TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I AM perfect and Holy God. There is none like Me because I Am Love. When you accept the love I have for you, you become worthy of giving that very same love back to Me. Come, worship and bow down!
The Bible tells us in Genesis that God formed man from the dust of the earth and breathed life into him. From the very beginning of His relationship with us, God has been a giver.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” – James 1:17
The greatest gift He’s every given is Himself and He’s done that on numerous occasions. The most notable are the cross and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Both of those are acts of love because we are incapable of loving God on our own. Once we accept His love, we can then love him in return.
“A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.” – John 3:27
It’s true! Only God can love God. We’re incapable without His redemption and His Spirit living in us.
“Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him? For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.” – Romans 11:53-36
God gave you and me a command to love Him with all our heart, all our mind, all our strength and all our soul. God gives the command, but honestly it’s not really a command.
Here’s what God is trying to teach us: He wants us to love Him but we can’t. So, when He tells us to love Him, it’s an invitation to be loved by Him. He’s giving us an invitation to receive it so we can give it back. We are the beloved.
Do you love the Lord Jesus with all your heart, mind and strength? Accept the love of the Father, the sacrifice of the Son and the gift of the Holy Spirit and live in abundance today.
