Why Does God Care About Us So Much? (Part Two)

Why Does God Care About Us So Much?

1 John 4:16(NKJV) - And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

Do you believe the love God has for you? Do you really? If you would only believe His love, it would change your life.

Romans 8:35-39(NKJV) - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

How He loves us.. Oh how He loves us... Oh how He loves us... Oh how He loves...

This is a continuation from yesterday's blog; "Why Does God Care About Us So Much?" After writing that blog and turning off my computer, God said to me clearly that the top reason why He cares about us so much is quite simple: It's in His nature. God cares because that's who He is. He doesn't choose to love, He is love. He can't help Himself. His love defines Him.

Why is it important to understand how God's love really works? Glad you asked. It's important because it shows that God's love has absolutely nothing to do with us and all to do with Him. He offers His love freely regardless of what we've done or not done and all we have to do is receive it. It's the overarching factor above everything else and helps to explain why He is considerate of us even we're not considerate of Him.

Psalms 139:13-16(NLT) - You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

Why does God care about us so much? The last reason we'll address today is that He is a loving Father and we are His Children. Can you picture a doting Father looking at an ultrasound of his baby developing in the womb of his wife? In much the same way, God watched us as we were formed. Regardless of the circumstances of our birth, He paid attention to the entire process. He was interested in us before we were born. Thanks be to God for His love.

When you receive a revelation of God's Love you will change the way you look at yourself. You will stop settling for less than His love would desire for you. You will begin to value yourself because of the value God places in you. You will stop self-destructive activities. Your confidence will skyrocket because you know you are loved by Love Himself. Even if your situation is troubling, remember God's Love is always available to you. It's His Love that kept you through life's challenges and it's His Love that will take you to the finish line. Nothing can stop His love from getting to you, whether you are on top of the highest mountain or at the bottom of the lowest pit. In the words of Apostle Paul in Romans 8:38 - "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
