Asking for prayers for my cousin Arnold, as he searches for a job in the field of his studies. He has been applying for a couple of months now and I can see how drained, numb he has become. I am praying for faith that God is going to do things in God's timing, as well as for resilience on Arnold's part that no matter how many rejections he has got in the past, he won't give up on going for the things he wants. thank you.

It’s no surprise of course that words are another way through which we both receive and give love.

True for us, and true for God. Whether or not you felt like you were able to “hear” God’s voice in that silent space just now, the truth is that God has given us many words expressing his heart toward us. So let’s take a minute to listen to these declarations God has already made about his deep and abiding love for every single one of us.

  • See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! – 1 John 3:1
  • Like a shepherd God will tend the flock; he will gather lambs in his arms and lift them onto his lap. – Isaiah 40:11
  • The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. – Zephaniah 3:17
  • “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
  • For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. – Psalm 139:13-14
  • I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with lovingkindness. – Jeremiah 31:3
  • Can a woman forget her nursing child, and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. – Isaiah 49:15-16
  • Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:38-39
