Oh, How He Loves!

Love. We need it, and God has it. God is love. Why do we need Love? It heals us. Life is traumatic — and nobody survives. God’s true love heals, satisfies and brings peace to our hearts. No human love can do what the love of our Heavenly Father does. Our Daddy loves us more than any human is able. He knows your thoughts and remembers every moment of your life.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14

"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Luke 12:6-8

God knows the number of hairs on our heads and the freckles on our noses! What does this mean? Just this: God knows us better than we know ourselves. But wait! Isn’t that the core of our heart’s desire? To be truly known and loved. That’s why women pursue relationships with men so intensely — God created us to crave this love that only He provides. To know and understand this should put your heart at ease. To rest our hearts in our Daddy’s careful and ever-loving hands and then let human love enrich our lives after we find fulfillment in God. This will protect your heart, give you confidence in God’s everlasting love, and free you from the frenzied search to be known and loved — because you’ve found it. It’s in relationship with God, our Love. Go outside and let the sunshine warm you from head to toe. That’s a hug from your Daddy.

  1. I am memorizing Psalm 139 this year, and have been thinking quite a bit about how much God knows me and loves me. It is amazing!
    Thanks for causing me to think on it some more, Andrea.
