Perhaps your like me. Perhaps, whether it’s just for a moment, or for the day – you struggle with knowing God’s reckless love for you. I don’t fully understand why we have to constantly battle this, but every so often, Satan tries to pollute my head and my heart with a lie that says: “God doesn’t love you.” Perhaps, you’re like me. And perhaps, you’ve struggled with walking in God’s perfect and yet reckless love for your life.
Early this morning, I had that moment come, again. That dark moment of the lie from Satan saying, “I’m worthless, God doesn’t love you.” And all day I have fought against this lie. It was dispatched against my head and heart with such fury that it has taken all that is within me to battle this potent lie with God’s truth. With His promise of His reckless love for me.
A key truth I’ve been resting in today comes from Zephaniah 3:17, and it says this: “The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.” Another version of this truth says that “with His love, He will calm all your fears.”
Scripture tells us to draw near to God. Fight the temptation that would allow anything else than the righteousness of Christ to be the source of strength that you draw from in those dark moments. Remind yourself of all that God has done for you – you can truly trust in Him. And allow yourself during those moments of fear to be consumed by the reckless love of your Savior.
Jesus has the final word. And with His mighty love, He will save you. Just call on Him – He will fill you with His hope. Remind yourself of all that He has done and trust in all that He will do, for you. Jesus, He has the final word. And He, is victorious!
