What is hindering you from experiencing the full power of God’s love? From my past experiences, it’s always boiled down to being myself - I am the one who is blocking the way for God’s love to fully penetrate and have power in my life. How? The biggest step to understanding God’s love is accepting who you are through Him. If you give in to the lies that the enemy says about you (failure, you’re weak, ugly, selfish, impatient, etc.), then you will become those things. You will be looking through a different pair of glasses, if you will, and will not be able to fully encounter God’s love. The enemy’s lies and God’s truth are two very different perspectives. If you live for God, you cannot be giving in to HaSatan’s lies. Obviously we are human, and make mistakes – we will never be perfect. However, if we know the truth of God’s Word, we can surely strive for the perfect love that Yeshua displayed for us on the cross.
Anytime a lie shoots through your mind about yourself or another person, remind yourself about what Yahweh says about you or that other person. As soon as you do that, you are cancelling out that lie and coming into agreement with the Father’s love, thus entering into just the shallow stages of being able to feel His love. Too often do people pray to feel God’s love, or to have an amazing encounter with Him, but they don’t realize they don’t have that full access of feeling His love because there are too many lies that they have come into agreement with. Yahweh’s love is not to be taken lightly or shallow. The more lies we cancel out in His name, and the more we seek Him with a humble heart and walk our lives out in faith, the more His love will be evident in our lives. He will bless you in any and every area needed in your life and you will be amazed at the results that will happen. The Spiritual realm is a very powerful thing. The enemy and his tactics are often so deceiving and constantly lurking around us, when we least expect or know it. We are constantly fighting a battle within our minds every day without even fully knowing it. It’s so important to take every thought captive, and make sure that it is in alignment with the Word of God, not the enemy. Speak life and truth over your sister, brother, mom, dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and most importantly over yourself. Speaking life over yourself will help you to be able to share the love of the Father to other people. Part of living your life for God is to be able to share His love. If we agree with the lies of the enemy (the opposite of God’s love) then we stay chained and unable to spread the love because of the chains of the lies that have kept us back from spreading the love. If you can’t love yourself, how can you love others? If you are married and don’t love yourself for how God created you, how will you be able to love your spouse the way he/she needs to be loved? Same goes for a mother/father to their children, and really just anyone. We all need love, and we all have an important role to play. Understand the power the enemy and his influence can have and affect over your life as well as the power of God’s love that can change one’s life forever. Choose to speak life and choose to believe who you are through Yeshua.
