Today is a special day that talks about Love and what better time is there to remind you how much God loves you!
It’s so important to embrace the truth of who we really are. We are a child of God and that is something to be extremely proud of. God’s love is unchanging, never ending and completely undeserved.
His words of Love will sustain you in those complicated days and will breathe life into your weary souls.
As we allow God’s Love to flow through us, we will see the transformation begin to change our lives. Our desires, dreams, even our thoughts, words, and actions will begin to reflect His heart.
God cherishes you, enjoys you, and believes in you. He knows every thought and intent of your heart. He also invites you to get to know Him.
He doesn’t want you to just learn about Him, He wants you to experience a relationship with Him. When He wraps His arms around you, the peace of God flows through you and miracles are found in the safety of His arms. How absolutely beautiful it is to know the KING OF KINGS loves you unconditionally. The same hands that hold the universe cradles you. His touch is evident. He shows so much compassion to us and reaches out for us and draws us to Himself. You may not always see His hand tucked beneath your head, but you will feel it. This is the reality of the world we live in. We were created for such a time as this.
” His left hand cradles my head while His right hand holds me close. I am at rest in this love.” Song of Songs 2:6 TPT
When Jesus comes close, everything changes. When He wraps you within the power of His embrace, it’s hard to deny it. His all -encompassing love is comforting to us.
Jesus is faithful and pursues us every day. We are trying to figure out where He is while He’s reaching out to us and saying ” Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
“ Let the dawning day bring me revelation of your tender, unfailing love. Give me light for my path and teach me, for I trust in you.” Psalms 143:8 TPT
The greatest commandment is found in Mark 12: 29-31 NLT
” Jesus replied, ” The most important commandment is this: “Listen, O Israel! The LORD our God is the one and only LORD. And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” The second is equally important: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” No other commandment is greater than these.”
” Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. The light of God’s love shined within us when he sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through him. This is love: he loved us long before we loved him. it was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins. Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then loving one another should be our way of life! No one has ever gazed upon the fullness of God’s splendor. But if we love one another, God makes his permanent home in us, and we make our permanent home in him, and his love is brought to its full expression in us. And he has given us his Spirit within us so that we can have the assurance that he lives in us and that we live in him.” 1 John 4: 7-13 TPT
” But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly.” Romans 5:8 TPT
“ For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a might Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
There are so many people who are facing so many obstacles, and experiencing difficult times. Jesus is there for everyone and will help us through those times, whatever they may be.
Because Jesus lives, we can face today, and tomorrow. It doesn’t matter what we are going though, we need to put our faith and hope in the Lord and serve Him.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. ” Hebrews 12: 1-2 NLT
This great cloud of witnesses are cheering us on as we run the race of our lives. They persevered, and they will inspire us to finish our race by fixing our eyes on Jesus Christ , the one who strengthens our feeble arms and weak knees so that we will not grow weary and lose heart.
If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I invite you to pray the prayer below.
I also want to challenge you to give the best time of your day to the Lord. Spend time reading His Word. Spend time in prayer talking to the Lord letting Him know what is in your heart.
Ask the Lord to give you strength not to quit.
Ask for courage to go through each day of your life.
Let’s take our eyes off ourselves today, and fix our eyes on Jesus!
God has given us a promise in Hebrews 13:5 that says ” He will never leave us nor forsake us.”
” Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your GOD will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 4:9 NIV
When we get to the end of our lives , the house we live in, the cars we drove, the things we possessed will not matter. What will matter is that we had accepted Jesus as our Savior and lived a life that was pleasing to Him.
May God bless you today and may you remember though our feelings may come and go, God’s love for us remains true and steadfast!
