Has Anyone Told You that You are Special

(Deuteronomy 7:8; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:4,5)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, YOU are my provider. You know my daily needs. You promised to care what I need each day for life....food, shelter, clothing. I put my trust in you. You own the cattle on a thousand hills, and I come to you today to thank you for providing for my needs in the past, and knowing my needs today. Today, I come to you, asking you to meet those needs as you promised in Your Word! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

This is a very short and simple word for YOU today, but powerful in its truth! Many days we get so consumed with our lives, that we lose sight of just how special we are. Life is filled with many problems and because of those problems, we sometimes get down and blame ourselves.

Not a day goes by that we don't fail in some way, and so many people tend to live in self-condemnation. Let me encourage you today that God created you in His own image and made each person uniquely different. No matter what you are going through, what you may have done, God still loves you and in His eyes, YOU ARE SPECIAL!!!

If you haven’t heard these words in a while, maybe in a long time, hear them now....YOU ARE SPECIAL!!!

Forgiving others can be very difficult, especially when they have hurt us in some way. However, just as difficult, even more so, is forgiving ourselves! The Bible tell us that we have all sinned and fallen short of God's glory.

There are no perfect people. But our God is ready to forgive us and cleanse us from all our sin, if we will simply confess our sins to Him and repent. My friend, you cannot change what has already been done, but you have total control over what you will do from this point forward.

I pray that this day, you will find freedom in the fact that you are special and God loves you. What may have happened in your life before is behind you. You need to stand on God's promise that if you are willing to confess those past sins and ask His forgiveness, He will forgive you and give you a fresh slate. If our God is willing to forgive you, then isn't it time you forgive yourself?

Let today be the first day in your knowledge that you are special. God has a plan and purpose for your life. Go forward to accomplish His plan for your life, knowing that you are His child and He loves you unconditionally.

I love you and care about you so much. No matter what anyone may tell you, YOU ARE SPECIAL. Special to me, but more important, special to God. HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH!

I don't care what you are facing today or what the issues may be, take a few moments out of your day and just reflect on the FACT that in God's eyes . . .YOU ARE SPECIAL!!!
