Does God Love Everyone Equally?

It can be tough to remember our true identity. We are beloved children of God. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1

How can I remind myself of my true identity?

When you’re discouraged, comparing what you have with your friend’s possessions, or questioning if you’re getting it “right,” take a moment (and a deep breath) to remind yourself of who you are. The devil loves nothing more than to distract us, discourage us, and derail us from knowing and experiencing God’s love for us. Be intentional in combatting distraction, and consider these ideas:

  • As part of your morning routine in front of a mirror, repeat (out loud) this phrase, “I’m a beloved child of God.”
  • Write out bright-colored sticky notes with statements such as, “You’re a beloved child of God,” “Remember your identity,” and “It’s not just who you are—but whose you are!” Place the sticky notes around your room and home as a visual reminder.
  • Ask a friend to remind you of your true identity. In fact, you can do this for each other. Choose a specific day of the week to text each other an encouraging reminder.

God loves you uniquely, specifically, personally, and deeply. Look for ways to observe and notice His lavish love for you. Be sure to take the time to thank Him for His goodness.
