God Loves us!

Psalms 8:4-6 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? you made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour. you made him ruler over the words of your hands; you put everything under his feet

I guess most of the times we like to look down upon ourselves and think that we don’t matter or amount to anything. If there is one thing that most people struggle with, is self confidence, self love, self acceptance. God who is Holy and Loving made us into His own image, we are not like animals who when they die, their story ends there, we have a body, a spirit and a soul. When God made man, He was thoughtful, mindful, creative, I mean when you look at your body, don’t you see creativity? that every part of your body joins with the others, and everything works in synchronisation. God gave us the power and authority to be incharge of everything here on earth, man was made the master. As if that was not enough, when He saw that the world was evil and corrupt, He sent His only Son to come and die for us, on the cross. Now, during those days, when someone was put to death through crucifixion, it was a very shameful thing, because, these were people, who were the worst in the society. Yet, as shameful as it was, Jesus took up the cross, carried it and was crucified. When He said, “it is finished,” He meant exactly that! He’s not a man to lie, or go back on His Word. He finished it all at the cross, He paid for our sins, He defeated sickness & diseases, He took away our guilt & shame, that we may come directly to Him.

Sometimes I just sit and begin to look at everything around me, and I see how much God loves us. Looking at nature, and how everything just falls into place every single morning, the sun rises up, the birds chirping along as they fly away, the oceans don’t flood, the rivers keep flowing, the mountains keep standing still, and when evening comes, the sun will go down, and the moon will come to give its light. Its not rocket science! there is a force behind it, there is someone who controls it all and that is God. God loves us so much, yes we may never have all the answers to life’s questions, that is why He tells us in John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” This is our hope, that Christ overcame the world, and so in Him, we shall overcome everything that comes our way.
Oh how He loves us, He is mindful of us, He cares so much about us and our wellbeing, and He wants us all to come to Him, to walk in His ways. Know that even when we have situations happening all around us, HE wants us to keep moving forward, to believe in Him even when all we see in front of us is a huge sea that seems to have no end, or a fire that keeps burning and destroying everything that we are trying to build. When this happens, we will not see it with our physical eyes, but it is during these times, that He literally carries us through, because our strength has failed us! our hope is dwindling away, but today God is reminding us just how much He loves us!

May we be filled with His love, pure love that brings healing to the body and soul.

Jesus Loves you, Jesus loves me, Jesus loves all of us!!
