Love of God

The past few days I was really just overwhelmed with God’s love. I cannot contain it any longer and I know God did not intend His love to be contained, His love is to be shared so here we go.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

God although the world does not know Him loved the world. He delights in His creations, He delights in His people and He cannot bear eternity without them, without US. Yes, He is our Creator but He doesn’t want our relationship with Him to end there, HE LONGS TO BE OUR FATHER. And because of the sacrifice Jesus did, He is.

God wants to be with us forever but with our sins it is impossible for us to spend eternity with God. Yet, God in His great love made a way to give us eternal life. He came. 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made Him who had no sin be sin for us, so that we may become the righteousness of God.

Love is the reason Jesus came, Love is the reason He suffered, Love is the reason He died, and LOVE IS THE REASON HE OVERCAME.

1 John 3:1a See what great love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Crazy, isn’t it? JESUS CHRIST the only begotten Son died because of love. He took the full cup of the wrath of God so that we may be called Children of God. We are made right with the Father because of the love of Christ.

God’s love is greater than anything we can imagine. His love is the perfect love and amazingly it is freely given to us; because of that there is no power that can separate us from God.

Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 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.

1 John 4:17 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

Amazing. I don’t even have words to say anymore.

 

O Heavenly Father,

Thank You. Thank You for the love that is beyond limits. Thank You for even though You knew me perfectly in my sins You loved and cared for me. I am in awe and just blown away with Your great love. Thank You for loving me, for giving me the life I am not worthy to live. Thank You my God for calling me Your daughter. Forever will I worship You. In Jesus’ glorious name. Amen

No worries.

Matthew 6: 25-26 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds in the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Once there was this girl who believes in God. She really believes in Him, she prays and talks to Him, she does things she thought would please Him. She’s alright she says, as long as she believes in God she’s okay. But she doesn’t understand the amazing power of the love of God, she didn’t understand that knowing God includes knowing that He has a plan for her, a very good one. So the girl worried, she worried a lot, she said she believes God but then she’s always nervous that things will go wrong, that things wouldn’t go the way she wanted it to be. She said Jesus is her Lord and Savior, but when she worries like that she was taking Christ out as the Master of her life.

It really is sad it has to happen to her. She sees herself as a pretty good Christian… until she had a fresh encounter with her Master.  She saw the face of Jesus and His grace made her understand: God is sovereign and He understands what she’s going through. She finally saw that faith is not just knowing, faith is trusting that God has the best plans and He will go through everything with her. Yes, things don’t go the way she wanted it to happen but as soon as she fixed her eyes on the cross the peace of God overwhelmed her very being. She started crying, she realized how foolish she was relying more on herself when her Heavenly Father is already with her and is more than willing to comfort her. She surrendered, He took charge and though things don’t always seem so clear to her and pain still exists… His embrace assures her that He’s got it all under control and that even in the midst of trials she can have joy knowing God is with her and is for her.

Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

To my ever faithful Lover,

Day by day. That is how You work in me, in my life. You are never in a rush, I figured there is no need for time is in Your hands. You know when things are going to happen, You set them perfectly in Your plans and You carry them out completely. You make things happen, You make them happen beautifully. Maybe the word “miracle” sounds so beautiful because the only one who can make it happen is the One most beautiful. Your miracles, nothing can compare. Your miracles, it isn’t just real, it’s amazing on the outside and is much more beautiful from within. Thank You. Thank You for giving me the privilege to witness and experience Your miracles. Thank You because You worked the greatest miracle of my life. You did not magically reformed me, You miraculously transformed me. I am no longer dead, You renewed me, You saved me from the darkness I’ve been living. You made me know You, You made Your love known to me, that was beyond amazing and that alone was a wonderful miracle. My salvation; all gratitude, all praises, all the glory belongs to You. You are most beautiful. You filled me up with life, with love, with joy and peace. You alone are everything and You are the only One worth saying this line to: “You complete me”.
