God’s Promise - When I need assurance that God loves me
Recently I visited my great-aunt/Nana, and found this tiny (literally fit in the center of your palm) Bible that read “The Tiny Bible Promises”.
I gently asked her if I could have it, and she responded (as she always does) “You can have anything in this house, including me.” She is the sweetest. She will never know the impact of the tiny gift she gave me.
One of the powerful nuggets I have taken from this Tiny Bible of God’s unfailing promises is that no matter where we are, who we are, what we lack, what we desire to accomplish… God’s love for us is steadfast. It remains.
Being human, we often lose sight of how much we are loved by our Savior.
When we need assurance that God loves us, The Tiny Bible Promises refers to the book of Psalms and Romans for gentle reminders:
“For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.” Psalm 86:5 ESV
“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Psalm 103:8 ESV
“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103: 11-12 ESV
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 ESV
God Almighty loves you! Bask in that!
