“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord (NKJV).”
1 John 4:16 “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
There are times in life that things happen that make us feel that God does not love us. Sometimes it seems like everything around us is falling apart, and that God has forsaken us, and that He is about His business in heaven and does not have any spare time to attend to us. Sometimes it seems like we are going down and that there is no help for us. At such moments, the enemy always wants to make us doubt the love of God for us because he knows it’s our anchor against the drifting waves of trouble. The enemy always wants to pull a fast one on us by making us doubt God’s love for us.
Beloved, no matter what it seems like around you, never doubt God’s love for you. God is eternal, and so is His love for us. God is love and He loves all the time. God’s love for us is unwavering and uncheckered. Beloved, never doubt God’s love for you, come what may. The adversary’s way is to put pressure on you through afflictions so you may doubt God’s love for you. But if you will rise up in the face of trouble and will acknowledge and profess God’s love for you, you will most certainly overcome.
This is one erroneous belief that many of God’s children are nursing: “We will never face challenges because God loves us.” That you are God’s beloved does not mean that you will not face challenges. However, it is your faith in the love of God that will put you over every challenge and rough circumstance of life. This is the reason you must not doubt God’s love for you – it is your competitive advantage. No matter the pressure, stay true to God’s love. God’s love and faith in it is the way to see into the realm of the Spirit. It is the way you will see the escape path from the challenge. Those who doubt God’s love are blinded from seeing the way out of their challenges; but that is not your portion in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I am loved by my heavenly Father. I declare that I know and have believed God’s love for me, regardless of what my situation says, therefore my situation must align with what His love has done for me. Amen.
