Do you know that our God wants MORE for you and me than we want more for ourselves? His word says that the INCREASE of His kingdom knows no end (Isaiah 9:7). The invasion of His kingdom’s culture, the awareness of His love and the goodness of our Daddy God will tremendously escalate in and through the hearts of His children until the whole earth will be filled with His glory as the waters covers the sea … and His method is LOVE!
Each one of us has been given the free will to choose whatever. It is an attribute of LOVE not to control or manipulate, but to give you and I the choice whom to love, whom to worship, whom to give our affection to and whom to pledge our allegiance to.
How awesome it is to think that even if He gave us the choice, it is still He Who initiated it all and gave us an open invitation to journey with Him in love. “We love Him because He first loved us.” (1John 4:19) We give love because He first gave Jesus, Love personified, to us. “For God SO LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten Son that WHOEVER believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16). He is the Initiator! He is the First! He is the Beginning! He is the Alpha! And He remains the same forevermore!
We all know that the INCREASE in His kingdom NEVER ends and it is His zeal for us that establishes it. He takes us from line upon line, precept upon precept, revelation upon revelation, from faith to faith, from glory to glory. Our life is a learning process with adventures to explore what has been revealed to us. It is indeed an exciting life that God has ordained for us EVERYDAY that He has made. Choose to rejoice and be glad in it for He already made it good!
Today, another powerful revelation got unveiled before my eyes and it is in Deuteronomy 30:6 (NLT) “The Lord your God will change your heart and the hearts of all your descendants, so that you will love Him with all your heart and soul and so you may live!” Isn’t it amazing that in this verse He revealed Himself as the “Love initiator” again? It is He Who changes our hearts to love Him with ALL our hearts! Who can beat that? He initiates, He sustains and then He ends it with … “well done, good and faithful servant!” Truly it is the goodness of God that changes the way we think about who He is and who we are to Him.
When He commanded us to love Him with all of our hearts, He already made sure that we will be able to do it. When He calls us to do something, that means He already empowered us to do it. His grace is all sufficient. He is that GOOD!
Do you know that we are the carriers of His goodness? When His love is demonstrated through you and me, it causes the one in front of us to see Jesus in us even without uttering a word. When they see, then they become aware. When they are aware, then it will invite them to return to the loving embrace of our Daddy God. When they come home into His embrace, their identity changes from being spiritual orphans to spiritual sons qualified to partake of the riches in glory of the inheritance of the saints fully paid by the Blood of Jesus Christ. He becomes their Portion and Inheritance and they become the dwelling place of His presence filled and flooded with His love.
Never underestimate small beginnings. The chaotic world around us is in desperate need of God’s touch of love that you and I carry. We always hear this phrase which is so true that we may be the only BIBLE that people read because they have been deceived and discouraged by mere words without actions. BUT now is a different season! As we yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives and allow Him to express Himself in and through us, a simple act of kindness becomes a window through which others can see JESUS and be powerfully touched by His loving presence. The power of touching one person is a seed for an upcoming plantation. Always see one as a multitude for our God is the greatest “Love Networker” of all.
