One of the things that made me stay away from God during my lowest season of life in my teenage years was because I felt I didn’t deserve His love. In those dark moments, sin was a little bit soothing and comforting. It was, because I felt I didn’t have to pretend to be something I was not before the people I was with then. The other side to this was that because I was doing what I was doing, I felt there was no way I could ever receive God’s unfailing love. I have met with people who have felt same way.
God’s love is limitless. Romans 8:38-39 says;
35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[a]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 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.
The above scripture gives me so much comfort whenever I read it. It’s a reminder that nothing can ever pull me away from the love of Christ Jesus.
The love of Christ for us doesn’t diminish when we sin. It’s not measured by our righteousness. He died for us while we were still sinners.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8)
So don’t buy into the lies of the devil. Our Good Father’s arms are always wide opened to receive us. He still loves you!
God’s love truly doesn’t make sense. This post reminds me of the songs below.
I pray today that you will be opened to His reckless love.
I pray that you will stop fighting the idea that this kind of love exist and accept the purest form of love you can ever get.
I pray that your heart will be softened towards God.
I pray that you will be able to look past your mistakes and see His arms wide opened to receive you.
I rebuke the voice of the devil and I call him a liar.
I pray that you will not accept his lies and you will come to the knowledge of who you are in God.
I pray you will accept these three words you most likely have heard before.
GOD LOVES YOU!
