The love of God is deep. His love is wide. His love is high and it is long. God’s love is not far-fetched or something that you cannot totally wrap your heart around. It is not incomprehensible or unable to be fully received. Rather, it is something that God intended for us to comprehend, to eagerly take, to seize, and possess as our very own. We receive it into our lives, so that we can freely give it away. If you’re not full of the knowledge that God loves you, you won’t have anything to pour out into others. If you only believe God loves you when you perform well, and only when you live right, you won’t have anything to pour out on those who aren’t performing well or those who aren’t living right. What you receive for yourself is what you will ultimately give away. In a world that struggles with the idea of a loving God, amid all of the destruction and evil, you must have a firm understanding of God’s love. You must be rooted and grounded in it, so that you can effectively share His love with others.
“I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19 (MSG)
Thank You for the amazing love that You have for me. You love me when I’ve done everything right and even when I make a mistake. You still love me. I receive Your love and I pray that You position me to share it with those around me that need it most. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
A sincere thank you to our Daughters of the King Daily Devotional Writers.
