The other day I was driving in my truck listening to the radio and the new hit song by Brett Young called “In Case You Didn’t Know” came on. The song revolves around a guy reminding the woman in his life that he loves her just in case she didn’t know that he did. He wants to make sure that she truly knows how he feels about her.
I was reminded that this is how God feels about us. He wanted to make sure we knew how much he truly loves us. So much so that He sent His only son to die for us. God loved us before we loved Him. His love is unconditional. And He wants to make sure we know that.
So why do we have to be reminded of God’s love for us? Because sometimes the circumstances and situations in our lives cause us to have short term amnesia. Our attention gets focused on what we are experiencing and we quickly forget all God has done, all He is doing, and what He is going to do. We look at how big our problems are and we lose sight of how big God’s love is for us.
So in case you didn’t know, nothing can separate you from God’s love (See Romans 8:38-39). In case you didn’t know, God doesn’t condemn you (See Romans 8:1). In case you didn’t know, you are a masterpiece (See Psalm 139:14 and Ephesians 2:10). In case you didn’t know, God’s love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on you (See Psalm 136 and Psalm 57:10).
