But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ… (Ephesians 2:4-5).
God’s love for you is beyond what your natural mind can fathom. He loves you more than you can possibly imagine. He proved His love for you by sending Jesus to die for you on the cross. Thus you ought to live a joyous and fulfilled life all the time, knowing that your heavenly Father loves you with an everlasting love; you’re the cynosure of His eyes—the object of his unconditional and irrevocable love.
There’s nothing that can separate you from the love of the Father; even when you do something wrong He doesn’t withdraw His love from you. The Bible says He loved us even while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8), much more now that you’re born again and have become the apple of His eyes.
When you understand and appreciate the Father’s love for you, you’ll realize that it’s impossible for you to pray and not be heard for the Father delights to hear your voice always and grant you your heart’s desires. He wants your joy to be full! That’s why He’ll never cease to bless you and satisfy you with good things.
I want you to acknowledge today that the Lord loves you more than you can possibly imagine; He loves you as though you’re the only one on earth! He loves you more than you love yourself; He’s more desirous and passionate about your success and prosperity than you could ever be. He wants you to know that nothing—absolutely nothing can separate you from the great love with which He has loved you (1 John 3:1).
This is the reason you ought to love the Lord and serve Him with wholehearted devotion, because He first loved you (1 John 4:19). You’re His number one priority. That’s why He’ll never leave you nor forsake you. He’s with you to ensure you’re successful and victorious in every area of your life. His love for you is immeasurable; far beyond what you can imagine.
Dear heavenly Father, I’m so glad to be the object of your deep love and affection! I thank you for loving me with such great and everlasting love! Your love for me is indeed higher than the highest mountains, and deeper than the ocean, I rest and rejoice in this love today, in Jesus’ Name.
