God of Heaven

Read: John 1:1-5, John 1:10-14, Ephesians 1:4, Romans 8:31-39

Everyone wants to be valued.

We often live our lives focused on trying to earn our place in the world. God is well aware of the desire in our hearts to be known and remembered because He put it there (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Our value is not in what we can do, but in what God has done for us. God gave us identity in the life of a person — Jesus.

God sent His son Jesus from heaven to be one of us. Jesus laid down His majesty to become a man. Jesus chose to become the least in all of creation, even to the point of death. Jesus became the least of us so that He could make the most of us.

As the song’s bridge says, “You traded honor for a crown of blame/A robe of light/For naked shame/To give the orphan Your family name.”

When we place our faith in Jesus, we are adopted as sons and daughters of God. We become God’s children! This truth allows us to remain in awe of what God has done and worship Him for who He is.

The second verse says, “You were wounded for my healing, my redemption.” In our weakness, Jesus is our strength. In our brokenness, Jesus is our healing. In our defeat, Jesus is our victory!

The victory Jesus has given us takes the focus off of us and places all the attention on Him.

Take a few moments to read these passages of Scripture and then listen to “God of Heaven” and thank God from your heart for who He is and what He’s done for you!
