“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 1 John 4:10 NLT
It can be difficult to truly understand the capacity of someone who loves you so much that they would send their son to die so you can have a life. Having an understanding that God loves you can change your entire Christian life!
Many people focus on how much we love God. This is wonderful, but the real emphasis should be on God’s love for us and what He has made available to us because of the Cross. Today, let's meditate on God's love.
There are times in life when our problems seem bigger than God's love for us, and He becomes small in our eyes. God is bigger than our past or upbringing. He is bigger than any disease or any problem we will ever face. We can know this in our head yet find it difficult at times to walk it out in daily life. Worrying will never change anything but trusting in God changes everything! So, today, let's make the decision to take God at His word and turn all worries into prayers and receive His love.
Let us pray:
“Father, thank You for showing me what real love is by sending Your Son, so that through Him I could be saved! Today, I receive and rest in Your love. I put my trust and my faith in You because I know that nothing is impossible with You. Thank You Father for making a way when there is no way. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Declare: I declare that I daily enjoy God's unchanging, unstoppable, unshakable love in all areas of my life. I will not take God's love for me for granted.
