THERE IS NO LOVE GREATER THAN THE LOVE OF GOD
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
~ Jeremiah 29:11-13
Did you know, your Heavenly Father knew you before you were even born? Did you know He put in you a desire to know Him? Did you know He wants you to succeed in life? Did you know it is His desire to give you peace in all circumstances? Did you know there is no love greater than the Love of God?
When we know that the LORD really loves us, He is not against us, He is for us; And when we know there are a great number of witnesses pulling for us (Hebrews 12:1 “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”) then, and only then, do we understand the wonderful thoughts & plans GOD has anticipated for our lives!
Our Heavenly Father asks so little of us, only that we believe, trust Him, have faith in Him, who He is and how much He loves us. He is on our side! We have an enemy for certain, but remember, Jesus overcame that enemy for us! He defeated him at the cross. We are the ones who can let that enemy back in! Speak to that enemy! “It is written…”
