“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1).
God’s love for His children stands unmatched by anything this world has to offer. Only the love of God can:
– Calm the restlessness of your soul
– Heal any hatred you have experienced
– Change worry and doubt to hope and security
– Resolve the anger and bitterness of disappointment
– Give you a sense of purpose, self- worth, and hope.
God never grows tired of you. He sees the span of your life. His eye is on the potential that your life holds. He spends each moment completely absorbed in thoughts of you – developing you, molding you, and blessing you. So often we miss the blessings of God because we worry about what we should or should not do. Questions fill our minds: Did I do it right? Is God pleased with me?
God loves you, and His love will never change. God loves you, and there’s not a thing in the world you can do about it. All we can do is stand in awe of His tremendous love for us and His amazing grace toward us!
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love!” (1 John 4:7-8).
