2018-10-01 - Being an Object is a Good Thing
Ads pop up, when I least expect them. Many times, the advertisements depict someone as an object, in order to sell a product, stripping the person of his uniqueness, thoughts, and feelings. Thankfully, the Lord views humans more favorably.
It's true God sees us as objects. We are the object of His love, grace, peace, and comfort. (Ephesians 2:4, 8, Colossians 3:15, and 2 Thessalonians 2:16) We're on the receiving end of His power. (Ephesians 1:19)
Whenever we are faced with a decision, or burdened with pressure, we can remind ourselves of these Scriptural facts. When we do this, the weight of our burdens begins to lighten. When we seek the Lord in all our problems, life can become manageable.
Thank You, Lord, for not treating me like an object. You see my humanness and want to guide me into right living. In the name of Jesus', Amen.
