Loving God

Loving God

{ Day 211 }

I will sing of the Lord's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness knownthrough all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself. —Psalm 89:1-2

When we begin to understand God's emotions for us, a corresponding emotion is quickened in our hearts. For example, when we behold the passion in God's heart for us, our own hearts start to feel passion toward Him. We enjoy Jesus—why? Because we finally "get" that He enjoys us. We pursue Jesus because we grasp that He is pursuing us. The point is that our gazing into the emotions of God transforms us from the inside out. If you want to become a fiery lover of God, then you must understand God as the fiery lover of all the ages. The secret to having more love—or peace or joy or faith or any fruit of the Spirit—is enjoying God more. Wow! What a revelation! Trying harder will get you nowhere.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

God, I finally "get" it—You are pursuing me, You are seeking ways to bring me into a relationship with You. Here I am, Lord; overtake me and overwhelm me with Your glory.

We are committed and dedicated to Jesus because it
hits us that He is committed and dedicated to us.
