I know that I have posted a lot these last few days, but then again there has been a lot going on as well… This is something that is a personnal struggle and a realization that God has brought to me through about four or five different things that have happened these last few days. I realize that I must know how much God loves me before the power of God can be manifest in my life. What I mean is really know, understand and KNOW how much He loves me.
He loves me so much He put me before the feelings and life of His own Son! He loves me so much that He made Himself sin so that I could have redemption! He loves me so much that He made me the righteousness of God, forgiven and placed at the right hand of the Father! These are not mere words, as I had come to believe, this is reality and my belief in those words does not make them the truth, they are truth regardless of whether I believe them or not! HE LOVES ME FAR BEYOND ANYTHING I KNOW! The perfect Lamb of God became sin for me, forgiving once and for all the sins of mankind, including me! Jecus Christ on the cross looked down through the anals of time and saw me in need of His sacrifice and embraced with love the moment that I would allow Him to love me!!
Only then can I know the power of God in my life, without love, as I Cor 13 states, there is nothing. Without His love there is no power, no meaning. Herein is love not that we loved God, but that He loved us and gave Himself for us! He has made a way for me to be righteous before the everlasting God! What a thought, what a God, what a love!
I will allow God to love me the best way that He knows how, that has got to be good! After all He has perfect love, Praise you Father, thank you Father for the love you have for me! I want to bask , float, soak up and revel in the love that the Father has poured out on me, realize it, enjoy it and swim in it! Do you really know how much God loves you? Not in your head, not something that you have heard in church, but really know and understand how much the really loves you? Really? When I started this blog I had part of the title, “the prusuit of an intimate relationship with God” that was soon changed to His relentless prusuit of an intimitate relationship with us! He wants with all the passion and love He has to have an intimate relationship with us and show us how much He loves us! Drop the actions, drop the spirituality, drop religion and get to the real core of knowing and understanding how much He loves you! I am as I told Him this morning, allowing Him to love me to the fullest, knowing that is what He wants to do and is delighted to do! Incredible!!
Ask Him to show you how much He loves you, He would lover to show you more than you want to know!!
I am not really a fan of Celine Deon, but this song reflects how God loves us! Loving us back to life!
