Loved by God

heart bible

The Spirit of Love is in the air and what better way to celebrate than with words from the greatest love story ever written. I love how every verse and every story in the bible reads like a poem written by the Author of Love. In His own words the Creator of all professes to the entire world that He deeply and intimately loves you.

Intimately Loved and Known

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. This is why I saved you; covered you in the redemptive blood of my Son.

I gave you My peace that surpasses understanding and placed my Holy Spirit inside of you. You will never be alone. You are intimately loved and known.

The very hairs of your head are all numbered. Yes, I took the time to count them. You are intimately loved and known.

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.

I blessed you and chose you to be a reflection of who I am.

I have seen you at your best and at your worst and I have loved you through it all. You have been tried, judged and the verdict is in. You are and always will be innocent in my eyes thanks to My Son.

I promise that I will never leave you or forsake you. You are intimately loved and known by Me.

I care about the things you care about. Don’t be afraid to let Me in. I am here to help you not to harm you, to give you hope and an amazing future.

Your forgotten prayers, not yet formulated prayers, your unspoken prayers and not so perfect prayers.

Your thoughts, your hopes, your dreams and desires.

Your fears, your mind, the very depth of your heart, spirit and soul is intimately loved and known by Me.

 I am not a Man that lies or tells tales nor am I one that makes promises I cannot keep. Trust in Me, trust My Love. Trust My loving thoughts toward you.

My promise to you is this, neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate you from Me. 

I Love you and this Love will never fail you.

You are intimately known and loved by Me.

Intimately Known

You are loved, saved, sanctified, at peace with God, covered in the redemptive blood of the Lamb, filled with the power of the living God inside of you; you are intimately loved and known.

“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” (Matthew 10:30) Your Heavenly Father took the time to count them; you are intimately loved and known. Your forgotten prayers, not yet formulated prayers, your unspoken prayers, your thoughts, your hopes, your dreams and desires, your fears, your mind, the very depth of your heart, spirit and soul is intimately loved and known.

God’s living word has this to say about you, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5) God was and still is actively and intimately involved in your creation, your purpose, your ministry and every area of your life. You have been set apart for His purpose, created to be a world changer, chosen to represent Him and His Heavenly Kingdom. You are God’s chosen one, intimately loved and known.

At The Cross

“Knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When He had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.” (John 19:28-30)

Jesus said that He came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) When Christ died, He took our sins and burdens with Him. His death gave us life, His suffering gave us freedom, and His sacrifice gave us the victory.

Let go of the past that haunts you, you have a faithful and loving God who says you can leave it at the cross.

Your burdens, your worry, it’s not yours to bear, leave it at the cross. Your pain and your hurt, your Heavenly Father is a God who cares for you so much that He collects every tear, He can repair your broken heart just trust Him and leave it at the cross.

Your fear and your doubt, that’s not the life He wants for you free yourself and leave it at the cross.

God loves you so much that He gave His only begotten Son so that you may be free from all that binds you and free to live the abundant and victorious life that He desires for you. Let it all go and leave it at the cross.
