“The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.”” Jeremiah 31:3
You are loved.
You, yes YOU, are loved by the Creator of the Universe – the One who spoke everything into existence and continues to hold it together by the word of His power!
Will you receive this today? Will you be faithful to receive and appreciate God’s love for you? In spite of what you think, how you may feel or what others may say, will you choose to believe the word of the Lord that God’s love for you is everlasting?
In our society where the “you-scratch-my-back-and-I’ll-scratch-yours” and “If-you-hurt-my-feelings-I’m-gone” mentalities are so prevalent, we can often think that God is like that. If we are “this”, then God will love us, and if we perform perfectly, then God will love us. But, it is not so!
Because of Love, God sent His son to die for us when we were still sinners. Because of Love, God gave us His Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, knowing that at times we would choose not to listen to Him. You see, God is a faithful lover. He loves us to the very core, because we are His creation, the works of His hands.
This month, as we are learning how to upgrade our faithfulness to God, we must understand that it is because God loves us so much that He is inviting us to come up higher. And, in honour of His love we accept the invitation and begin the ascent.
With faithful lovingkindness He is drawing us into deeper fellowship with Him and to a greater commitment to His Kingdom so that we can experience more of the fullness of His love and receive more of His blessings to advance His Kingdom on the earth.
God’s faithful love is a powerful force!
It is the fuel that causes you to soar higher in life. It is the underlying current that stirs on the inside – enabling you to live the abundant life in the power of the Holy Spirit, walking in your purpose and serving others as you do. God’s faithful love sustains you!
Remember today: You are faithfully loved by a Faithful God, and that my friend is worth celebrating!
