'We love because He first loved us.' - 1 John 4:19
Our love for others increases as we come to know and experience God’s love for us. What do you know of God’s love? Do you know that God loves you? Do you BELIEVE that He loves you? If so, we need to understand that believing implies confidence, satisfaction, and resting in God’s love for you. As you believe and as you come to trust His redemptive love for you, you will find yourself passing on God’s unconditional love to those around you. We love out of the overflow of our hearts. Is your heart full? Go to the source of it all. Get refreshed!
If you need a refreshing of God’s love today, I encourage you to pray this prayer:
“God, I need Your love. I need You. Restore and heal me and give me confidence and courage to live out this day with that same kind of love. I am grateful that Your love for me never waivers, that it doesn’t depend on my performance or circumstances. Thank you for reminding me that I can trust You and Your love to transform me into someone who loves like Jesus. Help me receive your love so deeply that it will overflow into others lives. Amen”
