Valentines & Love

Happy Valentine’s Day (soon)! I want to let you know that you are on someone’s mind right now. Do you know whose? If you said God’s mind, you would be right! I know this because the Bible says it’s so! And the Bible is God’s word to us and so, BOOM, I know it’s true! Take a look for yourself!

A Moment To Praise For Kids 2.9.21 in Scripture

Jeremiah 29:11


Jeremiah 29:11 WEB – For I know the thoughts that I think – Bible Gateway

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yahweh, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.

God says He knows the plans that He has laid out for your life, and they are good plans. They are plans to give you success, and a life lived joyfully with Him! That’s the greatest thought ever. Thinking that God, the “Big Guy”, the One who has so much to do in this entire universe, is thinking about you and me…right at this very second! How unbelievably amazing and comforting that truly is!

I know that He loves us so deeply, because when you care for and love something or someone, you think about them all the time. Jeremiah 29:11 says that God is thinking about us right now.

Along with that thought, I have a question that relates. Do you know what the best verse in the Bible about God’s love for us is? It’s this one:

John 3:16 ICB – “For God loved the world so much that – Bible Gateway

16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son. God gave his Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life. Read full chapter

We have the assurance from the Bible that God is thinking about us all the time, and the reason He is doing that is because He loves us so much and wants good for us. So much so that Jesus, His Son, died on the cross for our sins. His love saved and continues to save us all!
