Are we confident in God’s ability to love us?









Matthew 7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

I have a 6 year old son. At this age, the sun usually rises and sets to me for him. Even times I have to scold him, he will still look to me for to comfort and love. He goes out of his way to get my attention and admiration. Now I know you might be thinking… just wait until he is a pre-teen! Ha! I am already trying to prepare myself mentally for the change. Lol But as I was reflecting on how genuine his love is for me, I thought about how much God loves us. If we think about it carnally, it makes no sense for someone to love us when he have so many issues, flaws, shortcomings, unforgiving hearts, lustful desires and disobedient ways. However, God looks past our faults and still loves us in spite of us! It can be hard for us to understand the magnitude of God’s love because He has a pure heart. His goodness is beyond what we can comprehend. We sometimes feel so undeserving of this love because we know ourselves but we don’t know ourselves better than the one that created us! He gave His very best for us…His son Jesus so we can be in fellowship with Him. Now that is love. So instead of trying to figure out why you don’t deserve His love, just enjoy and bask in the knowledge that He loves us beyond what we could ever comprehend.

Romans 8: 38-39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
