"I have loved you," says the LORD. Malachi 1:2 NASB
God love me -- not merely bears with me, thinks of me, feeds me, but loves me. Who is it that loves you? God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the Almighty, All in all, does He love me? Even He? If all men and all angels and all the living creatures who are before the trhone loved me, it would be nothing to this -- the Infinite loves me! And who is it that He loves? Me. He loves me, an insignificant nobody, full of sin -- who deserved to be in hell, who loves Him so little in return -- God loves me. And how did He love me? He loved me so that He gave up His only begotten Son for me, to be nailed to the tree, and made to bleed and die. And because He loved me and forgave me, I am on the way to heaven, and I shall see His face and sing His praises. He loved me before I was born; before a star began to shine, He loved me, and He has never ceased to do so all these years. When I have sinned, He has loved me; when I have forgotten Him, He has loved me; and He will love me when my knees tremble and my hair is gray. He will bear and carry His servant; and He will love me forever and ever.
This is today's (May 13) devotional. How amazing that someone, anyone could love us that much, especially since He knows EVERYTHING about us. What an amazing love. Thank you Lord for loving me so much.
