"The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee." Jeremiah 31:3
As I was praying about what the Lord wanted to say to us this morning, He spoke the words above to me--- "I have loved you with an everlasting love". This morning He wants to remind someone that He loves you. You are feeling unloved because of guilt from the mistakes you have made. You are wondering if He still loves you; or how could He still love you after what you have done. You disobeyed, you made a mess of things, you turned away. I am here to reassure you this morning that He has not stopped loving you. His love is everlasting- that means it has no end to it. He will love you as much today as He did yesterday, and He'll love you as much tomorrow as He does today. His loves bears, believes, hopes and endures all things. His love doesn't give up on you. It is unconditional. It isn't "fair weather love"- present as long as you are doing everything right and as long as you are giving love back to Him in returned. Remember, He loved you first, before you ever loved Him. He loved you while you were still dead in trespasses and sin. He gave Himself as a ransom for your sins while you were still His enemy.
This morning do not let guilt, condemnation, your mistakes and failures convince you that God does not love you. He does love you, and this morning through this word (if you will believe it) He is drawing you to Himself by His loving-kindness. Go to Him, don't run from Him. Repent. Tell Him you are sorrow. Tell Him how much you really do love Him. Pour out your heart to Him. He will not turn you away, but He will forgive you, cleanse you, restore you and embrace you. He is a loving Father who wants to lavish His love on you.
Have a great day. HE REALLY LOVES YOU!
