All About His Love…

Standard

Do we really know or can we really fathom how much God loves us? I mean really, it is so difficult for me to get a handle on, but incredible when it comes down to it. I don’t even know how to explain it, but I do know that He says that He looks at me as his son, heir with him. That is amazing. You mean the God that formed a pile of dirt and then breathed into the breath of life, the guy really loves me far more than I could ever imagine. I wonderIJohnto myself why is that so hard to believe and comprehend? Is it the place each of us come from and the experiences that we have had with our earthly father? I feel like sometimes that is very true, we try to comprehend what we experience and know, however I have found it to be so much more than human love. Unconditional, something that we as humans are not capable of portraying, and love that say no matter what you do, think, or feel, His love is always the same. I too have experienced His love for me, he loves to talk and even comforts in dire times, but more than anything else it is the time to develop a personal relationship with Him, intimately. When you are at your lowest, when things look like they are really bad, you can turn to Him and He will answer, regardless. Do I deserve this, of course not, I do not accept this as something that I deserve, it is a gift. Here I am standing n the grace of God totally undeserved, but a child of God just the same. That true love and goodness from God.

One of the overwhelming thoughts that I have is how God would entrust me with the gifts the He gives to us. Really, one of the humanist humans I know… I mean really know…is given everything in God? Amazing and humbling thought!Quiet Place Sign Maybe I have answered my own question, but maybe that is why it is so difficult to get your arms around the love of God…

I have determined to get in the quiet place with God and commune with Him and have that intimate relationship with Him. What is really incredible though is that He is  just giddy with glee at the thought of Him and I talking, like a 13 year old boy with a new sweetheart, right at Valentines, anticipating love to see that person that makes their heart sing.

“As He is, so are you in this world”

Reading this is something that has become more real to me everyday… If I had to follow a ton of regulations and laws to get there, I would be the last one in the throng of people trying to attain! I has been a while since I last posted, a lot has happened, but one thing I know is that God is totally in love with me! I wish that words could express the love that I feel from Him all the time. When I say love, I mean unconditional, everlasting, precious, intimate love that He wants to show me everyday.

It is always said that we know that we trust God with our very being when things get tough, on the contrary, when things are bad we do not have a choice, we run to Him. When you step out and do something that you might consider a sin, do you trust His unconditional love at that point, or do you take the traditional christian approach and beat yourself up with condemning thoughts and accusations. Of course we know that the accuser is the devil himself and no one else, aided by your flesh to bring you into condemnation. Romans 8:1 “There is now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus” I believe, I mean it looks like it to me, that the word no there means no, really! That is the victory that overcomes everything, the freedom in Christ Jesus. What a thrilling and blessed thought that His unconditional love is genuine and works in all of us… We do not sit in condemnation or fear, we sit at the right hand of the Father with Jesus in power, strength, whole and righteous. I John 4:17 says that as He is, so are we in this world. Just look at how He is, full of glory, righteous and full of power, raised from the dead and endowed with everything His Father has. SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD! Enough of this religious faking it until it gets real! It is real!

He wants to have an intimate relationship with you more than anyone else in the world, and He paid the ultimate price to get it! Accept that, live in it, walk in it, and show the world what a God we have!!!
