Finding Your Place in the Heart of God

Love of God

Finding your place in the heart of God is knowing with certainty that he loves you. 

God loves you. For his love, he sent his Son to die for your sins to receive pardon and restore fellowship with him. The love of God for you is completely supernatural and otherworldly. He demonstrated His marvelous love toward you by sending His beloved Son to die for you while still being a sinner (Romans 5:8). If we ask why He did it, we must look for the answer in the sovereign will of God Himself. There was no good in man to call forth such love.

You are no longer reckoned as a guilty sinner. At the enormous cost of the Savior’s blood, shed for you at Calvary, you have been counted righteous by God and loved by him.

God has bestowed the greatest love and privilege on you to be called his own. To be called a child of God is the greatest privilege (1 John 3:1). Consider the wonderful love of God that brought you into the family of God. Nothing else could have saved you and made you a child of God. But the manner of God’s love is shown in that he brought you into His family as his child.

By the love of God, he helps you to overcome every life challenge. You are not only a conqueror, but more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). It is not simply that you triumph over challenges, but that in doing so, you bring glory to God, a blessing to others, and good to yourselves. But all of this is not through strength, but only through Him who loved you. Only the power and love of God can bring sweetness out of bitterness, strength out of weakness, triumph out of tragedy, and blessing out of heartbreak.

You are to love others as God loves you, and he loved you enough to send his only son to die for you. You may or may not have to die for someone, but you can also practice sacrificial love in other ways: listening, helping, encouraging, and giving. Think of someone who needs this kind of love today and give all the love you can (1 John 4:7).

God's love for you is steadfast, and it endures forever. You never have to worry that God will run out of love because it flows from a deep well that will never run dry (Psalm 136:26).
