Trusting in God’s grace means trusting in God’s love for us rather than our love for God. Therefore, our prayers should primarily consist of awakening our awareness of God’s love for us rather than trying to awaken God’s awareness of our love for him. ~ Peter Kreeft
God loves you. You have heard that at least a thousand times, but do you really understand how deep and abiding His love is? There is nothing stronger than love. The Bible says that love never fails. Why? Because there is nothing stronger or greater than God, and God IS Love! And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love; and whoever lives in love abides in God, and God in him. (I John 4:16).
God loves you. Completely. Infallibly. Eternally. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish, but may have eternal life. (John 3:16). Every promise written in the Bible is for you. Every story of victory and liberation was written to encourage you. The celebration of Christmas is a demonstration and proof of God’s great love for you. Because a child has been born to US … Everything that God has done, everything that Jesus has done was for YOU.
If God didn’t care what happened to you and me (and the rest of us on this planet), He wouldn’t have sent Jesus to rescue us from the clutches of Satan. But God recommends his love for us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5: 8). To recommend means to trust, to present as trustworthy, to approve as worthy. God deemed you worthy of Jesus’ sacrifice. God places great value on your family. He loves you!
The extreme price Jesus paid was to please his Father (John 8:29) because he understood God’s great love for you. Together, they want you to be free, fully supplied, healed, filled with joy and peace. God wanted you to become His son so He could pour out His love on you and provide you with everything you need! In this, God’s love for us was manifested, because God sent his only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (I John 4: 9-10).
God loves you. Yes, you love God, but He loved you first. But God, who is rich in mercy, by his great love with which he loved us … has quickened us together with Christ (by grace you are saved) (Ephesians 2: 4-5). Accelerated means to revive, energize and strengthen. You are more than you think you are because God lives within you, living you. You are everything God says you are because He created you!
God loves you. He has no grandchildren. Those who believe in and receive Jesus as Savior immediately become adopted children of God, first-generation heirs, and joint heirs with Jesus. But as it is written: Things that the eye did not see, nor the ear heard, Nor have come up in the heart of man, They are those that God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2: 9). God prepared your inheritance before the foundation of the world (John 17:24; Ephesians 1: 4). He’s just waiting for your faith to grow mature enough to pour out His blessings on you (for the same reason you don’t give a ten-year-old your car keys).
It is God’s great love for you that provides you with everything you need, want, or desire. It is your faith in that Love that draws those things from the realm of Spirit into natural manifestation. Therefore, it is by faith, so that it may be given by grace. [Love] until the end of the promise is sure for all the seed … (Romans 4:16). Every promise in God’s Word is provided by Love and received by faith.
You have more than enough of everything you need because God’s supply of everything you need is infinite. And God can make all grace abound to you; so that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound for every good work (2 Corinthians 9: 8). Notice the ALL in that verse. Everything encompasses everything, nothing is left out of EVERYTHING. God loves you enough to open the gates of the kingdom and for you a blessing that there is not enough space to receive it (Mal. 3:10). That is why David the psalmist was able to say, “My cup is overflowing.”
God loves you! See what love the Father has given us, so that we may be called children of God; therefore, the world does not know us, because it did not know him. Beloved, now we are children of God … (I John 3: 1-2). What you appear to be in this physical realm, even who you perceive yourself, is not who you really are. There are no spiritual birth defects or lack of any kind in the celestial kingdom.
God loves you. Everything you need is already within you because you were created in the image of God Himself! Because God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a healthy mind (2 Timothy 1: 7). The Holy Spirit lives in you because God wants to be in constant contact with you (John 16:13; I John 3:24, 4:13).
Open your eyes to discern the truth of who you are in Christ Jesus. you are more than a conqueror. You have the mind of Christ. Jesus was made us wisdom, justice, sanctification and redemption. (I Cor.1:30). I hold on to that verse every time I am faced with a challenge that seems to have no solution.
And walk in love, as Christ also loved us, and gave himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God for a fragrant odor. (Ephesians 5: 2). Jesus renounced his heavenly privileges and came to earth as a human child to experience all the pains and challenges that you and I face. Then he accepted extreme pain and death to show his great love for you. In this we perceive the love of God, because he gave his life for us … (I John 3:16).
God loves you. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good word and deed. (2 Thessalonians 2: 16-17). You are complete in the, fully stocked, divinely protected and much loved. God loves you BUNCHES!
