Many Ways

Every year, in my last Church, I would have a valentine’s luncheon for the ladies of the church. The topic in which I would speak, was about God’s love.

Each year I would pray that someone would be helped by my lesson, but I had not heard that any had.

After the last one, later that afternoon my girls and I went to the mall and my youngest saw a friend from school. As we walked away after saying our greetings, she said, “Wow, God really does love me!” And proceeded to explain, while I was teaching the lesson she asked God to show her He loved her by making her see a school friend!

God longs to express His love to you!

Now you might think this is silly, that you would need confirmation that God loves you. After all  everybody knows He loves all  people, that’s why he sent Jesus.

God knows that everybody needs encouragement and He chooses to show people his love personally, to do just that.

He encouraged Jesus at his baptism, on the mount of Transfiguration and just before his crucifixion in the garden, and I’m sure in many more ways that have not been recorded.

God knows that I love to hear Him say, He loves me. One morning on my way to Church, I walked to my car and this card was on the ground! 20151227_133942307_iOSAnother time as I was driving I looked up and saw, God loves you, written in the sky!

If you watch closely you will find that God shows His love to you in many way’s. He knows your personality and the things you like and He will give them to you, just like a smile from heaven.

Father, please help us to always see your love and encouragement. Thank you for being a God who cares and wants to show us your love. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

 


One thought on “Many Ways

  1. Excellent post. I especially like the examples you use of God encouraging Jesus during His earthly stay. I never thought of Jesus in these terms — as needing encouragement — but, after all, He did come to live a “human” life so that He would be able to identify with we frail human beings (Hebrews 2:18). Great devotion to begin the day with.
