The Power Of Love

God is love. He shares His love with us every day. Many of the things we see around us are expressions of that love. We only need to look outside in nature to see that love unfolding every minute of every day. Every intricate detail has been taken care of, for the plants and the animals too.

Each facet of nature has its own very important role. It plays its own part so that everything can come together to form the perfect tapestry. Even something seemingly minute and insignificant is equally important in its function so that everything remains in perfect balance.

Life for us humans is like that too. No matter how seemingly insignificant our role is, it is still precious and important in God’s eyes. He has us placed exactly where we need to be, so that his perfect will shall be done.

This balance can be quite delicate at times. It takes only one of us to decide to do things our way instead of God’s way to upset this balance. When we interfere with God’s plan by taking matters into our own hands, this is when we can experience delays in the manifestation of our desires.

We must not interfere with God’s will. Of course, it goes without saying that if we are believing for something to become a reality in our lives, we must continue to stand on His word and never give up.

Patience is a virtue. It’s only when we lose faith that our lives become a shambles. God warns us about this in His word. He tells us to have patient endurance through all the trials and sufferings. He tells us this because He loves us and He wants us to receive all our blessings that are due to us! 1 Peter 5:10 NKJV “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.”

Of course, we know that God made the ultimate sacrifice out of His love for us, and that is, He sent His one and only beloved Son to be born of the flesh, to walk amongst men, to heal the nations and to die for us so that we could live. Because of Jesus, we have been redeemed from the curse of the law. Galatians 3:13-14 NKJV “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

The power of love can mend a broken heart, and comfort a lonely soul. The power of God’s love can move mountains! The power of God’s love can heal all our diseases and enable us to prosper in everything we do. All we need is a little faith and we can expect to see those miracles unfolding in our lives. Psalm 103:1-5 NKJV “BLESS the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Amen.

PS 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NKJV “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, love never fails.” Amen.

All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
