Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you Jeremiah 1:5, AMP.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Did you know that God was thinking about you before you were ever born? He knew everything about you before you were in your mothers womb. He created you on purpose, for a purpose. He carefully planned who you would be, the color of your hair, the color of your eyes and skin. He gave you gifts, talents and abilities to be used for His glory. He took one look at you and said, Approved.
No matter how you may be feeling right now, no matter whos approval you didnt get on this earth, know that Almighty God loves you and approves of you today. Theres nothing you can do now or ever to change that. You may be thinking, Ive made so many mistakes, how can God approve of me? Understand that when God sees you, He separates you from your behavior. He may not approve of your actions all the time, but He desires to help you grow and make better choices.
Today, receive His love and acceptance. Allow Him to work in your life. Allow His love to empower and strengthen you because you are approved and equipped to live in victory all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for approving me and empowering me by Your love. I open my heart and mind to Your truth and invite You to have Your way in my life. Remove anything that would hold me back from all You have in store in Jesus name. Amen.
