Live As If You Know God Loves You Intensely!

C. Hayden
In Romans 8:31-39, we read one of the most amazing anthems illustrating what so many of us struggle
to believe. That of how great God’s love is for us! We know that we need to love God, and we do. But
do we know that God loves us with an everlasting love. We are His children and the sheep of His
pasture, as we read in Psalm 100:3. But in Romans 8:31-32 we read, “What then shall we say to these
things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up
for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” God did not hold back His most prized treasure to save us, His only begotten.
In verses 38-39 of that same passage, the Word declares, “For
I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor
principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to
come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of
God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Did you get that? NOTHING will ever separate you from God’s
love for you. He will not, will not, will not stop loving you, no matter what. He did not come to this
earth and die on a cross to pay for sins just to give up on you now. Don’t let anyone or anything keep
you from remaining in His love.
When tragedy strikes you or your family, seasons of hardship darken your door, or hope seems distant,
know God has not left you nor will He ever leave you. Deuteronomy 31:8 reminds us, “The Lord goes
before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be
discouraged.” David Crowder wrote a song about the fact that God really loves us called, “God Really
Loves Us.”(Haha) If you are struggling this week, it may be a good idea to play this tune a few times and
allow it to sink in your spirit.
Be blessed even more you wonderful children of God!!
