It’s not just some cutesy Christian blah-blah-blah; it’s true…God has boundless, unconditional love for you. And you don’t have to earn it in order to receive it! What a novel idea!
Wow, so many of us who struggle with the need to be valued can enter His rest now. We don’t have to try harder and harder to feel good enough to be loved by God…He loves us just as we are. The only caveat here is that He doesn’t want us to stay that way. If you let Him, He will take you and change you, pouring out His love upon you all along the way.
Take a moment, face to face, eye to eye so to speak, with Jesus. He will speak to your heart and let you know you have nothing to fear because He holds no condemnation toward you. He actually delights in you and wants to shower you with His favor.
All it takes is your permission for Him to enter into your life. He will not force Himself on you; that would be spiritual rape. Ask Him to come into your heart. He will give you new for old, jewels for junk and eternal life instead of death. Go for it!
Don’t believe me, read Zephaniah 3:17, “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Endure the fire—it’s producing pure gold!
