God's Top Ten

 1. God loves you

This means He cares about you. He's for you like a parent who worries and provides for their child. God made you and likes you.

"God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son so that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." – John 3:16

 2. God is always with you

This means you can always call upon the Lord for help, or take comfort in His presence or draw upon His assistance regardless of what your situation might be.

"Where can I go from your presence?" – Psalm 139:7

 3. God has the power to change your life

This means that our lives that are broken with dysfunctional quirks and damaged relationships and self defeating thinking, bad attitudes and habits can be lifted from our psyche and a new person – not dominated by sin – can emerge. This happens because Jesus' Spirit takes up residence within our hearts.

"If anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation; the old things have passed away, behold new things have come." 
  – 2 Corinthians 5:17

 4. He wants to bless you

This means we do not have to live in fear of God striking us down whenever we fail. The Lord is for us and wants to provide us with abundant life.

"He longs to bless you" – Isaiah 30:18

 5. God has a plan for your life

This means that we are not aimlessly trying to figure out our purpose here on earth. Instead of the insatiable search for pleasure and success that leaves people broken and unsatisfied, the Lord gives us a life with deeper meaning.

"For I know the plans I have for you—plans for welfare and not calamity-to give you a future and a hope " – Jeremiah 29:ll

 6. God guides you through life

This means that we are not alone in trying to understand and figure out this world with its twists and turns. God's word is a map and His Spirit is within us to lead and direct us daily.

"You ears will hear a word behind you this is the way walk in it, whether you turn to the right or to the left." – Isaiah 30:21

 7. You can't be too sinful to have a relationship with God

This means you don't have to be afraid of God, because He knows that we are under the sin nature; therefore He sent his son Jesus to remove the penalty of sin and what Jesus did for us – dying on the cross – brings us the forgiveness we need to be reconnected with the Lord.

"Where sin increased grace abounds all the more." – Romans 5:20

 8. You don't have to earn God's love

This means His love is a gift freely given to you. Because of our sin nature we are not able to meet God's requirements of perfection, so Jesus transferred to us His perfection and took all our sins on the cross. What saves us is God's move not ours. Our good deeds are merely our grateful response to His love for us.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, not of yourself it is a gift from God." – Ephesians 2:8-9

 9. God can always fix a hurt

This means when life tumbles in on us–whether it be the result of our own mistakes or someone else’s bad behavior thrust upon us, the Lord will not only turn the situation around for our spiritual growth and deepen our souls through the calamity, He will positively redirect our daily lives. The Lord specializes in turning bad into good. 

"All things work together for good who love the Lord" - Romans 8:28

 10. God wants you to live with Him forever

This means the Lord who originally created us to be in a relationship with Him has restored that reality, so that when we accept His love in Christ - life with God starts anew and lasts forever.

"I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." – Psalm 23:6
