Love

God’s love is what I like writing about the most. The Lord’s love for me and for everyone else is just breathtaking. His love is what drew me to Him. His definition of love is what caused me to surrender my heart and to change my ways. He came into my life and turned it upside down for the better. Before Him I didn’t understand love. I saw it as something that was reserved for the chosen few. I had seen the world’s version of love and I had experienced it but it wasn’t satisfying. It was confusing, restrictive and empty at times. It gave so it could receive. It had intentions that were not always the best. I did see glimpses of God’s love in many people before I knew Christ. I now understand that it was God’s way of showing me that He cared before I knew Him. God loves every single one of us and when we lose sight of the amplitude of His love, we lose sight of who God is. God is not a political party or a religion that thrives on punishment and guilt. God is love. Period.

If you haven’t encountered God’s love, my prayer for you is that you get to know it. His love will transform your life. Love is His motivation and His intention for you. Keep that in mind. He does everything with love. His denials which are really redirections are all out of love. His mercy is because of love. His grace is laced in love. His every move and His every word are anchored in love. His Word is the Word of Love. Some people see the Bible as a love letter. Think of it as a love letter to you penned by Jesus and about Jesus. Read the Bible through the lens of love. When you do, you will interpret the Word in a positive way and you will agree that love is what matters most. Love is the most powerful force in the world and it can heal all wounds. Apply God’s love to your life and you will heal, you will grow, you will be restored and you will succeed. Everything you do should be backed by God’s love. Every thought you entertain and maintain should be impacted by God’s love. Reject negative thoughts and keep thoughts of love and positivity.

Saying that God’s love healed my life is an understatement. His healing is still taking place and it is an amazing phenomenon. God’s love puts everything back in order. It takes chaos and replaces it with God’s peace and blessings. God’s love is the biggest blessing there is and it is for all of us. There is an incredibly powerful love for you and it is waiting for you. In case you haven’t had a chance to get acquainted with God’s love, I invite you to invite it into your life today. Pray for His love. Pray that you are visited by His love every day. God wants to demonstrate His love all the time. I found that when I humbled myself and I became open to letting God be God, I discovered a love that is unparalleled. My heart had been crying for freedom for a while but I was too stubborn to let the Lord in. I wanted to do things my way instead of giving God control. Humbling myself implied getting into the Word and following the Word. It also meant that I was willing to be touched by something that was humanly impossible. I stretched my faith and He expanded my heart.

Love is what God feels for you. He doesn’t feel resentment and hate towards you. He speaks about you highly and He adores your company. Learn to see the love that God has for you. When you pray, you can sense His love. Let Him shower you with peace through His love. Love gives peace because it is protective and it cares. 1 Corinthians chapter 13, the love chapter, is often presented as the chapter that tells us how to walk in love. We shouldn’t forget that it also addresses what God’s love is like. What His love toward us is like. Read that chapter with God’s love for you in mind. Remember that God’s love is indestructible and it will always prevail. If you have nothing but God’s love, you have everything you need. Stay comforted by His love. Embrace His love and walk with Him hand in hand. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
