Ever had the feeling that there is something you should be doing that you’re not? The nagging feeling that what you have done already is not enough? Shame! The feeling that ‘we’ are wrong, rather than our behaviour.
God’s love is the antidote to shame. I am writing this for myself, because I need to remind myself that God’s love is the most powerful thing there is. Because God is love and there is none more powerful than God.
His love is continuous, immovable, not subject to change, unfailing, completely dependable, perfect, complete and not based on my performance. So no matter what I do or don’t do, God loves me. No matter how wrong I may feel sometimes, especially when I’m not ‘performing’, God still loves me. God still loves you. It is not going anywhere!! Thank God. I need that kind of love. Don’t you?
“We have known and have believed the love that God has for us.God is love…” 1 John 4:16
