Just think about
how much God loves us!
God never has to ask us
what we’re thinking about.
He knows our hopes and desires,
our aspirations and dreams.
HE LOVES US.”
This was the beautiful Valentine’s Day card my mother and father in law sent to Floyd and I on Valentine’s Day. I tear up every time I read it…..it really speaks to my soul. I suppose it gave me a glimpse of God’s love for me in a new way.
The scripture says, “ O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my every thought when far away. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. You both precede and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.” Psalm 139:1-5 NLT.
Verse 3 in the Good News Translations says,
“You see me.”
I love that concept…..God sees me. He sees every desire, every hope, every dream. There is something very liberating about, not having to create a check list of your dreams to get God to notice them and which ones have not been met yet! This revelation is incredibly freeing!!! When God is working on you and the timing of your life’s purposes, those feelings of being “invisible” are VERY REAL and those lies hurt while you still believe them…..
…..then the truth comes over and over again and starts to absorb into the core of who you are…….then the lies begin to pale in comparison to His truth, as in Corinthians saying I am known and Deuteronomy and Zechariah calling me the apple of His eye! That’s why it is so important that you consistently read the Bible. Not so you can become a better Christian….so that the truth of His word absorbs over and over again into the core of who you are…..then you begin to believe what God says about you instead of the lies.
Someone recently asked me if I really believed what I taught…. that God loves me? My response rolled right off of my tongue before I even had a chance to contemplate it, “I definitely believe it more now than I used to.”
Oh, to understand the depths of His love for us!! What a journey……
Just like you, I am learning of His love one revelation at a time. I grow in my belief with each truth spoken to my soul (like in the card above or each time I read a scripture). It is a life-giving relationship that I entered into with my King. Somedays I “feel” more loved than others, but I definitely have more revelation of His love for me today than I did 40, 30, 20, 10, 5, or even 1 year ago!! Thank you God!!
Friends, know that He sees you today…..not in a way that wants to catch you doing wrong. He sees YOU! Your heart, your motives, your dreams…..He sees WHO you are and WHY you are who you are.
HE SEES YOU….. HE KNOWS YOU….. and HE LOVES YOU ALWAYS!!
