He cares for you!

Standard

This morning, I can’t help but think about how much I love the Lord. I can’t help but think of all the wonderful ways He has personally ministered to me. He has give me hope when I felt hopeless, love when I felt alone, joy in the midst of sorrow, peace when chaos was all to be found. I am especially thankful for His Word, because satan is the father of lies, and he is exposed every time I choose to open the Bible. But more than all these ways He has loved me, I am so thankful for the time the Lord has spent with me. Every time I set aside time for Him, He is faithful to show up. He comes and speaks through His Word, renews my mind, fills me of Himself, and encourages me in who He says I am. There is nothing as precious as the personal love I have received from the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Creator of all the Universe. To be seen, acknowledged, desired, valued, and loved by Him is what I live for. His love endures forever, and He cares for me! Wow! Amazing!

Guess what? He loves you as much as he loves me. If you are in Christ, we have the same Holy Spirit living in our hearts. His Word is alive for you too! You are the apple of His eye, and His desire is for you. His love for you is deeper, longer, wider than you could ever come to fully understand. Have you been desiring more of Him personally in your life? Can I just encourage you to tell Him the desire of your heart? Set aside time to spend with Him. Choose to open the Word and get scripture in your heart. He promises to be found if we seek Him.

Proverbs 8:17

    Those who search will surely find me.

Psalm 17:8

New International Version (NIV)

Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings

1 Peter 5:7

Ephesians 3:18-19

New International Version (NIV)

18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
