You Matter to God

You do matter to God! He knows what you are going through and wants to meet your every need.

Do you sometimes feel like you are just a face in a crowd or a number in a system? Like you are identified by your social security number? Even when you see the doctor, you are called by your queue number. If you feel depersonalized and dehumanized, that is exactly how the devil wants you to feel — that you do not matter much to anyone, especially to God.

But you do matter to God! He calls you by name (John 10:3). He knows exactly what you are going through and where you are hurting. He sees you and cares for you, just as He cared for the people when He first walked on earth. Beloved, Jesus came a long way from heaven for you (John 6:38). You certainly matter to Him. He came to give you life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) You are not just a face in a crowd or a number. No, He knows you by name and has a personal love for you. And in spite of the mess which you might be in, He wants to meet your every need and make your life beautiful! You matter to Him so much He left his home, stripped His clothes off and died on the cross for you. He loves you dearly.

Jesus …he calls his own sheep by name… He calls on you right now.
