Some Body Up There Loves You

Depressed? Feeling unloved, lonely, left out, forgotten, unnoticed? Your Creator Father loves you and notices you. 

Recently I met a former co-worker and remembered all our conversations, she seemed like she could use some TLC. How many times does a friend brighten our day and encourage us?

Before you were born I knew you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus in John 3:16 (NKJV).

  • “You number my wanderings;
  • put my tears into Your bottle;
  • are they not in Your book?” Psalm 56:8.

“In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them; 

“In His love and in His pity He redeemed them;

“And He bore them and carried them all the days of old.” Isaiah 63:9.

Jeremiah 31:3-5: “The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: ‘Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

“Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.

“You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food.” 

 

Jesus’s Full Blessings

Jesus’s full blessings will supercede all your hopes and expectations.

Luke 2:34-35, “And Simeon blessed them and said unto Mary His mother, Behold, this Child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against: (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV), “For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

“A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; He will not falter or be discouraged till He establishes justice on earth. In His teaching the islands will put their hope.”” Isaiah 42:3-4 (NIV).

John 3:16-17 (NKJV), “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Death’s Not An Option

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in Him.” said Jesus in John 3:14-15 (NIV).

And this is the will of Him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” says Jesus in John 6:40 (KJV).

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV).

“If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” Romans 14:8 (NIV).

You’re Alive!

The Word is alive, Holy Spirit is inside us who are born again of the Spirit.  Don’t hide God’s truth or dumb down the truth.  We never die.  We have everlasting life (Jn 3:16).  “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe,” 1Timothy 4:10.

John 3:3-8:  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  The wind blows where it lists, and you hear the sound thereof, but can’t tell whence it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

John 3:15-16, “That whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.  For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

John 6:63, “It’s the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

John 14:15-17, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.  And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees Him not, neither knows Him: but you know him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you.”
