I read about a man who had a weather vane on his barn that said “God is love.” When asked why it said that, he told them that it was a reminder to him. “No matter which way the wind blows, God is love.” How simple, but how profound – and how true! No matter what “weather” comes our way – God is love. God is faithful. God is sufficient. God is with us. God is good. God is working in our lives to accomplish His plans and purposes. Whatever way the wind blows in our lives – God is there with whatever we need. And He’s still working miracles!

Rick Warren

He gave us taste buds, then filled the world with incredible flavors like chocolate and cinnamon and all the other spices. He gave us eyes to perceive color and then filled the world with a rainbow of shades. He gave us sensitive ears and then filled the world with rhythms and music. Your capacity for enjoyment is evidence of God’s love for you. He could have made the world tasteless, colorless, and silent. The Bible says that God “richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.” He didn’t have to do it, but he did, because He loves us.

Josh McDowell

God’s love manifest through the sunrise and sunset, the mountain and the valley, the tree and the flower, the roar of the beast and the song of the bird. Through your heartbeat and your breathing, in His care for you and His supply of your needs, in taking care of you and watching over you. The Bible clearly declares His love when He says: ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love.’

God knows you. He knows what makes you act and think and be the person that you are. He loves all of you. He doesn’t need you to love Him because that’s the right thing to do. He wants to love you so well that you find Him irresistible and want to be with Him all the time. And when His love penetrates the deep deep hurts inside you, you can’t help but fall in love with Him over and over again. He is love.

God so loves the world. The prevalence of evil doesn’t throw him into a paroxysm of anger but into an act of love. The power of evil doesn’t send him reeling into a fearful retreat but into an aggressive encounter in which love wins. God loves the world. Our reactions to the world are no help in understanding God’s responses. His response, though, is the greatest help in changing ours.
