Trusting God Made Easy (III)

Memory Verse: "See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are..." (1 Jn.3:1, NLT)

Scripture Reading: Rm.8:31-39

Here's a third reason why you shouldn't sell yourself short on matters of faith:

  • God loves you. 
It sounds like a cliché, but let it sink in.

Meditate on it.

Believe it.

And know that the cross where Christ died is the demonstration of just how much God loves you.

You can go ahead and trust Him [your prevailing circumstance notwithstanding] because He loves you, yes YOU.

You can draw near to Him in full assurance of faith because He loves you. You can serve Him because He loves you. Without an understanding of this love, life is pointless and helpless.

Jesus loves you so much He not only gave His life on the cross for your sins, but He is even "the author and perfecter of our faith." (Heb.12:2)

Understanding of this truth takes all the pressure off. You don't have to "work up" a stronger faith. Simply trust Jesus, and you will find that God is giving you the faith to believe in Him and in His promises.

Ponder Point: God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.

Action Point: Trust His love.

Prayer Point: Father in the name of Jesus, open my heart to understand Your love for me so I can accept and receive Your unconditional love towards me. Amen.
