Do not make a practice of assuming God’s love and, therefore, not bother to ask Him to tell you what He thinks about you. I'm not talking about His approval—you may assume that you have all of that, since Christ gave you that as a gift. I continue to ask, "Father, what do you think of me?" on a regular basis, because I deeply enjoy knowing Him, and there's often something new, some different aspect of His love for me I've yet to know. Or perhaps a lie has taken hold of me, and He's really good at getting rid of that. I like that a lot. Ask and listen, loved ones.
