    UNDERSTANDING THE FATHER’S LOVE


    UNDERSTANDING THE FATHER’S LOVE
       For God so loved the world, that 
    he gave his only begotten Son, that 
    whosoever believeth in him should not 
    perish, but have everlasting life
     (John 3:16). 
    t h u r s d a y 28
    1 John  3:1  says,  “Behold,  what  manner  of 
    love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that 
    we should be called the sons of God: therefore the 
    world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.” The 
    word, “bestowed” also means “lavished”; the Father 
    has lavished His love on you. It’s love without limits. 
    Think about it: we who shouldn’t have been known 
    of God, who shouldn’t have ever come close to God 
    are now, as a result of the superabundant love He’s 
    lavished upon us, accepted of Him. We’re now called 
    the sons of God. What an amazing reality! 
    What is love? It’s that endearing value of a person 
    that gives you a sense of his or her importance to you 
    as the object of your favour. Therefore, that God loves 
    you means you’re special and valuable to Him. This 
    understanding will change your life and give you an 
    extraordinary mentality. 
    Consider  a  man  like  David,  who  had  a  unique 
    perception of the love of God; his understanding of 
    the Father’s love made him think differently. In Psalm 
    23:1 for example, he said, “The LORD is my shepherd; 
    I shall not want.” This alone lets you know what David 
    thought about God, for which reason he was such a 
    success, and his life, so victorious! He knew he was 
    valuable to God, and the object of His favour.
    Always take out time to meditate on the love of 
    God. Think about His grace, kindness and the fact that 
    if you were the only one on earth, the Lord Jesus would 
    still have given His life for you. That’s how valuable you 
    are to God. Dare to believe this and let it sink deep 
    into your consciousness; it’ll change your life forever 
    and give you a new confidence. 
       God loves you just the way you are. You didn’t 
    have to “work” or impress Him to earn His love, for you 
    could never earn it by your own works, but by grace. 
    He chose to love you. All you have to do is accept His 
    love as simply as it has come to you, and be conscious 
    of His love for you always. Even now, lift your hands 
    to Him and say, “Thank you Lord, for loving me with 
    an everlasting love. Amen.”
    PRAYER
    Dear Father, I thank you for your love, and your grace 
    upon my life. Thank you for making me the object of 
    your grace, glory, and righteousness; my life is the 
    expression of your praise, now and forever, in Jesus’ 
    Name. Amen.
