God doesn’t need you, but He still wants you. We desperately need God, but often don’t act like we want Him.
If you really stop and think about this, it truly is amazing… There really is nothing that we can do for God; He doesn’t need us. Yet He desires to have a personal relationship with us, even with knowing all of our shortcomings.
God knew you before you existed. God knew what He was getting into when he created you. That means he already knew your mistakes and shortcomings. He knew all of you. Jeremiah 1:5 says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, Before you were born I set you apart…”
In my leadership recruiting; I recruit based off someone’s potential, not where they are right now. I believe that God does this same thing with us. He knows what we are capable of in the body of Christ; and that person is who he chooses to view us as. I said this to start off this post, but stop, think about how amazing God truly is…
Lets live up to what God saw in us before we existed. This starts with us understanding our desperate need for God. Choose to want God today and every day.
1 Chronicles 16:11
Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually.
