HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT!
But Lord, your endless love stretches from one eternity to the other, unbroken and unrelenting toward those who fear you and those who bow face down in awe before you. Psalm 103:17 TPT
Have you ever played He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not? It’s a game by which you seek to determine whether the object of your affection returns your affection. The phrase is alternately spoken while picking a petal off a flower. The phrase spoken upon plucking off the last petal supposedly represents the verdict—loved or not loved.
Do you ever feel like you’re playing He loves me with God?
When you’ve prayed and prayed yet God seems to be silent—He loves me not.
When life is falling down all around you—He loves me not.
When the answer comes and it’s a No—He loves me not.
In these circumstances, it’s easy to believe that God’s love may be for everyone else, but not for me. The voice of the enemy becomes louder and his lies more insistent— God doesn’t care about you. He doesn’t really love you. You’re just not lovable!
When you find yourself struggling with the truth of God’s love for you, it helps to ask—
Whose voice am I listening to?
Where is my own voice aligned? How am I using my voice when I talk to myself?
How would my life be different if I thought God’s thoughts toward me?
What voice am I giving authority in my life?
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
Jeremiah 31:3 NIV
Use your voice to align with God’s truth by declaring what He says about His beloved you—
He loves me!
Go ahead, say it. . . out loud!
You love me!
