So Have I Loved You

One of the lies the father-of-lies likes to throw at me is: “God does not love you.”  Sometimes he would make the lie even more real by adding: “God does not love you because you are not worthy to be loved.”  I get these “God does-not-love-you” lies quite often in my life.  They usually come when I need God the most.

HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, NOT HOLDING TO THE TRUTH, FOR THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. WHEN HE LIES, HE SPEAKS HIS NATIVE LANGUAGE, FOR HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF LIES.  YET BECAUSE I TELL THE TRUTH, YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME!
(John 8:44-45).

Sometimes the father-of-lies tells me that the Lord Jesus DOES love me, but only under certain conditions: when I am good, acceptable, or worthy.  Other times, the murderer tells me that as soon as my pain shows, God will stop loving me. Be aware of the murderer’s lies.  There is no truth in him.  Listen to what the Lord Jesus tells you…and BELIEVE. Allow Him to have the last say in your life—Words you will receive and believe.

FOR I AM CONVINCED THAT 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 US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD
(Romans 8:38-39).

Believe that your pain will not separate you from God’s Love for you, neither will your fear, your anger, your guilt, your sadness, jealousy, confusion, bitterness, or hopelessness, neither will your past mistakes, neither will your unworthiness, shame, rejection, condemnation, or abandonment, neither will the belief “God does not love me.”

What has the father-of-lies told YOU?

Believe that the Perfect Father wants to lavish you with His Father Love.  It is when you feel abandoned that God wants to tell you that He loves you.  It is when you feel ashamed and deformed that the Perfect Father wants to tell you that He accepts you.  It is when you feel rejected and very alone that the Lord Jesus wants to tell you that you are worthy to Him. Will you invite His Presence into your pain?

PRAYER: Thank you, Perfect Father, that nothing separates me from Your Love for me, not even my pain, my past mistakes, or any words the father-of-lies might hurl at me. How great is the Love You lavish on me…that I might be called Your child.

Maintain an Awareness

There is someone who came to bring Heaven to earth, into your troubled heart, into your dark mind, into your dead spirit, into your disease-ridden body, and into your broken life. His name is Jesus Christ, the Perfect Father’s Son.
