“Just as I considered your life valuable today, so may the Lord consider my life valuable and rescue me from all trouble.” 1 Samuel 26:24 HCSB
One might say that Donald Trump is worth something because of his large amount of wealth. Aren’t you glad that God does not value a person based on his financial status? God loves you because you are you. He loves you very much and believes your life is valuable. He considers your life so valuable that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die a cruel death on the cross for your sins. Jesus paid the penalty for your sins. Your life is worth that much to God.
God says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5) Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I kn0w the plans I have for you.” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.” Before your conception God knew you and valued your life. He had a plan for you. David asked the Lord to consider his life valuable and rescue him from danger.
Challenge: Always remember that God values your life and has a plan for your life – a plan to prosper you and not to harm you. This does not mean you will never encounter difficulties, but if you will seek God and His ways you will find peace and happiness.
