Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – is a condition wherein a person experiences anxiety that gives him/her feelings, thoughts, sensations (obsessions) and makes the person commit certain actions repetitively.
Do you know that God is diagnosed with this?
You think it’s a crazy idea? Do you think that this condition is not normal? Well…not really… only …supernatural!
On one Sunday sermon, the speaker described God as a “crazy God”…an “obsessed God”, others laughed. Why? Sounds like a crazy idea? It is not, it is a fact. In fact, it is the truth! Who else like GOD, the Creator, the Father? Who else can do what He has done?
He created us into His likeness to be His children. You and me are His creations. This gives GOD the full right of ownership over those He created. He owns us…but not only once when he made us. He owned us twice!
He created us… but then He also purchased us…He paid for us, his creations so that he can have us called His own…His and His alone.
God already has ownership over us when He formed us, His creations, but then He also paid for us when His only Son Jesus died on the cross to redeem people from sin, the one who stole His precious creations from Him.
From death and sin Jesus redeemed us. He took that penalty to save us and make us worthy of Him.
God signed His personal signature, His identity on you and me, His masterpiece, when He formed us. After that, He signed that signature again through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ when he redeemed us from sin and death, … now tell me, isn’t that obsessive?
It is my friend! Don’t deny it… there’s a God so loving and so passionate about you… HE’S CRAZY OVER YOU…! HE’S OBSESSED ABOUT YOU!
“…YOU ARE MINE, MY CHILD…I AM YOUR FATHER… I DELIGHT ON YOU MY PRECIOUS CREATION, THE VERY PURPOSE ON WHICH I HAVE FOR YOU…WHY I MADE YOU AFTER MY OWN IMAGE…YOU ARE MINE… NO ONE CAN TAKE YOU AWAY FROM ME, MY BELOVED POSSESSION…I’M CRAZY ABOUT YOU… I OWN YOU… OH, WAIT… I THINK I REALLY CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF YOU …RIGHT..! I’LL PUT A PRICE ON YOU… ON WHICH ONLY I COULD PAY…SO? HOW MUCH WOULD YOU COST..? OH, YES! I’LL PAY A HIGH PRICE FOR YOU… YOU ARE WORTH OF MY ONE AND ONLY SON JESUS’ LIFE…YOU ARE WORTH THE BLOOD HE WOULD SPILL… DON’T YOU SEE..?I’M OBSESSED WITH YOU! I NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE REALLY, REALLY MINE… SO THIS CRIMSON BLOOD WOULD COVER YOU… IT WILL NEVER EVER BE WASHED OUT FROM YOU…IT WILL SAVE YOU FROM ALL SINS… IT WOULD WASH AWAY ALL YOUR FLAWS…NOW YOU’RE PERFECT! YOU TRULY BELONG WITH ME NOW…I CAN SEE JESUS’ BLOOD ON YOU … WELL… THAT’S YOUR NEW IDENTITY! I CREATED YOU..! I REDEEMED YOU! SO YOU ARE REALLY REALLY MINE..! NOW… PLEASE… WILL YOU SAY IT TO ME TOO, THAT… “I’M YOURS…”
HELLO MY FRIEND!…I hope you enjoyed reading this…!
If by any chance you realized that you need this kind of obsessive love… well, it is not an accident that you read this note. Because of His love we can turn form our old ways and turn to Him.
Are you ready?
You can really experience our Father’s love, just the kind of love you truly need… just believe and have faith. This is the cry of God. He is so obsessed to let you know how much He loves you.
He wants you to know you have been redeemed, and there’s no way He would let you be separated from Him again. That you are redeemed from sin should not make you fear to repent*. With Christ, you are not alone. Because of His love you can repent. He is someone who will be with you in pain as you change and leave your old ways and start to live in God’s plan.
He is knocking at the door of your heart and you can choose to open it… believe that Jesus died for you and has given you a new life, an everlasting life… a new identity… worthy of being loved. Believe that Jesus has saved you and wants a real personal relationship with you.
Here is a prayer, you can talk to our LORD Jesus Christ in this way, what matters is what is inside your heart, and He deeply knows your fears and your inner cries, your true desires…
…LORD Jesus… I need Your love…the kind of love only You can give… thank You for forgiving my sins, thank You for saving me from death … thank You for Your blood on the cross, thank You, You died and live for me … here I am Lord… enter my life… I receive my new identity in You… thank you for the gift of eternal life. I surrender my life to You, help me to repent from my old ways and turn to You*, my Savior and Lord. Take it, use it as You will. Amen.
