But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8
The greatest motivation to change is love. We need to know how deeply God loves us, because then we’ll be able to take small steps of change without fear of failure.
God loves you so much that he sent his Son to die for you. That’s not just a nice notion; it’s a truth you can bank on. He sacrificed what was most dear to him to express his undying love for you. If he’s done that, won’t he also come through for you again when you need help? Yes, he will
There will never be a moment in this life when God is not paying attention to you.
The psalmist recognized this about God, “If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast” (Psalm 139:9-10).
God is guiding you, holding your hand as you take steps to improve your health. No matter what each day holds, reflect on the profound truth that Christ died for you, and God’s presence is near you.
