“To know God is not only to realize He is love—it’s to experience His love.”
The Bible is filled with verses stating that God is love, but in this famine-filled, depression-driven, illness-guided world, how can we fully experience God and His love for us?
Last year I was experiencing a difficult situation. I was confused and felt trapped. Recently, I looked back through my prayer journal. I see how God has answered my prayers and brought me through that time.
If God were not a loving God, would He be faithful to us?
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” Isaiah 31:3
Think of a difficulty you have gone through.
How was Christ’s love evident?
Many times, I’ve been bombarded with thoughts straights from the devil. Doubts, lies, fears. But every time I call, God rescues me!
If God were not a loving God, would He rescue us?
“Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me.” Psalm 138:7
I was in my sin—dying and alone. I was continuously heading down the wide path leading to death. But He picked me up. He saved me. He died so I could live!
If God were not a loving God, would He die for us?
“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to become sin itself, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
We experience His love every day. Whether we choose to acknowledge His love or not is the question.
Take a moment to pray and ask God to open your eyes so that you can experience His love.
