When we have yielded our will and allowed ourselves to be loved by God, then His love abides in us and we can love as He does. When people see God’s love in us, they see Him. The Bible calls it “perfecting” His love in us. “In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.” (1 John 4:9-12)
God’s love is undoubtedly one of the most powerful forces on earth because it has the power to change the heart and thus, the will and behavior. When the hearts of people change, nations change. It begins with us. It begins with our heart. Today, we must yield our heart to Him. This means taking time with Him. Now. We cannot allow our busyness and the problems we face to stand between us and Him—they should unite us with Him. We are exponentially more powerful, wise and loving WITH Him than WITHOUT Him.
Why would we get in our car and drive to work or begin any part of our day without Him?
It is because we are ignorant of the power and peace of living in His will! The power to change the world and roll back the tide of evil, resides within those who are the children of God. God plants the seed of salvation in our heart; however, if we want to see it bear love’s fruit, then we must water it with The Word. Otherwise, it will lie dormant. The more we spend time with the Father of love, the more His love transforms us. The more His love transforms us, the more we can influence change in others because others SEE God’s love affecting EVERY area of our life. His love draws people to Him. God loves us before we love Him. We must simply turn around and run into His arms– instead of running away. When seeking God is the first order of the day, our day is perfectly ordered. When God perfects us through His love, wisdom and power, the world can SEE Jesus!
