The greatest love of all is the love of God. His love is unwavering, unchanging, beautiful, steadfast, absolute, all-powerful, consuming, pure, restoring, unconditional, gracious, healing, kind, and the only love that will ever satisfy you.
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” -Jeremiah 31:3
Gods love is everlasting and unfailing. He will never stop loving you. You can be the worst person on the planet and he will still love you the same. It so crazy to think of a love like this when the worlds version of love changes all the time and is so conditional, but Gods love is nothing like human love. We can love someone one minute and not even care for them the next, but Gods love is completely pure. We don’t have to try to earn it because he gives it to us freely. I once heard someone once say “God loves you more in one moment than anyone can love you in a lifetime”. That is sometimes even hard to comprehend, to think, someone can love you their whole life and can even make you happy but God loves you more in just one moment that anyone else can in your entire life.
Some people think, well God doesn’t love me after all the things I have done or said but that’s not true. He loves you more than you even know. In the bible it says, “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we are still sinners” -Romans 5:8. That means that he loved us before we even came to him, before we even knew him, when we were living in sin and not following him. He has loved us through it all even when you are as far from Him as possible because his love is unconditional and he loves you through it all. In every season and every moment he chose you. He picked you. He purposed you. He LOVES you!
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow, not even the power of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below indeed- nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” -Romans 8:38-39
Romans 8:38-39 is one of my favorite scripture on Gods love for us. I am in awe that God tells us that “nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God”. This scripture just reminds me that no matter what happens in the entire universe, nothing can take away the love that God has for us.
Declare: Gods love is like no other. His love gives me value and purpose. His love is steadfast and will never leave me. His love for me is the purest love I will ever receive. It is unconditional and I don’t have to earn Gods love but he gives it to me freely. Gods love can restore my broken heart and hurt. His love is all that I will ever need. I will pursue him and love Him because he first loved me. Gods love is the greatest love of all!
“Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.” -Psalm 136:26
