My Beloved Sisters,
I trust God that all is well with you: spirit, soul and body. I pray that God's grace will continue to uphold us and prepare us for His coming.
Today, I would like to talk about something that's dear to the Father's heart - His unwavering love for us.
I have a 13months old son and each time I look at him, I see the best child ever. I have friends whom we had our babies at about the same time and whenever we talked about our children's milestones each one of us have this 'fire' in our eyes. To me, my child is the best and to them theirs is the best also, their shortcoming regardless.
This reminds me of Isaiah 49:15 ĺNLT) that says "Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!"
As if this assurance isn't enough: consider Matthew 7:11 "So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him."
Let the (good) way our earthly parents loves us give us an incline to how crazy God is about us.
I have wondered a couple of times on how I would be able to share without bias the love I have for my son now with his siblings when they arrive. I was told by those who have more than one child that all the love I think I have now is not all that there is to me. I still have loads of love that is yet to be tapped into.
No wonder our God has enough love to go round all his children. The multibreasted One! Oh! how God
loves you and I.
The question now is: have you received His love? Sometimes we ourselves downplay the love of God towards us by comparing ourselves to others, seeing ourselves as undeserving. What this does is to create friction between you and your creator.
Now I get why Paul described the love of God for us as inseparable, reckless and unending - Romans 8.
What is stopping from you from receiving the Master's love? your inadequacies? Look to Jesus, He is our sufficiency. In actual fact, there's nothing we did or will ever do to earn His love. Just enjoy it.
It's only a trick of the devil to make you think God doesn't love you enough, the more you make yourself open to receive, the more you get.
You can make yourself open to receive His love in the place of worship.
God loves us like crazy!
Loads of love,
