And, we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him. 1 JOHN 4:16
You are someone God genuinely loves! You're not your weaknesses. You're not your sins. You're not even your strengths. You are someone God loves, enjoys and redeems In Christ Jesus you're brand new, through and through.
You don't have to look back in regret or look down in shame if you know Jesus as your personal Savior. Look up and honor the Name of Jesus, who lived, died, was buried, and rose again so you could live powerfully, abundantly and joyfully!
Please, refuse to let your setbacks or mess-ups to define you. They don't! They can't! be bold, be courageous, and be happy in Jesus. He's thrilled to claim you as His own! Jesus delights in you each and every day.
Remember, we have come to know (by personal observation and experience), and have believed (with deep, consistent faith) the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love... abides in God, and God abides continually in him.
Lord, we all experience times when we fail to grasp Your love for us, and there are times when Your love seems so distant and unreachable, which clearly shows our humanness. I thank You Lord, because You understand our frailties and truly love us even more because of them.
Dear Lord Jesus, our humanness often needs an embrace or some little show of Your love, simply because of the way we were created. Lord my request today is that You would please establish and affirm the following words into each of our hearts, our minds, our souls, and our spirits.
Jesus, show us that there is nothing more we can do to make God love us more. And, there is nothing we can do to make You love us any less. You love us because we are forever Your children! Your love for us is unconditional, genuine, impartial, infallible, everlasting, infinite, and perfect! Lord I ask that you would embed Your love into each person who reads this even now. May we find great joy in knowing how priceless we are to You! Amen & Amen.
BELOW: You Will Always Be A Child
When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we become His children! And, we will always be a child of God in His eyes!
