Romans 8:31 NIV - "What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
Conditional love is cruel. But it is something that many people chase after. Striving for acceptance will leave you burnt out and emotionally flat. It's a never ending pursuit that wearies the soul.
The heavenly Father gives you something different. He says, "I am for you. I am on your side. I know you completely, and I love you completely. I am not against you." This is unconditional love.
Your Father continues, "If I already gave you my best - my one and only Son - as your sacrifice, why would I hold back from you now? Why would I suddenly start making you earn my love?"
Trust your Father that all his motives toward you are love. All of his work in your life is for your best. He never works against you. The Father is trustworthy in his consistent display of love.
Pray: Father, I believe that you are for me. Thank you for your unconditional love. I will not strive for your acceptance, but I will claim it and give it those around me. I trust you, Father. In Jesus' name, Amen.
