few weeks ago I noticed something going on from my inside and it wasn’t good, I was disliking someone at my place of work and I couldn’t stand him, the job was already tough on me and this person wasn’t making it any easier…. long story short I woke up the next morning venting to God during my prayer session and asking Him to take that spirit of hatred out of me so He began to teach me.
He said Have you realized that every decision I God have made from the beginning of creation and is still making concerning your life and the life of others all comes from a place of love? John chapter 3 verse 16 talks about God loving the world to an extent that he gave his most priced possession in the person of Jesus to die on the cross for our sins.
And so I came to realize that If God can make every decision of His from a place of love, so can I.
Romans 5 verse 5 says
And hope does not put us to shame because Gods love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who he has given to us.
If Gods love has been poured out into our hearts through the holy spirit and like we know this holy spirit is the spirit of God himself that lives on our inside, all we have to do is ask Him to help us live out this life of love on a day to day basis.
so of what essence is this love?
Bear in mind that Gods love is beyond the ordinary it is way greater and it supersedes any kind of love that has ever been made known to man and it will take only His help for this love to be fully expressed in you and I. God Himself is love and what better place can we learn to love if not from the origin of love. We see a fraction of this love explained in
1st Corinthians 13 verse 4-6.
Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy , it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Now Everywhere you see love in this scripture put God…If God is all of this beautiful attributes mentioned in the book of Corinthians and I am a child of God then I ought to live my life just like my father.
When you consciously decide through the help of the Holy Spirit that you are going to carry out every decision you make on a daily basis from a place of love you begin to experience more peace with others, yourself and with God. This kind of love enables us to see beyond the physical, it helps us to reach deep within, this love pushes us to want to know more about people from a place of sincerity rather than drawing conclusions from what you have heard people say about them. This love is one that would prevent you from waking up in the morning and all of a sudden you are bitter towards someone for no reason, This love helps us to see Beauty even in the ugliest situations.
As I bring this write up to a close let us see what
Romans chapter 8 verse 14 says.
For as many as are led by the spirit of God They are the sons of God.
Gods spirit is the spirit of love and not otherwise, my question to you reading this post is what are you and your decisions driven by? love or the opposite?
Thank you so much for Reading
have an amazing week ahead
