How can we know for sure that God is always with us and willing to help? Because of God’s love for us! The love of God is the sure foundation of our faith in Him. His love gives us the absolute assurance that we are never alone or without help. God’s love for us is unfailing, it never stops, it is eternal. God’s love is the reason we are alive. The more we become rooted and grounded in God’s love, the more we will become happy, fruitful and fulfilled.
‘I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.’ (Ephesians 3:18)
The apostle Paul suffered severe persecution, everywhere he went, because he preached the life saving gospel of Jesus Christ, while facing the hatred of the religious leaders. In the midst of all the pain and warfare he experienced, Paul wrote these incredible words:
‘I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ (Romans 8:39)
And it was the compassionate love of God that motivated him to keep fighting the good fight of faith, to reveal Jesus Christ to the world. God had poured out His own mercy in the heart of Paul.
‘For Christ’s love compels us….’ (2 Cor. 5:14)
Because of God’s love, Paul was willing to face the hatred, rejection, offense, betrayal and even torture from his enemies. He had only one desire: reveal to people that God loves them with a love that goes beyond their wildest dreams.
‘But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ, even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.’ (Ephesians 2:5)
Why did Jesus Christ die such a horrible, torturing death on the cross? Why did the merciful Father in heaven allow sinners to beat up his beloved Son? Why did the Almighty allow sinners to humiliate his perfect servant with their dirty hands, while He had NEVER EVER committed one single sin?
Angels were watching in a state of shock when they saw how their great and glorious Master, the Creator of heaven and earth, the Lord of hosts, was humiliated and taunted by demons and sinners. The powers of the universe shuddered and trembled when Jesus died. Even Satan couldn’t believe his own obscured eyes when he saw how this mighty Son of God, who was so full of the amazing power of God, could be killed so easily. He could hardly believe it. This same Jesus Christ cast out thousands of his demons, and healed tens of thousands people who had been overcome by the devil… And now… he was defenseless, powerless, a willing lamb… Why? Satan had no clue what was behind it, he didn’t understand.
‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’ (John 3:16)
‘God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ (Romans 5:8)
God loves us so much more, than we will ever be able to understand. No matter what’s going on in our life. No matter what challenges will come to us. No matter how much pain may burn in our heart. No matter how many treasures of love, luck, hope or blessings may be taken away from us…
Beloved child of God, please remember this, all your life: God is on your side. He’s not against you. He is your helper. He’s your friend. Your healer. Your rescuer. Whatever happens. Whatever will come upon your path of life. He can and will turn it to the good. Why? Because we are so holy and perfect? No. Because of God’s love for us.
‘We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.’ (Romans 8:28)
Many of us think we need to earn God’s love, by becoming perfect christians first. But I ask you, in the precious name of Jesus: stop trying to earn God’s love. He loved you, long before you were even born! He knew you before you knew Him! God is love and He is eternal, so His love for you was already burning with incredible intensity, long before you ever existed…
‘We love, because he first loved us.’ (1 John 4:19)
I encourage you to stop trying to earn that which is freely given and waiting for you to start receiving and enjoying it with all your heart. Relax in His eternal arms of comfort and compassion. Find rest in Him, who knows all about you and who says:
‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.’ (Jeremiah 31:3)
When you learn to trust His love, you will grow stronger and develop faith. His love is the core foundation of our relationship with Him. Let God’s love fill your heart. It’s the reason of your existence.
