The moment you realize how much God loves you, everything changes!
John 3:16 | “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.”
Romans 8:31, 32 | “What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”
Think about this again and again:
If God did not hold back His one and only begotten Son from you, why should He hold back anything else from you? If He gave up His one and only begotten Son for you, shouldn’t He give you every other thing you ask for?
Today’s bible verses are often taken for granted, but they tell you something very powerful: GOD LOVES YOU!
Now, you may be thinking, “But, if God Loves me as much as these bible verses claim, why is He allowing so much suffering and hardship in my life?”
That’s a very good question. In fact, if you’re an honest person, then you must have asked the same question at some point or the other after reading today’s bible verses.
But, if God Loves me as much as these bible verses claim, why is He allowing so much suffering and hardship in my life?
I have an answer: PUT GOD’S LOVE TO THE TEST!
My answer is not churchy. I hate churchy answers. My answer is practical and common sense: Put the claims of those verses to the test.
If you’ve experienced God’s love and are certain He loves you, then appreciate Him today with all your heart.
But, if you’re struggling with believing that God loves you, if the sufferings and hardships of your life are making you question God’s love, then pray the following simple prayer:
PRAYER | Dear God, today’s bible verses claim that you love me. However, my circumstances make it difficult for me to accept that claim. Please, if you love me as today’s bible verses claim, do something in my life that will convince me. Thank You.
