Ways to Discover the Enormous Love of God
There is nothing more enormous and intense in the world than the love that God has for His people, including you. God loves you and cares for you – this is the ultimate truth. However, in today’s world where people are constantly distracted and preoccupied by earthly endeavors, it can be quite difficult to realize that ultimate truth. The noises and nuisances of the world are leading you to believe that the love of God does not exist. This is something that you must battle against. To live the best life in accordance to the plan of God, you must combat the distractions and deceptions of the world. The discussion on God’s gestures of love by Betsy Fritcha in her book, Apocalypse Here and Now: Are You Ready, particularly emphasizes that God Himself is doing something to get your attention and help you regain your focus on the truth. However, you, as an individual, also needs to do something to help yourself discover or rediscover the enormous love of God.
Read the Bible and other books about God
If you want to know how enormous the love of God is, what you need to do first and foremost is to read the Bible. The Bible is the ultimate literature that contains the instructions and promises of God as well as the stories and sacrifices of the one true savior, Jesus Christ. By reading the Bible, you can discover the truth and hope that God offers. The Bible essentially provides you with the tools that you need to live the best life possible in accordance to the plan of God. Aside from the Bible, there are also other books you can read to increase your knowledge about God and His immense love. Books written by such authors as Betsy Fritcha are gifts from God Himself. In a noisy world where people absorb the biased truth on a regular basis, you need to read books that echo the voice of God. Apocalypse Here and Now: Are You Ready is a great example of these kinds of books.
Pay attention to your blessings
The enormous love of God is often reflected in the abundance of blessings that you receive in your life. God showers you with His blessings because He loves you so much. However, oftentimes, many people fail or refuse to realize this. They are too consumed by the noises and nuisances of life that they do not realize how blessed they are by God. This subsequently leads them to asking whether or not the love of God exists. If you pay attention to your blessings all the time, then you would know that the answer to such question is, of course, yes! The fact that you can wake up in the morning is already a blessing in itself. The beauty of the sky above you and the environment surrounding you is also an enough blessing to manifest the love of God. In essence, God’s love has always been there, you just need to learn how to recognize it.
Reflect upon your relationships
According to the Bible, every man, woman, and child is created in the image of God. This means that in each person, you can see His character as well as His love. Although yes, some people can be awful and horrible (this is the fallen aspect of humanity), in the greater sense, human beings are filled with inherent goodness that reflect the enormous love of God. The amount and quality of relationships that you have with other people are a manifestation of how much God loves you. No matter who you are, someone in your life loves and cares for you – it may be your mother, father, sibling, friend, partner, and more. In the love of this person alone, you can see a microcosm of what God enormously feels for you. So, if you want to discover just how much God loves you, you might only need to reflect upon your relationships.
Ultimately, the love of God for you is indeed enormous. It is unconditional and eternal. Sometimes, however, you might find it difficult to realize how loved you are by God because you are too preoccupied and consumed by the noises and nuisances of the world. Nonetheless, there are things you can do to change this. The discussion on God’s gestures of love by Betsy Fritcha points out that God Himself is doing something to get your attention. He is providing you with the tools that you need and showering you with blessings and good relationships to help you realize just how much He loves you. Essentially, the only thing that you need to do now is to put in an extra effort to discover and realize that enormous and intense love.
