God is after you, dear friend, in a good way. He loves the masses, but the individual heart He wants to hold as His own.
There are so many things in our culture that can evoke an inferiority complex in people. The barrage of advertisements that make one feel less than if they don’t have what others are offering. The seemingly picture-perfect life displayed on the feeds of social media, causing a longing for what they appear to have, making one feel they don’t measure up to some invisible criteria. The comparison factor of success that is too much alive in this world which causes many to believe they will never be what another is.
That’s good because God created you and me to be us! The masses that come to Him don’t negate the fact that He wants the individual heart – He wants the individual life – He wants the individual you! You make a difference to God! You are important to God!
God will leave the ninety-nine sheep in the wilderness to go after that one which is lost because that one is special to Him (Luke 15:1-7). That one is cared about by Him. That one is loved by Him and He wants that one with Him because to God, they make a difference. God finds joy in just that one heart that will turn to Him, repent, and enter into blessed fellowship with Him.
When the individual heart turns to God through our Lord Jesus Christ, it puts a smile on God’s face and makes the angels rejoice (Luke 15:10) because despite what the world tries to make us believe or feel, each one of us makes a difference to God. You are valuable to God and He loves you more than you could ever know.
