I Really Love You

I Really Love You

My Child, you may not know me, but I know everything about you (Psalm 139:1).  I know when you sit down and when you rise up (Psalm 139:2).  I am familiar with all your ways (Psalm 139:3).  Even the hairs of your head are numbered (Matthew 10:29-31).  For you are made in My Image (Genesis 1:27).  In me you live and move and have your being, for you are My offspring (Acts 17:28).  I knew you before you were conceived (Jeremiah 1:4-5).  I chose you when I planned creation (Ephesians 1:11-12).  I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live (Acts 17:26).  You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).  I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13).  I brought you forth on the day you were born (Psalm 71:6).  I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know Me (John 8:41-44).  I am not distant and angry, I am the complete expression of love (1 John 4:16), and it is My desire to lavish My love on you (1 John 3:1) simply because you are My child and I am your Father (1 John 3:1).  I offer you more than your earthly father ever could (Matthew 7:11), for I am the perfect Father (Matthew 5:48).  Every good gift that you receive comes from My hand (James 1:17), for I am your provider and I meet all your needs (Matthew 6:31-33).  My plan for your future has always been filled with hope (Jeremiah 29:11) because I love you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3).  My thoughts towards you are countless as the sand on the seashore (Psalm 139:17-18), and I rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).  I will never stop doing good to you (Jeremiah 32:40), for you are my treasured possession (Exodus 19:5).  I desire to establish you with all My heart and all My soul (Jeremiah 32:41), and I want to show you great and marvellous things (Jeremiah 33:3).  If you seek Me with all your heart, you will find me (Deuteronomy 4:29).  Delight in Me, and I will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4), for it is I who gave you those desires (Philippians 2:13), I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine (Ephesians 3:20), for I am your greatest encourager (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17).  I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).  When you are broken-hearted, I am close to you (Psalm 34:18).  As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart (Isaiah 40:11).  One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes, and I’ll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth (Revelation 21:3-4).  I am your Father, and I love you even as I love My son, Jesus (John 17:23), for in Jesus My love for you is revealed (John 17:26).  He is the exact representation of my being (Hebrews 1:3).  He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you (Romans 8:31), and to tell you that I am not counting your sins (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).  Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).  His death was the ultimate expression of My love for you (1 John 4:10).  I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love (Romans 8:31-32).  If you receive the gift of My Son Jesus, you receive Me (1 John 2:23), and nothing will ever separate you from My love again (Romans 8:38-39).  Come home, and I’ll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen (Luke 15:7).  I have always been Father and will always be Father (Ephesians 3:14-15).  My question is, Will you be my child? (John 1:12-13).  I am waiting for you (Luke 15:11-32).  Love your Heavenly Father.

God is God, and that can never be changed, we may change our thoughts and commitment, but you cannot change the fact, that, “Remember the former things of old: for I [am] God, and [there is] none else; [I am] God, and [there is] none like me,” Isaiah 46:9.  God has always been there, and God will always be there, and there is no way that you can ever stop, barricade or remove that Love.  Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Or Romans 5:6-8 {MSG} “Christ arrives right on time to make this happen.  He didn’t, and doesn’t wait for us to be ready.  He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready.  And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway.  We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to self-sacrifice.  But God put his love on the line for us by offering his “Only Son” in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatsoever to him.

Basically, while we were continually “Warring against God,” ignoring him, fighting against him, slandering him, and doing everything else in opposition to God, or what he stands for, God’s Boundless Love was continuously flooding our way, the Holy Spirit is actively pleading with us and for us, Jesus Christ was actively “Writing the Cheque” to cover the enormous Debt that we had run up with God.  So you see God continuously “Loves You” unconditionally, he is deeply desiring you to come into his arms of pure Love, and then he wants to grow you in this, 2 Peter 3:18 {MSG} “Grow in Grace and understanding of our Master and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  Glory to the Master, now and forever! Yes!”  God loves you so much, so what is stopping you from loving him back, big time?
