Charles Stanley (March-01-2020) Daily Devotionals: God’s Love for Us

If you knew every thought people had about you—or if they knew your thoughts about them—how long would those relationships last? Thankfully, God isn’t limited in this way, even though He knows everything about us, not just our thoughts (Psalm 139:4). He hears each word and sees our most private actions. And though He alone knows the full extent of our brokenness, His love for us persists like an unquenchable fire.

Acknowledging our brokenness before God changes the way we think about our own sin—and His love for us in spite of it. It causes us to grieve, not only for ourselves but also for the sins of the world. Yet we should remember Jesus didn’t just mourn sin; He conquered it. And He invites us to pursue something more than this world can offer: the greatest love of all.

THINK ABOUT IT
• Consider how the Beatitudes connect to each other. In what way is poverty of spirit—opening ourselves up to God— part of acknowledging and grieving our brokenness?

• Have you experienced comfort in grief or during a difficult situation? Think about how you felt in those moments. As you pray this week, reflect on the kind of comfort God promises— both in the present and when He returns.

    Have I asked God to let me minds. I have always wanted to know what people are thinking about me. But that has not happened. Yes it would make me NOT associate with some people and others yes. He is the only one who knows everything about me and loves me.
