Hosea 2:23 – “Then I will say to those who were not My people, “You are My people!” And they shall say, “You are my God!””
Lack of self-esteem is one emotional problem affecting many in the society. People are on a desperate search for self-significance. Somehow they want to be someone accepted by all. Some are even driven to the point of suicide because they felt unloved and unaccepted by those around them. The hard truth is that the love and acceptance by the world is neither lasting nor fulfilling.
Do you know that there is Someone who loves you enough that He sent His Son to the cross so you might have everlasting life? His arms are extended even today saying, “The one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out” (John 6:37). Have you ever felt rejected, unappreciated, or unloved? You will know perfect fulfilling love and acceptance only when Jesus puts His arms around you and His love abides upon you. He will never reject or neglect you.
