It is true. God has a crazy love for you! Look what He says to His people:
Zechariah 2:8b: …whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye. (NIV)
It reminds me of a story I heard about a little girl sitting on her daddy’s lap. She suddenly said, “Daddy, I know what you’re thinking about right now.”
“You do?” her dad asked. “Then tell me.”
She answered, “You’re thinking of me!”
“That’s exactly right,” he exclaimed. “How did you know that?”
“Easy,” the little girl said. “I can see me in your eyes.”
She could see the reflection of her face as she looked into her daddy’s eyes.
That is the way it is with you too. God says that His children are the “apple of his eye.” This is a term that means that you are His most prized and precious possession. You might say, “Me? No way.” I know it sounds crazy, but it is true. He loves you more than you can ever imagine. See it here in the Bible:
1 John 4:9: God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. (NLT)
And here again, see how God fills us with love the more we trust in Him:
1 Timothy 1:14: Oh, how generous and gracious our Lord was! He filled me with the faith and love that come from Christ Jesus. (NLT)
God is not angry and against you. He has a crazy love for you and He has made a way through His son Jesus to show you His great love. You are His creation and He wants to adopt you as His child. So trust in God through His son Jesus. Go to your loving heavenly Father and tell Him how you feel and what you need. He will meet you and bless you incredibly because He has great love for you.
Galatians 4:6-7: 6 Since you are God’s children, God sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, and the Spirit cries out, “Father.” 7 So now you are not a slave; you are God’s child, and God will give you the blessing he promised, because you are his child. (NCV)
