Developing Faith in Gods Love Part 2
DAY 1 DEVELOP TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD AND HIS LOVE .
Gods love will take care of you! His very name is Love, and He gladly offers knowledge of Himself to you when you ask. Our primary responsibility and delight is to seek Him, and as we do, we are blessed.
1. Gods love will take care of you.
God is Love. If you dont know love, you cant know God (1 John 4:8).
Trust Gods love through troubles, tests, temptations and trials, and you will develop patience, endurance and stability (James 1:2-4).
Be assured that God is for you, not against you.
Gods WORD tells us what the fruit of the spirit, or the results of our life in the love of God, will produce (Galatians 5:22-23).
Faith and patience (longsuffering) go together. Dont become discouraged, and stop believing and speaking before faith can bring what you are believing to completion.
God will meet your needs and your wants (James 1:4).
Continue to develop in knowing and believing in Gods love for you (1 John 4:16).
2. Knowledge of God and His wisdom are yours for the asking.
God desires for you to have full knowledge and understanding of His will (Colossians 1:9).
God wants us to know His plans and follow His directions. Find out Gods plan and follow it, because His plan is already blessed!
3. Gods Name is Love.
Our whole focus should be to develop and to renew our minds to Gods ways, and to have faith in the love of God.
God is unconditional, giving Love; and unconditional, giving Love is God.
We need our minds completely renovated, transformed and renewed, so that every time we hear the Name God, we think Love.
The English word God comes from the German word good, because God is good.
God has a Name in the Bibleits Jehovah. In the King James Version of the Bible, Jehovah is translated Lord, indicating that it is the Name of God.
Another Name used for God is Yahweh Ropheka, or Jehovah RaphaGod is our Healer (Exodus 15:26, Names of God Bible).
- If healing was no longer available, then God would have to change His Name, because God/Love heals.
Sadly, Gods Name has become a slang word. And, the word Love is also misused as slang. I love apple pie, or I love my car. We can like things, but we love God, and we love what He loves.
- Actually, its blasphemy to use Gods Names, such as God, or my LORD, or Love as slang.
- The devil is a legalist, and he will not allow your slang to go unnoticed. He will accuse you to God based on your every word.
4. Our primary responsibility and delight is to seek God, and as we do, we are blessed.
Let Gods love transform the way you think. Dont love and seek the world and its money (1 John 2:15).
Just because you have money, dont think youre better than anyone else. Be ready and willing to give to others in addition to tithing (1 Timothy 6:17).
Seek God first and His ways, and everything in Him will be yours (Matthew 6:33).
Gods blessings become yours when youre obedient to His WORD.
There is no fear in love. Fear brings torment. Satan is the tormentor. God doesnt want you to be tormented. Without fear, theres nothing for satan to use to torment you with (1 John 4:16-18)!
Stay focused, never give up, and you will see Gods goodness in your life.
