If you grew up in or around the church, you’ve probably heard the saying, “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.” Do you believe that Jesus loves YOU?
Circumstances Can Fool You
That may be easy to believe when life is going well, but the death of a child, sickness, job loss, a destroyed home, etc. can make it more difficult to believe that Jesus loves you UNLESS you know the truth.
The truth is that Jesus came to give us an abundant life, but our enemy (Satan and his army) came to steal, kill, and destroy you (John 10:10). If bad circumstances are rocking your world, don’t believe the lie that it’s God punishing you or withdrawing His love.
Jesus Gave Everything for You
Jesus gave His life for you, so He certainly isn’t going to strike you with disease or accidents to take your life away from you prematurely. Jesus gave His life for you, so He isn’t going to take away your ability to provide for yourself and be a blessing to others. Jesus gave His life for you, so He’s not going to destroy your home with a disaster. He proved His love for you by dying for you. What more can He do to convince you of His love?
Jesus Loves You, but Satan Hates You
Anytime something bad happens, God gets blamed, but He rarely gets the glory when something good happens. Stop blaming God for the devil’s dirty work! Instead involve God in your life and let Him direct your steps so you can avoid evil and disaster. If something “bad” happens in your life, expect God to work something good out of it even if it’s your fault (Romans 8:28). Jesus didn’t die for you so you could struggle through this life. He died so you could have an abundant life – NOW and later, so don’t settle for anything less!
Romans 8 – 32 Since He did not spare even His own Son but gave Him up for us all, won’t He also give us everything else? (NLT)
Let’s Pray: It should have been me being beaten and it should have been me hanging on that cross, but You loved me so much You didn’t want that happen. Correct the lies that make me think that Your perfect sacrifice wasn’t enough and that somehow MY suffering is payment for MY sins or the sins of the world. Thank You Jesus! Amen.
