You have a God that loves you extraordinarily
You have a God that loves you extraordinarily.
Are going through deep water? He is with you. Are you going through fire? He is with you. Is the past chasing you? He has made you free. Is your present difficult? He is with you right now. Is the future worrying you? He has plans for your future, TRUST in him.
Romans 8:38 says: “For I am persuaded that nothing will separate me from the love of God “
I am assured, I am persuaded, I am convinced THAT HIS LOVE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME!
I invite you today to assure yourself in his love and DECLARE HIS WORD to the circumstances you may be living today. God has deposited faith within you…put it to work towards your own favor.
Remember the example that Jesus gave us when he was in the boat, (Matthew 8:22-27) and suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves, He woke up in the mist of people (his disciples) full of fear, fearing for their lives. Jesus did not move by what people around him did or felt.
Jesus was persuaded that he was a child of God. Jesus knew he had the Word and the authority the Father gave him. He rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”
Jesus shared his inheritance with you, he renounced to be the Only begotten son of God because he wanted to share with us what was his, and now we are God’s children by the sacrifice he made on the cross. By his blood we have been forgiven, cleansed and made children of God, and as such we have authority.
John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:”
Romans 8:38-39
For I am persuaded that not even death or life,
angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers,
height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us
from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
The same Spirit that raised Jesus from death LIVES within you. Only BELIEVE and speak to your circumstances, declare THE WORD OF GOD! Persist! Press on! Persist!
Remember NOTHING will separate you from the love of God!
God can surprise you, if you allow Him to.
Today God surprised me…He knows the things we need to be inspire and motivated. He knows us a lot, even more than we know our selves. God is not a distant God to the human being.
He loves you…receive his love today, give thanks for how He loves you and for even seeing beautiful things in you, things that sometimes not even you see…get closer to him, not only in your mind; speak to him as a friend, and you will see what beautiful gestures He has for you.
Do you know what, if you think that your parents, husband, wife, cousin, best friend loves you very much and have great wishes for you. That’s good. Or, is possible that you are surrounded by very special people, who really wish you well in life, and helped you through difficult times. And that is good! Or maybe you don’t have the support that you wish, or that friend that loves you genuinely. Whatever the case is. No one will love you more that The One who had the idea to create you! You are God’s idea!
Remember that every time God created something he said: “it’s good”. He really backs up his ideas, he makes his ideas reality, and they are good. Even when men failed he still backed up his idea, and did not abandoned it, He made a plan to recue it. He fought until death, so nothing will separate you from Him.
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
Psalm 34:8-9
What an interesting word used in this verse. ‘taste’. The Psalmist invites us to have a taste…and also describes it as that IT tastes good, and implies it is satisfying. Has anyone suggested to you to taste something like a pastry at Panera Bread as an example, or any other restaurant? Have you tried it because someone suggested it, even if you may not find it attractive on its own? And you gave it a chance and took a bite and tried it and maybe even had a second bite to decide if you liked it. But you gave your self a chance to try it and try it again.
Do you know that what the Psalmist is inviting us to do exactly is to try God, to taste God. And take from Him. He is not only telling us to taste but to enjoy because it is GOOD to taste GOD. He even takes us further because he says “Blessed is the man who not only tastes but trusts in Him” WOW…I guess that after a little taste, when you take the moment to truly taste you also come to the point to trust…that each bite will be as tasty as before, since you had a few bites. What I am trying to say is that a taste may bring you to develop a trust for Him and that TRUST can bring you to get to know God, not only for the things (blessings) he can give you. Even better, he can bring you to know WHO HE IS.
Maybe as you are reading these words, you are saying to yourself “I already know Him”, and that’s great! But if you notice the Psalmist quotes: “you, His saints” he is trying to invite his saints, those who already know Him, to take an attitude to taste…
Think about this: It is easy for a good relationship to grow cold. He wants us to take an attitude to taste…to slow down for a moment and enjoy a taste from God. We should take advantage that we have Him and take our relationship to a deeper level.
He is the bread of life; his word is bread to live. In his word you will find peace and provision. The verse also says: There is no want to those who fear Him.
Wow, that’s incredible!…Today I want to encourage you to take a taste!. He doesn’t want you to adapt your life to a religion, or a family tradition, or to keep a distant relationship with Him, or that you may seek him only when you need his help, HE WANTS A DEEP RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU! YES! A RELATIONSHIP THAT YOU CAN ENJOY AND VALUE!
