Reflection: “God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” I John 4:16
Response: God is love. Love is who God is. His love never fails. Where the genuine love of God is at work in a believers’ life, fear is dispelled because the pure love of God is complete and flawless. I John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.” Abuse, control, and manipulation paralyzes and produces fear. Titles, gifts, and platforms can be used to measure value and worth. However, our spiritual identity is linked to God’s unchanging and consistent love for each of us. His love strengthens and validates us in every aspect of our lives.
Live exceptionally- in balance, freedom, and rest.™ What area of your life do you struggle with embracing God’s love? Be encouraged and reminded today that God’s love is absolute for you—because His inherent nature is love which is perfect, and never fails.
