With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, may our love be founded and grounded in the goodness and grace of God. From this place, and this place alone, we have much to give and offer. A. W. Tozer captures God’s love in this short prayer that is best read slowly, and with great care.
I am sure that there is in me nothing that could attract the love of One as holy and as just as You are. Yet You have declared Your unchanging love for me in Christ Jesus. If nothing in me can win Your love, nothing in the universe can prevent You from loving me. Your love is uncaused and undeserved. You are Yourself the reason for the love wherewith I am loved. Help me to believe the intensity, the eternity of this love that has found me. Then love will cast out fear; and my troubled heart will be at peace, trusting not in what I am but in what You have declared Yourself to be.
