I was finishing my regular morning Bible Study and prayer time when I paused to ask God what He wanted me to write . . . what He wanted me to share with you.
And my spirit heard Him say…
“Tell them how much I love them.”
My initial response was…
“Lord, don’t they already know?”
And I heard…
“They know, but they need to hear it again and again and again. Tell them again.”
So, let’s pause today to simply focus on God’s love.
He loves us more than we can imagine. He loves us perfectly and completely.
How can we know without any doubt that no matter where we’ve been or what we’ve done God loves each of us personally and unconditionally?
Because He said so in the Bible. And His Bible is His Word to us.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.2 Timothy 3:16 (ESV)

A Prayer Thanking God for His Unfailing Love
Father, I needed this today. I needed to remember the magnitude of Your love. When I really pause and think about the countless ways You have shown me Your love . . . I’m overwhelmed. Just allowing me to KNOW You, that You sent Jesus to SHOW people Your LOVE, and that you gave us Your Spirit to make it possible for us to respond to Your LOVE with faith and trust.
When I feel left out, help me remember that You have chosen me. When I feel discouraged, help me remember that You created me, that You know me completely, and that better than anyone . . . You understand me. I can count on Your unfailing love. Love so great that You mercifully gave Your Son to suffer my punishment and die for me . . . so great that You graciously give me blessings I don’t deserve. Your plans for me are personal and good and You want what is best for me.
You want me to spend forever in heaven with You experiencing Your best for all eternity.
I have put my trust in Your love. I believe Your love makes all things possible. I believe and I pray in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus. Amen.
God loves us. God loves you. God loves me.
His love never fails.
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.John 1:14
Perfectly. Completely. Forever. He wants each of us to be blessed with a blessed life full of love, joy, peace and so much more.
