This Valentine’s Day, know that someone loves you. No matter who you are, where you are, or what you’ve done, there’s someone right now who loves you with an infinite and incomprehensible love. This is the same someone who put the stars in the sky, placed the sun in its orbit, and breathed life into the dust of the earth. The same God and Creator of the Universe loves you with a love deeper than the ocean, higher than the heavens, and wider than the east is from the west. Don’t believe me? Take a look at what the Bible says.
A Love that Surpasses Knowledge
The Lord’s love for his people is evidenced many times in the Bible and it doesn’t just apply to King David and Moses, it applies to you too.
“We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.” 1 John 4:16
“By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us.” 1 John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
His Love for You
Still need proof that this applies to you? Let’s read a few more passages.
“For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn’t hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my body. In your book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:13-16
“For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from God’s love, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
Dear Lord, in the times we feel unloved,
Remind us of Your love from above
That surpasses the knowledge and limits of earth,
That loves us boundlessly from birth.
“Yahweh, your God, is among you, a mighty one who will save. He will rejoice over you with joy. He will calm you in his love. He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
