“I always believed in God. I didn’t always know He believed in me.” -Matt Maher from Christmas with The Chosen: The Messengers
I heard those words as I sat in the dark movie theater. It was a record-screeching, everything comes to a halt, moment.
I grabbed my phone and the friend next to me simply said, “Yup.” She had heard it too, and knowing she was sitting next to a writer, she knew I’d have to capture it quickly before it floated away into the next scene.
I just want to make sure you hear it too.
“I always believed in God. I didn’t always know He believed in me.”
I was tempted to leave the theater in that moment so I could come home and tell you something you need to know, something you must know:
God believes in you.
He is for you.
He knows what you’re going through.
He sees you.
He knows you can do this. Whatever your “this” is in this particular situation.
Even when you don’t believe in Him, He believes in you.
I think someone needs to hear that today. You need to tuck it into your heart or write it on your hand or make it your screen saver. God believes in you.
For the record, I do too.
