How do you prioritize your oneness with Jesus? Is His nearness to you the place of confidence you live out of, believing you belong to Him?
Trust you Belong
John 10:28-30 says “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
There is not a circumstance that can separate you from the love of the Good Shepherd. In your best moments and in your worst the love of the Father sustains your connection to Him. Live out of this victory and create the foundation of your life on Jesus’s promise to you. To belong to God is to possess the eternal protection of His presence and guidance in your life.
Believe in God’s promise to never leave or forsake you. Jesus tells the disciples that He will be with them until the end of the earth. Because of His victory on the cross, we have been grafted into His family. The Psalmist writes, “Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close” (Psalms 27:10). You can believe this truth for yourself today. From this, we get to live out our most authentic and powerful lives with Christ, trusting that we are held regardless of what happens.
Trusting and believing in God’s hand on our life gives the confidence we need to pursue the dreams He has for us. It compels us to run the races worthy of our calling, not looking to the right or to the left for reassurance from others. We get to look in the Father’s eyes, again and again, to be reminded, who is running alongside us. There is destiny and purpose in your life, you belong.
