God Believes in You
“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit–fruit that will last–and so that whatever you ask in My name the Father will give you.” (John 15:16)
Have you ever heard the saying “You may not believe in God, but God believes in you.”
God sees it all. The good, the bad, the joys, the sins. He wants us to come to Him. There is a reason He saved Noah and His family from the flood, and there is a reason He gave the life of His son, Jesus, so that we could be forgiven. There is nothing you can do that will stop God from loving you! Isn’t that amazing when you think about it?!
You can disappoint Him and sadden Him when you turn away or avoid Him, but You cannot stop Him from loving you.
Psalm 8:3,4 says “When I consider the stars, which you have ordained, What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him?” The implication from this scripture is that God takes the time and effort to look our way and to be involved in our lives. God believes we are worth his love/the bother and the concern.
We are someone special in God’s eyes. In Psalms 8 verse 5 it says God crowned us with "glory" and "honor." Imagine that. We have authority over all the other living things in this world that God created. That is a wonderful responsibility. God believes in us enough to give us the assignment for caring wisely for other living creatures on this planet.
What more does God believe about us as human beings? James 1:2-4 gives us another insight. God believes we are capable of handling the tests and challenges of life that inevitably come our way. God believes we are capable of trusting him -- that he loves to help us, that we can be bold in our asking for assistance and that we can believe without reservations God is there for us even when the trouble is not removed from our lives. God also believes we are capable of doing what is good. -Micah 6:8
That is who we are in God’s eyes! He believes in you!
James 1:18 says “Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we may be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.”
If you are on the fence right now, wondering how God can believe you have anything left to give, know that God has already chosen you just like the scriptures above tells us. Everything God has ever done tells of His love for us.
I want to share some lyrics with you to a song called “God Believes in You” by Ted Winn
I know they hurt you
Said you would never make it
Some did desert you
You feel you can't take it
But He didn't bring you this far to let you fail
Cause God believes in you
Sometimes life pressures they get so heavy
But you can't give up and forfeit your destiny
See he gave you dreams and now you must pursue
God Believes, God Believes, Yes he does
And that's why you made it through, through your storms
God was on your side, protecting you all along
And whatever he promised you, he will
Listen, God believes
I want to speak to your heart today. Listen, you shall Prevail God is for you. He won't let you fail, help me say You shall, prevail, God is for you. And he won't let you fail,
No weapon formed against you, will be able to prosper, God is for you.
You're more than a conqueror, you've got victory
God is fighting for you, God is fighting for you
That's why you made it the storm. He was on your side, protecting you, covering you.
God believes, God believes, God believes In you
I'm telling you God believes
Yes, he does. I want you to know No matter who walked away
God is faithful to stay O my friend Want you to know
He believes, He believes in you
You are special to him
You are, God believes in you!
