The topic of God's love is a little hard to explain and impossible to measure. If we could measure God's Love to us like we measure any physical quantity , we could measure God Himself. Why?. Because God is Love. Sometimes, His love towards us is also hard to understand, sometimes we doubt if He ever loves us when Life goes through its dark times. This was the every day experience of God's people Israel. Now, as we are all joined to the New Israel of the New Testament we are all experiencing what that special Nation went through for centuries. By the way, Israel means "One who struggled with God". As we are the new Israel, we will also have to struggle with God like Jacob (the original Israel) did.. Sometimes circumstances in Life makes us think twice if God is still in control. But, the simple fact is that He always His. He lets some bad things happen to us once in a while either to make us stronger in faith or to get our attention,.. If you are away from God you can be almost sure of the fact that God will discipline you to bring you back to Him. Look at these words from Hosea which prove my point. Read it over and over agian and be sure of the fact that God loves you.

She has not acknowledged that I was the one
who gave her the grain, the new wine and oil,
who lavished on her the silver and gold—
which they used for Baal.

9 "Therefore I will take away my grain when it ripens,
and my new wine when it is ready.
I will take back my wool and my linen,
intended to cover her nakedness.

10 So now I will expose her lewdness
before the eyes of her lovers;
no one will take her out of my hands.

11 I will stop all her celebrations:
her yearly festivals, her New Moons,
her Sabbath days—all her appointed feasts.

12 I will ruin her vines and her fig trees,
which she said were her pay from her lovers;
I will make them a thicket,
and wild animals will devour them.

13 I will punish her for the days
she burned incense to the Baals;
she decked herself with rings and jewelry,
and went after her lovers,
but me she forgot,"
declares the LORD.

14 "Therefore I am now going to allure her;
I will lead her into the desert
and speak tenderly to her.

15 There I will give her back her vineyards,
and will make the Valley of Achor a]">[a] a door of hope.
There she will sing b]">[b] as in the days of her youth,
as in the day she came up out of Egypt.

16 "In that day," declares the LORD,
"you will call me 'my husband';
you will no longer call me 'my master. c]">[c]

Look at the transition between the verses 13 and 14... From verses 8 to 13 God is speaking about what He will do to bring Him back and from verse 14 onwards He is speaking about the love that was lost being found again.
