Soulful Sunday - "Lies Women Believe" - About God part 2


Soulful Sunday "Lies Woman Believe"
by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

About God - Part 2

God Doesn't Love Me





Few of us would actually admit we think this. Truth is, many Christian women do believe this. Christian women know,in our mind ,we are suppose to be believe that God does loves us.

"For many women, there is a disconnection between what they know intellectually and what they feel to be true...We trust what we feel to be true, rather than what we know to be true."

We may sometimes feel that no one loves us..not even God. If He did love us then the loneliness we feel would not be there. "So the seed of a lie is planted in our minds; we dwell on the lie until we believe it to be true; sooner or later, our behavior reflects what we really believe; and we end up in bondage."

Read what one woman shared about her back ground:

"I come from a somewhat difficult and distant family, in which love was always conditional. As a result, it was very hard for me to believe God could really love e unconditionally. That brought undue condemnation whenever I would make mistake and sin - not that sin is anything to be overlooked - but I did not believe God would forgive me."

"It is no small matter to give in to the lie that "God doesn't love me." The implications are enormous and affect every other area of our lives and relationships. Tiny little seeds, allowed to take root in our minds, grow up to produce a great big harvest."

THE TRUTH IS: God does love us! Whether we feel it or we don't. Not because of what we we have done or who we are. He loves us because He is love. We do not deserve this love nor is there anything we could ever do to deserve it.
"According to the Bible, from the moment I was born, I was ungodly, a sinner, God's enemy, and deserving of His eternal wrath (Romans 5:6-10). In spite of my alienation from Him, He loved me and sent His Son to die for me. He loved me eternity past; He will love me for all of eternity future. There is nothing I could do to make Him love me any less; there is nothing I could do to make Him love me anymore."

Melana Moore, a breast cancer survivor, wrote this about how she has come to have a "deeper comprehension of the incredible love of God, through her husband's response to her double mastectomy":

"As we wept and trembled when he took my bandages off the first time, I was so ugly, scarred and bald. I was in intense grief that I could never be a whole wife to him again. Steve held me tightly and with hears in his eyes said , "Melana, I love you because that is who I am. I instantly recognized Christ in my husband. As His bride, we are also eaten up with cancer-sin-and are scarred, mutilated and ugly, but He loves us because that is who He is. No comeliness in us draws Christ's attention; it is only His essence that draws Him to us."

Hannah Whitall Smith tries to describe the greatness of God's love:
"Put together all the tenderest love you know of, the deepest you have ever felt, and the strongest that has ever been poured out upon you, and heap upon it all the love of all the loving human hearts in the world, and then multiply it by infinity, and you will begin, perhaps, to have some faith glimpse of what the love of God is."

Here are a few things to think about until next time:

How can you live within reality of God's love even on those days when you don't feel His love?

It has been said that if we could begin to grasp the greatness of God's love, our lives would be totally transformed. How would you think differently about God, about yourself, and about your circumstances if you truly understood how incredibly much God loves you?

What are some ways you can grow in your understanding of the love of God?

"Lord, I know that You love me. I admit that on some days I just don't feel it. Remind me at those times not to trust my feelings but to believe the truths I know from Your Word. Amen."

I will admit, this one is one of my biggest lies. I can tell my children how much God loves them, and my friends, and my husband. But can come up with many excuses as to why God wouldn't love me the same way. I really struggle understand and comprehending UNCONDITIONAL love because other than my mother, how HAS to love me..LOL..I haven't seen it. Not from the rest of my family other than an aunt, not even from some church family...so I struggle here very much.

Shelby said...

I know God loves me very much. Sometimes...I need a reminder, even when I didn't think I needed one. Like reading of what Christ and God went through to let us live with him, or watching Passion of the Christ. Doing those reminds me God loves me, and I love him for doing that for me.

Satan loves to tell us lies about God's love. He wants us to believe that God is mad at us or that He (God) does not love us anymore. However Romans 8:37-39 tells us of Gods Love. "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the presents nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all cration, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (NIV). So friends God loves you even when you don't feel it.
