WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO LOVE GOD?~A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


The Love of God.....

THIS IS LOVE FOR GOD:  TO OBEY HIS COMMANDS.  AND HIS COMMANDS ARE NOT BURDENSOME; FOR EVERYONE BORN OF GOD, OVERCOMES THE WORLD.  THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD, EVEN OUR FAITH.  WHO IS IT THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD?  ONLY HE WHO BELIEVES THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD.  I JOHN 5:3-5

A guarantee from God, but with instruction.  According to his specifications.  If we say we love God, then we must want to obey his commands. No, ifs, but’s, or maybes. For by obeying him we can have a victory.  Wow, in a world, that seems so unsure, in the way we view it, we can have a hope for a victory.  We can overcome.  That is Gods promise to us even here.  I love his word.  I love taking a scripture like this and defining it, and to try to understand it.  And if I do not understand it, all I have to do is ask God.  And by his Holy spirit, I can get revelation.  I can get understanding.  So, to know, that all we have to do, to love God, is to believe, in Jesus Christ, and to try and obey him.

Wait….Let me rephrase that, one must, decide once and for all to obey God.  To truly express love to him.

I remember a few years ago, this was challenging for me, and it can be.  If you want to stay in the ways of the world.  And to continue to sin.  But I remember a few years ago, I made up my mind, that I was going to give it my all.  To serve God, to obey him, to love him, and to turn from sin.  To turn from doing things my way.  I have not been the same since then.  And to say it has been easy, would be a lie.  But I would never go back to not feeling this security, that only God almighty gives me.   Life goes by so quickly.  And the inevitable, is obvious.  We all die.  I am glad, I know, because of Jesus Christ, I have a place with him.  Theres no doubt in my mind.  That in itself, is a victory, here on this earth…I have overcome the world.  Because Jesus is my savior.

Burdensome?  Not once you make up your mind.  There is a peace and a joy, I would never have had, if I had continued and struggled with this decision.  I struggled, before,  but not now.  I know….

My Prayer of Hope….

Father, I do love you Lord.  I thank you Lord, what more can I say, to you in this public prayer?  But you know my heart.  You know all of our hearts.  To love you, to seek you, to come to your throne, just as we are….Lord, what an awesome God you are.  You take us, change us, restore us, renew us, taking the darkness, the sin, away.  And forever we are changed.  By this great love of yours.  That is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  Father, how someone can deny you, is beyond me.  But I am so glad, you showed me your love, through Jesus Christ.  And yes, the Holy word, your gospel, the Bible, has shown me how and what your commandments are.  Not religion.  Not rules made by men.  But your commandments, have been revealed.  I don’t get them confused.  For I know truth, that has set me free.  I am so glad to know, that Christ died for my sins.  So, I finally could live. I pray, that for the reader here, who does not know you.  That you can make that change for them as well.  For you are not a respecter of persons.  All we have to do is believe…that Jesus Christ is Lord.  And obey your commands.  This is my desire to obey you not only now, but always.  Because I do love you.  I love you more than I can say.  And in your sons name, our Lord.  Amen

Dear reader, If you do not know Gods love, and his commandments, please pray the prayer link below, with the Prayer of Salvation.  And begin reading your Bible.  I recommend John.  In the new testament.  And please also let me know, if I can pray for you.  Acknowledge to your friends, the decision, you have made to live for Christ.  It will not be burdensome, if you make up your mind, once and for all.  I know….

Blessings, Just my thoughts, and with love,
