Draw Love From God

June 18, 2019
Constantly draw love from God.
There is no one in the world who loves you the way God loves you. You may think your parents love you, or your husband or wife, but I tell you, you can multiply their love ten-thousand times ten-thousand and it will not equal the love God is feeling for you right at this very moment.
You say, “But can God love me like that – in spite of all my sins?” Friend, God’s love is bigger than any sin you could commit. It’s like throwing a handful of sand into the ocean. The ocean is big enough to absorb the sand – and God’s love is big enough to absorb your sin.
Some of you are parents. Think about how much you love those kids of yours. Think about what you would do for them, what you would go through for them. Now consider this: You are God’s child. God says, “I am your Father and I love you.”
I remember when one of my children was hospitalized. He lay there, tubes inserted in him, machines beeping. I prayed from my heart: Dear God, I would gladly trade places with him. Let me suffer instead of him. Why? Because this is my child!
I remember a father telling me about his daughter who had run up a huge credit card bill and now was being hounded by creditors. I said, “What did you do?” He said, “I paid off her debt. What am I going to do? I’m her father.”
I remember … well, you get the point.
The power of a parent’s love … Now, if a human father can love like that, how much more do you think your Father in heaven is able to love you? “How great is the love the Father has lavished upon us!” says the Bible. “For God so loved the world!” says the Bible. “I have loved you with an everlasting love!” and “I have always loved you!” says the Bible. (1 John 3:1, John 3:16, Jeremiah 31:3, Malachi 1:2)
