Thought to share: As your mind turns to thoughts of love today, don’t forget to look at ME, your First Love. I have loved you from eternity and pursued you from conception. MY love for you is so complete and perfect that you cannot understand its depths. I have faithfully been by your side, every moment of your life. I have wept with you and celebrated with you. I continually shower you with kindness and give you MY goodness. In ME, you find love, because I AM your true, eternal Love.
Ephesians 3:18-19 (NLT) And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.
Psalm 100:5 (NLT) For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation.
Romans 5:8 (NLT) But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
When you talk about experiencing God’s love I think about services at the river A corporate annoying definitely helps To experience God’s love . Sure makes you want to tell everybody you come contact with about it! There’s an open house in that place.
I agree – you can really sense both His Presence and His love in a very real way. It’s absolutely incredible!
I chuckled at your typo–annoying instead of anointing…Sometimes the anointing is annoying. By that I mean, it annoys you unless you respond. If you respond, it feels so good you never want to leave! I hear people say, “the song service is too long and loud”! What they are really saying is they are annoyed by the anointing. Everyone around them are in the Throne Room and they sit there like a bump on the log waiting for it all to “just get over”. There is a disconnect between them and Abba. They have heart issues.
I know that you enjoy the anointing as much as I. It just struck me how true your choice of words could actually be to the right person. You Are God’s Best!
David – sadly, many people are annoyed with the anointing. He doesn’t fit into our box or follow our format. He will let us have our format, but He will not be present. He cannot be reduced to a formula or a pattern. It does take an adjustment in our thinking to allow for His movement and agenda to unfold. But it’s so worth the “inconvenience”. I hope to be “inconvenienced” every weekend.
Kim I would love to be “inconvenienced” by His Presence every day. I can’t get enough! In His presence is fullness of joy!
Yes I agree. It also makes a very effective witness when someone who so excited about the things of God happening at their church all those people can say is where is this place and what time!
