“The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love”
(Jeremiah 31:3)

I am eternally Loved.

This is not some touching human emotion, but the promise of the Everlasting God for all Eternity. It is borne out for us in the great love statements of Scripture.

  • “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
  • “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love” (John 15:9)
  • “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him” ( 1 John 4:16)

God does not put up with us or regret us. He loves us – and He loves us with the same love that He has for His Beloved Son. This is an unlimited, unconditional and creative love that is prepared to give everything for the well-being and blessing of the one loved. And no matter where we may be or have been, when we turn to Him His joy knows no bounds.

His door is always open to us – day and night. There is no need for anyone to approach Him for us. We can enter into His presence at any time and in any state – certain of an open-hearted welcome. We can share our hearts with Him – our hopes and joys, our fears and shame, our longings and hurts. He will listen to them, treasure them and respond to them. And when we listen we might also hear Him sharing Himself with us.

God is Love – there is no better word to describe Him.

Ask Him to help you to receive His love – and trust His response.


Father God, I need Your Love – I so much want to be loved with Your love – please pour Your love into my heart by the Holy Spirit whom you have given to us, and help me to know, receive and respond to Him. Amen.
