I just love radio stations! They can play one song over and over till it gets stuck in your mind. The good thing is as we continuously listen, we the listeners unconsciously learn lyrics. So I have been musing over one line from Tauren Wells' song "Known", which gets quite a lot of air time on my favorite Christian Radio, K-Love. It simple says "I'm fully known and loved by you". It got me thinking yet again about the love of God: the richness, the fullness and the incredible nature of that love. Yes, God knows you and I fully and still loves us so dearly. Think about it.
He knows fully all the different parts that make us. God knows who we really are: our filth, deceitful attitudes, sinful behaviour, hypocritical lifestyle, our struggles; He knows what you were up to last night. Yes, God knows that side of you noone else knows, the side you cover up so well with sleek make-up and sharp suits. He is aware of all the stuff you do not talk about and yet loves you unconditionally.
Some of us have not revealed our true selves even to our loved ones; we have not shared certain things about us with them because we are afraid that once they know they may not love us anymore. Well, God is aware of all that; He sees us through and through, yet He loves us unreservedly. Wow!! What manner of love is this.
God Himself says, "...“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you."Jeremiah 31:3.
His love is sovereign. it never changes, it protects us and nothing can separate us from the love of God. It lasts forever, it perseveres and persists and is available to all. It does not matter what you have done, where you have been, His love is wide enough to embrace you and all that makes you. It is truly unconditional. Think about it: you are fully, completely and openly known by God and loved fully, completely and openly by Him. That should make you feel indescribably good about yourself. Yep. Think about it.
