The Love of God

"Blessed shall you be when you come in, & blessed shall you be when you go out." Deut 28:6 [NASB] This is not just a scripture promise, this is reality of life Jesus had given us through His sacrifice. When days I felt beaten, I felt the defeat, I will remind myself reading Deuteronomy 28, our blessing through the love of God, the perfect sacrifice of His only Son for all our sins...

My breakthrough of sales came to past on the 9th of April 2007, where Daddy in Heaven blessed me the sale of a high-end condominium worth S$1.7 million & the developer issued a professional fee of S$17,178. Praise Jesus as that was my birthday as well, what a much awaited blessing I pined since my migration of marketing to sales took place. I am just so blessed even little issue of my life such as I need to buy a new belt, I was blessed by a brother in Christ, the exact made I wanted & he had kept it for years never use much! You may say oh Godwyn, things are good for you thus you declare God is good. You are very wrong my beloved, as there are times I faced great multitude of adversity, I choose to count my blessings & I praise God when things are bad, I praise God when things are good...

Pastor Prince shared with us his revelation of the love of God a few weeks back & I felt so blessed under his teaching. There are 3 main elements in the love of God, being the state of manifestation, the perfection & measurement of His love for us. Rom 5:5-8 [NASB], "& hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has poured within our hearts through Holy Spirit who was given to us. For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; through perhaps for the good man someone dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Let us not be self occupied for inside enjoyment, look outside to Christ & the cause is on that cross with the effect, the love of God...

1 John 4:17-18 [NASB] demonstrated the perfection of God's love, "By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is so also are we in This World. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, & the one who fears is not perfected in love." God looks at Jesus not us for judgment, don't look at our circumstances beloved but trust in Christ who is our new identity. Is Christ rich? So are we in this World! Is Christ Healthy? So are we in this World! In the midst of storm, let us look at Jesus as He is above the storm Amen?! Step out of self occupation & we can step out of our pain...

The measurement of God's love? "I in them & you in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the World may know You send Me, & loved them, even as You have loved Me." John 17::23 [NASB]. "God does not see the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart." 1 Sam 16:17 [NCV] We are weary of society's surface-level system, of being graded according to the inches of our waist, the square footage of our house, the color of our skin, the make of our car, the label of our clothes, the size of our office, the presence of diplomas, the absence of pimples. Don't we weary of such games?

Hard work ignored. Devotion unrewarded. The boss chooses cleavage over character. The teacher picks pet students instead of prepared ones. Parents show of their favorite sons & leave their runts out in the field. Oh, the Goliath of exclusion. Are you sick of Him? Then it's time to quit staring at him. Who cares what he, or they think? What matters is what your Maker thinks. God always see what no one else saw: a God-seeking heart! Our Father knows our heart, & because He does, He has a place reserved just for you...

Oh Godwyn, you have no idea how I needed this because I have been in the midst of a storm. We live in a world where we have sunshine and we have storms, but He is Master and Lord of both. I so appreciate this post, thank you, thank you, thank you, I feel encouraged again as you said you have great times of blessing, but you also have adversity, I guess this is life. There would be no mountains if there were no valleys. I will lift you up in prayer today, thank you again.

Sister Lori:=) At work, I close my 'sales', I praised God, I don't close my 'sales', I still praise God!

I rather walk with His flow in my life with His blessing & favors not because of what I did, not because of what you did, it is because 2000 years ago, Jesus cried "It is Finished" with His perfect work on the cross!

Have a great week ahead! I will blog soon:=)

Godwyn Lim said...

Sister dana,

Praise Jesus, it's NOT about me but All about Him Amen?!

Thank you for constantly keeping me in your prayers! I truely appreciate as there are days where 'everything' seems to go wrong, ever encountered such?

I am learning to rest in Jesus, to do one thing an a time as in the scripture, it says, do not worry about tomorrow for the day will worry about by itself!

Sister Dana, you are in my prayers! Our Father is the King over the storm Amen?!

My favour verse: Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful: John 14:27 [NASB]

This is the day, this is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice & be glad in it!

God is with you...

Godwyn Lim said...
