I can easily conceive of my desire to know God, but to comprehend that I am known and seen by Him? Wow, the Lord sees me whether anyone else sees me or not.
When we block the flow of God’s love into our hearts, we have a love deficit and a big problem. Is this deficit behind the character issues that plague us?
What are the markers for a life lived in the belief of God’s love and not mere knowledge of it? Do you BELIEVE that you are loved? Does your life reflect it?
Why didn’t God keep that man from pulling the trigger rather than allowing the man to pull the trigger and then watch over him and bringing about some kind of judgment?
God has a purpose in bringing hateful people into our lives and it's not to harbor offenses in hatred and unforgiveness. We are to witness love.
Jesus is Love and if I let Him be my Life, then Love will express itself through my life and doings. Yes, it is true, all we need is Love!
‘God, whatever it takes for me to get to know You, I want it, because there's nothing else that can satisfy my heart like You.’
God's ways are not our ways. His love is often rough and easily seen as cruel. His love batters our hearts until our hearts are completely His.
Batter My Heart, Oh God! Let's look at someone in the Bible who lived with an open heart towards God to see if God battered it.
Either God catches us like a fish with a hook (enticing and wooing) or He hunts us like game (force to break, overthrow, imprison).
There is no diminishing a living testament to the great Love that makes all things new, so let's end the week with a love story like this one.
Take me to you, imprison me, for I, Except you enthrall me, never shall be free, Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
