Your heavenly Father loves you with a perfect and beautiful love. And because He knows absolutely everything about you, there is nothing you can hide from Him. And He also desires for you to understand His abundant love for you. Are you accepting God’s abundant love?
How to Find God’s Truth
There are two main reasons that we will need truth to start accepting God’s abundant love for us. First, we need the truth so we can know how adored we are by our heavenly Father and second, we need the truth to fight the lies of the enemy.
During my years as a child I remember my mother asking me what in the world was wrong with me. She did not understand me, really, which just made it all so much worse. I later learned that I was battling with depression. And for way too many years, as a result of not know how to handle it, the depression just got worse and worse. During this time I thought that there was something wrong with me, that I was broken somehow.
While studying psychology during college I learned that what was wrong with me was not my fault. I was not broken, but completely fixable! Understandably, it was a huge relief for me to have this information. Over the years I have tried many different routes to “cure” my depression, but the thing that has helped me the most, is truth.
The truth about my past and the hurt.
Truth about what I thought of myself.
The truth about my husbands love for me.
Truth about God’s love for me.
And most of all,
Truth that stops the lies that fill my head.
Brothers and sisters we need God’s truth and there is no better way to get it than His word, the Bible. Therefore, we need to be spending time in the Bible every day. Even if you only have a few minutes, spend a little time going over just a couple of verses.
5 of My Favorite Ways to Spend Time with God:
- Join an online study
- Get a Bible Study Book
- Get a Study Bible
- Email Studies
- Studies through the Mail
I have found all of these resources very helpful in my study of God’s word and quest to find the truth of my worth to my Father.
The Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to comfort and guide us. Therefore He will give us wisdom and understanding as we read, if we ask Him. Start you time in the Word with a prayer for knowledge and wisdom, so you can grow in faith and strength of mind. As you pray and read He will also show you the truth of His amazing love. As a result of the truth you have gleaned from you studies, you will have an easier time accepting God’s abundant love for you. In addition, you will also have an easier time fighting the lies that can so quickly and easily fill our hearts and minds.
