You Matter 5.26.22
You Matter 5.26.22

“ I have chosen you

and will not throw you away.

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.

Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you.

I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”


God wants you. He is with you. He is your God. He will help you.


You may feel all alone in the world. You may think no one listens to you. The Lord listens, He hears, and He is acting on your behalf. God will bring glory to His name through you. Lift up your head and give thanks!

“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes.h There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)


We will not spend eternity "in Heaven." When the Lord returns we will live in a new Heaven and on a new earth. It will be a place like no other. Don't worry about spending forever playing the harp on a cloud. We will have real lives on earth. But . . . it will be earth vastly different from what we now know.


God will dwell with us ad the painful things of life will be gone. Our new land will be a place where there is no crying, pain, death, or mourning. This will be better than any exotic vacation. And . . . it will never end! We don't need to be afraid of dying . . . it is the doorway to new life!

“Whom have you been defying and ridiculing?
Against whom did you raise your voice?
At whom did you look with such haughty eyes?
It was the Holy One of Israel!”

These words are from God's conversation with the Assyrian King, Sennacherib. He asks a question we would be wise to take to heart. When we sin; when we disregard God's commands, when we rebel against Him in any way, it is good to ask "Who is it we are ignoring or defying?" He is the Holy One! "The One in whom we live, move, and have our being." (Acts 17:28)

When we sin we show disrespect for our Lord. We act as if He is nothing! It is a huge mistake!

A healthy fear of the Lord will keep us close to Him. This in turn, will deliver us from all other fears.
