What Does God Say About Me?
Today there are so many labels that people try to out on us. Some of these might include: lazy, not smart enough, not good enough, or too tall. Have you ever heard any of these before? Maybe you've labeled yourself with a few of these. Let this be your reminder: you are not who or what people call you. You are who God says you are. Here are a few words God has called you:
Chosen: "We know, dear brothers and sisters, that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own people.”
1 Thessalonians 1:4
Blessed: "Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ" Ephesians 1:3
Redeemed: "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace" Ephesians 1:7
Set Free: "For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery" Galatians 5:1
Accepted: "Receive one another, then, just as Christ also received you, to God's glory"Romans 15:7
Loved: "So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him" 1 John 4:16
So the next time you're tempted to believe a label that someone has placed on you, remember what God has called you.
