Would you like to be loved by someone who has no agenda and no expectations? That would be remarkable—right? When we seek to know God and entrust our life to Him, that’s exactly the kind of love we discover. He has an expectancy to be with us; not an expectation. His love is the only true love we’ll ever experience; and it works a profound change in us. Our love becomes agenda-free. We love without expectation because God completely fulfills our every desire. We are no longer desperately seeking from others what they’re incapable of giving—because we’ve already found it in Him. Our deepest desire towards them isn’t rooted in what we think they can give us, but our greatest desire is that they possess what Christ has given us! When Christ is in us, He fills us, overflows from us, and—we have no space left for demanding or expecting from others.

How do we come to this place where our every desires is filled by God? We must know Him so well that we long for His presence. Then, His presence deeply affects us. When we desire and pursue Him above anything or anyone else resulting in His presence within us becoming stronger. He fills us.

What keeps us from taking the plunge with God? Is it doubt in His sacrificial love that He proved on the cross? Is it fear that His plans for us aren’t as good as our own? Is it distraction by the goodness in the world–the world that HE created? Ah, we so often ignore Him because of our distorted view of who He is! We don’t REALLY believe He is love. His Word says: “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” (1 John‬ ‭4:16‬) The truth? God is love and thus, whatever is standing between us and God is a lie that we have chosen to believe. When we give every part of our heart over to Him each day, we receive more love than we can ever give away. When we’re full of Him, we’re never full of ourselves. His love enables us to give others pure love.
