Daily Truth - The All Surpassing Love of God

I woke up this morning with these thoughts of truth. 

God’s love extends far, far beyond all human love.  God’s love truly knows no boundaries whatsoever and is never withdrawn.  While human love has limitations, God’s love does not. 

Whether we like to admit it or not, our human love and affection are conditional and sometimes too easily withdrawn when we face particular circumstances.  Depending on the behavior of a person, we may choose whether to love them or withhold love.  Some people’s behavior even leads us to feel utter hatred towards them.  Unfortunately, we are faced with the same conundrum in regards to our human love towards God.  When God is behaving the way we want Him to behave, we are able to easily love Him and extend our praise and affection toward Him.  But when God is not doing things the way we prefer or is seemingly not giving answer to our requests, we may choose to withdraw our love and affection from Him.

Disillusionment with God

Our general populace has arrived at a loss of faith and trust in God. 

Some people find it easier to believe there is some “higher power” but will not call it God.  Is that “higher power” luck, fortune, the stars, the planets, or the universe?  What exactly is it?  Why don't they call it God? 

Other people simply choose to believe there is nothing greater or more powerful than man.  Man is his own god—his own master and commander.  After all, life on this earth can be quite chaotic at times.  Why waste time believing in a God that doesn’t stop the “bad” things from happening? 

And there are those people who start out having a faith in God but find themselves at a crossroads where they question that faith or give it up altogether. 

Why this crisis of faith in God?
