Love..I keep coming back to this word. I just posted a blog yesterday talking of this same word. Exclaiming that I want to bring not my Love but God’s Love and Hope to those in Uganda. I posted a picture of little kids whose eyes were piercing my heart with their cry for Love and Hope in such a Hopeless and unstable world. Then this song came along by Kim Walker, “How He Loves” and it talked of this Love that God has and it is changing explosive Love. My heart began to burst with burden for those little ones in Africa, it was exactly what I had written earlier that I would bring not my Love but this Love of the Father. It doesn’t even stop there, then I opened my Bible to Romans 8:35-39 and I had the Hope in my hands that I am to give to these children, “Can anything separate us form Christ’s Love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is our through Christ, who loves us.” Vs. 35,37
I have experienced His Love but not explosively. How can I teach or share what I have not known or experienced. So my prayer is that I will experience His explosive Love this week. How to do that or what to do experience that is beyond me, but right now I can start with sitting in His presence and wait for Him. “Be still and know that I am God” I have sat on this verse for a while but never really took the time to look at the rest, which says “I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth” Ps. 46:10. I guess that is confirmation on what I am to do this week!
Lord I pray that I would take this opportunity of where I am and the resources available and just “Be Still” in your presence!!!!
