“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16 NIV

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV

All Christians are very familiar with John 3:16. Whether you are new in the walk or a veteran. This is the first verse that we get taught because it’s a crucial verse that explains just how much God loves us. As crucial as it is, it gets overlooked way to often! When God gave his son, he gave it all! He gave his son and within his son we received a flow of overwhelming YESES toward us! God didn’t want us to perish so he gave us his son. Which is why today we can say such things like;

• Here’s my broken heart lord~ I delight in the broken-hearted. (Psalm 34:18)

• Here’s my trouble mind Lord ~ The Holy Spirit will intercede on your behalf, in your moments of weakness and troubles. (Romans 8:26)

• Lord I can’t find peace~ My peace surpasses all. (Philippians 4:6-7)

• Lord look at my financial needs~ I will meet all your needs according to my riches. (Philippians 4:19)

• Lord I feel alone ~ Be strong and courageous; for he will never leave you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

• Lord I feel you far away from me ~ The Lord is far from the wicked but near the righteous. (Psalm 15:29)

• Lord I feel weak ~ Come to me all who are with heavy loads and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

These are not even half of the riches that we have when we accept the Lord. It’s not enough speaking our love for the Lord but not living that radical love out. It’s not enough to praise certain days or when we are in a horrible situation. There’s no such thing as a part time christian! God sees all and in the midst of all, he sees who seeks him whole heartedly. In Matthew 15:8 the Lord reminds us that, “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” If you feel like your far away from God or that he is far away from you; analyze where your heart is at. Without fail we are the ones that run away from God. God never forsakes us. He is always there waiting in the same spot we left him.

Draw closer to God today. He is gentle toward his children. He is waiting for you to forgive yourself because he has already forgiven you. He’s waiting for you to return to his arms!

God bless !

  1. “To God be the Glory great things He has done”…….

    This Truth came into my Heart as I read your Message Victoria and the Scripture below followed, yes so very True what you shared, who wants to be half Loved or to come after everything else on someone’s Agenda. Thank you for your Godly Encouragement Victoria to Love Him with All our Hearts, which will be shown also in our Love for others.

    Mark 12:30-31 And thou shalt Love the Lord thy God with all thy Heart and with all thy Soul and with all thy Mind and with all thy Strength this is the first Commandment. And the second is like namely this, Thou shalt Love thy Neighbour as thyself. There is none other Commandment greater than these.(KJV)

    1 John 4:6-8 We are of God, he that knoweth God heareth us he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error. Beloved let us Love one another for Love is of God and every one that Loveth is Born of God and knoweth God. He that Loveth not knoweth not God for God is Love.(KJV)

    1 John 4:11-13 Beloved, if God so Loved us we ought also to Love one another. No man hath seen God at any time if we Love one another God dwelleth in us and His Love is Perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in Him and He in us because He hath given us of His Spirit.(KJV)

    Christian Love and God’s Blessings
