Love Wins

Good Morning Gorgeous,

It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. A new day is unfolding.

I had an encounter yesterday where a friend and I prayed and we could feel the Presence of the Father and His love. It was right there in the room. The Presence was sweet and uplifting. We were both in awe of God and His goodness to come and love on us like that. And I believe encounters like that are just a glimpse of all He wants to offer us. When we seek Him, we will find Him. When we ask Him to show us His love, He will! If you are struggling to feel the love of God, ask Him to show you. A simple prayer of, “I really need to know I am loved by you Lord. Please show me.” Our simplest most heartfelt prayers are the ones that move the heart of the Father. He will show up! His Word promises it!

God’s powerful love is greater than any evil we will ever face. And in reality, we face evil everyday. There is a battle raging on in the unseen everyday. There are powers and principalities that we fight against. In the New Testament, Paul said:

But here is what is so beautiful and mind blowing. How do we fight back? We spend time with Jesus allowing Him to fill us with the light that drives out all darkness. We become so filled with love and the power of the truth of God’s Word that when we face something in our lives that is counter to what Jesus says about us, we rebuke it with truth and stay grounded in His love.

Scriptural truth and Love disarms many of the enemy’s tactics. When he tries to make you worry, doubt, question your worthiness, instead of agreeing with the lies, speak God’s love back over yourself. When you speak God’s truth and love, the enemy loses the battle over your mind. Love wins.

When the enemy tries to hurt you through a friend or a coworker by stirring up drama, and you go right to the person in love and talk to them with kindness even if they have hurt you, the enemy is disarmed. Love wins.

And ultimately NOTHING can separate you from the love of God. We may be in a spiritual battle everyday, but we are already conquerors!

We have been redeemed, marked by God, set apart unto Him, and NO power of hell, no scheme of the enemy will prevail against us and be able to separate us from God’s love. Nothing!

That is powerful love. A love so strong that it cannot be broken. It cannot be changed. It will not falter. It is not shifting sand. It is not weakened in some places. It is a love that will withstand any storm or force. Nothing you could ever do and nothing that has ever been done to you, can ever separate you from the love of God.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Abundantly show us Your love. Help us to both receive it and to show it to others. Help us to be a people who can enter into Your Presence and feel Your love, and help us to take that love to the hurting and show them the answer. Help us to use the love to fight against the darkness of this world. Let us be a people shining so bright with Your love that no darkness can stand. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Blessings and Love!
