Eph. 3:18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is.
It takes power, the power of God at work within us, for us to get a grasp on how great God’s love for us is. It is only as we live in Christ faithfully that we begin to understand that we are loved by God. God’s love for us surpasses anything else we have ever known before. It is broader, longer, higher and deeper than we can ever fully grasp.
The wonder of God’s love is that there is more than enough of it for everyone who has ever lived or shall live to be saved. There is no human being who is beyond the desire of God to love them and save them. How can it be? How can God love all humanity equally? How can God love each of us adequately? I don’t know, but He does.
The more we experience the love of God for us, the more we come to realize that we cannot contain or measure His love. There is no time ever in which God does not love us. He loves us during the good and bad times of our walk with Him. He loves us with great understanding. He loves us no matter how we might fail Him. He loves us and is willing to display His love for us in a multitude of ways.
Man’s love is fickle. It is unreliable and can easily be offended. Man’s love is so often dependant on the love of others. We love those who return our love. We treat with kindness those who are kind to us. It is not that way with God. He loves us with no strings attached. He loves us and went out of His way to prove it when He went to the cross and died for our sins.
Let your heart not be troubled today; God loves you. Let not the treatment of others bother you today; God loves you. Let not your heart be afraid of what lies before you; God loves you. Let not your heart despair because of the rejection of others today; God loves you. He loves you beyond measure. He always has and He always will.
