What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not to be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find your everyday human concerns will be met. Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself. Luke 12:29-32
Whatever you are facing today, whatever unexpected intrusion, stress, hurt, or insecurity, the Father wants you to know that He loves you. Really loves you. Jesus said, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
Is it really possible that LOVE is the answer? Could LOVE alone make a difference in this sin-sick world? Could we truly find freedom from our personal chains if we could only grasp the tender love of our Father?
One of my favorite new-found authors Wayne Jacobsen writes,
"The reason we don’t experience his fullness in our unfolding lives is because we live as if we are not loved. Fearful he won’t take care of us, we believe the lie that says God only helps those who help themselves. The most important thing we can discover is that the God of the Ages wants nothing more than for you to know him as the Abba—the tender Father who wants to sweep you up in his arms and transform you by winning you to the simple reality that no one loves you more than he does. This is not just an intellectual conclusion; it is a revelation at the core of our being. Ask him to give you that. Pray that he will show you with ever-increasing clarity how much affection he has for you. Only then can life truly unfold!"
