“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:6-7, NLT
If you are struggling or stressed with life's obstacles, look to scripture to feel God's love and gain His perspective on the situation. The Bible is full of scriptures that show God's unfathomable love for us, and discovering that His love is everlasting is the most important of them all.
The Bible tells us that His love is far greater than any human love imaginable. Nothing we do (or anyone else does to us) will ever separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:37-39)
He loves us so much that He gave His only son, and promises, that whoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. (John 3:16)
When we were dead in our own sin, through His mercy and grace He has made us alive together with Christ. By grace we are saved. (Ephesians 2:8) While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Not only does God love us, He also cares for us and wants to reveal Himself in the midst of all our troubles. He invites us to cast all our cares on Him. (1 Peter 5:6-7)
He is a God of mercy and grace, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. (Psalm 86:15)
No person can love or even understand the depth and breadth of God’s love, but we can accept it.
No matter what our circumstance may be or how great our sin, God's love is always unconditional and His Power is always available to help make us more like Jesus.
Father I don’t fully understand Your love, but I freely accept it as a gift of Your grace and mercy. Thank You for loving me no matter how badly I stumble. I cast my cares on You and accept all the love You have for me. Amen.
Seek to understand and experience the love of God more deeply. Write some of the verses from today’s devotion on sticky notes. Then post them around the house in obvious places (the fridge or cupboard door, your night table, mirror, etc.) Then let the truth sink deeply into your soul each time you read the verses. God loves you so much!
