“I sought the Lord, and He heard me.” Psalm 34:4. God created us in His image to have emotions, so the longing to feel loved is legitimate and good. One way that many of us sense we’re loved is when someone talks with us and listens to us. God provides those needs in our relationship with Him too. He speaks through His Word to our heart (Heb. 4:12), and He wants us to pour out our heart to Him about everything (Ps. 62:8) – even our longing to feel His love. Besides a relationship with Him, He daily gives us our breath, clothing, food, and shelter. Now, we walk by faith. One day, we will experience His very presence! Knowing that God loves us comes by faith; feeling His love for us comes by relationship.
