I LOVE God's heart because....
HE loved me before I could ever even think about loving Him.
“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
HIS love is without conditions. I don’t have to do anything to earn it.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
HE is compassionate. It was HIS compassion for people that moved HIM.
“When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things” Mark 6:34
HE loves to give me good gifts.
“So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32
HE cares, HE sees and knows me intimately. Personally. I am not just a number to HIM.
”But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows”. Matthew 10:29-31
HE does see all and promises that justice will be done on my behalf. Nothing that happens to me gets past HIM.
“Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.” Romans 12:19
HE is so patient with me! HE allows me to learn and grow without getting impatient or frustrated!
“But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.” Psalm 86:15
“O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.” Psalm 30:2
HE runs towards me when I’ve messed up.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him”. Luke 15:20
If I had all the time in the world, I couldn’t list all the reasons why I love God’s heart!
“Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out. Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do? Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice? Everything comes from him; Everything happens through him; Everything ends up in him. Always glory! Always praise! ” Romans 11:33-36
