God is with you every single day. That is His promise. He is with you every moment. In everything you’re going through. It’s easier to believe that God is with you when everything is going well or when you’re behaving right. It can be more difficult to believe that He is still there when you’re not acting like you’d like to. And yet…
As the pastor says in the documentary, “The Heart of Man,” it’s easy to read that God loves you, that He’s beside you, but it’s quite another thing to experience Him beside you in prison, in addiction, in failure, in sickness, over and over and over again. That’s what changes us.
When you read in the Bible that God loves you, know that this means His love is unconditional. It’s not an insurance policy with fine print at the bottom of the page that says, “I love you as long as you’re perfect, you don’t sin, you do everything I tell you, you’re not afraid…”
God isn’t like that. His love is unlimited and unconditional. Even…
- In the pit,
- In prison,
- In addiction,
- In mistakes,
…God loves you! God doesn’t love sin, true, but He loves the sinner. He loves endlessly. He loves YOU endlessly.
Here’s what He’s speaking to you today: ““For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you.” (the Bible, Isaiah 54:10, NLT)
I’d like to encourage you today to ask the Lord’s forgiveness if you feel you need to do so and to receive His love all over again. May your heart be light and your conscience appeased. Jesus paid the price for your freedom.
P.S. Perhaps the subject of today’s message doesn’t directly speak to you, but you know someone who may be blessed by it. If so, please share this message with that person…his/her life could be transformed! Be blessed today!
