Is there anything better than knowing you are truly loved?
As believers, we are not just loved by anyone, however. We know we are loved by God Himself.
“In love,” Paul says, “He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ.” (Eph.1:4b.)
To feel the force of that you might even say out loud, “I am loved by God from before the beginning of the universe.”
You can find other ways to say it as well, which might draw out the shock of it even more.
“The One who created everything I see has a deep affection for me.”
“The most important and powerful and good and wise and beautiful Being who has ever existed or who ever will exist, cares intensely for me.”
How do I know?

“He proved it to me by giving me absolutely every spiritual good that He could give.”
“He chose me.”
“He is changing me.”
“He made me His child.”
“He united me to His Son.”
