God Really Does Love You

We all have heard that God cares for us and that He loves us, but do you really believe that God loves you? We know He loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. But do you believe in your heart that God loves you?

As a child, I always knew my parents loved me. Even when I messed up and did something that I shouldn’t have and they had to punish me, I still knew that they loved me. But that hasn’t always been the case with God.

There have been times in my life when everything seemed to be going wrong and I can’t seem to find my way out that I feel as though God is punishing me for my failures. Just as my parents had to punish me when I made a mistake, I believed that God had to be doing the same thing. Right?  I mean, after all, we do call him, Father.

Then one day God finally showed me that he doesn’t look at His children that way. That He wasn’t looking to punish me or anyone else for that matter. He showed me that even though others may have been angry with me that He wasn’t. God took all his anger and wrath for my sins and your sins out on His son Jesus at the Cross. And since then God only seeks to share His love and His grace with each and every one of us.

So now, whenever I find myself feeling unworthy or a complete failure in life I just remind myself what Hebrews 4:16 says, “Come boldly to His throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace.”

Mercy and Grace are the gifts God wants for us. Not condemnation and anger. God loves you too much to see you living a life of defeat and failure. He wants you living an abundant life through His son Jesus. So take comfort dear heart that no matter how bad you mess up and no matter how hard life may get, God is always with you, to guide you, to love you and to protect you, because you are His beloved child.
