February, the month of LOVE!!!! Of course, we focus on our love for our loved ones, but in order to really love them it takes meditation on God’s love to do it best. Recently, while meditating on God’s love, I realized I do not believe what I say I do. I am growing in the knowledge of God’s love for me and know I will throughout eternity because God is love and He is eternal. I’ve come to a new place of revelation that was eye-opening for me. We sing songs from the bible that say, “God’s love is better than life” or “A day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else.” If I truly believed this, then I wouldn’t get so upset when things don’t go my way in a relationship because my relationship with God would mean more to me than anything.
Over the years I have allowed the rejections I have experienced to get to me.
There were times I felt paralyzed. I would fight with myself about reaching out to others because I did not want to experience another rejection. I knew the right things to tell myself, but wasn’t believing them in my heart. This was causing a downward spiral that was getting the best of me. I knew the right things to do, but wasn’t acting on them the way I should. It takes a lot of diligence to move upstream, but the river is taking you downstream. I allowed the negative thoughts to be in the forefront of my mind.
I did Dr. Caroline Leaf’s Brain Detox Program.
It gave me the practical tools to do what I needed. Each day as I did the program, the Holy Spirit would minister different scriptures to help bring healing. Scriptures concerning God’s love for me flooded my mind. I began to meditate on them. Some of them were scriptures I meditated on years ago, but wasn’t using them the way I did in the past. The truth of God’s word really does set us free.
Knowing God’s love for me in a deeper way has helped me tremendously.
I’m reaching out to people even when the temptation is there not to. I feel like I have new life and I do because he gives us life abundantly!!! God’s mercies are new every morning! Great is his faithfulness!
I hope as you read this you are encouraged. As you meditate on the weekly scriptures, they will give you greater revelation of God’s love for you. Always keep in mind that “the Father himself tenderly loves and cares for you.” John 16:27
GOD’S LOVE IS BETTER TO ME THAN LIFE!
Psa. 63:3 Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself; how I praise you!
