God’s Love In Ordinary Moments – Livin What You Know

“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” Jer. 31:3 (NLT)

So let’s begin with a question: “How have you seen or experienced God in your life in recent days?” Not a few years ago, or even months ago, but in the last week? The fact is God loves you with and everlasting love, an unfailing love. That is an overwhelming truth. That truth alone should change the way we view everything that has ever happened in your life up to this point.

In every struggle you have ever had, when you have wrestled with doubt, those times when you felt like giving up…someone or something guided you through it, pointed you to God’s Word, encouraged you…that was God loving you with an everlasting love. That was Him pouring out His love on you in a lavish way. That was Him drawing you to Himself.

This verse in Jeremiah declares to us that God loves us and draws us to Himself throughout all of life, regardless of what we are going through or facing, regardless of how we stray or wander. Take a few moments today and retrace the times when God placed people or circumstances in your life that drew you to Him. Ask Him to reveal those moments of Him loving you even when you didn’t notice.

My prayer for you today is that as you reflect on His word to you in Jer. 31:3 that you will know and experience God’s love and presence in every detail of your life. The more we see His love in our past, the more we remember, the more we will see His love breaking through in the ordinary moments of our daily lives.

So how have you seen His love in the past? Have you experienced Him more in times of pain or prosperity? What is one way you see His love working in your life today?
