Charles Stanley (October-01-2020) Daily Devotion: Trusting God’s Love for Us

When facing painful trials, we may be tempted to doubt God’s love for us—especially if we think peace and happiness are proof His love and trouble is not. In today’s passage, Paul helps us see God’s purpose for difficulties in the believer’s life. Tribulations are meant to produce perseverance, proven character, and hope because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts.

Instead of yielding to doubts, let the following truths about God’s trustworthy love give you hope. His love is ...

  • Perfect. He always does what is best for us in order to accomplish His goal of transforming us into the image of His Son.
  • Dependable. First John 4:8 tells us that love is an integral part of God’s nature. It would go against His character not to love His people, and He never contradicts His own being. 
  • Consistent. God works all events in His children’s lives—even the hardest circumstances—for their good. Scripture teaches us to regard hardships as the act of a good heavenly Father who loves us (Heb. 12:6).

 If you’re ever in doubt, remember that God orchestrated the greatest demonstration of love possible—His Son’s death on the cross.
