Come as you are

                                                                                    DON’T BE AFRAID OF YOU!

He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.  PASLM 33:15 NKJV


God created everything about you to be unique, and He wants you to build an honest relationship with Him based on who you really are, not who you think you should be or who other people say you should be.


We relate to God as individuals.  When we talk to God, we are not supposed to check our individually at the door of the prayer closet.  We need to go before Him just the way we are and give Him the pleasure of enjoying the company of the “original” He has made each one of us to be.  God  enjoys meeting us where we are, developing a personal relationship with us and helping us grow to become everything He wants us to be.


Our verse for today teaches us that God has fashioned our hearts individually.  As we develop our individual styles of communication with God, we can learn from people who may be more experienced.


Most people are afraid to not be like everyone else; many are more comfortable following specified rules than daring to follow the Spirits leading.  When we follow man-made rules, we please people, but when we step out and follow God’s spirit, we please Him.  So remember, come as you are.


                                                Love God Today: Don’t think your relationship with God has to look like someone else’s.  He made you to be unique, and He wants to relate to you just the way you are.
