God’s Love

So, we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 1 John 4:16 (ESV)

I don’t know about you, but I spend too much time thinking that I’m unlovable. I stop and ask myself, why do I feel this way?

Then, I realize that this is a lie the enemy wants me to believe about myself and he uses it against me when I let my guard down.

Back when I was a teenager, living in California, us hippies held up Peace, Make Love, Not War, or Let’s Boogie signs. But, one sign my heart had a hard time believing was that God is Love. My view of God’s love didn’t exist.

Many years later, I’ve realized that it’s the truth of God’s Love for me that’s brought me through the darkest paths imaginable.

Taped to my desk wall is a good reminder of what God wants for my life and what Satan uses to destroy me.

God wants to still me, lead me, enlighten me, forgive me, calm me, encourage me, and comfort me.

Satan’s schemes rush me, frighten me, pushes me, confuses me, condemns me, stresses me out, discourages me, and worries me.

Don’t let Satan’s lies win or wipe out what God has planned for you.

Jesus died for me and His Love lives through me.

What about you? Where are you in your spiritual journey? Are you living in God’s love?
