In this month of love where love is flying over our heads in successive reminders and speeches, I would want us to reflect on the maker’s love for us.
There are times you have nothing to do than to appreciate God for His love. His love is genuine, pure and unconditional. In love He gave us His ‘only begotten son’ to draw us back to Him through salvation. What manner of love is this?
Rom 8:38 KJV For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39 KJV Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Oh, this scripture is my power house. The assurance of His love gives me a reservoir of strength that I fall on when all is lost.
Plus, the knowledge of this kind of life makes me sweep the dust off my feet and move on confidently. To me, ‘nothing’ means nothing. So if ‘nothing can separate me from the love of God,’ then I have nothing to worry about. I will only make sure that I don’t take this love for granted, one and two, I will not fail to reciprocate this love for God.
Have you been bruised, scorned, broken, destroyed, crushed down beyond repair? Look to God
Meditate on His love for you. He is your creator. Your first love. Remember “We love because He first loves us.”
Don’t measure man’s love with God’s love. Rather measure man’s love in the light of God’s word. I learnt this the hard way but let me share it with you. No one can really love you except they love God first and they love themselves. Anything outside this love will not yield any favourable result.
Have you given up on the word, ‘Love?’ C’mon, No.
God has not given up on you. Trust in God’s love and you will be just fine. He knows what suits your purpose and what will complement your destiny. Just hold on fast to the knowledge of His love for you and humanity.
Love is beautiful and when you are able to appreciate love in its proper dimensions, you enjoy the goodness of all kinds of inter personal relationships.
My heart and love go to hurt and bruised souls,
Widows, orphans, depressed hearts and all other categories of people who have been deprived of love in any way or the other.
Hold the hand of any of these people during this season.
Know this, God loves you unconditionally. That’s it. That’s all you need. That’s your hope and that’s your assurance.
