“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” I John 4:16
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” I John 4:8
Hello everyone and welcome today, to Sunday Inspiration…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad you came to join me today and my prayer for you; is that you will discover a connection with God that will truly help you to experience the depth of His love for you!
Did you know that there is a love that isn’t based on feelings and emotions…a love that is love itself…a love that doesn’t have a list of conditions attached to it? This may be hard to believe; but it’s an unconditional love that comes from God Himself…for He is the true definition of love.
How many times have we unknowingly compared God’s love, to a human kind of love? I think we do this because this is the kind of love we experience here on earth; but one thing that makes God’s love so different from our own; is that there are no conditions attached to His love. In other words…He doesn’t love us, just because we love Him or because we are great to be with. God doesn’t demand anything of us, in return for His love. He just loves us for who He created us to be.
You know…we have moments in this life, when people tell us that they love us and then later, we find out that they don’t support us or care for us; but instead, they walk away from us, at a time when we need their support the most. This is what you call a conditional kind of love. In other words…in order to win that other persons love, we have to meet their demands and if we don’t; then they leave and take their love with them. On the other hand, we don’t have to be anything more; then what we already are, to receive God’s love. So tell me…why do we work so hard, for a love that may not always be there for us…or a love that we have to live up to, when God is longing so much, to give us a love that is actually a free gift…given from His heart to ours.
Did you know that God created you…just so you could share a loving relationship with Him? God doesn’t care about how you look or what you have done wrong in your life; He just wants to love you…it’s that simple.
Today, if you are looking for a love that will always support you…care for you and be there for you…no matter what you face; then may I encourage you to plug into God’s love today. It’s a perfect love…a love that comes from a perfect God and when we plug into God’s love, through the relationship we share with Him; then we will always be receiving a fresh supply of His love, within our hearts each day.
You know…our circumstances not only have a way of making our lives seem dark and dismal; but they can also make us feel lonely…abandoned by others and unloved; but no matter what you face; I truly know of a God, who will take His wings of love and shelter you, until your storm has passed by.
Today, we need to unplug ourselves from people who are only going to bring us further down and plug into a God, who will always be there…to love and care for us…a God who will never walk away or abandon us, at a time when we need His love the most.
Blessings on your Sunday!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
