“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him” 1 John 4:16, NKJV.
God’s love is from everlasting to everlasting. When we believe and take a step of faith into the unsearchable arms of the Father, His door opens and never closes again. His love embraces us and reveals to us a completeness that cannot be explained.
My perception of love in the past was based on either people, places, things, or it was conditional for the most part. However, when we step into this Love, we find forgiveness. We find that this Love gives us beauty for ashes. This Love will fight your battles. This Love never fails you. This Love takes you in and lifts you up. This Love gives you a joy that no one can give you. This Love breaks every chain the world will ever have on you. This Love makes you free like nothing you have ever known. This Love casts out all fear and strengthens you never to give up no matter what you are facing. This Love teaches you to love yourself and others. This Love makes you confident and secure, humble and most grateful for all things. We all need more of this Love.
I encourage you today to just call on the Lord and receive this Love, and more of it. May God’s Love overtake you so that you will never be the same.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for being true love, the love I have never known. I’m speechless when in the midst of your perfect love. Pour out Your love on me like never before today. I want to experience You to the fullest and be able to share this Love with everyone you bring my way. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.
