Good morning, Friend!
We’re looking at giving God the very first part of our day.
When you get up in the morning, the first thing to do is to receive God’s love and company. This sets your day and is the foundation that you lay down with The Foundation Himself. It is a “reboot” if you will, and means that you recognize that God is the Alpha of your day. Later on we will discuss that He is also the Omega of the day, and He deserves more than a wink and a nod at the end of the day.
On Monday we talked about receiving God and God’s Presence (and Presents.) Today we’ll look at the importance of receiving God’s love. He created you to love Him back. Since you aren’t His little robot, you get to choose how you respond to His overtures. Here’s the difference: You tell your child, “Tell Mommy (Daddy) that you love me.” You demanded the response. The way that God works is like this: The child comes to you and says, “Mommy (Daddy,) I love you!” On his or her own volition, they come to YOU! God allows for your own personal response to His loving overtures.
God desires to be your Everything. The wonderful thing is that He IS all that you ever need. He will pour amazing wonders in your life if you allow Him to do so, and when you meet Him anytime, you are the better for it. You can actually make the God of The Universe joyful! Wow.
Receive God’s love. He desires you so much that He allowed His Son to die on the cross for your sins so that you can run into His Arms! Doesn’t He deserve at least ten minutes of uninterrupted time in your morning?
What can be more important than receiving God’s Love when you get up in the morning? Certainly not anything else! Jeremiah 31:3 says, “The LORD appeared to us in the past saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.’ “
Step into the power of The Spirit…the power that raised Jesus up from the dead. Step into that power and experience the eternal love that Yahweh has for you. Remember that this behavior is habit-forming and will bring you adventure like you have never known!
May God shower His love on you by revealing to you just how much you mean to Him. I am praying on this end that everyone who’s reading this will receive a supernatural hug from Christ that will amaze you. There’s no COVID-19 in Glory; The Spirit hugs everybody all the time. He hugs you here and now. Receive His love! Pay attention and keep the eyes of your heart on Christ.
Talk to you on Friday. I send prayers and joy your way.
