Knowing God’s heart for me and humanity has helped me to begin to understand His love. I say ‘begin’ because I think coming to a place of fully understanding the enormity and power of God’s love is lifelong journey. I’m not sure any of us will ever fully understand His love this side of eternity? In Jeremiah 31:3 God speaks of His love, an everlasting love.
During this (so far) three year journey, I’ve had many moments where I’ve told God I love Him and as soon as I’ve uttered those words my eyes well up and something leaps inside me. Simply put I feel overwhelmed. It is as if the Holy Spirit within me is leaping as I say it. Before I embarked on this journey I rarely told God that I loved Him. Perhaps I figured He knew (after all He knows everything). Perhaps I did not realise the power in saying it. The power of declaring not only my trust and belief in God, but also my love my heart for Him.
There have been times that I’ve thanked God for His love and had the same response, both with the tears and the sensation within me. It’s almost indescribable. Perhaps God always intended it to be that way.
I believe that from God’s love flows His desire to reconcile us to Him. I believe that it’s His love which drives him to desire to work all things together for our good.
Do you tell God that you love Him? If so, how do you feel when you say it? If you don’t say it, why not?
Do you thank God for His relentless unfailing love for you? Just because He loves everyone on the planet does not diminish the fact that He loves you. Don’t let the enemy rob you of the revelation of God’s love by telling you that God loves everyone so you’re not special.
