Do you ever struggle with rejection?
Have you ever wondered if you’re loved?
Have you ever struggled with feelings of unworthiness?
Do you know God loves you?
Has anyone ever told you just how much you are loved…. just how much God loves you?
How would you describe the love between a parent and child?
I can tell you, as a mother, I love my children beyond measure. There isn’t anything they could do or say that could make me stop loving them. Loving them unconditionally doesn’t mean I like or agree with everything they do; but, it does mean that no matter what choices they make I will always be available to them if/when they need me. I cannot always fix their problems because there ARE natural consequences to decisions; but, I will always listen and help guide them to make better choices in the future.
You see, I’ve learned to love my children in this way because that is how Father God loves us, His children. God’s love for you and for me is in such abundant supply, that He sacrificed his only biological Son, Jesus, so that you and I might be saved; spending eternity in connection with them.
So, when those “good enough?” “unworthy?” “loveable?” questions creep into your thoughts, repeat the words from 2 Corinthians 10:5, ‘and every proud thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to obey Christ.’ Then speak words of Truth.
Jesus died to save you, in that he took your place. (And mine) That is how much you are loved. You are loved beyond measure; and if you believe anything different… well, it’s a lie from the pit of hell. Spend time in God’s Word and find out for yourself just how loved you are.
