When We Love God
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. V.10 But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
The mindset of being in love with someone is so powerful that offenses have little chance to depreciate from the value it maintains. This value becomes inseparable and as a result it endures through every obstacle it encounters. It is the strongest of man's passions allowed by Almighty God to consummate. There is no virtue stronger than love or more enduring than love. Love literally endures all things!
When we exercise love, we open channels of inspiration, motivation and encouragement between parties that we are in union with. This interaction has immense power.
It overlooks the slightest misunderstanding. It supercedes the greatest disappointments. And love even prevails over blatant disapproval from those it is in union with.
The benefits of love are all by-products and not requirements. This is, at least in part, why love is the strongest virtue known to mankind. It wins in every case and it will never fail. This love is the tool of God, and it is God—for God is love!
The interaction and connection between those in the bond of love opens a common truth of respect, admiration and honor that exchanges even secrets in its highest forms.
This is what happens when we are in love with Almighty God. As we endear this gracious union of excellence and strength with Almighty God through the accepted provision of Jesus the Christ, then there opens an amalgamation of a divine trust between us.
But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.
Here we see the relationship of loving God as He loves us. This love has no precondition of acceptance.
Why do some have a deeper revelation of God's truth? Why do some offer words and impressions of loving God yet have little revelation of the deeper things of God?
Perhaps many love in word and not in deed. Once God opens to us things that eyes don't see and ears don't hear, then we must conclude that we have found a relational love that God trusts. This is truly a by-product of loving God.
When God sees the reverence and the fear of God that we carry in a truth relationship with Him, then He will open the hidden manna to us so few know about.
How do I love God? It is an unconditional respect and passion to revere and genuinely worship. This form of love worships and has total trust and dependence on Almighty God, even against all odds. This worship of dependence is a delight that gives no audience to human impossibility. It delights in the things that Almighty God delights in. It is engaging, and balanced with a flow of grace.
There are no pre-qualifications of esteem to enter into such an extensive relationship with Almighty God for the saint.
The words that describe this so well are found in James 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him?
It is in this inseparable faith relationship that Almighty God calls His love to prosper. This love relationship is a faith relationship. These passionate loving believers find the realistic power of God's truth and hold the inseparable promise from Almighty God alone, to be the heirs of His kingdom!
Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations;
May we hear and acknowledge that we are well within the 'thousand generation'. Hallelujah!
