God has, does and will always:
LOVE YOU. Yes, God's love is eternal and unconditional. Although we are not capable in this life of always loving God perfectly every moment of every day, God loved us from the very beginning, loves us even now and will continue to love us for all eternity. I would say that constitutes the perfect love story of all time.
FORGIVE YOU. Yes, God's forgiveness is not dependent upon our confession of sin for God forgave us of all sin in Christ when He gave His life for us. For US to walk in fellowship with God we must be aware of our sin and confess it so that our minds are reconciled back to God. Wrapped up in our redemption in Christ Jesus is forgiveness of any and all sinÂ€Â”past, present and future.
BLESS YOU. Yes, God's blessings have already been given and now we must simply enjoy them and be thankful for them. God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in all of the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. In Christ we are as blessed as Mary was to have Â€ÂœChrist in herÂ€. We have Christ in us, the hope of glory and thus are eternally blessed.
KNOW YOU. Yes, God intimately knows everything there is about you. God knows your strengths and weaknesses. God knows your heart and your mind. God will never forget about you for you are engraved upon the very palms of His hands. God will always know your name, for He has called you by it. It truly is a comfort to know that God knows us, and that He always has and always will.
BE THERE FOR YOU. Yes, God will never leave you nor forsake you. God will not turn away from you in your hour of need. God is omnipresent and unlike other gods, He will not be off on a cruise when you need him most. God has always and will continue to be a very present safe haven, rock and fortress for you.
BE FAITHFUL TO HIS WORD. Yes, God honors His Word in all matters. If God has said something He means it. If God has promised something, He will perform it. If God has stated something He will bring it to pass. We can trust God and His Word for in all matters God is faithful. God is not a man that He should lie and thus He can be trusted with every fiber of our hearts.
ENLIGHTEN YOU. God is light and if we turn our eyes upon Him, He will enlighten our minds and show Himself to us the way He did to Moses. God wants us to know Him, believe in Him and trust Him. God knows that the more you know about Him the easier it will be to do this.
As we scurry about in this life, I pray that we never lose sight of these simple truths. God has, does and will always take care of us because of who He is and all He has done for us in Christ. We can fully trust God for He has proven to be trustworthy. We can bask in His light, walk in His blessings and come to Him with every need and desire in our hearts. We can do this because He loves us, unconditionally and with all of His heart.
What joy to know that while He might not always be pleased with my actions ... His love for me is not based on what I do, it is based on who I am!

[quote]What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it--we're called children of God! That's who we really are. But that's also why the world doesn't recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he's up to. 1 John 3:1 (MSG) [/quote]
