What is the greatest feeling in the world? I believe the greatest feeling is the feeling of being loved by someone. There is nothing like it. Knowing someone loves you means that person is supporting you, thinking of you and desires to be with you no matter what. That someone is Jesus. His love for you is immensely insane. The truth is, He died for you before you knew Him. Proving how much He loves you. For this reason, I want to encourage you and share with you three ways Jesus is showing His love for you.
1. Jesus is supporting you. You’re never alone. Jesus is always with you desiring to help you. It says in Isaiah 41:10, “…I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” No matter what’s going in your life, Jesus got your back! All you need to do is turn to Him and trust Him. Ask Him for wisdom, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This past year, I’ve seen God help me and many others in small and great matters. And guess what? He’s not done. There is more in store. I encourage you to expect Him to help you no matter how insignificant or important it is.
2. Jesus is thinking about you. After Jesus died, He didn’t going on with His life and say, “I’m done. I died. Mankind should be good now.” No, no, no. After He died, you remained continually on His mind. He’s thinking of you and your future. He’s thinking thoughts of peace and protection. Even now, He’s planning on how He’s going to bless you. His desire is to see you get better and better each year. I want to encourage you to take some to remind yourself that God is thinking good thoughts about you. Remind yourself that God is not depressed about you, but He’s happy about you.
3. Jesus desires to be with you. Paul had a question, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Romans 8:35) Paul was asking to emphasize that there is nothing that can separate you from Jesus. The Lord desires your presence and delights in you. He is excited about being with you and will allow nothing to get in between you and Him. For this reason, walk confidently knowing Jesus is continually with you and that you are never alone.
Given these points, be comfortable in your skin. Look forward to a year of positivity and progress. Expect nothing but blessing from the Father. He loves you and is pleased about you.
