OUR Daily Bread Devotional may 2, 2018 —Longing for God

Topic:Longing for God
May 2, 2018

Read: 1 John 4:13–16 | Bible in a Year: 1 Kings 12–13; Luke 22:1–2
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2

Our Daily Bread Faith

One day my daughter was visiting with our one-year-old grandson. I was getting ready to leave the house on an errand, but as soon as I walked out of the room my grandson began to cry. It happened twice, and each time I went back and spent a moment with him. As I headed out the door the third time, his little lip began to quiver again. At that point my daughter said, “Dad, why don’t you just take him with you?”

Any grandparent could tell you what happened next. My grandson went along for the ride, just because I love him.

How good it is to know that the longings of our hearts for God are also met with love. The Bible assures us that we can “know and rely on the love God has for us” (1 John 4:16). God doesn’t love us because of anything we have or haven’t done. His love isn’t based on our worthiness at all, but on His goodness and faithfulness. When the world around us is unloving and unkind, we can rely on God’s unchanging love as our source of hope and peace.

God longs for us to long for Him.
