We are a loved by God. Today I am reminded how nothing I do will make God love me less. His love is perfect, infinite, and unstoppable. Some days I need to know that promise and hear on repeat. I affirm the love of God for me is real, true, and constant. Maybe you needed to know that too.
We can look at our lives, and think we have missed the mark of perfection and acceptance. We survey the messiness in the land of our choices and somehow believe we are disqualified from the love of God. This is not true! Our mistakes, mishaps, and misgivings do not keep us from the love of God. In fact nothing can keep us from the love of God, nothing at all!
The love of God is faithful. The love of God is eternal. The love of God is for each and everyone of us walking. The truth is, God desires you and me. He wants a relationship with each and everyone of us. That is good news! This God we cannot see entered our world and seeks after us to show us His benevolence, His kindness, and His grace. We are His choice. It is enough. Yes, it is more than enough.
Ephesians 1:4 says, “Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.” Remember these words tonight. Pray them. Sing them. Write them. This is God’s reminder to us: we are fiercely loved.
No matter who you are, no matter where you are at, know this: you are ardently loved by God. Your life has meaning and purpose. You are not a mistake. You are not at fault. You are not to be blamed. God is looking intently for you. You and I are His greatest desire. Will you come to His table? Come home and find all you need in Him. He is more than enough.
This is day 16 of my 31 Days of Affirmation. In this series I’ll affirm hope, faith, truth, and encouragement even when life is troubling. Particularly the series ponders what it means to hold on to those things that are good, right, noble, honorable, true, and lovely even when life isn’t so pretty. You can read all the series posthere. I hope you’ll be encouraged.
