God Loves You Simply Because He Has Chosen to Do So

God Loves You Simply Because He Has Chosen to Do So

God loves you.




Don’t Worry 

We worry. We worry about the IRS and the SAT and the PTA. We worry that we won’t have enough money. And when we have money, we worry that we won’t manage it well. We worry that the world will end before the parking meter expires. We worry what the dog thinks if he sees us step out of the shower. We worry that someday we’ll learn that fat-free yogurt was fattening.

Honestly, now. Did God save you so you would fret? Would He teach you to walk just to watch you fall? Would He be nailed to the cross for your sins and then disregard your prayers? Come on. Is Scripture teasing us when it says, He has put His angels in charge of you to watch over you wherever you go (Psalm 91:11)?

No, I don’t think so either.

Though mind-numbingly mighty, He comes in the soft of night and touches us with the tenderness of an April snow. He is the shepherd who loves you.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. — Philippians 4:6 NLT

Give your worries to the Lord, and He will take care of you.Psalm 55:22

I leave you peace; My peace I give you. I do not give it to you as the world does. So don’t let your hearts be troubled or afraid.John 14:27

With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.Ephesians 3:20


Love Is All You’ll Find

Water must be wet. A fire must be hot. You can’t take the wet out of water and still have water. You can’t take the heat out of fire and still have fire.

In the same way, you can’t take the love out of God and still have Him exist. For He was... and is... love.

Probe deep within Him. Explore every corner. Search every angle. Love is all you find. Go to the beginning of every decision He has made, and you’ll find it. Go to the end of every story He has told, and you’ll see it. 


No bitterness. No evil. No cruelty. Just love. Flawless love.

Passionate love. Vast and pure love. He is love.

God will love you. Always. No matter what.

We know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love. 1 John 4:16

I loved you as the Father loved Me. Now remain in My love. — John 15:9

We love because God first loved us. — 1 John 4:19
