As we enter 2022, Patricia reminds us of the most extravagant gift God bestowed upon us.
“…I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.”
Jeremiah 31:3 NASB
As we enter this new year, let us be reminded of the wonderful blessing of God’s everlasting and unconditional love toward us. 1 John 4:8 teaches that God IS Love! Love is a Person and He created you in His image and likeness –filled with love. Everyone needs love because we were created for love and by Love.
When mankind fell into sin, we were separated from God – separated from perfect Love. As a result, we experienced guilt, shame, fear, and condemnation but this was never God’s intention or desire for us. We walked away from perfect Love.
Through Christ we have been restored to God. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Even though we turned our hearts against Him, He never abandoned us. He never stopped loving us. Instead, He put a plan into place that would restore us to Himself – to Love.
God’s plan was brilliant. He knew that we did not have the ability to make our wrongs right. Because of our sins, we owed such an enormous debt that it was impossible for us to pay it back. As a result, He decided to pay the debt for us.
God decided to become man and pay the debt in full. Jesus Christ came as a man and obeyed and fulfilled all the law and commandments on our behalf. He never sinned. He was perfect. He then chose to absorb all of mankind’s sins as He hung on the cross. He died and paid the penalty for all of our sins and transgressions. He actually became sin and in exchange, He gave us His righteousness.
What an extravagant gift. In order to receive this love that will never weaken, fade, or diminish, we simply receive Him into our life as our Savior and Lord by faith. He did all the work to restore us to God… to restore us to Love. All we have to do is believe.
This love is not based on our ability to obey His commandments, our behavior or our performance – it is based on His unconditional love for us.
He will ALWAYS love you! You are His dear child. You are His beloved. You are His precious one and always will be. When you receive and understand this great and glorious love, then it is easy to love Him in return with all your heart, mind, and strength.
“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are…” (1 John 3:1).
In this coming year, let’s make love our goal: to receive His love and then to lavish Him and others with it!
I decree that:
- I am loved with an everlasting love, and with loving-kindness God has drawn me to Himself.
- I bask in this love, and nothing whatsoever will ever separate me from this love God has poured upon me.
- God’s love for me never fails; it is rich and forgiving, so gentle and kind.
- God’s love is over me as a banner that gives me covering and victory, leading me in the way I should go.
- I follow after Him because He draws me with His intimate love.
- I have been called to know this rich love that surpasses knowledge so that I am filled with His fullness.
- I truly am the object of His deepest love and affection!
- Because of His love for me, I will never perish but will have everlasting life with Him.
- The love of God wells up within me like fresh rain from above and overflows me with perfect peace.
- The Lord pours His unfailing love upon me daily and as a result, I am able to love others freely.
