In a journey to find love and be loved, we forget the source of love. In Him is the foundation and beginning of love. He does not only produce love or give love, He is love.
No one can love effectively if they do not have Him. It is His love for us that gives us the capacity to respond to any expression of love.
I mean, can you love more than the foundation of love? The question I ask every day.
“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”1 John 4:16 KJV
So pay attention!!! If you have God, you have love and should exhibit the character of Him to everyone around you.
Loving yourself is the beginning of any quest for Love. Truth be told, we only give what we have, if you have not loved yourself enough, it may be difficult to love another or respond in such matter.
Having understood that the foundation of love is God, if He resides in you, then His presence as love should naturally flow from you. Nobody is perfect but the porter made you just the way you are, for the very purpose you have been called to, in the very world you have been given access to dominate.
There is so much peace in knowing how valuable you are and understanding that the value will be extended to the people around you as well.
The quest for love!!!
As you search high and low for true love and it’s expression, you must begin with :-
1. God- the founder and totality of love.
2. You- one of the expressions of Gods love to the world.
3. People- knowing yourself will help you appreciate others as they are also an expression of His love to the world.
As the quest begins, we must have these foundations, it most likely will attract like minds. Let God begin with you on this. He knows the desires of your heart and He will meet you at the very point of your need.
“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.”Matthew 5:3 MSG
There is always more of/from God for everyone that believes Him.
Let the quest begin!!!
