Joyce Meyer – Love, Trust and Faith

For [if we are] in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love.

— Galatians 5:6 (AMPC)

Instead of trying so hard to work up faith, we would be wise to spend that time and effort simply receiving God’s love and loving Him in return. We are only going to be able to walk in faith based on whatwe believe about the Father’s love.

Galatians 5:6 says that faith works by love. Faith will not work without love. This scripture is telling us that if we don’t know how much God loves us, we have nothing to base our faith on.

Trusting God and walking in faith is leaning on Him and trusting Him for everything. You can only do that with someone when you know you are loved unconditionally. God’s love is His free gift to us, and we simply need to receive it, be thankful for it, and let it bring us closer to Him.

The Bible says, We love Him, because He first loved us (1 John 4:19 AMPC). When you are assured of the fact that God loved you first, you are excited to love Him in return— you are excited to live your life completely for Him.

Nobody in all the world will ever love you as God loves you.
