Your Word for This Day: “I Belong”

Thursday, July 27, 2017 

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”  I Cor. 6:19-20

Have you ever struggled with belonging?  There is something about belonging that gives us security and a false sense of comfort.

We feel out of place when we are left out of a group or ignored by those we care about.  It erodes our self-confidence, and many times, causes us to withdraw and become introverts.

God is the One who put this desire to belong inside of us.  Not only did He put the desire to belong, but He created an avenue for us to belong.

We belong to Jesus. We belong to God.

Others may reject us and cause us to feel unwanted and unloved.  People can be cruel at times, even those closest to us.  That, however, does not extend to God.  God tells us over and over in His word that we belong to Him.

Know today that you are not an outsider.  You have God.

He says that you belong to Him.

Believe it and live it.
