Loved, Wanted & Necessary
I believe the reason a lot of people do not have an intimate relationship with Jesus and are living way below Kingdom standards isn't because they don't care or don't want it. I don't even think it's a lack of faith in God or His power to change lives. Most I have ministered to have a poor self image and a lack of faith in themselves. What I mean by that is, they don't see themselves as Christ sees them. They measure God's love for them based on how deserving they feel they are, and they only approach the throne room to the degree they feel God would allow them to come, which is usually on the outside looking in...
What we need to realize is that not one of us could ever be good enough to deserve the sacrifices Jesus has made nor do we deserve the right to enter boldly into His throne room!! You see, when we receive Christ as our Lord and Savior, it's no longer our sin, weakness and failures that God sees, but the shed blood of His son and that's what make us righteous!
The Word says that He is not a respector of persons. That means He doesn't value one more than another. He doesn't play favorites nor does He think of you as second best. What He's done for me He desires to do for you and though our callings and giftings may be different, one is not more valuable than the other.
What I feel He wants me to relay to you today is just how much He loves you, desires fellowship with you and sees you as a part of His end time plan. Jesus wants to bless you with everything He has paid for on the cross and promised in His Word, but even more than that, He wants YOU!!
He loves you so much that He's beckoning you to come into His presence so He can shower you with His mercy and love! You are beautiful, unique and incredibly delightful to your King. He has none other like you and no one can do what He's called YOU to do!!! God doesn't make mistakes! He created you for a purpose and it starts with spending time with Him!!!
As you flourish in the throne room and study His Word, He will give you the strength, ability and direction you need. It will all flow from a place of relationship and love, not dread, fear and obligation! He has a specific plan for you... draw close enough to hear it and become anointed and equipped to do what He's called you to do! You are loved, wanted and necessary, for such a time as this!
Esther 4:14 (NKJV) For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Romans 2:11 (KJV) For there is no respect of persons with God.
Romans 5:8 (KJV) But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 3:23-26 (TPT) For we all have sinned and are in need of the glory of God. Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favor now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin! Jesus’ God-given destiny was to be the sacrifice to take away sins, and now he is our mercy seat because of his death on the cross. We come to him for mercy, for God has made a provision for us to be forgiven by faith in the sacred blood of Jesus. This is the perfect demonstration of God’s justice, because until now, he had been so patient—holding back his justice out of his tolerance for us. So he covered over the sins of those who lived prior to Jesus’ sacrifice. And when the season of tolerance came to an end, there was only one possible way for God to give away his righteousness and still be true to both his justice and his mercy—to offer up his own Son. So now, because we stand on the faithfulness of Jesus, God declares us righteous in his eyes!
