Rom. 8:38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels can't, and the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away.

How convinced are you that this verse is really true? Be honest. How many times have you wondered if God really loved you and was for you? Maybe you still wonder. Satan is very good at casting doubt on our being loved by God. We think we have done or said things that would cause God to love us no more. We think that God doesn't love us because we aren't loving Him. We come up with all kinds of reasons to believe that we are not loved by God, but we are.

God loves us regardless of any conditions or circumstances we may come up with. We don't even have to be His child in order for God to love us. God is love. But, just because we are loved by God doesn't mean that we can do what we want and be found acceptable to God. God can only accept us as His children on the basis of Christ's righteousness within us. We will not make it to heaven just because God loves us; we need Jesus.

Dear child of God, don't listen to Satan's lies. You cannot stop God from loving you. You may mess up royally and need to be taken to the wood shed, but if you do, be assured that God loves you and is doing it for your good. Life may be very difficult and seemingly hopeless, but be assured, God loves you and is nearby to help you through whatever you are facing. You may have been abused by others or judged wrongly, but God loves you. God loves you, always has and always will.
