You are listening to episode 38, Titled- He knows you by name

Hey you guys! This is Kelsie Millet and I am your host here on the Let Him In Podcast, where 

my intent is to have these episodes full of thoughts, impressions and ways for you to easily let God into your every day.

I love today’s episode because I think it is a reminder that we all need. In my opinion one of the biggest attacks of the adversary today is trying to get us to believe that we are not worthy. We are not worthy of blessings we receive, we are not worthy of God speaking to us because we are not reading our scriptures enough, or praying enough, or fulfilling our calling well enough. Whatever crack of weakness we have, the adversary can find it and feed us thoughts of doubt. 

It is important to take a step back every once in awhile and see where the adversary is attacking each of us personally. What thoughts do you think he may be giving you? What is he doing to pull you away from God and make you feel like God may love you less?

Let’s just pause right now and remember that we are all divine, worthy, beautiful children of a loving Heavenly Father. Whose LOVE never changes for us. 

The Lord is the shepherd of each and every one of us. He is the Good Shepherd who is aware of each and every sheep in His fold. Knowing how much the Lord loves us and cares for us can give us strength and peace as we navigate the difficulties of our mortal experience. We have never strayed too far to be found. His love is ever ready for each of us! 

Now if the Lord is our Shepherd, that makes us the sheep. Prone to wander. Entirely and always reliant on our Shepherd, whether we realize it or not. We can’t see God as Shepherd if we don’t see ourselves as sheep. When we open our eyes to how much we really need and rely on God for everything, the more we realize His provision in our lives. But if we live in the lie that we can do everything on our own, we wander and drift away from our true source, looking for satisfaction in artificial places.

A shepherd represents a close and intimate relationship. Whereas a king might do what’s best for the majority, a shepherd knows each one of his sheep. A shepherd has deep concern and care, not only for His flock of sheep, but also for each and every single one.

Elder Dale G. Renlund in his talk Our Good Shepherd says this-

The Savior’s mortal ministry was indeed characterized by love, compassion, and empathy. He did not disdainfully walk the dusty roads of Galilee and Judea, flinching at the sight of sinners. He did not dodge them in abject horror. No, He ate with them.12 He helped and blessed, lifted and edified, and replaced fear and despair with hope and joy. Like the true shepherd He is, He seeks us and finds us to offer relief and hope.13 Understanding His compassion and love helps us exercise faith in Him—to repent and be healed.

In 2 Nephi 26:25 it reads

Behold, doth he cry unto any, saying: Depart from me? Behold, I say unto you, Nay; but he saith: Come unto me all ye ends of the earth, 

God loves you. He loves me. He loves all of us. No matter what our own journey and road has looked like, OUR WORTH NEVER CHANGES TO HIM. 

You are always worthy to pray to Him, you are always worthy of His time. You are always worthy of His love. He knows who you are and He knows your name.

Today’s thought comes from Bradley R. Wilcox

Some mistakenly receive the message that they are not worthy to participate fully in the gospel because they are not completely free of bad habits. God’s message is that worthiness is not flawlessness.11 Worthiness is being honest and trying. We must be honest with God, priesthood leaders, and others who love us,12 and we must strive to keep God’s commandments and never give up just because we slip up.

Now would be the perfect time to pull out your Hear Him Journal and continue in more stillness, an open mind and a desire to connect with God. 

Love you guys!
