The hardest thing for me to believe about God is that He really loves me. It’s easy to believe He’s powerful, sovereign and wise. But I struggle to feel His love. Can you relate?

Lately, I’ve asked God to help me see myself the way He sees me. How’s this for awesome truth: ‘God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure.’ (Ephesians 1:5)

It gives Him tremendous joy to draw me – to draw YOU – to Himself! Let it satisfy your soul today: you are wildly loved.

Read Job 38:1 here – http://bit.ly/2jnyY9b

The Lord speaks to Job and ‘answers him out of the storm’. God responds to Job’s questions with a long list of questions in chapters 38-40. This outlines how incredibly awesome God is and it is humbling to read. God’s knowledge, understanding and powerful control over all creation is indescribable!

Likewise, Jesus demonstrates His power over creation when He calms the storm by His spoken command.It’s reassuring knowing that our creator God still speaks and calms us in our storms.

Check out bits of Job 38-40 for a mind-blowing read that will deepen your view of Almighty God!

I am loving the song ‘Though the seasons change – your love remains!’ by United Pursuit
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7k5pqBVinA

It is just such a good reminder of the one thing that never changes, God’s love.
The word constant comes to mind – not changing or varying; uniform; regular; continuing without pause; continual and persistent.

God is constant in His relationship with you and how He loves you. He is persistent in you knowing how much you are loved. In a world of change, what a relief to have someone so constant and persistent.

You are loved!

Last week I was drinking coffee on a rainy day in a waffle house in America. I was thinking how everything familiar felt so far away, when the radio started playing the song Africa, by Toto. I knew from WhatsApp’ing my friends that it was also raining back home in South Africa.

I was reminded that ‘the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him.’ (Psalm 24:1 – http://bit.ly/2vAsEfX)

He blesses the rains down in Africa, and the rains on every other continent too. I’m praying that knowing God holds the whole planet – all the beauty, all the brokenness – will help you make sense of things today.
