We don’t need to play that game with God. God loves us regardless of how well we are doing. Our performance and God’s love are two different things. Yet, many of us grew up thinking if we just did things right, it would please God and He’d love us.
How different that ideation is from what GOD said…(even while we were yet sinners, God loved us). He loves us with an EVERLASTING love (Jeremiah 31:3: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.” He’s clothed us with His robes of righteousness. He has an unfailing love!
Someone once said that God risked all by granting us freedom to think for ourselves. This is a godlike privilege, forever setting us apart from animals and robots. God made us in His image, precariously close to deity! And some people surely are their own gods! As a human they are limited but God is totally unlimited…the only REAL GOD!
God loves you…you can now meet Him as FATHER and not as JUDGE!
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities (demons), nor things present nor things to come, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.”
Not death: sin—He forgives…after your physical death = you’re with Him!
Not life: all of its complexities…He NEVER leaves you
Not angels: the messengers of God will lead to Him and not away
Not demons: they have no power over you to separate you from God’s love
Not the present: all that happens to you will not separate you from God’s care and interest in you
Not the future: anything coming down the pike can’t either
Not any powers: not the world, not the flesh, not the devil
Not any height: not your best days or the highest challenges you have to climb
Not any depth: not your worst days or the easiest flatland journey
Not ANY created thing: and that covers all else!
Nothing, nada…none of this or ANYTHING can separate you from the love of God…you are His child FOREVER. He will NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU!
You never have to guess if ”He loves me, He loves me not.” Rather, you can always say…
“He loves me, He loves me, He loves me…”
Now go live it in that love.
NOW GO LIVE IT!
