Have you ever felt lonely or unappreciated? Have you ever been taken for granted or overlooked? Did you ever get the feeling that someone was being kind only for what they could get from you?
You are not alone. Not only are there countless others in the world who have had similar experiences, but there is One who is far greater than any of us who has experienced all of the above and more. One who loves far more than any of us can imagine.
Do you know that YHVH loves you whether or not you realize that He exists? He loves you even if you don’t love Him. He loves you even if you take advantage of His kindness, or if you take His blessings and protection for granted. His love endures even if you complain loudly that He’s not answering your latest request.
YHVH created a beautiful world for you to live in. Every good thing that you have ever had in your life came from Him. God loves you for who you are. He made you and is delighted with you.
So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures (James 1:16-18 MSG).
Just as we want to be appreciated and loved for ourselves, YHVH desires to be appreciated and loved for who He is. Thank Him every day for His many blessings and gifts. Tell Him that you love Him for who He is as well as for what He gives.
YHVH doesn’t need anything from us. He is totally self-sufficient. He does want something from us, though. He desires our love and our trust. He wants to have a relationship with us even though it will be a largely lopsided arrangement. He does most of the giving and we do most of the taking. YHVH never overlooks us and never takes any of us for granted.
Many people have been churchgoers for all or most of their lives, yet some have never experienced a one-on-one relationship with YHVH. If you feel that you have never encountered the one true God, call out to Him today. Even if it is just a whisper or a heart-cry, He will hear it. He is waiting every day and night to hear from you. You will never have to feel lonely or left out again. YHVH offers us genuine love that endures forever.
