The feeling of being left out can be a real downer. Whether it's at work, in family gatherings, or even at church, it can sting. But there's an uplifting thought: God's Kingdom operates on a different level. One verse that springs to mind is Hebrews 13:5 (NASB): “…. for He Himself has said, 'I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.'"
In God's eyes, you're never an outsider or an afterthought. You're as much a part of His plan as anyone else. Your value doesn't hinge on social invites, office promotions, or the number of church committees you're on. God sees you, knows your heart, and cherishes your unique contributions to His Kingdom.
In God's eyes, you're never left out; you're always counted in. You are always valued, and let's be honest, being "in" with the Creator of the Universe is the ultimate inclusion, wouldn't you say?
When God counts you ‘in’, you will never be left ‘out’.
Thank You, Lord, for loving me as much as you do. Amen.
Take an hour in prayer and thank God for all the positive things you experience in life.
