TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
You are the apple of your Father’s eye. He is continually focused on you and waits for you to focus on Him. When your mind wanders, come back to Him. He’s never upset at your inattention, but celebrates each return!
When I was a kid, we used to sing a little song. You might remember it. It goes, “Nobody likes me. Everybody hates me. Goin’ to the garden, eat worms, eat worms!”
While it seems like a silly kids song, many of us adults subscribe to the spirit behind it.
The thought pattern that “nobody loves me” or “nobody cares” is a dangerous way of thinking. Why? Because it’s a lie from the pit of hell. Satan’s favorite way of paralyzing us and keeping us from our destiny.
You are loved like crazy by the extravagant God of the universe. He planned you and knew you before He knit you together in your mother’s womb. The Bible says He counts the number of hairs on your head and keeps track of your tears – tears that break His heart to watch you cry.
When you’re tempted to focus on the two nimrods that don’t like you, stop. Instead, focus on all the people who love you. If you’re convinced nobody on this earth loves you, know for certain that your Father in Heaven thinks you’re the best.
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
– Psalms 17:8
Being the apple of His eye means you are HIs focus! You never have to ask for His attention because you have it – all of it! You also have all of His love because it is limitless! You never have to share God with anyone else because He’s all yours all the time!
Moses knew this well. Moses didn’t have many friends. Because he was the leader, he took a lot of the blame and criticism of the people. The word says his own wife didn’t even like him! But the Bible clearly records God’s thoughts on Moses. God called him “a friend.”
The Lord would speak to Moses face to face as one speaks to a friend.
– Exodus 33:11
Know this: you can’t make people love you. As wonderful and perfect as God Himself is, He can’t make anyone love Him. So focus on those who do love you, especially Jesus!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO STOP CHASING AFTER PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO LOVE YOU. FOCUS ON JESUS, WHO LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT!
