Have you ever thought much about our love for God? I have and when I really leaned into it, I realized this…
I am wildly in love with God…so I know He is wildly in love with me…because I am incapable of loving Him without the love He gives me…to love Him with.
That blows my mind. Absolutely blows my mind.
Remember this verse?
We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
Every bit of love we have to give Him, is a reflection of the love He showers over us. He loves…so we love. What a glorious exchange.
This is one of the many reasons that I will never hold back my affection for Him. He is worthy of receiving it all…all my love.
When is the last time you were intentional with your love for God? When is the last time you sat in His presence simply out of love and affection?
Today is a wonderful day to set aside some time to just sit in your love. What a beautiful and peaceful thing this is to do. Sit in your love and just be with Him. He is worthy.
Then after sitting with Him…face the day as one who knows they’re loved.
I am madly and wildly in love with God. My heart bleeds love for Him. My mind swirls with passion for Him. My thoughts are always consumed with Him. My words are a constant flow of praise and adoration for Him. I love Him, not for what He’s done, but simply for Him. I am in love. Deeply in love.
All of that is a reflection of the love He has for me. It’s awe inspiring, humbling and honestly unreal…but it’s true. As my capacity to love Him grows, it is a direct reflection of my knowing and experiencing more and more of His love for me. I grow closer to Him…He reveals more of His heart to me, I fall deeper in love.
God is love.
I truly hope this devotional thought takes your breath away. I honestly pray that today you begin a journey into the deeper parts of His love for you.
Lord, release the knowledge of Your love over every person who reads this devotional. Let them have a true God encounter today. Establish them in Your love and move in their hearts to love You more. Thank You for being love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If I speak in tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13
