Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you.
—Jeremiah 31:3 NKJV
There is only one thing you can do with a free gift, and that is receive it and be grateful. I urge you to take a step of faith right now and say out loud, “God loves me unconditionally, and I receive His love!” It took me a long time to fully accept His love. When you feel unlovable, it is hard to get it through your head and down into your heart that God loves you perfectly—even though you are not perfect and never will be as long as you are on the earth. You may have to say it a hundred times a day, like I did for months, before it finally sinks in, but when it does it will be the happiest day of your life. To know that you are loved by someone you can trust is the best and most comforting feeling in the world. God will not only love you that way, but He will also provide other people who will truly love you. When He does provide, be sure to remain thankful for those people. Having people who genuinely love you is one of the most precious gifts in the world.
God loves you! God loves you! God loves you! Believe it and receive it!
Lord, I declare Your everlasting love for me. You have drawn me with loving-kindness, and I believe and receive it. Amen.
