This Valentine’s Day, know that someone loves you.  No matter who you are, where you are, or what you’ve done, there’s someone right now who loves you with an infinite and incomprehensible love.  This is the same someone who put the stars in the sky, placed the sun in its orbit, and breathed life into the dust of the earth.  The same God and Creator of the Universe loves you with a love deeper than the ocean, higher than the heavens, and wider than the east is from the west.  Don’t believe me?  Take a look at what the Bible says.

A Love that Surpasses Knowledge

The Lord’s love for his people is evidenced many times in the Bible and it doesn’t just apply to King David and Moses, it applies to you too.

“We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.” 1 John 4:16

“Know therefore that Yahweh your God himself is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and loving kindness with them who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations,” Deuteronomy 7:9

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

“By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us.” 1 John 3:16

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth, and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19

His Love for You

Still need proof that this applies to you?  Let’s read a few more passages.

“For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn’t hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my body. In your book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:13-16

“But God commends his own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

“For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from God’s love, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

“We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.” 1 John 4:16

Dear Lord, in the times we feel unloved,

Remind us of Your love from above

That surpasses the knowledge and limits of earth,

That loves us boundlessly from birth.

“Yahweh, your God, is among you, a mighty one who will save.  He will rejoice over you with joy.  He will calm you in his love.  He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
