God’s Love is the Greatest Love

God's love is everlasting

We long to be loved, don’t we?

Unfortunately, we tend to spend most of our time “looking for love in all the wrong places.”

We expect our best friends to manifest their unwavering loyalty, only to be wounded when they seem to have forgotten us. We seek approval on social media, and inevitably come up short. We long for our spouse to love us with fervent devotion, but illness, stress, and apathy so often weaken the intensity of their love.

Human love is capricious, but the love of God endures forever.

The words in the above verse, “I have loved you with an everlasting love,” are spoken by the only One who can speak them with absolute truth and confidence.

In your daily bible study, take note of the countless times God demonstrates His love. Commit such verses to your heart. Write them down and memorize them. When dark times come (and they will come) you will be armed with the assurance of His presence, your heart shielded from the piercing darts of despair.

 

Are you afflicted by pangs of loneliness, overwhelming grief, or crippling anxiety today?

Have you suffered betrayal from a spouse or friend?

Do you feel ignored? Forgotten? Misunderstood?

Be comforted, my friend: Your Heavenly Father, the Eternal and Omnipotent King, sees you and loves you with His incomparable and unfailing love.


Next week, while the U.S. is celebrating the Hallmark-holiday of Valentine’s Day, we will be turning our thoughts to the nature of God’s Love. I hope you will join me for this little miniseries!

  1. A very reflecting word my brother that beams light back to your previous post of forgiveness. And even more so with referencing the two together, the thought of “it’s a lot easier to forgive an enemy you seldom see than a loved one you live with” comes to mind. Regardless though, as your blog holds true, His love never fails. Blessed be the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in need, with the comfort we ourselves are comforted by Him (2Cor 1:3-4).

    Thanks for having the love of Christ in your life reaching out to others.

    1. I am so thankful for God’s unfailing love! Your scripture is an excellent reference. It is helpful to remember how He loves us in spite of our many failings so that we may in turn love those who fail us from time to time. Great comment! God be with you.

    1. Thank you, Wayeda! Love the name of your blog. One of the things that have jumped out in my study of Genesis is how God both sees and cares. It’s one more attribute of His great love.
