We can search for love in all the wrong places. We fill ourselves with temporal things: romance, achievement, money, things, drama, food, mood altering substances. When we do we will find that we are still empty, because there is a void deep down in our heart that is only satisfied by infinite love.
God is love. He created us in His image for family, relationship and purpose. He shaped us uniquely with our own individual DNA and intricately designed fingerprints because each of us are that special to Him. He cares for each and every one of us more than we can comprehend.
When we disconnected from God, we lost our vision and we lost our way. God’s love left Heaven for Earth to rescue us. Jesus embraced us, healed us and set us free. He gave His life for you and me at the cross and now we can be God’s very own children upon whom he lavishes His love.
Now we can daily come to the throne room of grace in prayer and receive the love of God poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. The more we allow God’s love to fill us, the more we will experience peace that transcends understanding, fullness of joy and a confident expectation of good. Our Father God’s love causes us to become people of love; because loved people love.
1 John 4;8 (MSG) - The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God.
