A Love Letter from God
Verses compiled and combined by Jesse Jost
I want you to know how much I truly love you. Yes, I have loved you, with an everlasting love; with loving kindness I have drawn you. I have searched you and known you. I know your sitting down and your rising up, I understand your thought afar off. I comprehend your path and your lying down, I am acquainted with all your ways. I have hedged you behind and before, I have laid My hand on you. I know, such knowledge is too wonderful for you, it is so high you can not attain it.
But where can you go from My Spirit, or where can you flee from My presence? If you ascend into heaven, I am there. If you make your bed in the depths, I am there as well. If you take the wings of the morning, or dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there My hand shall lead you, and My right hand shall hold you. The darkness shall not hide you, the darkness and the light are both alike to Me.
Little One, I created every part of you; I tenderly covered you in your mother’s womb. You were not hidden from Me while I skillfully knit your skeleton. I saw you even before you were formed.
You are truly precious in My sight! How often I think of you!! If you could count the times, they would number more than the sands of the sea. The thoughts I have of you are plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future with hope!
Fear not, I am with you. Don’t be dismayed, I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes I will help you. I hold you in My hand.
All the days I have fashioned for you are written in My book. I set the number of days you have on this earth before you even existed, and nothing can shorten them. You are Mine, little one, and no one can snatch you from My hands.
O how I love you!! Abide in My love. I will quiet you with My love, I will rejoice over you with singing.
Precious one, do not despise My chastening, for I chasten those I love. I do this for your profit, that you may partake of My holiness. Behold, eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it even entered in to the heart of man, the things that I have prepared for those who love Me.
You love Me because I first love you. You know, there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for his friend. This is even how you know love, because I laid down My life for you.
O that you could comprehend the width and length and depth and height of My love which surpasses knowledge. For what shall separate you from My love? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or peril, or sword? There is nothing, not death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor any other created thing, that shall ever be able to separate you from My love.
My Child, not even your sins can separate you from my love. Dear one, I wish you could see the depth of my grace! Reason with me, though your sins are as scarlet, I can make you so that you are as white as snow. Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past! I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for My own sake, and remembers your sins no more!
Think about these things, my dear one: If I am for you, who can be against you?! Who can bring a charge against you? I am the One who justifies you! Who is the one condemning you? I died in your stead, rose from the dead, and I am at the right hand of my Father, pleading for you! Who does that leave?! Who is making you feel guilty?
Do you have any idea how much I paid so that you could walk away from your sins and be free from them? Why do you ignore My finished work! I said, “It is finished!” There is nothing more you can do to atone for your sin. If you will agree with me and admit that what you did was wrong, I promise you I will forgive your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Child, listen to me, your sins are forgiven you for My name’s sake! Your sins are forgiven you, go and sin no more! Even if your heart condemns you, I am greater then your heart, and know all things.
If I set you free, you will be free indeed. It is for freedom that I have set you free. Stand firm then! Don’t let yourself be burdened again by a yoke of slavery! My mercies are new every morning! Accept what I have done. It is by nothing you have done that you can be justified in My sight. I became sin for you. I give you My righteousness. When My Father looks at you, He doesn’t see your sins. They were all wiped away at the cross for those who put their faith in Me. You stand clean before Me. Because of the cross, you are blameless. Believe Me when I tell you that your sins are forgiven you! Go and sin no more. Without me, you can do nothing. But through Me, you can do whatever I ask of you!
I love you dearly!
Love from your God and Savior,
