God the Father loves us in a way that’s immeasurable and unknown to us. He loves us in a way that speaks to our spirits and elevates our minds moving our hearts to compassion. He loves us in a way we marvel to understand and with all of our reasoning, knowledge and insight--still his love moves past the width of us. The compassion of God sustains me in a way that swallows me up as I meditate on the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. The unmatched sacrifice that allows me to type these words, to be in his presence, to breath in and out, to wake up, to rise…oh how He loves you and I!
His love for us never leaves us cold and alone he comforts us with the quilt of the Holy Ghost, the mighty, moving sweeping presence of God that brings POWER. Oh what a wonderful gift this is! To have the Lord Jesus shed his blood as he lay his life down just so that I may open my eyes…blessed to see another day…blessed to even speak his name…blessed even in my faults…blessed day in and day out knowing I’m not nearly enough…for the sacrifice, oh how he loves us.
Gods love for us is magnified when we know, that we know that we’ve fallen short…even in our pain, heartache and fear the love of God remains near…I would be remised to talk of the love of God all day and not ever mention his unfailing Grace. His grace is sufficient for us…sheltering us all the day long…as weakness rears it’s shameful head grace and mercy create a path we’re unworthy to travel…but because of his sovereignty…he created this path just for you and for me.
God’s love for you will cause your body to bow down and tears to fall as the majesty of his love leaves you awe. As you count up the cost when you turned away from him, placing that thing in your hands once again…like a child with an object they should not have. You picked up the object once again…toiling and tossing it, refusing to surrender it…you left it in your hands…and found yourself hurt once again. But what did your Father do when he saw you in tears…he picked you up and held you and extinguished your fears. That’s God’s love for us even in weakness, disobedience and pain you’ll find his arms wrapped around you once again. Oh how He loves you and I, so much so it brings tears to my eyes. Where can I go in this life before me where God the Father is not beside me…sheltering, calming and loving me…opening blind eyes so that now I see oh how my Savior loves an imperfect me.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
