How do we know God loves us?
He loves us so very much. He not only sent his Son to die for us, but He left us with many bible verses to make it perfectly clear that He loves us and we are dear to His heart. What more could He do or give?
Regardless of our circumstances or how we may be feeling, we need to know that God does love us. It is constant. It is unchanging. It is eternal. May you be encouraged today as you read these verses from the Bible....and be reminded that God loves us!

2 For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD.
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.
13Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
