Day # 23 : Believes All Things { HeArT to hEaRt }

Day #23  : Believes All Things

{ Love believes all things... }
1 Corinthians 13:7

I want you to know that if you've ever felt like no one believed in you, it was of the adversary. Here is some kicking for the lie. Here is some truth you need to hear... your Creator, the living God, believes in you.

I'm starting this one off straight at the heart. Just in case I loose you along the way :) I still desire you to grab that piece of info and tuck it into your heart.

At this point I could write "enough said" and it would be. But I need proof of the previous declaration and I'm thinking you probably do also. Pudding, that this living God has any belief in you, might need a little proof.

Love believes all things.
Love then, is inspiring.
When God mentions his "love believes all things" it makes us sure He will never give up, even on us! Let's make it personal... He will not leave you as you are. He believes, because He has already overcome. He's the forerunner who has already overcome any defeat. When you are His, you become nothing less than an OvErCoMeR in Christ.

{ For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world. } 1 John 5:4

God is certain that you are able. With His foundation of love as your rock, you can! Can you imagine what we would feel if every time we were tempted to scorn ourselves, we would announce with assurance, an "I believe" statement coming from the God who believes all things?

Imagine it.......................

Instead of...
         " you slipped and messed up again".
You hear....
          "I believe you are better than your mistakes".

You tune out this lie...
          "you will never be able to overcome your past".
With this truth...
         " I believe you are more than that".

In place of this scorn...
         " you will never matter".
You trust God's affirming...
          "YoU matter to me".
The demise of lives affected by the absence of knowing they are believed in is very real. We all have witnessed lives of those who were convinced nobody believed in them, break and crumble. But I have also seen lives of those who felt and knew the reality that someone believed in them, flourish.

There was a 14 year old girl who was minding her own business, when an angel showed up to deliver some news.  She was told that she would accomplish something great for her Lord.  This poor, virgin girl, was to be the mother of Christ Jesus. What an impossible sounding mission! The encouraging news from the messenger, was concluded with this:

{ For with God nothing will be impossible. }
Luke 1:37

Little, unworthy, Mary flourished and succeeded... because she accepted that all things were possible with God's foundation of love.

The only opinion ever that matters is that of God Almighty. You are believed in!  Your Creator sees beyond your mess. He sees past the mistakes and the regret. He sees yesterday, but knows you have tomorrow. He knows your hope and He sees your victory up ahead. Why would He be so confident?
Because nothing is impossible with Him.

He knows the plans He made for you and He knows you will get there. Why? Because He already claimed your victory.

His love believes all things.
 " All" leaves nothing out.
  "All" includes you.

God gets the final say.
