You are a Big Deal

Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10

You are a big deal to God!  He created you and loves you even more than we as people can love.  More than a mother for her child and more than a Grandparent for their grandchildren.  That is a lot!  The truth is that God loves all people more than we could ever imagine.  That can be a bit overwhelming and at times could even make you feel insignificant.  But it just isn’t the case.  God knows and loves each one of us individually.  Like a parent with many children of their own, they love them all the same amount in their unique design and personality.  Each on of us is unique to God our Father.  He doesn’t just lump us all together into one category. He sees each one of us as individuals and know the distinct and exclusive giftings of all His people.

Today’s reading shows us just how valuable we are to our Father.  Jesus told a parable about a woman that had ten silver coins.  Equal in value, shape, color and size.  Yet when she lost one, she set aside all that she had until that one was found and back in her protection and possession.  She was not willing to be satisfied that she still had nine others.  That one coin didn’t lose its significance to that woman just as we do not lose our importance to our Father in heaven.  When Satan tricked people at the beginning of time, he thought that he had stolen all that was valuable to God.  He didn’t realize that God would not stop until He got His most valuable creation back.  The people that He had created in His very own image and likeness.  It is true that not all will come back to Him, but He has made the provision for all to enter back into His Kingdom through the sacrifice and blood of His Son, Jesus.  Now, He will stop at nothing to make sure that every person has the opportunity to choose to be back with Him for all eternity.

This passage even says that when someone turns their life back over to God and repents from going in a direction away from Him, there is a great rejoicing and celebration in the heavens over that one soul.  Just as it was for the woman that found her coin.  God makes a big deal over you.  Not just when you receive His great salvation, but every day that you take a breath in the world.

Today I want to encourage you to trust God with your life!  He loves you and there isn’t anything He wouldn’t do to take care of you.  He makes a big deal over your life in heaven and He will rush in to rescue you when you fall into trouble, every time.

Today’s scripture reading: Luke 15:8-10

8 “Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? 

9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ 

10 Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
