Lasso of Love

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” Jeremiah 31:3 King James Version

Yesterday morning while praying for the salvation of some very precious friends of mine before I got out of bed, I heard myself saying “Father, please put Your lasso of love around them and draw them into Your corral of protection.” I had never prayed like that before. Yet this is exactly what our loving Heavenly Father does for us; He puts His lasso of love around us and draws us close to His tender heart of compassion, mercy and grace and draws us into His corral of protection.

Our Scripture verse tells us that He loves us with an everlasting love. His love is everlasting. He will never stop loving us. What an encouragement that is to know that He will love us forever! It is especially encouraging to those of us who have dedicated our lives to Him in full time service because satan attacks us so often and so viciously. Let me repeat this again because it needs to go from our intellect into our hearts. He will never stop loving us.

O what a precious promise He has given to us from His loving heart of compassion and understanding. Do you understand yet? He loves you unconditionally and He will always love you. However, I think that it is extremely important and urgent that we search our hearts and see how much we love Him. Do we love Him unconditionally as He loves us or do we only love Him when He answers our prayers the way we think they should be answered? If we only love Him because of what He does for us, may God forgive us!
