He’s Looking For You

 

He knows all the reasons you’ve been running from Him.

 

He sees all the things & people that have hurt, betrayed, messed with you, that make you think He isn’t real   –  and if He is, that He doesn’t care.

 

He gets it.

 

He’s not going to sell short your hurt, or downplay the pain & doubt.

He’s simply going to keep looking for you.

However long it takes, wherever you choose to run and hide.

To the ends of the earth, to the end of your rope.

 

He’s going to keep looking for you.

His desire is to show you how much He values you.

To show you His strength and ability to help you.

To save you.

To heal your heart.

 

If even a tiny corner of your heart is looking for Him, He’s going to find you.

The more faithful you are to Him, the stronger He will be for you.

 

Imagine the most powerful set of binoculars. Magnify that about a bazillion times.  That’s how powerful God’s vision is, when He searches for you. He’s looking back and forth, all across the world, seeking hearts that want to be found by Him.

 

He is looking, even right now.

You can come out from hiding.

Let Him find you, heal you, restore you.

 

There is a God, and He’s looking for you.

He Is Praying For You

 

Seriously, right now Jesus is saying a prayer for you.

 

Praying healing, for your hurt.

 

Praying peace, for the chaos that invades your mind & heart.

 

Praying for all the things and people that mean the most to you.

 

Praying very specifically, for you.

 

 

In His letter to you, it says that He lives forever to intercede with God on your behalf.

 

 

Try to get a picture of that.

 

Every moment of every day, no matter what you’re doing, no matter where you are.

 

He is praying for you.

 

Jesus is kneeling right now, asking God to take care of you.

 

To help you make the right decisions.

 

To heal the hurt you feel in your heart.

 

To show Himself to you, so you know He is real.

 

 

Ever want someone to personally ask God to watch over you?

 

Whether you realize it or not, the most powerful prayer person in all the universe is doing that for you.

 

Right now.

 

And He’ll never stop.

 

 

There is a God, and He is praying for you.

 

Hebrews 7:25


He Cares About You

 

 

Right where you are, right now.

 

In the silence, in the dark.

 

In the middle of your mess, hear His message of hope. He has not forgotten you.

 

His care, His love, His grace for you is without limit. His forgiveness won’t run out, you won’t have made ‘one too many’ mistakes for Him.

 

Others, maybe.  Friends might walk away. Family might abandon.

 

But not Him. His promise to you is “Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.”

 

He promises “I will never leave you, I will never abandon you.”

 

Best part about those promises is they don’t have anything to do with how good you are, how clean, how much you have earned it.

 

They have everything to do with how much He loves you, cares about you, promises to be near you no matter what you do or where you go. Or who else walks away.

 

He hears you.

 

He gets it.

 

He knows.

 

The anger. The heartache. The heart break.

 

The times you cried, the day you prayed.

 

The times you vowed never to pray again…

 

He’s still listening. He’s still promising.

 

He still cares.

 

If you will allow just one corner of your blackened, broken heart to listen.

 

Just one glance His way, just one breath of hope to consider it might be true.

 

He might be true.

 

Because there is a God, and He cares deeply about you.

 

Psalm 27:10, Hebrews 13:5
