My God is a good, good God and I am loved by Him. If I have to repeat that statement 20x in a day in order to convince myself…then I will. For that is who God is and who I am. God is love and I am loved by Him. Nothing else really matters. The God of the universe, the great God…the only God, loves me and pulls me toward Him. Wow! That’s who He is and that is who I am. He gave His very best to purchase me as His own. I accepted that gracious gift and now I have been adopted, grafted into His family. What a privilege and great honor, I am forever grateful and full of exuberant praise.
This is what I believe and confidently declare!

Ephesians 1:3-6 (HCSB) Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens. 4 For He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight., In love 5 He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will, 6 to the praise of His glorious grace that He favored us with in the Beloved.
1 Peter 1:3-4 (NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade–kept in heaven for you.
1 Thessalonians 1:4 (ESV) For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you.
Galatians 2:20 (ESV) I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
