Often when things are going well in a person’s life, they will make mention that ‘God is good’. I have come to learn that God is good all the time not just when the sun is out!
He is full of faith and for those who truly seek Him out, He is full of wisdom, knowledge, understanding and strength. In truly seeking out God, I believe you find yourself face to face with the truth found only in Christ.
From the very beginning of the story, we witness that God enjoys fellowship with man. It is the father of lies who over the years has perfected how to trick the masses into believing things like ‘God is a vengeful God; One who is out to make life difficult for you when, with a snap of His fingers, He could solve all the problems in the world if He truly loved all of us.’ Or the lie that ‘We are not good enough to receive God’s love; we are unworthy of it.’
Both of those lies were one’s that I once believed. However, I have come to learn the truth. God is Love.
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NASB)
I don’t know about you, but even as I have come to accept Christ Jesus as my LORD and Savior, I still fall prey to the flesh and it reveals its ugliness the greatest when taking a look at just what love is! I fall short of this list often.
Today is what the world refers to as Valentine’s Day. A day for us to show love to one another in grandiose ways. For me, it is a day to reflect upon the love of my LORD, which is endless! May all of you experience His love this year!
