God’s love is available for you and me: He wants us, cares about us and loves us unconditionally!
Bible verses about God and His love
Faith works through love. That is why it is so vitally important to know that you are loved and accepted by God and that he wants to answer your prayers.
When people fall in love it is difficult to think of anything but the object of their love. Prayer involves this type of love for God. Hope Macdonald explains, “I like to think of prayer as a conversation between two friends who love and understand each other. ”Prayer requires trust. You cannot produce trust. Trust comes out of a relationship in which you know you are loved.
If we had a full revelation of God’s love for us, it would put our fears to rest and draw us into a greater desire to trust him.
Let’s look at some Bible verses about God and love.
Jesus said, “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me” (John 17:3).
Song of Solomon, “Many waters cannot quench the flame of love, neither can the floods drown it” (1 John 3:1 TLB).
Our aim in these sessions is to help you find real freedom through a child-like faith. You can completely trust in God’s love and acceptance and have the assurance that he wants to answer your prayers.
