God's love is like great coffee.

Jennifer Cole

You may be thinking…”Okay, okay, I know God loves me. I’ve already heard that.” But what if I told you there’s more? There’s more to it. There’s more for you to understand and to experience...and that doing so would be life changing, in all the best ways. Interested?

Think of it this way. Picture yourself making coffee at home. You put some grounds into the filter basket, add water to the machine and after some time percolating, the machine has produced some delicious coffee for you to enjoy. But let me ask you this...are the grounds coffee? Certainly they can become coffee, after steeping in hot water through the process of percolating. But grounds in-and-of themselves aren’t coffee. Your relaxing quiet time doesn’t include sitting down with a book and your favorite mug full of coffee grounds. It’s just not the same thing!

What I want to suggest today is that knowing that God loves you is like having coffee grounds. Yes, it’s a vital part of the process to have the grounds...to have an awareness of what the Bible says about God’s love for you. But don’t stop there! God wants you to experience -- personally -- His great love for you. He wants you to see His thumbprint all over every area of your life. For you to be so aware of His vast love for you that everywhere you look, you’re seeing His love lavished upon you in both little and big ways.

Certainly we start by reading the Bible verses that confirm that God loves us. (Several are provided below.) That fills our basket full of coffee grounds. But then we need to go through the percolating process to truly manifest those verses into something we can “taste,” enjoy and personally experience.

>>What are some ways we can do this? 

First and foremost, make the decision -- the choice -- to accept His love. His unconditional, complete and abundant love for YOU. If you resist or reject the love He has for you, that’s like never putting water in your coffee maker and wondering why you’re never experiencing His love in your life. As an aside -- symptoms of this being true in your life would include a life consistently marked by discouragement, loneliness, bitterness and resentment. Not just due to a bad day here or there, but as an overarching “yea, that describes my life” kind-of-thing. Be encouraged today -- it doesn’t have to be like that anymore! You can and absolutely should make the intentional choice to believe in His love for you!

And secondly, once you’ve made that decision to accept His love for you, look for it. Look for it everywhere, in big things and small things. What might that look like? You get favor at work, getting the promotion you thought you had no chance at. Someone anonymous pays for your meal. That new shirt you were wanting goes on super sale and the one that is left is exactly your size. A friend texts you a note of encouragement out-of-the-blue. Your favorite worship song keeps coming on the radio station. The Basics With Beth TV episode that morning or night seems to speak right to you. (Come on now, y’all!) 

Seriously, once you accept His great love for you and are intentional about looking for it -- you will see that it’s all around you, always! God is active. He is constantly pouring out His love for you. He wants you to experience it and to learn more and more each day the incredible height, depth, width and breadth of His love for you. You matter. He knows you. And, He LOVES you.

Say This: “Father, I thank You so much for Your great love for me. I know what the Bible says about Your love for me, but I want that knowledge to transition into experience of Your love for me personally. Today I choose to believe that You mean what You say -- that You love me fully, unconditionally and without bounds! It’s not about what I feel or think, it’s about what Your Word says is true -- so I believe and receive Your love for me! You are actively expressing Your love for me every single day -- Lord, help me to see it more and more as I intentionally look for and acknowledge Your love at work in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
