Valentines Letters from God
Friends, feeling distant from your Savior? Feeling alone, afraid, discouraged, a little low on hope?
I encourage you to write down the promises God has for you. Christ has special Valentines day messages of love and faithfulness for you. He wants you to write His promises on your heart, to memorize them, and be fond of what He says and thinks about you. His love for you is an agape kind of love that doesn't change based on what we do or how we feel. His love for you is steadfast and His promises are sure.
So much deeper than any love relationship we can have on earth, there is nothing we can do that can stop Jesus from loving us. Romans 8:39 says "Neither height nor depth nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate you from My love in Christ Jesus.
"You can know and depend on the love that I have for you." 1 John 4:16
Jesus is the only person who knows everything about us and chooses to love us unconditionally anyway. He is the Savior who died a gruesome death on a cross so that we could live with him in heaven.
Isaiah 59:2 says "Your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you so that he will not hear." Yet 1 John 1:9 says "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us from our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Today Jesus asks us if we will let Him be the lover of our life. If we will surrender our lives to Him to choose to make Him our Savior. Though sin threatens to separate us, Jesus has power to forgive our sins to restore a closer connection to God.
As Psalm 139:23-24 says "Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."
"Call on me whenever you are in trouble, and I will rescue you."Psalm 91:15
Friends, our God promises that He will meet all of our needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:19
Whatever you are feeling, whatever darkness you may be facing, I promise you that Our God is stronger. Call out to Him today, and He will deliver you from any strongholds or sins you might be facing. Seek His face, ask Him to reveal Himself to you and believe that He will. Rest in the love and forgiveness God has for you, His creation.
