God's Healing Love

We all have an innate desire to receive genuine love. This has been built into the way we have been created and should be a constant experience in our lives. Love is powerful. It allows us to find our place in the world and have important feelings of belonging, acceptance and self-worth.

Sadly, many within our world are living without a consistent experience of true love. Missing words or actions that should come from our key relationships can leave voids and deep longings within us. When this happens, we accept our experience as a reflection of our value and we start to question whether we can ever be deserving of genuine love and loving treatment by others.

God has a strong desire to step into these types of thoughts by allowing us to see and understand that His pure and genuine love is available to you!

Ephesians 3:17b-18 reads,

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

God's love isn't an ordinary type of love. It is so great, deep and vast that it surpasses our human ability to understand it. God's special, pure and untainted love has the ability to bring healing to our hearts, filling our emotional needs for the genuine love our souls may be craving for.

God's healing love is readily available to all. The first step that one must take to receive this extraordinary love is to understand and accept that God loves you. No matter the occurrences or circumstances of your life, He has always loved you.

We can be assured of the great love that God has for us because he has proven His love through willingly laying down his life for us on the cross of Calvary. Through this very knowledge and acceptance of this sacrifice, we can embrace a love that is greater than no other (John 15:13).

Do you truly understand that you are loved by God?

Spend some time reading and meditating on the following scriptures to build up your security in God's love for you.

John 3:16
1 John 4:7-8
1 John 4:16
Isaiah 54:10
Psalm 86:15
