Jesus, Lover of My Heart (Soul)

Are their days in your life when you don’t  feel very loved?  Days when you doubt God’s love for you?  Days when you are not even sure that you love yourself?

A lot of our misgivings and doubts about God’s love for us come from Satan.  We let the negative thoughts that we hear in our minds over power us and control what we think about ourselves.  Satan is a liar and a great deceiver.  His plans are to keep us defeated. When negative words or thoughts begin to come into your mind – just whisper the sweet name of Jesus.  Jesus !  Jesus !  Jesus !

Over and over in God’s word He speaks of His unfailing and enduring love for us. His great love for us was so painfully displayed on the cross. Do we deserve such love?  NO!  Are there things  that we can do to cause Him to love us more?  To love us less?  NO!  His love is free!!  His love is unconditional!!  His love is forgiving !!   His  love is available to all who are willing to receive it.  All because of the Cross.

As I have been working on this blog  for  the last several days, I began to look up related scripture and songs speaking about His love for us.  His love for us is weaved so beautifully through out His word.  One particular verse that has come back to me several times this week is found in I Samuel 16:7.  But the LORD said to Samuel, “do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him.  The LORD does not look at the things man looks at.  Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at  the  heart.”

Many times our feelings about ourselves come from what we assume that another  person thinks about us. We begin to think that we are not good enough. That we  aren’t  smart enough!  Not pretty enough!  Our home is not big enough!  The lies from Satan go on and on. So often we spend too much time trying to be who someone else tells us that we should be, instead of asking God who or what He wants us to be.

Isn’t  it so great to know that  God doesn’t  care about all of  these things?  Isn’t it good to know that he doesn’t judge us the way people do?  He only looks at the heart.

What is the condition of your heart today?  Are you doubting yourself?  Are you doubting God’s love for you?  Are you struggling to silence Satan’s lies?

I encourage you to take time out of your schedule today and sit with your Savior. Talk to Him. Read His word. Rest in His Presence.  You will find Him wating for you—-THE LOVER OF YOUR HEART !


Psalm 117:2
For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD.

Psalm 138:8
The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands.

Zephaniah 3:17
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
