We Believe He Loves Us

“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.
