My 5 Favorite Scriptures About God’s Love

Do you ever have days when it feels like everything is going wrong? Have you ever had days when it seems like everyone is upset with you or something you did?

I’ve had both types of days and I’m sure most of you have, too. But on those days, something that always helps me feel better is reading some of my favorite verses about God’s love – this can help when you feel lonely or depressed, too!

Here are my favorite verses about the love that our Father in heaven has for us!

  • “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, not things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:37-39). This helps me remember that nothing I go through and none of my emotions can separate me from God’s love for me.
  • “The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy” (Zephaniah 3:17). This always reminds me that God enjoys being with me.
  • “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6-7). I actually prayed this verse as a prayer when one of my cats (Nala) was really sick and needed surgery.
  • “See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him” (1 John 3:1). This verse reminds me who God says that I am.
  • “’For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope’” (Jeremiah 29:11). I don’t know about you, but if I think about the future too much, I get anxious. This helps me remember that God has my future under control.

Whether you are feeling loved or not, sometimes it’s just important to remember that we are loved by the Creator of the universe, God Almighty, our Abba Father.

What is your favorite Scripture about God’s love?

Give thanks to the God of heaven, for His lovingkindness is everlasting (Psalm 136:26).

    God is so merciful and loving! I am so glad that He cares for me and when I wander away, He WANTS ME TO COME BACK He loves me and I don’t want to break His heart anymore, because God keeps His promises and so we should keep our promise not to sin. Of course we mess up and sin! But that shouldn’t be in the way of Gods unwavering love for us!! Thank you for this wonderful article it helped me feel better!

    another thing that helps me remember how great God’s love is is looking at 2 different places in scripture:
    “God is Love” and then the love chapter (1 corinthians 13), ya know, loveis patient, love is kind, it doesnt envy, it doesnt boast, it isnt proud or rude, it keeps no record of wrongs, it always hopes, always trusts, always endures, and more (sorry i dont remember it exactly)
    just replace love in that chapter with God because God is love, and that’s how he is with us- patient, kind, everlasting, no record of wrongs, etc

    My favorite verse about God’s Love is a very familliar passage of scripture:

    (John 3:16 “For God so LOVED the world that he gave his ONLY begotten son,that whosoever believeth on him shall not perish but have EVERLASTING LIFE!

    I know God has control of our future , But right now it seems like I’m going nowhere . I’ve been praying for the longest that I’ll get a job , Not only to get everything I need for school next month , But to help my mom with the bills … Worrying about this makes me worry about everything else since I do plan out everything and think of how I wish it would go .. I’ve put all my faith in Him , Its just that I’m so impatient and scared ..

      my favorite verse about not worrying is in Phillipians 4. it says something like ‘do not worry or be anxious about anything BUT INSTEAD through prayer and petition present your concerns to God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.’

      *I read this on the JCLU website and i hope it encourages you <3
      *“Rest in the Lord & wait patiently for him” (Psa 37:7). “…and having done all, stand.” (Eph 6) Worrying can’t change the situation anyway. As the saying goes: “Let go and let God.” Trust in His infinite wisdom, that he has everything under control. Even a sparrow doesn’t fall to the ground without his notice, Jesus said. The very hairs of your head are numbered.

    Amazing! And @Hlaluvzjesus I think about that so many times, and I question God about it quite often. Sometimes we need to know that we aren’t skilled to understand what God does, but most of all his understanding is WAY beyond ours. If you want, be bold to him and simply be specific what you need and help in, that’s all it is. He’s listening, but have a time of silece and quiet your thoughts and think of him. I hope everything works out♥

    If He has control over the future then why do bad things happen and some people even die before their purpose because this happens a lot. And aborted babies die before they are given the chance of life. And I try talking to Him but He never gives me stress relief. I don’t even feel like He is listening or cares. I really need help, that’s all .

      @hlaluvjesus: It’s difficult to find light in the pit of darkness, but God is always there. You have to call out to Him and never give up. He answers when the time is right, but you have to be ready and willing to hear Him. Nobody knows why bad things happen, but God gave us free will to behave in any way we desire. Just remember though, that when someone dies or a baby is aborted, feel comforted in the truth that they have found peace finally in the arms of the Lord. There is no real justice on earth, but there is in Heaven and hell. God always makes things right. God bless you and please don’t give up on Him. He loves you so much.

      God takes bad thing and brings good things out of them. If someone dies before their purpose God uses it to influence the people around them in a positive way. God doesn’t make bad things happen. They just happen as a result of sin in the world, and He makes good things out of them. “In all things God works for the good of those who love Him. Who have been called according to His purpose.” God loves you and cares about you. He is always listening. He is always there even if you don’t feel Him. Try reading the Bible (I know it seems boring). A good place to go is one of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) or Ephesians. Maybe you can find God’s peace there. I hope this helps you. 🙂
