Have you ever had to just stop and think about how God loves you? Its quite evident that God knows this world and our problems seem to drown us in its atmosphere of expectations and demands. It can be so much that we forget how much God in heaven loves us that makes us uniquely wonderful to fit in where we do in this world. Have you thought about it lately How God came to the earth as Jesus Christ so he could be at hand with you, drawing closer and closer to Love you. Thinking about God loving you this way helps me daily. In fact I needed the reminder which is why I wrote this.
1 John 3:1 ” How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called Children of God”
Gods Love for us was pour out through Jesus on the cross. Sometimes our perception of love is blinded through the highlights of societies standards of love. Which can I just say that is so much lower than a savior coming from Heaven to die for you. Its just that evident and more powerful! The more we advance in a culture on earth the less love you see. Demands of acceptance, and power challenges divides souls coming eye to eye to see that we are all created the same, bleed the same and feel pain the same. Today we find less and less Joy in this world because the world has lost the conviction of Gods Love. People have said they don’t need Gods love. Some do not believe there can be such a loving God. Some can not understand its possibility though they have the hope that there is.
So how can we bring joy to these hearts that are exposed just as much to the worlds demands and expectations? Stand firm in the conviction of Gods love! Do not lose sight that God wants to use you for His love. Spread His hope through opening the arms and heart to others. Understand them, and use your foundation to let Gods Holy Spirit to move around them. Through you they see something different, they see no demand they see acceptance and love. God is Love.
Ephesians 2:4-5 “God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he love us even when we were dead through our trespasses , made us alive together with Christ.”
Dear God Thank you for loving me more than I can comprehend or understand. Help me see the way you see me Lord. Amen
Affirmation: Even when I am hurting, working, challenged by this World God Loves me and Understands me! I am His! I am Loved! I am lavished on with His mercy and Love. I am surrounded by Grace! I am wrapped in His Spirit of Love! God is Love!
