Love heals a multitude of sins, it’s true. But it will cost you everything to operate in love. Who will pay the price of love? Love will cost you your anger, you will have to die to self, you will have to elevate others, even when no one is elevating you, it will cost you time, and patience, you will have to set a watch over your mouth, one day you will have to be silent, another day you will have to speak, or the irresistible urge to be right, or the irresistible urge to prove another wrong, love weighs differently on different days, love is not equal to or greater than… love means praying for enemies, with as much heartfelt devotion as you will for those easy to love, love cost you acts of kindness to those who wouldn’t take the time to do anything nice at all for you, love cost you words of edification to others, who have nothing nice to say about you, love cost you devoted prayer for others, who may never say a word of prayer for you, love is unfair and full of favor, but I promise you, though it will cost you everything… love means you can’t keep any of the treasure you have inside… you have to spend it… you have to pour it out because love is sacred, and it has to be poured out into the world…or the world will continue in pain. Is there one thing that you can restore today by applying love? If you stripped everything else away from the conversation, would love remain?
Here’s what I do know… The Presence of GOD moves in an atmosphere of genuine, undivided, unprecedented, uncompromising, unconditional pure love.
If it has been a while since you have seen what love can do in your life… reset and start off today with the LORD’s Recommendation…
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
I’m constantly praying for breakthrough, blessing, and miracles for you, people I don’t even know, and for the ones that I do, because I GOD moves in an atmosphere of love.
Let’s pour more love in the atmosphere today (especially the kind of love that cost us the loss of pride, anger, bitterness, envy, strife, the kind that requires humility, dying to self, patience, time…) and stand back and watch miracles happen all around our lives and the lives of those around us.
Challenge: Pour out so much love today, that GOD has no choice but to fill you up again with a fresh anointing of love!
Love until you pass out from an overdose on love!
