The circumstances in our life can sometimes make us wonder, “Does God really love us?” We rejoice in times of joy but we doubt his love in times of troubles and failures. The whole he loves me he loves me not has pondered through my mind recently, but I am always reminded of Gods greater love for me. It is very hard to rejoice in times of hurt and failures, but we have to remember the greater picture in our lives. God’s love can overcome any obstacle we face in life. He always wants the best for us so we need to trust his timing and put our hope in him alone. Romans 5:3-5 says, “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us into shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” God always knows what we need, and he will give us the opportunities to process our faith and character in him. Never give up when things are down because God is always preparing something better for you because he loves you.
Life will always throw stopping blocks into our paths, but it is how we overcome them that determines our future. Sometimes the things we wish or plan for don’t happen. You may not understand, but trust that God knows what is better for you. Proverbs 19:21 says, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the lords purpose that prevails.” As much as we work hard and use our strength, at the end of the day all the glory comes from God and is used for his purpose. Everything good that happens comes from the Lord so allow him to establish each step in your life. Never doubt God’s love for you because his love for us endures forever. Psalm 100:5 says, “For the Lord is Good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness contiues through all generations.” Do not forget that God’s love is always fighting for us, it is enduring in faithfulness and mercy. There is no mistake or failure that can hinder God’s love for you.
Satan may try to take everything that we have, but he can never take away God’s love for us. Do not let your failures doubt God’s love for you, because he is always wanting us to practice our faith and trust in him. When you give your life into the hands of God and love him with all your heart, he will never let you go and his favor will be upon you. You need hope to endure this lifelong journey, so allow your hope to be based on God’s love for you. So remember, God does love you.
