Where Do You Go For Affirmation?

Dear Friends,


We all want to be loved, accepted and affirmed. We look for it in all kinds of places, yet there's only one place it can be found and that place is in God. It's in relationship with him that we know we are unconditionally loved, accepted and approved. 
Our search for significance, security and self-worth is found in knowing who we are and whose we are. Who are we? We are children of God. He has adopted us into his family. He has chosen us. He loves us. He approves of us.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. Ephesians 1:4-5 (NLT)
Whose are we? We are God's, we belong to him. Not only did he created us, he also paid a high price for us. We are precious to him.

Dear Friends, 


I don't know anyone who enjoys or finds it easy to have to wait. We live in a culture where we expect everything to be instant. Whatever we want, we want it immediately. We enjoy instant coffee. We send a text message and receive a reply within seconds. We email someone, knowing they will receive it immediately we press 'send'.
Yet, in God's Kingdom, much of our lives may be spent waiting. It was true for the men and women of faith in the Bible. And it's true for us too.

All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it.
