Godâ€™s value system is very different from the value system of the world. In scripture He values harlots, prostitutes and criminals. Today, people are considered to be important for so many different reasons: titles, position, possessions, where you go, what you drive. God cherishes and values you so much, simply because He made you. You are His beloved creationâ€”the apple of His eye; the centre of His world!
Maybe youâ€™re thinking God has too many other important things on His plate to be concerned with your life. But know this, you are Godâ€™s number one priority. Thereâ€™s nothing you can do to be more important or less important to Him. He loves you the same today as He did the day you were born. He values you today, and your value will never change. You are significant. Your life is significant. The things that concern you, concern God, there is nothing too big or too small for His attention.
Today, in the midst of lifeâ€™s busyness, get excited about Godâ€™s love for you. Donâ€™t be hesitant to take your concerns and cares to Him. He loves it when you come to Him, and Heâ€™s ready to receive you with open arms, because you are the apple of His eye!
“Keep me as the apple of Your eyeâ€¦” (Psalm 17:8, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for loving me and making me Your number one priority. Father, thank You for keeping me as the apple of Your eye. God, I open my heart and mind to You, and cast every care on You. I receive Your love for me, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
