Accepting God’s Love

Believe it or not, God loves you no matter what you may think! He loves you no matter what anybody may have said to you or done to you. God loves you no matter what trauma you may have gone through. No matter what your actions may be against love. God loves you! He loves you unconditionally in spite of your condition.  He loves you objectively in spite of your objections. He loves you irrespective of your lack of respect for him. He loves you in spite of that situation or circumstances. He has not forgotten about you and he will never forsake you.  

You may struggle to accept his love as a result of your experiences yet he will not reject you. This father’s love is unconditional and irreplaceable. Your heavenly father loves and cares for you deeply no matter what. His love is incomparable to any other human love on earth. God’s love gives you confidence and it boosts your ego. It helps you come into your own person and accelerates your growth in life. It doesn’t matter if you have never had a taste of that fatherly love’s experience, it doesn’t matter if the absence of a father has left a vacuum in your life. God’s love can and will fill you up to the overflowing.  

Father’s day for you may have been more of a remembrance day like it was for me until a few years ago than it was a day to celebrate my earthly father. His loss and his absence may have lost a vacuum in my heart for many years, thankfully God stepped in and filled the hole in my heart wuth his love. Today I celebrate the many father figures that have come my way. I celebrate on Father’s day many father figures in my life who have been there for me and who have stepped in at any time I needed the father’s guide and love. 

Father’s day for you may have been a day you were reminded of the abuse you suffered instead of the protection you needed. It may have been a day you remembered the rejection or the disapproval you suffered from your father instead of an acceptancehe  and approval you longed for. For you, father’s day may have been a reminder of your disappointments with your biological father. He may have disappeared when you needed him the most. He may have abused you, used you and dumped you. He may have cursed you instead of releasing a blessing over you. He may have disappeared into thin air when he was supposed to stand by you and stay with you. And this may make father’s day a difficult day for you.

The good news is, God’s love never disappoints. His love is like a rock, never moving, never shaken, always present. Always on stand by to comfort you and shower you with his love. His love is the ultimate. Where you have not known your biological father or you do not know him enough to experience his love, God knows you and his love for you never fails. He will do so much more for you than an earthly father could ever do for you. Nothing can stop God from loving you. He loves you beyond measure and nothing can separate you from his love.

The Bible says; “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?” (Romans 8:35S).

Where you may have lost your father to death or any other unforeseen circumstances, God is readily available to be the father you lost. He is the father of the fatherless and the husband of the widow. He comes riding with comfort in his wings and bearing provisions in his back. He is ever loving and ever faithful. He will never disappear on you and you can never lose him. Though an earthly father is a representative of a heavenly father on earth, But in a case where you have not seen God’s love through your biological father and you struggle to accept God’s love due to your experiences, God’s love can permeate through your heart on this Father’s Day if you will give him a chance. You too can enjoy God’s unending love when you choose to accept his love. And where you may be struggling to see or accept God’s love, the following Bible Declarations of faith would help open up your heart to receiving God’s love.
