“16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (KJV).
When you read the above verse what do you think or what do you feel? For me when I read this verse, I get a good feeling knowing that God loves us a lot to give his only son. That is a lot of love. This means his love for us is unchangeable and we must be grateful for this. When you think of love people tend to think of happiness, a strong affection for another coming from personal ties, and assurance of affection. Love is important in everyone's life…it is essential from the beginning to the end. God’s love for us does not mean he will always give us what we are longing for, nothing will come easy for us. But God’s love for us is when he gives us what he believes we need and is beneficial for us.
We sometimes misconstrue God’s love for us because he does not give us what we
are asking for. This may often confuse some and can be interpreted as if he
does not love us, which could not be further from the truth. When times are
hard it seems, he is not there for us when we feel we need him the most. We
must always remember God's love is unlike no other and of our love. God’s love
goes deeper. His love teaches us and molds us from the inside out making us go
through things to help restore and rebuild what has been broken. He is making
us stronger and developing us into what we are meant to be. You must see
yourself as God’s beloved child who he is constructing to a better person.
Continue to worship and pray. Do not take God's way of loving us wrong. But know he has never forgotten you, his love for you runs deeper than you may know and can only imagine. He will provide you with all that you need if you believe in love, he has for you. God’s love is real. Be blessed!
