TRUST IN GOD’S LOVE
One of the worst feelings in the world is to feel alone. When we feel as if no one cares or loves us. We can’t make them change. But we are able to change how we feel. We don’t have to feel alone because we can go to God. He loves us and will never, ever leave us. When we decide to trust in God’s love, we will never feel alone again. And God will live in us and allow us to love even those who we feel don’t love us.
1 John 4:16 “We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, thank You for Your love. We want to trust in Your love today knowing that we can live in You and You can live in us making great things happen. We know we can’t help who likes us or even loves us but we do know that You love us and when we trust in Your love, You will live in us to make great things happen. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus name. Amen.
We don’t always know how someone really feels about us but we can always know God loves us.
People change like the wind and can’t always be depended upon but God never changes and always loves.
Putting our trust in God’s love will allow us to love those who don’t love us.
Being alone and being lonely are two different things. However, when we put our trust in God we will never have to experience either one of those.
People will let us down and we shouldn’t put our trust in them because they are not perfect. Only God is.
Living and trusting in God’s love will allow us to face Him in confidence on Judgment Day.
1 John 4:17 “And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.” (NLT)
