And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 Jn 4:16. When our heart and focus is truly on God, His love will flow from our life. The fruits of the spirit will abound in our life – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Gal 5:22-23). It’s also important to note that whilst we may love others, they may not love us, or in fact they may never like us. Jesus, the very pinnacle of love, was betrayed by Judas and David was wrongfully hunted by Saul, so we must make sure that we don’t take on the issues of others and let them effect our heart towards them or others. It’s what God thinks of us that matters, not what man thinks. Praise God today that His love always makes a way no matter what we may face, and as we keep our heart right with God, His love and peace will always be with us.
