…God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.
— 1 John 4:16 (AMP)
I remember when I began my ministry. When I was preparing for my first meeting, I asked the Lord what He wanted me to teach, and what came to my heart was, “Tell My people I love them.”
“They know that” I said. “I want to teach them something really powerful, not a Sunday school lesson out of John 3:16.”
The Lord reminded me that if people really knew how much He loved them, they would act differently than they do.
As I began to study the subject of receiving God’s love, I realized I was in desperate need of that message myself. I had a subconscious, vague sort of understanding that God loved me, but I needed deeper revelation. The love of God is meant to be a powerful force in our lives, one that will take us through even the most difficult trials without us ever doubting God’s love.
Prayer of the Day: Thank You, Father, for Your never-ending love for me, and I receive that love right now, in Jesus’ name, amen.
