God Loves You!
God loves us just the way we are but He refuses to leave us that way! Wow! What a profound thought! Friend, He will not leave you the way He found you because He wants you to be like Him. That is why the Bible tells us in Philippians 2:5 to have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. God’s great desire for each of us is captured in His love for us just the way we are. If we think His love for us would be stronger if our faith increases, we are wrong. If you think His love would be deeper for you if your thoughts and actions were right, we are wrong again. We must not confuse God’s love with the love of people. The love humans have for each other increases with performance and decreases with mistakes. It is not so with God’s love. He loves us right where we are. Study the chances extended to king Ahab (the seventh most wicked king that ever ruled Israel) and Haman to mention a few.
Luke 18:7 says God will always give what is right to His people who cry to Him night and day and He will not be slow to answer because He loves them. Then you might wonder why He waits until you are broke to answer you. Why does He wait until the sickness progresses to death’s door before He answers? We do not know the answers to these and many more questions. But we know this: the BEST is what He will do for us! Just as He told His disciples in John 9:1-5, that the things we go through are allowed so that the POWER of God could be seen in our lives. No matter how hopeless a situation is before He stepped in, all was done for His glory, no man or spirit will lay claim to it. You might be going through some stuff and wondering when He will show up, if ever. Don’t be troubled, He is working out the best for you and only He will take the glory. Friend, He is very much aware of what you are going through. His desire is that you will depend totally on Him and He will release the grace for you to go through it. So that at the end of the tunnel, you would declare “if God had not being on my side, I would have been consumed”.
Friend, always remember that though we hear nothing, He is speaking. Though we see nothing, He is working. With God there are no accidents. Every incident we encounter is intended by Heaven to bring us closer to Him. He is GOD and He loves us… Do we BELIEVE?
