Did You know…


Hey you…yea, YOU! I’ve been learning a lot of things recently, and honestly I think you should hear what they are because they have impacted, encouraged, and refreshed my heart so much these past few months the Lord has been revealing these things to me. So yea, here you go…

Did you know…
You’re forgiven? I mean, completely, totally, inconceivably, nothing can ever undo this kind of forgiven, forgiven? God does not look at you and see every sin you have ever committed, He sees His son’s blood, He sees forgiveness and sacrifice washed over every part of you. Your sin is forgiven, done away with, as far as the east is from the west. Forever.
Did you know…
You are completely new, a new creation, not just your old broken, dirty self pieced back together, but rather a completely new creation? God did not just patch you up, He made you new, reconstructed in the image of Jesus Christ.
Did you know…
God longs, and is jealous for, a relationship with you? He desires to be in intimate community with you. You were not meant to be lonely, you were designed to belong to a family that has fellowship and love and welcomes you regardless of anything you have ever done, or felt, or seen, or thought.
Did you know…
“The testing of your faith produces perseverance?” so, “let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
Did you know…
You are not, and you never will be alone? Jesus Christ, the Living God, loves you. Even when you feel as if you are suffocating because you think you are alone in your pain, suffering, anger, or confusion, the Lord intercedes on your behalf. He does this because He calls you His. You. Are. Loved.
Did you know…
“…that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creating, will be able to separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Did you know…
God weeps when your church leaves you feeling anything less than essential, vital, accepted, encouraged, prepared, sustained, and loved…and that God has more for you?
Did you know…
Our Father does not simply tolerate you, rather He delights in you.
Did you know…
You past mistakes, sins, regrets, secrets, shame, guilt, hopelessness, addictions, they are all tiny in the sight of the Lord because He is so much bigger than them?
Did you know…
You are restored, redeemed, beloved, righteous, holy, called, names, approved, accepted, sent, and worthy, despite how you may feel, or what you’ve been told, or despite the lies the enemy has woven and convinced you of?
Did you know…
There is no way on this earth that you can ever earn God’s love? No matter how many good deeds you do, not matter how kind you are to others, no matter how many worship songs you know, no matter how often you go to church or tithe, or memorize scripture, etc. there is nothing you can do that will ever make God love you more than He already does. He loves you for you, not because of what you’ve done, but because of what His Son did for you. You are his child. 

What new truth and new revelation of Jesus have you recently realized?
