God’s Love For Me
I want to share a very powerful truth with you today. As you receive it, you will be empowered for everything God has for your life!
First, let us understand just how much God loves you.
Remember the story of how God asked Abraham to give up Isaac, his only son, in Genesis 22? Abraham’s heart must have been broken when he led Isaac, his one and only promised son, up Mount Moriah to be sacrificed.
But in the end, Isaac did not have to die because God provided a substitute—a ram. That ram caught in the thicket was a picture of Jesus, God’s precious Son, the apple of His eye, who would one day be led up Mount Calvary to be crucified in our place for our sins.
God so loved His Son, but He so loved you too, that He willingly gave up His Son for you to die on the cross.
That, my friend, is how much God loves you! And it is this truth that will help you to break down the barriers in life, conquer every defeatist thought, and succeed in whatever you set your hands to!
The apostle Paul explains it like this in Ephesians 3:14-17, NKJV, “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man…”
I like how the NIV puts it, where the words “strengthened with might” are translated as “strengthened with power”. The power Paul is talking about is actually a power that comes as a result of having a revelation of something.
The scripture continues by saying God will strengthen you with power [or with might], “through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love…”
So Paul was praying for you to be rooted and grounded in God’s love, so that you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width, the length, the depth, the height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge—and be filled with ALL the fullness of God!
This means that when you are rooted and grounded in God’s love, you are truly strengthened with power, and have access to all that God is—wisdom, strength, peace, favor, health, provision…
Nothing can get you down—there is no insurmountable challenge, no unachievable dream—when you know that you are truly empowered by God’s love.
Even when the devil starts throwing lemons at you, you know that God will turn those lemons into refreshing lemonade for you!
Are you battling with sickness or depression? Are you faced with a financial lack? Are you handling a troubled relationship with your child, spouse or your boss?
I want to encourage you to saturate yourself with a fresh revelation of the love of God. It will cause you to have such a confidence of God’s goodness toward you, and trust that God has already provided His fullness for whatever lack you are facing.
In the midst of your challenges, instead of worrying and doubting if God is for you, you’ll live with such a strong, solid assurance in your heart, that if God did not withhold His one and only precious Son, He will not withhold anything good from you today! (Romans 8:32) Surely, He is more than willing to pour out His blessings into your finances, He is more than willing to grant you divine health, and He is more than willing to cause you to see favor in all your significant relationships.
Therefore, more than anything else that you are pursuing, pursue the love of God for you. In the intimate presence of the Lord, you’ll hear Him cheering you on to pursue the dream that He has placed in your heart.
What freedom that gives you! So live life conscious of how deeply loved you are by God. Truly, you are empowered by His vast and unconditional love!
Allow His perfect love to beam down upon you in all its warmth, radiance and beauty. No matter what may be happening around you, you are safe and secure in His unconditional love. Let His love be an anchor for your faith, and expect good things to happen to you.
Are you ready to receive the fullness of God’s love in your life?
This month, I want to encourage you to focus on God’s love for you. Meditate on and experience God’s love for you, and be empowered to defeat your giants and succeed in life!
Living in the fullness of God’s love,
See your heavenly Father’s deep and unconditional love for you every single day. Allow His perfect love to empower you to overcome every challenge in your life!
Thank You Jesus!
