The Real Power is in God's Love

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4:10 (NIV)

We live in such a confusing world and it's easy to miss how beautiful we are to God and how much He really does love us. Let's learn to long for the love of God. His love for us is unconditional and free.

God's love came as the ultimate Gift because He is the ultimate Giver of every good and perfect gift. All we need to do is open up our hearts and say, "Yes" to the Lord. That simple word to our Creator will yield you to God’s love.

Evil hates the fact that you and I are loved by God. All hell is probably trying to get you to believe that God does not care about you or does not love you. The Enemy wants us to believe that we mean nothing to our Father. Not so!! The truth is, God created us and chose us to love with a Love that will last forever. If we accept the Love, the Gift of Love then we will receive that unconditional love as our own personal Gift!

Beloved, fight off your fears and claim God’s love in your lives. Reach up and open your heart to Him. Ask God to tangibly show YOU His love...for you. Let Him fill you with His endless and abounding love. You can rest with the assurance of God’s love; it's an essential element of handling whatever comes your way. Now, that's POWER!!!

Prayer for today: Dear Creator God, help me to stand firm against the evil one (Satan) who tries to make me doubt your love. Dispel any fears and doubts that creep into my spirit and fill me with your love. Help me to enjoy the love you have for me, in Jesus name, Amen.
