Why should anyone take the time to get to know the Creator of the Universe?
Okay, I couldn’t resist saying it one more time!
God is Love.
It’s just that simple. True love is faithful.
God is faithful to us, even when we are not faithful to Him.
God builds, restores, encourages, and saves!
He is omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing),
omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time), and
immutable (never changing so I can rely on Him).
He is the great I AM (the final authority, the very present help that I need).
Imagine this for a moment:
LOVE CREATED THE UNIVERSE FOR YOU AND ME.
LOVE is faithful.
LOVE builds, restores, encourages, and saves!
LOVE is all powerful, all knowing,
present everywhere at the same time.
I can rely on LOVE, for LOVE is never changing.
LOVE is the final authority, the very present help that I need).
The Bible, my manual of love for the journey, says that
There is NOTHING that can separate us from God’s love,
His character, His presence.
How do I know that God’s Word is true?
His love rescued me.
Just as He loves me,
He has you on His mind this very moment
and cares about you watchfully.
He wants you to get to know Him better
and experience all the many facets of His love…
It makes my heart do a dance when I think about all He’s done for me
and what He has in store for you!
Yes God, The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
Three united as One,
has designed a unique plan for your life.
That you may do good works and glorify Him.
For one thing, God designed the tapestry that’s you
(your DNA, your unique talents, gifts, personality, passions, experiences, and intellect).
He strategically arranged for you to be born during this time in history
to display His excellence and love, as you get to know, love, trust, and obey Him.
“Will there be problems on this love journey,” you say?
Sure, you will have problems. I do.
They come with living.
But in spite of them, I’m learning that with LOVE’s help,
I can enjoy the journey!
And so can you.
Until next time,
Question – What are you doing to get to know Jesus Christ?
I’ve placed below some of my favorite scriptures in the [New International Version of the Bible] about today’s blog. I hope they bless you!
Deuteronomy 7:9 – Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
