For many years my precious girl and I have had a tradition at bedtime. She tells me she loves me and I tell her I love her more. It can then go on to I love you more than more or even I love you more than more than more! At the end of it all we both know that we really love each other!
Today I sat with the Lord praying for my children. I prayed for my son and thought about how much I love him and at that moment the Lord said “I love him more! In fact, I love him more than more than more than more! I love him the most!” I let his love wash over me bringing me peace, knowing that the Saviour, Redeemer, Protector, Jesus Christ loved my children more than more than more!
I sat in the glow of His love knowing that He also loves me more than more than more. He loves me the most! No matter how many times I think about my Jesus during the day, He thinks about me more. No matter how much I think I love my Saviour, He loves me more!
Romans 8:38-39 says, “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 depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Nothing can separate you from God’s love because He loves you more. Not death, not satan, not principalities, because He loves you more. Nothing in your present day situation or things that will come in your future can separate you from His love, because He loves you more. His love covers a multitude of sins, it’s the kind of love that makes us children of the Most High God (1 Jn 3:1)! It’s a love that lays down His life for you (Jn 15). A jealous love, a love as strong as death, a love that cannot be quenched (S.O.S. 8:6-7), one that prepares a table before you in the presence of your enemies and anoints your head with oil (Ps 23:5)! Jesus’ love is steadfast, everlasting, a covenant of love (Deut 7:1). Surely He loves us the most!
“We should be astonished at the goodness of God, stunned that He should bother to call us by name, our mouths wide open at His love, bewildered that at this very moment we are standing on holy ground.” – Brennan Manning
