You Don't Have To Earn God's Love!

God gives us his love freely and unconditionally ALWAYS!  

I heard this in a sermon by Joyce Meyer in 2020 and it's been a repeating theme and message in my life.  I've been a Christian for a very long time, most of my life actually, but I always had the feeling that if I did something wrong or "bad", that God was disappointed in me and that I would have to earn his love back. 

I'm learning that type of thinking was a lie, and I believed it so long that I thought that I missed my chance to have a real relationship with God.  Worst of all, I didn't even know I thought like that until I heard it during that sermon.  She said "God loves us right now as much as he will EVER love us.  You can't earn it or buy it or lose it.  Imagine that and really think about that.  No matter if you do everything perfectly or if you hit bumps in the road, Gods love never changes so you NEVER have to worry about that and you never have to be ashamed to go to him. 

I made a conscious effort to keep that thought in my mind, and as time went by I eventually started catching myself thinking God was disappointed in me or I was a failure every time something went wrong.  I would remind myself that the lie isn't true.  Yes, I made the mistake but when I take that mistake humbly to God, he forgives me and he removes that sin as far away from me as the East is from the West (Psalm 103:12).

Never think that you've gone so far or did so much wrong that God doesn't love you anymore or that he loves you any less.  God loves you the same all the time.  Go to him, talk to him, start getting into your bible a little at a time and I promise you that your relationship with him will grow stronger and faster than you can imagine!

I'm so happy to know that no matter where I go, what I do, or what happens, God is always with me and he LOVES me! 

It is never to late to talk to him about anything at any time.
