God first Loved you
As christians we all go through our ups and downs. We go through times of financial difficulty, loss, pain, troubles and disappointments. But when things are not working out the way you planned and want them to be,that doesn’t mean God does not love you. Whether you prayed for something and have not received your blessing yet, or have not received your miracle yet does not mean God does not love you. Whether you got that job or you did not. Whether someone close to you died or not. God still loves you. His love is unconditional. Its not based on how much money you got in your bank account or how big your house is. God loves you just the way you are. The fact that you are going through a rough time right now doesn’t mean, God has stop loving you or God doesn’t love you anymore.
35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[o]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” God thought of you before He formed you. From your eyes,to nose to teeth to feet to your smile. You are very precious to God. Money cannot buy how precious you are to God. He loves you and that should make you love yourself even more.He is pleased with every part of your being, so you should be happy with yourself and not feel condemned. You are the apple of God’s eye. So even if your mother or father don’t accept you God does. Because He formed you, not them.
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Can you imagine, God knows the number of hairs on your head. He cares about every tiny detail of you. From how you feel about waking up to work today and how you feel about yourself. Everything that you may think is irrelevant , its relevant to God. Because He cares about every single detail of your life.
No despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
God doesn’t love your best friend more than you, or your sister more than you, or your pastor more than you. Know that no matter what is happened in your life and no matter what happens He still loves you. The fact that your friend is got a job or is married. Or that the issues you are facing is bigger than your sister doesn’t mean He loves them more. God loves you as much as He loves them.
God loves you soo much, that even before He created you He had a plan for you. Jesus died for you even before you were born. God’s love for you is beforehand not after.
Even when we were in sin, He still loved us. Romans 5:8
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
God hates sin , but He loves YOU. And because He loves you, He will do anything to get you right with Him. He will do anything to get you out of sin. And so God went to extent of saying ” I Love you soo much that I will sacrifice what I love for you”. I will do anything to get a relationship with you. Even if it means death I will do it”. And that’s what Jesus came to do.
All the material blessings that this current generation see as love, will breakdown, will fade away. Then you will have to replace it. So that’s why whether you received material things or not should not confirm God’s love for you. God’s love is beyond that, God’s love does not fade away. He loves you soo much and spending time on earth is not enough for Him. He wants to see you with Him in heaven to.
Yes sin can be very deceptive. From a glance it may look pleasing but the consequences are damaging to the spirit,body and soul.But more importantly God who loves you unconditionally hates it. God created us, and knows what’s good for us and what’s bad for us. He wants the best for us, He doesn’t want you to be destroyed. He doesn’t want you to after all the hardship here on earth you suffer in hell as well. But most importantly, He LOVES YOU. He has great plans for you and wants your journey here on earth to be worth it.
With all the issues of christians been persecuted around the world. God’s word will tell us the answer. Nothing can separate me and you from God’s love. God still loves those who are being persecuted. He first loved us before bringing us on this earth. He knows earth is not our final destination, earth is not our home. If it were we will remain here forever.
Rest in God’s peace and seek Him, knowing that no matter what’s happening around you God loves you.
