Yes, God Loves You

To read the Bible in a year, read Malachi.
God held a conversation with Israel through the prophet Malachi (Malachi 1:1). God began immediately to speak of His love for Israel, “‘I have loved you,’ says the LORD” (v. 2a). Yet, Israel did not believe Him (v. 2b). God reminded them that He had loved Jacob, but hated Esau (v. 2c, 3). God said that Esau (also known as Edom), may have looked as though he was prospering, yet, God would throw down their work (v. 4). In time, the Lord promised,
“Your eyes shall see,
And you shall say,
‘The LORD is magnified beyond the border of Israel.'”
(v. 5)
We want proof of God’s love now, but as a loving parent, God shows His love at the right time. If you love Him, can you wait patiently to see His love?
