I remember when I began my ministry. When I was preparing for my first meeting, I asked the Lord what He wanted me to teach, and what came to my heart was, Tell My people I love them.
“They know that,” I said. “I want to teach them something really powerful, not a Sunday school lesson out of John 3:16.” The Lord reminded me that if people really knew how much He loves them, they would act differently than they do.
As I began to study the subject of receiving God’s love, I realized I was in desperate need of the message myself. I had a subconscious, vague sort of understanding that God loved me, but I needed deeper revelation. The love of God is meant to be a powerful force in our lives, one that will take us through even the most difficult trials without our ever doubting God’s love.
Power Thought: I am actively aware of God’s love for me.
