Alright today i had an idea for this blog , but when i was reading the Word this morning God moved my heart to something different!  I am going to be open and share the challenge the Holy Spirit spoke to me while in my quite time! I am still reading in Jeremiah(chapt.29-31) good stuff!  I love learning about how our God interacts with his people!! We serve a mighty powerful God!!!! AMEN? It was when i turned to the New Testament reading that the Holy Spirit began to move my heart. He is gentle and doesn’t condemn but wants us to see where we can grow closer to Him.  I am so thankful for this!!!  I so want to be closer to God and this is a day to come closer. I believe God always wants to share with us but it our choice.  Well, today when i read 1john 3( which i read many times) the challenge came to me for loving greater.  This is not easy to do in our own strength but when the Holy Spirit shows us how then wow, what peace and ease it is!!  Here is 1john3:18-20 “Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.v.19 this then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us.  For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.”    Verses 21-24 remind us to ask , i believe here it means to ask for help to love greater.  We can’t do it alone and God knows that is why we are encouraged to “ask”.   Then we can obey his command”to love one another”.  I was so reminded to love greater through Him today.  My flesh will fail in this area because i will always have feelings of disappointment on how others should love me so i can love them.  These are feelings and the truth is v.16″This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers(sisters).”  I am humbled with this verse and my prayer today is “Father may i love without strings attached to how i feel”! I pray today you feel Christ’s love for you and give His love to others. Of course this whole chapter has so much in it, you will be blessed if you read it!  May the Holy Spirit move you today too! I have all confidence He will when you ask 🙂
