I have boundless, unconstitutional love for you. How it grieves Me to see My children working for Love: trying harder and harder, yet never feeling good enough to be loved.")
What a difference it makes to know that God loves us not because we are good and always get it right, but because He is Good and He is the only thing right about us when we get right down to it. When we are constantly trying to measure the truth by our erratic experience we are left bewildered and uncertain. When we learn to measure our experience in the light of the truth of who we are in Christ our erratic emotional experience will change automatically. The truth is God is pleased when we allow ourselves, in spite of experience, to be loved in Christ :-) When we inter life's difficulties knowing we are already loved and accepted by the father then the pressure to perform is off and the guilt and condemnation of our shortcomings hold no more power over us. These things can no longer cast us in a negative light, and the results are far better than the shame and guilt that once held us iron clad to the darkness that once consumed our lives.
It is said that Abraham was not week in faith because he considered not his body and was strong in faith glorifying God because of it. This shows that week faith will always bend it's knee to physical evidence to to contrary, but strong faith, the kind that brings glory to God, is not controlled by counter physical forces that are always subject to spiritual law! The top spiritual law is the law of life in Christ, this law trumps and exceeds all other laws spiritual and physical :-)
