John wrote, “We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in His love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.” 1 John 4:16
Not just that He loves but He is love!
The Bible says God’s love is perfect.
The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out, “Yahweh! The Lord! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. Exodus 34:6
But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) Ephesians 2:4–5
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6
It’s amazing, isn’t it?
No matter what you and I have done. No matter where we’ve been. No matter how we feel.
Maybe you need to hear these words today…
You are loved – perfectly, unconditionally, and unfailingly.
God loves us simply because love is who He is. Love comes first!
Even though I know the verses and the songs I still have days’ when I don’t feel very lovable. When memories of missteps and failures leave me doubting.
So, I’m taking His Word and making it personal. Maybe it’s the encouragement you need today, too.
10 Ways God’s Love is Perfect, Unconditional, and Unfailing
God’s Love is Self-sacrificing
This is how much God loved (insert your name): He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. John 3:16 (NLT)
God Made Me in His Image
God spoke:“Let us make (your name) in our image and likeness. Genesis 1:26 (NLT)
God Calls Me by My Name
He says, “Don’t be afraid because I have saved you. I have called you by name (your name), and you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 (NCV)
God Calls Me Good
God looked over everything He had made (your name); it was so good, so very good! Genesis 1:31 (MSG)
God Knows Everything About Me
You know me (your name) inside and out, You know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Psalm 139:15
He pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! Matthew 10:30
God Cares About My Circumstance
Is anyone crying for help? God is listening; If (your name) heart is broken, you’ll find God right there. Psalm 34:17-18 (NLT)
God Has Plans for My Future
I say this because I know what I am planning for you, (your name)” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
Nothing Can Remove God’s Love for Me
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate (your name) from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38–39 (NLT)
God’s Love For Me is Forever
Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens. Psalm 89:2 (NLT)
God’s Love Gives Me Life
So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open, drinking in Your strength and glory. In Your generous love, I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains. I bless You every time I take a breath; My arms wave like banners of praise to You. Psalm 63:1-4 (NLT)
A full life today and eternal life in His presence.
“Nothing can separate you from God’s love absolutely nothing. God is enough for time, God is enough for eternity. God is enough!” ~ Hannah Whitall Smith
“God wants us to know that His love is unconditional, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us while we were still unlovable sinners. We didn’t have to get clean, and we didn’t have to make any promises to God before we could experience His love. His love for us has always existed, and because of that, He did all the giving and sacrificing long before we were even aware that we needed His love.” ~ All About God
“God’s unfailing love for us is an objective fact affirmed over and over in the Scriptures. It is true whether we believe it or not. Our doubts do not destroy God’s love, nor does our faith create it. It originates in the very nature of God, who is love, and it flows to us through our union with His beloved Son.” ~ Jerry Bridges
What a blessing to know that no matter how you and I feel, even when we fail and doubt, God’s love is perfect, unconditional, and unfailing. That is something to celebrate!
