I declare in Jesus’ name Your love is enough. I receive it. I believe it and I will share it today because You give the greater measure!
“NOBODY LOVES ME”
Every Christian, no matter how long they’ve been walking with God, has to deal with the thought pattern that “nobody loves me.” It is one of the devil’s favorite lies. If you are smart enough to realize you are greatly loved by God and the circle of people you are blessed with, the devil will still try to get you to focus on the one or two dummies who should love you, but don’t.
Yes, I have people in my life – some are blood – who should love me, but they don’t. They likely never will because they just refuse. I have been incredibly hurt and disappointed because I want to be on their good side. I want them to value me. They don’t.
Who in your life fits that bill? How much time do you spend trying to get their love and approval? Here’s a news flash – stop.
Why should your attention be given to those one or two people who refuse to love you, when there are others who do care about and respect you? Shouldn’t you focus on them instead?
Here’s the gist of it all: When our mental attention is devoted to those who do not love us, our lives become afflicted in every area. Yes, EVERY area. If you want strife, focus on trying to please the unpleasable. You will self destruct!
Let me ask you a question. Is God the most amazing person ever? Is He perfect, loving, good and just? The answer to both questions is a resounding, “YES!” Then why do so many people refuse to love Him? If God can’t make people love Him, what makes you think you can?
But God proves His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. –Romans 5:8
God loves you just because He does. You didn’t have to do anything to earn it. As a matter of fact, you can’t earn it and you don’t deserve it. It is just His character to love you because, the Bible tells us, God IS love.
So, rather than focus on those few people you cannot please, focus on God. Get to know His perfect love, His ways and His truth. It will give you the ability to focus on those who love and support you.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO STOP CHASING AFTER PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO LOVE YOU. FOCUS ON JESUS, WHO LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT!
