The Bible is filled with verses that point to just how much God loves you. And His love began even before you were born! “You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb” (Psalm 139:13).  Every minute of every day, God is thinking about you and planning good things for you. Psalm 139:16-18 tells us:

All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with You.

If today you are feeling unloved or inadequate, remember these facts:

1. God knows you through and through–and loves you.
There is nothing you can do to make Him love you more…or less. You are the apple of His eye! (Zechariah 2:8)

2. God is always with you.
You will never be alone; He is always with you in the midst of daily struggles and trials. “Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9).

3. God especially designed you, just as you are.
He has given you talents and a personality unique to you. The Message puts it this way: “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given…Don’t compare yourself with others” (Galatians 6:4-5).

But here’s the greatest proof of divine love: “God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

So go forward today with joy and confidence. God loves you!
