I Believe God Loves Me
We love, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19 ASV
I believe God loves me consistently, faithfully, righteously. He loves me to the height, to the breadth and length and depth of His being. His love sought me, wooed me, received me, embraced me, adopted me, brought me into His family, and made me His child and heir.
I believe His love assures me of His acceptance, extends to me His mercies, and covers me with His grace.
The signature of His love is written over my life—it feeds me in my hunger, upholds me in my trials, and heals me in my pain. It bathes me with comfort, soothes me with oil, and clothes me with kindness. It protects me in the battle, holds me in the storm, guides me in the journey, and keeps me to the end.
This is an adaptation of an excerpt from Roy's latest book, A Place at His Table - 365 Daily Devotions, which will be releasing in December 2019. It may be pre-ordered here.
