Romans 5:5 — For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love (NLT).
Open up your heart today and receive God’s love for you. I think we sometimes have a tendency to label His love as unconditional for others and conditional for us. We’ll say things like, “God’s love is enough for that person, but the mistakes I’ve made and the problems I have are just too great or unique.” This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many people have only known rejection in this life. They are outcasts, misfits, problematic, and so on. Perhaps you feel this way. If so, listen to me carefully: Others have and may continue to reject and withhold their love from you, but don’t believe the lie that God has rejected you too. He loves you with an everlasting love.
All you have to do is set everything that hinders you aside and receive His love for you by faith. Doing so will free you from the burden of unworthiness and give you a glimpse at just how valuable you are in the sight of God. After all, you are His child.
