The Love of God

In the last few weeks I have been thinking a lot about the love of God. Thinking about how much He loves us and cares for us, it continuously amazes me. He loved us before we were born! He knew us and had plans for us before time even began.

Time is of no relevance to Him. See, He is Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. The future as we know it; He has already been there. The past that we went through; He was there before. He saw our lives and the choices we would make. He already knew if we would accept or reject Him and his love. Even then, when He knew which ones would reject him, He sent his Son to die for them and He still loves them.

He loves us! Every part of us! He knows the number of hairs on our head. The Bible says,
Matthew 6:26- "Behold the fowl of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?"

Luke 12:7- "But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are more valuable than many sparrows".

God loves us more than we could ever imagine. Sometimes in life we don't think He is there but He promises us He will never leave us or forsake us.
Hebrews 13:5-"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

We do not always see why our life is the way it is. We question why God allows us to go through things in our life when it hurts or seems to make our life worse. Even then God loves us when we don't think he is there. He knows where we are in life and how we feel. In our time of weakness He wants to be our strength. He wants to be our everything. He is a jealous God and wants our love and affection. His love is unfathomable. He is a great and amazing heavenly Father.

Until next time,
