TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
TRUE SECURITYHosea 2:20
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is God’s love letter to you. It’s not here one week, gone the next. People who say the three magic words ‘I love you,’ then fail to live up to it can make us think that God’s wired the same way. Because we live among people who disappoint us and let us down, it’s easy for us to assume that God works like that. But God is utterly committed to you: ‘...I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. I will rebuild you ...You will again be happy...’ (Jeremiah 31:3,4 NLT).
Letting God’s love filter down from our heads to our hearts means we don’t need to look for love in all the wrong places. Nothing about us surprises God or makes Him change His mind, ‘Even when we are too weak to have any faith left, He remains faithful to us… for He cannot disown us.’ (2 Timothy 2:13 TLB) If we are faithless, He remains faithful. He says, ‘I have called you by name; you are mine… You are precious to me. You are honoured, and I love you.’ (Isaiah 43:1,4 NLT) You might take your eye off God but He never, ever takes His eye off you. You’re the apple of His eye.
Take a highlighter pen to God’s words to you in today’s reading. Then mull over them. Speak them over yourself and allow God’s love in.
