The Abounding Love of God



 

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

—Romans 8:37 (NKJV)

 

 

What are you going through? Discouragement? Perhaps, your life is not like you thought it would be at this time in your life. Circumstances may overwhelm you. You can be a Christian and not know the depth of God’s love for you. And when you don’t spiritually receive an understanding of God’s love for you, you don’t experience His love. You feel alone. You may believe you’re unworthy to receive love from him.

 

I know some who are blessed by God and experience guilt because of their sense of unworthiness. They believe they are unworthy to receive good things in their lives. Do you know that your receiving from God is not about you or anything you’ve done? It is all about Him and His eternal and unfailing love for you. God loved you first—before you ever loved Him.

 

Paul prays “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:17-19, NKJV).

 

The love of God for you surpasses human knowledge. You can’t understand it with the mind’s perception, which is subject to your emotions. You know the love God spiritually with His understanding and not yours. When you allow the Holy Spirit to transform your human perception to God’s perception, you have the mind of Christ to grasp the width and length and depth and height of God’s love for you. God wants the Truth of His love for you to ground you—to hold you firmly in His grace—to heal you—to deliver and provide for you. 

 

If you can’t receive His blessings because you feel unworthy, you might be trying to sabotage His love. God’s love came to you without any cost. In whatever you go through or challenging circumstances you may even create for yourself, God loves you. He doesn’t see any unworthiness or situation or thing you may have done or any thought you have had as something that separates you from His love. He sees you—His righteous child—that Jesus gave His life to save. God never leaves you or forsakes you.

 

You are more than a conqueror through Him who lives within you and loves you with the most extraordinary compassion. Let the Holy Spirit teach you His love in His Word. Don’t make excuses and fight against His love. Why would you do that? Your Savior—you Healer—your Provider—your Deliver, lives in you in all His of His fullness. His power is yours. Everything He has purchased for you is yours.  

 

God doesn’t base His love on anything you have done. Don’t judge His love for you based on yours. Your love is conditional, and you can’t understand His love with your human understanding. His love isn’t conditional—whether you are right or not. He loves you just because you “are.”  Jesus loved and died for the whole world, whether they believe in Him or not. You had the faith to ask Him into your heart. And His love, which gave you His new life, is in you. Don’t you want to know its height and depth? Take the same mustard-seed of faith you used to believe in Him and ask God for a revelation of His overwhelming love for you.

 

God’s love abounds—thrives—flourishes, and reaches for you. “I gave you my Son,” He says. “Would I hold anything back?”  And the Son says, “I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10b, NKJV). 

 

Do you want to experience the abundance of the love of God that is greater than anything you have ever known? Don’t misunderstand what He has given you! Open your mind to the revelation of the Holy Spirit and settle in your heart once and for all how much God loves you. When you get God’s love for you resolved in your heart, you believe that you are more than a conqueror. Nothing that comes against you has any power. You belong to Him, and that is everything.
