(Daniel 10:11 NKJV) “And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” While he was speaking this word to me, I stood trembling.”
Our position, like that of Daniel, is a “man greatly beloved.” What a position! To hear from our Lord that He loves us to such an infinite degree. I am thankful that Spurgeon wrote on such a subject for this evening. It is a wonderful feeling to feel great love from a spouse, or your children, or a friend. But to see perfect love, in a Savior who would even lay down His life for us through the shedding of His blood brings an uncontested understanding of what it is to be “greatly beloved.”
As Spurgeon lists several reasons for us to be in awe of Christ’s love for us, I pray each one of us would behold such love, and the extent of His love, and love Him back with the greatest love possible for Man. We love Him because He first loved us!
As the devotion closes: “Meditate on the exceeding greatness and faithfulness of divine love this evening, and so go to thy bed in peace.”
Think on His love for you and the exceeding greatness and faithfulness of such love. You will be able to go to bed as secure and overflowing with peace as has ever been experienced this side of heaven. What a joy it is to be loved by God!
