God IS Love

“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.” 1 John 4:16

God is love. He cannot help always loving because that is who He is. God can only love you because He is love. He loves you every day; not only on days He feels like it or on days that you please Him. His nature, character, personality is love.
God loves you.
He feels affection toward you.
God is especially fond of you.
He loves you dearly.
He is well pleased with you.

He is well pleased with me? Yes! Because He made you. He formed you. He perfected you. He knows you. Deeply. Inside and out. He is pleased with you. That’s what ‘agape’ means.

Do you believe God loves you? Like that? So deeply. Can you even begin to comprehend the width, length, depth, and height of His love? It is a love that surpasses knowledge. I don’t think we need to comprehend it, even try to understand it.
We just need to accept it.
Believe it.
Abide in it.
Wallow in it.
Just settle in and let it splash all over you.
Coating you.
Covering you.
Protecting you.
Redeeming you.
Saving you.
Healing you.

Wallow a little. Abide a little. Indulge in His plentiful supply. Devote yourself entirely to His love. Abide in God’s love and let God abide in you. Remember, God loves you because He is love. He cannot help but love you.
