Don't you love to get into God's Word and experience the revelation of what He is saying for your life and what He is doing among us in the world today! Through this blog, we will explore the heart of God and the flow of His Spirit. At times we will discuss those spiritual issues that many of us want to know more about.

God Loves

Me Always??

 

by Jeanne Alcott


       Jesus loves me, this I know.  How many times did some of us sing that little song as kids?  It is a great truth on which a child can form a foundation—a foundation of believing God loves them.  Jesus loves me this I know because the Bible tells me so.

       When we were a child, that was good enough.  We knew God loved us.  But somehow as we grew into being a teenager and then adulthood, that simple truth and belief started getting muddled.

       There are times we don't feel the love.  Yes, God loves me, but it feels as though there are some conditions with it now.  I know in my heart it's true that God's love is there, but it is hard to accept that when things are so hard in life.  The Lord knows those are natural tendencies and thoughts that will come to us.

       It usually happens when we don't understand why the Lord hasn't delivered us from hard circumstances or we feel hurt.  Other times we may have problems feeling His love when we’ve make a mistake; or we have failed the test to do something right and therefore please Him.  Maybe we think we have never come up to the high standards that we believe God has set for us.  We haven't fulfilled all that we believed He made us to do.  Or our character hasn't grown into the type of person the Lord could be proud of.  We've disappointed Him.

       Those are all things that try to water down the truth of God's Word that He loves you.  So today we're going to establish such a firm belief in exactly how and when you are loved that you cannot be shaken from it.  You never will feel again that God's love is far from you.  That's what the Lord wants to do for you through this.  God loves you—always!  That’s where it ends.  There's no question mark after always.  The word always means exactly what God is saying.  He means forever, for all time, for eternity.  That word also means at all times, constantly, and persistently.

       So there's nothing you can do to shake that love loose.  It's bound to you.  Isn't that a great thought!  God's love is bound to you forever, eternity, and at all times; He loves you constantly and persistently.  In your humanness you may feel you do some things that may stretch the cord of love He has tied to you, but God's Word is coming to you today to remind you that you cannot be separated from His love.

       He wants to impress upon you is that He loves you with inseparable love!  You've heard that from Romans chapter 8.  But we need to look at the bigger picture of what this is saying to us as believers.  There's no disappointment.  No doubt or hurt our lack of knowledge.  Nothing, absolutely nothing can separate you from God's love for you.


Why does it seem so hard to know God loves me at times?

       I'm thinking about a dear woman who wrote to me and said that she feels discouraged and is struggling with depression.  She's fighting health issues and so she isn’t able to do the good things of life she wants to do.  She ended by saying, "I just feel far from God and I’m very discouraged."

       How many times in your life have you felt discouraged and therefore had a hard time feeling God's love for you?  But I encourage you during those times to write this message on a sheet of paper or put it in your cell phone or tablet, then force yourself to read it every day.  Write, "This does not separate me from God's love.  His love is with me and will deliver me."  Write that down and whatever you’re facing, read it to yourself.  You'll be amazed at what that will do for your spirit.  You'll know that since God loves you and you are not separated from Him, then He is still there to help you.  Yes, He is still there.  He has not been separated from you and neither has His power and desire to help you.  He is all around you and you will get through what is trying to discourage you with the love and power of God.

       Listen, His love is so tightly bound to you, that when there is any movement in your life, He is already there to guide you through any difficulty, pain, offense—whatever need you have.  His love is tied to you so that nothing happens without His knowing it.  And He will intervene as you believe for Him to do it.
 

God is tied to you.

       Picture the Lord's love being tied to you like this.  There was a missionary who was a real hero for the people of Nigeria.  Her name was Mary Slessor.  She cared for the people so much that she began to find unwanted children on her doorstep.  In that area, life did not have value to the natives.  Evil spirits operated strongly in the area.  She had so many rescue babies who may have been killed if she didn't take care of them that they filled her home.  Talk about being a single parent!  And in a dangerous place.

       However, she knew she had God's love surrounding her and she was going to raise those kids in that same kind of love.  Just because she was in a dangerous location didn't mean that she had to be separated from His love and what He would do for her.  No matter what kind of conditions you find yourself in—the challenge of something difficult or the needs for resources or the wrongdoing you see going on around you or you may be in danger—God's love is still tied to you and that means all of His goodness and power are there to sustain you and help you be successful. So, Mary came up with a way to care for all these infants.  She had to have her own personal sleep and rest, but that's hard to do even with one infant, let alone dozens.  So she would each one of them in their own little hammock and then tie a string from each hammock to her bed.  If one of the babies needed to be comforted in the night, she would just pull the string and rock their hammock.

       The Lord has tied you to Himself.  Nothing can happen to you that He doesn't know about and He is already there to take care of your every need.  You're tied to Him with cords of love.  Feel the tug of His love for you today.  In Hosea chapter 11 God describes Himself to us like this, I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love, and I was to them as one who lifts up and eases the yoke over their cheeks, and I bent down to them and gently laid food before them.  What a picture of a loving, caring God who is tied to us with bands of love.  He lifts us up.  He draws us to Him.  He eases the burden on our life.  He bends down to lay before us the blessings and answers and help we need.  We are bound to His heart with the cords of love.  And we cannot be separated as a believer.  He loves us with inseparable love.

       When the apostle Paul wrote that nothing can separate us from the love of God, he started it by saying, "For I am persuaded beyond doubt.  I'm sure."  What is he so sure of?  That "there is nothing that exists in all creation that can come between God and us."  There's one thing in this world you can be sure of and that's how God feels towards you.  Not only that, but you can be sure of what He will do because of His love.

 

His love drives Him to action for your life.

       Yes, His love is not one that is weak or just lays to the side and watches you struggle.  It moves Him to action for you.

       In Jeremiah 31 He declares to us, The Lord appeared from of old to me [Israel], saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you.  Again I will build you and you will be built, O Virgin Israel!  You will again be adorned with your timbrels [small one-headed drums] and go forth in the dancing [chorus] of those who make merry.

       He is drawing you to Himself today to express His everlasting love.  He reassures you of His continuing faithfulness to you, to take care of what concerns you.  He is coming to build you.  Build your life up so that you will once again be as those who dance around because they are so merry.  They're happy, filled with joy at what the God of love has done in their life.  That's how He sees you.

       So no matter what you see happening today.  Know that God's love is wrapping around you and drawing you to Him.  He's going to show you just how faithful He is for your life!  He is building the answer you need.  So get ready to dance!  Like David in the Bible, dance before the Lord as you worship and praise Him for all that He's doing.  Because He loves you — always!  And nothing can separate you from that love.

There is greatness in you.  It’s not that you are a superhero or superhuman in yourself.  But you have a “supernatural greatness” in you that God wants to see come out.  He’s given you the ability to show the significance He’s placed on your life and operate in all that He’s given you.  Do something with it!  Don’t allow Satan to stop the effect you can create in your life and the kingdom of God.
