God’s Love Makes U Strong

Ephesians 3:19 - .. know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that u may be filled with all the fullness of God.

If u were 2 thank God for something today, what would it be? For me, it would be thanking God for giving me Jesus. For when I see Jesus on the cross, I see the love of God overcoming everything for me. It causes me 2 say, “Thank you, Jesus! I love you, Jesus! I worship u, Jesus! Bless u, Jesus! Hallelujah!”

And as we worship and celebrate the love of Jesus in our lives, we will find ourselves changed, and we will see the mighty power of God displayed for us and through us.

This was the case in the life of David. His personal times of worship, of being absorbed in God’s love for him, changed him from a mere shepherd boy 2 a lion killer, bear killer, giant killer and finally, a king over Israel.

Now, no one on earth, no matter how strong he is, let alone a youth, can come against a lion and prize open its mouth 2 snatch back his sheep which the lion had carried away, unless God’s anointing is on him. And this was indeed what happened 2 David the shepherd boy who went after the lion, caught it by its beard, struck and killed it, and thus delivered the lamb from its jaws. (1 Samuel 17:34–37)

My friend, no man can truly enjoy living in this world without God’s strength in his life, God’s favor in his work and relationships, God’s protection for him and his family, God’s increase in his finances, and God’s health and healing for his body. Likewise, no woman can survive emotionally, socially or physically without God’s tender touch, loving presence, sweet assurance and words of life in times of need.

Beloved, as u feed on Jesus’ love for u, u will be filled with the fullness of God. Like David, God’s anointing will begin 2 operate powerfully in your life. And when u encounter spiritual lions, even the devil himself — when he comes like a roaring lion against u, your loved ones or your possessions — u will grab hold of his mouth and tear him apart!
