"I have loved you with an everlasting love..." (Jeremiah 31:3)
Notice the strange combination of wording in this verse? It's not "I will love you" or "I'm going to love you"...rather I have loved you- meaning not only has God loved us a long time; He has actually loved us before time was even invented!
Maybe you thought that when the doctor held you up as a brand new baby, God looked down and said "How cute! I think I'll love that little bundle of joy forever!" Or perhaps you were under the impression that Jesus didn't smile on you until you trusted Christ as your only hope of salvation? Well perhaps His smile got a little bigger that day, but His love was coming your way before you even came your way.
So how does that make you feel?
I don't know about you, but that blows me away. God's love for me is the most constant and unchanging thing in the universe. In fact, it will still be going long after the universe is gone!
You know what else? Stop worrying about the security of your salvation. You are God's precious jewel...is He so irresponsible that you would be dropped and lost? You are the apple of God's eye...is He so fickle that you would be subject to "He loves me...He loves me not" game?
Don't think so!
If there was ever any possibility of God losing His affection towards you, it would have happened a long time ago, because He's loved you for a long time. But don't worry, because the opposite is true- He grows crazier about you each day, and the engine of His emotion does not have a reverse option!
If we could only let just a little bit of that truth sink in, it would change our lives completely -
And so on and so on. This week, try focusing on this truth, and see if it doesn't help you have a "lovely" day!
Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:39)
