The Width Of God's Love for You

"And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God" (Ephesians 3:18-19 NLT).

"If you want confidence, then understand how much you matter to God. If God loves you, who cares what anybody else thinks."

The width of God's love extends across the entire world and includes all people, everyone he has created: "The Lord is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made" (Psalm 145:17 NIV, emphasis mine). God loves the whole world (John 3:16).

God never made a person that he didn't love. He made you; he loves you; and God doesn't make junk! He loves you unconditionally. He loves you very, very, very, very, very much.

Everybody matters to God; in fact, we see in the life of Jesus that he even loves the unlovely, and those who may feel unlovable. Do you want to know the secret of self esteem? Here it is: If you want confidence, then understand how much you matter to God. If God loves you, who cares what anybody else thinks.

Because God loves you, there's no need to prove your self worth. We don't need props anymore to make us feel good about ourselves. We don't have to wear certain kinds of clothes to make us feel like we're okay, or drive a certain kind of car to prop up our faltering egos. We don't need status symbols anymore.
