In Isaiah Chapter 46, verses 3-7, God the Father says,”Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” [NIV Bible]
This Scripture tells us that God loves us from the very beginning of our lives, when we are first conceived, and all the way through our old age. We are valued by God throughout our lives. Our worth to God doesn’t decrease with our age. That’s because God’s love isn’t dependent on us looking a certain way or being able to do all of the things we used to do when we were younger. The world values youth, looks and accomplishments. God values people who believe that His Son took the punishment for all of our sins so that we would be able to have a close relationship with Him. We don’t have to be glamorous, handsome or pretty. We don’t need to be a certain weight or make a certain amount of money in order for Him to see us as precious. God’s love is truly unconditional.
God wants to love you, guide you and help you all of the days of your life. Your standing with God is secure when you accept Jesus as your Savior. God wants us to trust in His love for us. He wants us to believe that He will help us when we are facing tough times, and not to doubt that He is working behind the scenes to bring good things into our lives. Whatever you may be facing, God knows, and He always wants to help you. Talk to Him, tell Him your feelings, VENT! Your relationship with God is not tenuous. He won’t reject you for being honest. If you are angry or unforgiving, talk to Him about it. Ask Him what to do, and ask Him for His help to do it. If you are in the grip of an addiction, understand that many people are! God has heard it all, and He won’t be shocked at anything you have to say. Above all, God accepts you and He is always willing to give you a fresh start. What better time to start drawing close to God by trusting Him with all of your life, being open and honest with Him and believing that He will take care of you.
