    The Truth Will Set You Free

    Monday, July 27, 2015

    I want to ask you a question today, “Do you really believe God loves you?” Or do you believe He just tolerates you?

    Somewhere along the line we may have gotten the idea that God just “puts up with us” because He has to. Our hearts were designed for love, and if we don’t think we can freely receive it, then we will try to earn it.

    Understanding God’s love for us is the only thing that can truly bring peace and rest to our hearts. His love is unconditional and everlasting.

    God doesn’t just love you; He is love. God can’t be unloving. It’s simply not possible. It is hard for our human minds to comprehend that His love is far different than what we’ve experienced from other people.

    We need to stop trying so hard to earn God’s love. His love is given to us freely and forever. It’s time to stop trying so hard, let your heart be still and simply receive it.

    Claim John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” The truth is that He loves you unconditionally and you are God’s girl.
