Love That We All Need
Many people have experienced so many different aches and pains in their lives. Everyone in this world desires to be loved. Most people have experienced failed relationships such as a significant other, family, church relationships and friends. We look for love, and we sometimes believe the way we do things is the correct way to love another person. However, the deepest love and the most genuine love can only come from God.
I heard in the past that there is a place inside all of our hearts that is meant specifically for God. However, people search for others things to fill that place in their hearts, so they are let down when an imperfect person makes a mistake. The key to experiencing real love is not in another person, but in a relationship with God. See there is a certain level of love and care that my husband will never be able to give me. There are certain areas of hurt and pain that even my mom would not understand or my best friend. Only God can meet those deepest needs.
If there is a void because the absence of your father, your mother, or some type of failed relationship, seek out God. He loved you so much that he sent his son to die on the cross for your sins. The Bible describes it as no greater love that has ever been shown. I love that scripture in Romans chapter 5 where it says that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Then on top of that Jesus did no wrong, but he bore the sins that we would commit. On top of that, he would have done that even if he had to do it for just YOU. God is concerned about the collective, but he is especially concerned about the individual. He loves you that much.
Romans 8:38-39 "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor death, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
The scripture referenced above is so powerful because it talked about the unchanging, unbreakable, and unyielding love of God for us. God will not let anything separate us from his love. It is so amazing because that's how strong his love is towards us, which was shown in the sacrifice made with Jesus Christ. God did what was absolutely necessary to mend the severed relationship between Him and man. Is that not amazing?
You have to know that this God cares about you. That he wants what is best for you. That he will never leave you. That he will always be there waiting on the opportunity to strengthen you, encourage you, and guide you in life's obstacles.
