Greetings everyone. Rob here.
God is love.
I wonder how well you’re believing that this year? Do you believe that whatever God is up to in our world right now is being done out of perfect love? Do you believe that whatever God is up to in your own life and in the life of your family is being done out of perfect love?
Because it is.
God can’t do it any other way. Love is the only way he knows. He can’t help but act out of perfect love.
But it sure can be hard to believe sometimes.
Did Jonah know that God chased him down and put him in the belly of a fish because he was acting out of perfect love?
Did Jeremiah know that God was acting with perfect love when he had him keep prophesying in the face of intense persecution?
Did Jesus know the Father’s perfect love on the cross?
Do you know that God loves you perfectly right now despite your circumstances and despite your struggles to believe that it’s true?
I suggest that you stop reading right now and take a moment to agree with God’s perfect love for you.
Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, I agree right now that you love me perfectly. You are love and I agree with your love. Amen.
Right now, in a world that is increasingly full of hate and division , agreeing with God’s love is the best and most radical act of faith you can do. It sets your heart right, renews your mind and gives the enemy nothing to work with. It helps you love others with God’s perfect love too and the world desperately needs us to do that.
This week may you agree that God is love and that his love for you is perfect and unceasing. May you keep on agreeing with that most beautiful truth.
Grace and peace.
