Everyday Promises – 42

GREAT BIG LOVE

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;    Psalm 103:11 NIV

The astounding vastness of the universe is mind boggling. According to NASA the distance to our closest star, Proxima Centauri is 40,208,000,000,000 km away. As a young woman I struggled with low self-esteem. It plagued my life and every negative thing that occurred was absorbed as evidence that I had no value. For many years I felt that not even God could love someone so worthless. Be assured that my faulty thinking was totally unfounded. God’s love is immense as this verse tells us. If his love is greater than the enormity of the universe, then it is big enough to love the most pitiable creature on earth. He loves everyone but when we give ourselves into his care, his love is even more passionate and substantial. No matter how you see yourself or how lonely and unloved you feel, Jesus loves you immeasurably. He wants you. You belong to him. So believe his words and be filled and comforted.
