Many of us grow up with a sense that while God might love the world, His love for us individually is distant; or that perhaps he loves us, but He really might not like us all that much; or that His love is fragile and His affection shines on us only when we have somehow earned it. We understand the concepts of grace and forgiveness, of God’s love and sacrifice, but feeling them in the depths of our soul, is another story. After all, we know where we’ve been, what we’ve done and said, and all that has been said and done to us. Thankfully, that’s not the sum total of what defines us or God’s love toward us! God calls us “the apple of His eye” (Zechariah 2:8). You might be wondering what apples and eyes have to do with one another. The phrase means to be held so close to someone that you can see your own reflection in their eyes. God wants to be so intimate with you, to hold you so close that you can see your image reflected in His eyes. When you look into God’s eyes to see your reflection you have a whole new perspective! You are loved, delighted in and sung over by the Creator of the Universe (Zephaniah 3:17). You are a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord (Isaiah 62:3). You are a child of the King of Kings (Romans 8:15). You are a conqueror destined for victory (Romans 8:37). There is nothing that can happen to you or anything that you can ever do that will change His indescribable love (Romans 8:38-39). Come along for this seven week trek through God’s Word and experience His love in a fresh new way. Let His love wash over the bumps and bruises in your life and let your reflection in His eyes set you free from the hurts and disappointments that have defined you.
