The hardest thing for me to believe about God is that He really loves me. It’s easy to believe He’s powerful, sovereign and wise. But I struggle to feel His love. Can you relate?

Lately, I’ve asked God to help me see myself the way He sees me. How’s this for awesome truth: ‘God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure.’ (Ephesians 1:5)

It gives Him tremendous joy to draw me – to draw YOU – to Himself! Let it satisfy your soul today: you are wildly loved.

I am loving the song ‘Though the seasons change – your love remains!’ by United Pursuit

It is just such a good reminder of the one thing that never changes, God’s love.
The word constant comes to mind – not changing or varying; uniform; regular; continuing without pause; continual and persistent.

God is constant in His relationship with you and how He loves you. He is persistent in you knowing how much you are loved. In a world of change, what a relief to have someone so constant and persistent.

You are loved!

The cool thing about getting to know God better is that it helps us to love others more. Because the more you know God, the greater the glimpse you’ll get of how much He loves people – you and every other human you’ll ever meet.

When I rub up against someone I don’t necessarily like, I’m trying to call to mind that Jesus loves them so much He died for them. I’m trying to remember to ask Jesus if I can borrow His feelings for that person. And suddenly the mistrust, misunderstanding or offence dissolves a little. ‘We love because He first loved us.’ (1 John 4:19 – http://bit.ly/2zvjtQg)

How do I know God loves me?

Everyone knows that “God is love”, but how can I be sure that God loves me? John gives us a very simple answer in his letter 1 John 4:9.

When you doubt God’s love, look to the death of Jesus on the cross for you. When your friends doubt that God loves them, remind them of Jesus’ death on the cross for the whole world. The cross is God’s love letter to the world, there for all to see, forever. God loves us this much, that He would die like a criminal to bring us back into a loving relationship with Him.
