Daily Inspiration: Valentine's Day 2020


John 15: 9

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.”

 

Thought for Today

What a perfect verse for Valentine’s Day! How much do you think God the Father loves His Son, Jesus? I can’t even begin to fathom the depth of that love. They have loved each other perfectly for eternity. Now ask, “How much does Jesus love me?” Jesus answers, “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.” Jesus’ love for you has no end. He literally cannot love you more than He already does and He refuses to love you less! No matter what happens to you today, you can sleep well tonight knowing that God is still madly in love with you. The best Valentine’s gift would be to share that eternal love with someone else today? Who do you know that needs to be encouraged by the depth of Jesus love for them? How can you share it with them today?

 

Prayer

Lord Jesus, Your love for me is beyond my understanding. Thank you for loving me more than I could ever ask or imagine. Help Your love to overflow from my life into those I meet today. Amen

 

Devotional Quote for Today

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.”

Daily Inspiration: God is Holding Your Hand 4


Romans 5: 10

“For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life”

 

Thought for Today

While we were “God’s enemies” Jesus willingly died on the cross to stop the hostility between humanity and God. If God is willing to suffer and die to make you His own, how much more will He bless you once you are His beloved child again? The Apostle Paul declares, “More than all we can ever ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20). Isn’t it wonderful to know that God holds us simply for the joy He finds in it?

 

Prayer

Lord God, You amaze me. You saw me behaving like your enemy and Your response was to love me. Thank You for Your love that surpasses my understanding. Help me to live life confident of the blessings You have prepared for Your friends, among whom I am counted. Amen.

Daily Inspiration: God is Holding Your Hand 3


Romans 5: 8

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

 

Thought for Today

  1. came so that people who were utterly unworthy of God could be made worthy. Many people believe that God chooses people based on their performance. However, today’s verse tells us that God looked at you at your very worst moment and was still so in love with you that He sent His Son, Jesus, to make you worthy and calling you to Himself. This is the truth that many find so very hard to believe. God loves us as we are, not when we become as we think we should be.

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you for making me worthy of Your love and calling. Help me to grow daily into the person that You called me to be. Amen.

 

Devotional Quote for Today

“Fear and shame are now, indeed, powerless by the cross of Jesus Christ. Our only proper response is one of praise back to our Redeemer.” – Matt Conner

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. –Lao Tzu
