Living carefree in the love of God is doable and real. It’s the kind of life that Jesus lived on earth and the life He desires for each of us. But many believers are powerless and full of anxieties rather than love because they do not faithfully practice fellowship with God. They simply stand in the shadow of God, but don’t draw near. Perhaps they feel confused, abandoned, betrayed, or afraid of God. Or maybe they just stay too busy to draw near. This is not the Lord’s desire. He longs to be with us. Have a wonderful day as you remain in His perfect love. Love you all.
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love” John 15:9.
To really experience the loving personality and presence of God, we have to spend time with Him. Knowing about God and knowing Him personally are two different things. We can read the Bible and acquire knowledge about God’s love, but that doesn’t mean we will experience it in an intimate way. Knowing about someone and being involved in a relationship with them are two very different experiences.
I don’t know about you, but I surely don’t want to simply know about God and His love. I WANT TO SHARE IN IT. I want to open my heart to God by telling Him about my hurts and my joys. I also want to know what’s on His heart too. I desire to hear from Him instead of doing all the talking myself.(I KNOW THAT’S DIFFICULT FOR US) I want the kind of relationship that Christ had with His Father in heaven while here on earth. And, I can have that through abiding, and you can too.
Abiding in Christ means to remain in His presence daily – during every season and through every turn of life. Abiding takes more than a token prayer, reading a few biblical words, or singing some praise songs on Sunday.Today that connection may be about basking in his unconditional love. Tomorrow, it may be His strength that you relish. Whatever your need may be, you can find it in God’s presence daily.
