembered Luke 12 and how God tells us that we are so valuable to Him. He even knows how many hairs we have on our heads!

In Zephaniah, we learn that God delights in us and sings over us.

Psalm 34:10 says those who seek God will lack no good thing.

In the gospels, we read how God sent His only son, Jesus, to die for us so that we might have eternal life.

Jesus tells us in John 14 that he is preparing a place for us.

Dear ones, God loves us more than we can understand.

I find that I must meditate on verses like this regularly to remember God's love. I'm thankful that He knows I'm forgetful and doubtful. He doesn't hold that against us.

Lord, help me to trust in your love and not doubt.
