The view and opinion you have of how God sees you is vitally important in our believing and receiving from Him!

Luke 5 “4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”

Many Christians view themselves as sinful and unholy and because of that can not possibly develop an intimate relation with God.  BUT! When you realize how very much you are loved by Father, and that in Christ you have been born anew, raised to newness of life, clothed with His righteousness, YOU WILL RUN TO HIM NOT FROM HIM! (Or swim, lol)

John 21 “5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.”

Notice how the same disciple who ran from Jesus, after receiving a revelation of the love the savior has toward all, COULDN'T GET OUT OF THE BOAT AND GET TO JESUS FAST ENOUGH!

When your view and opinion matches Gods view and opinion you will always: Hebrews 4 “16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Run to Him, not away from Him! I love you all very much!(NLM)
