Most people want to experience love first; then they will believe it, but that really doesn’t happen in real life. When we have problems with rejection it doesn’t matter what anyone does to express their love, we will doubt it. Because we don’t believe it, we don’t receive it; therefore, we don’t experience it.
Receiving is not a passive act. To “receive” means to “take of hold of something and bring it unto yourself.” Since God has already freely expressed His love it is our place to take hold of it and embrace it until it becomes our reality! “Just how do we do that?” you might ask. Simple! We read and believe what God did through the Lord Jesus. Very specifically, we read and believe what Jesus did for us at the cross: that is where the love of God was manifested in its ultimate expression.
When I read the Bible the first time I remember praying, ”Lord, I know this is true but I don’t believe a lot of it and I don’t like some of it; but I’m willing! So I’m asking You to bring me into Your love. I want to know You and I give You the freedom to invade my life.” Willingness creates openness, being open creates a hearing heart and a hearing heart hears the voice of God as He whispers life and love!
JOIN ME this week and let’s start the journey into experiencing God’s perfect love. God has already made the first move, now it’s up to us to respond. I want to help you make this journey!
