Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV
Love plays a huge role in building resilience against the things that have the potential to break our hearts. Gods love, which is perfect, pure and undefiled, needs to be factored into your recovery plan.
Gods love is greater than any human beings love. Maybe some one has given you glimpses of His great love, but eventually that some one will fall short of being what love from God can provide. Before we look at what His love is like, let’s look at what it does.
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,”
Ephesians 3:16-18 NIV
And then it goes on to say ..
“and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Ephesians 3:19 NIV
Many Christians pray that they would be able to know God more, to know Him fully but they don’t seek to know His love and the power that it contains. Often it is because we don’t have a framework or human reference point of what true love looks like.
Tomorrow morning when you wake up, ask God to give you a fresh revelation of His love for you. Knowing His love, being “rooted and established in it” and growing through the pains of life because of it, will give you the best foundation for a resilient heart.
Thank you for your love. I want to know it more- not just at a intellectual level but at a heart level. I want to dive deeper into this thing called love so that my life May pour out only what comes from you. In Jesus name
