I use to wonder what about God makes Him perfect. God is love. His love for us is perfect. There is nothing you can do right now to make God love you any more, and there’s nothing you can do to make Him love you any less. His love toward you is steadfast and consistent; it’s unchanging. His arms are always stretched out toward you. He’s always ready for you to come to Him. Hallelujah!
At times people aren’t sure how God feels about them. They think He might be mad at them, but Scripture tells us just the opposite. Like I always say “God’s not mad at you; He’s madly in love with you!” It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, where you’ve come from, what colour your skin is, God’s arms are open to you. He’s longing to show you His goodness and grace.
Today, meditate on the truth that it is His love that leads us to repent and change our ways. Open your heart and receive His love. Let it give you confidence and make you new. Trust His perfect love and let Him transform every area of your life!
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear…” (1 John 4:18, NIV)
Yahweh, I humbly come before You, giving You all that I am. I thank You for Your perfect unconditional love. I invite You to bury it in my heart and mind, so that it will cast out all my fear. Fill me with Your peace and joy today and always so I can pass it on to others, in Christ’ name! Amen.
