Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. On this day, many of us look to other people for love. But people can never love us perfectly. God’s love is the perfect love. So this is a great time to remind ourselves of just how much He loves us.
In the last post, we began talking about God’s love for us. Sometimes this can be really hard for us to understand. We might say that we know He loves us. But believing it deep in our core is another story. Getting into the Bible and praying scriptures about God’s love can help you unleash a new power in your life. Here are some more of those Biblical prayers about God’s love.
