God Loves Me

You should remind yourself at least once every day of the Father’s love for you. God loves you. His love is not phileo love -- love that implies some friendship or kinship. His love is not eros love -- love that implies some attraction. No, His love is agape love. He loves the unlovely. He loves those who hate Him. His love is the highest love... and He loves you with that love.

Let the following scriptures touch your life today... and every day.

Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom! [Luke 12:32 AMP]

For you shall eat [the fruit] of the labor of your hands; happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) shall you be, and it shall be well with you. [Psalm 128:2 AMP]

Show me a sign of [Your evident] goodwill and favor, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because You, Lord, [will show Your approval of me when You] help and comfort me. [Psalm 86:17 AMP]

24The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; 25The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; 26The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). [Numbers 6:24-26 AMP]

I shall not die but live, and shall declare the works and recount the illustrious acts of the Lord. [Psalm 118:17 AMP]
