If you are joining me here today from Proverbs 31’s Encouragement for Today, welcome! I’m giving away a copy of my DVD message based on my book “His Revolutionary Love”. Keep reading for details on how you can win below.
In my devotion today, I made this statement:
“What our girls long for is to be known. To feel like they matter. To believe someone sees them as valuable and significant. Maybe that is why God created mothers — to be the conduit for the power of His truth to our children.
It is our place to teach our daughters exactly how He sees them. We can be the voice that says, “…out of all creation, [you] became his prized possession.” James 1:18 (NLT) When looking in the mirror picking themselves apart, may they be reminded of God’s promises and prayers we have spoken over them.”
I am so glad that many of you moms and small group leaders are doing just that this summer by going thorough “His Revolutionary Love” with your girl. It’s not too late to sign up…we’re just covering chapter two! Just put your email address in the small box above and you will start receiving the posts and videos in your email box automatically. You can also join us on FaceBook at Lynn Cowell’s Online Bible Studies.
So how exactly does God see our girls…and us too? He doesn’t see the flaws we see; He sees the finished product. He sees the girl and woman that each day He is drawing to Himself. He sees the one that is so in love with Him that her desire is to become like Him. The one thing He doesn’t see is a hopeless cause. He doesn’t see someone who is unlovable or beyond His reach.
It brings me so much peace knowing that even though Jesus knows my deepest thoughts, my darkest deeds, and my disappointing attitudes it doesn’t change his loving thoughts toward me. Why does this bring me peace? Just knowing that He knows me and loves me still gives me the courage to keep coming back for His love and forgiveness even when I mess up.
Friend, this is the truth that we want our girls to grab hold of this week. They will make mistakes; it’s inevitable because they are human. But no mistake is ever too big to make Him quit loving and drawing us.
