Knowing that God loves you is a process.

There is no reality in your life until it is reality from thinking or what is in the right lobe of the soul called the heart in the Bible.

This is the love which God has from His own perfect righteousness, from His perfect character, from His own perfect integrity, and from His own perfect virtue.

JOH 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you”

God’s love for us is based upon who God is not who we are.

MAL 3:6 “For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.”

ACT 2:23 this Man [Jesus Christ], was delivered up by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God,

His love for us was not based upon something we did or did not do;
EPH 1:3-4 tells us that!

EPH 1:3 Worthy of praise and glorification be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
EPH 1:4 just as He elected us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him.

EPH 3:20 – He is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us
