[That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]….
— Ephesians 3:19 (AMPC)
I sense the Holy Spirit urging me this morning to meditate on how much God loves me, and I want to urge you to do the same thing. God doesn’t love us because we deserve it, but simply because He is love, and He delights in loving us.
Although we walk by faith and we don’t base what we believe on mere experience or what we see with our natural eyes, it is nonetheless encouraging and energizing when we do see and experience the manifestation of our faith. God’s Word teaches us to pray to experience His Love, and to be conscious and aware of His Love (see 1 John 4:16, Ephesians 3:19).
Watch daily for all the ways in which God reveals His love for you. It may be in giving you favor, or providing something you enjoy, or giving you great joy. He can reveal Himself in countless ways and learning how to recognize them is not only an exciting adventure, but it also feeds and builds our faith.
God loves you more than you can imagine. He loves you every moment of your life, and He is reaching out to you right now with His healing and energizing love. Receive it!
Prayer of the Day: Father, teach me to recognize all the ways in which You reveal Your love to me. Let me experience it, enjoy it, and share it with other people, amen.
