God Loves Youby Gilbert Sommert
God Loves You! Keep this truth foremost in your mind regardless of what you have done or what is facing you. God not only loves you but is also interested in your most intimate relationships of life.

You and I were created by a great God; by the God who created heaven and earth and all things therein. God is not limited as men are bound to limitations. There comes a time when our strength is exhausted, but God's power is inexhaustible. He is omnipotent, all powerful. Our understanding is finite, but God's understanding is infinite. The Bible declares that "all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do." (Hebrews 4:13). Similarly, our love may come
to an end but the love of God toward man knows no limit. In many cases broken relationships in the home have resulted in the breakdown of love and homes have been rent asunder, but God's love for us is steady. We may even deny the fact of God's concern for us, but this does not lessen His care. Just because one may deny the law of gravity, it does not mean that this law has been suspended. Because one may act as though God does not really care for him, it does not change the attitude or characteristics of God. He is an unchanging God and our acceptance or rejection of divine truth in no way minimizes His truth. The Bible says, "If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful." So man's unfaithfulness would in no manner make God unfaithful.
We do not have to search long to find that frequently men act very unloving. But God's love still is outstretched to all men, regardless of their attitude toward Him.
There was a time when I had very little time for God, and the belief that I possessed was a knowledge of God's reality but not a belief that caused me to obey Him. Like most young people, I wanted to live as I had planned. But God had a plan for my life, just as real as He has for you, and the conviction settled upon my heart that I needed God. Now I did not surrender to Him immediately, nor did the Holy Spirit cease dealing with me just because I was stubborn. The Spirit of God continued to convince me of the need of accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord of my life. And I, in turn, found no real peace or serenity of soul until I bowed before God and asked Him to make me His own.
That night I was changed on the inside and I began to desire the will of God for my life. This experience of conversion created by the Holy Spirit in response to my surrender to God was essential to experiencing more of the blessings God had in store. Had I not yielded to God but had rejected His plea to become my Saviour, my name would not have been recorded in heaven's Book of Life that night. Yet God would still have continued to love me, although His Spirit would have been
God loves all men and desires that all men should come to a knowledge of their sins being forgiven. The Bible says, "If God be for you, who can be against you." God is for you, that is, He is desiring the best for you. God's dealings with you are for your own good and for His ultimate glory. Anything that God does for you is really for your benefit. Since God has a plan for your life, He knows that you will only be fully content when you are fulfilling His plan for you. Just as every part of your
automobile is meant to fit into its proper relationship with the other parts, so our life is satisfied only when it is properly related to God.
Do you ever feel disturbed and frustrated? Remember that God knows just how you feel and He waits to help you in times like these. When a straw is floating down the river, the water can flow through the straw; but if that piece of straw is held across the river, it will break or bend. When our life is in tune with God, His love can flow through us. However, if we are at cross purposes with God's plan for our life, we will ruin and wreck it.
Don't ever try to run away from God's will and plan. He is so much wiser than any man. God's call is for commitment to His will and surrender to the saving power of Jesus Christ. Really, God does love you and once you believe it with all your heart, you will trust Him with your life
