Be Still SONday


1 John 4:19 says, “We love, because He first loved us.”

1 John 4:10 says, “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:10 says, “For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!”

1 John 3:1 says, “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.”

Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God, through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

Today, I pray that you soak in these truths and allow them to be the stepping stone you need to draw closer to God right this very moment.   I pray that you do not reject the truth and that you allow it to change your life.   I pray that you will stop fighting against God, and allow Him to love you as He has always desired to do from the moment you were created in your mother’s womb.  I pray that you will listen for that still small voice and allow it to be what leads you, and guides you to freedom from all that is weighing you down today.   I pray that you will know His love in a new way today and it will renew you to press in and on – as He carries whatever burdens you may be facing.   I pray you will understand the depth and breath of His love for you.   It is the one thing that I’m sure ofHis love was and is and will always be for us.

When I go back and read the first verse I shared above – I am in awe and so thankful.   Our ability to love is a gift from God.   Because He loves us – we can know and show love!
