If we really knew how much God loves us we wouldn't be afraid to do anything for Him. I like what John said about God's perfect love in 1 John 4:18, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love". (NKJV)
What would you do if you had no fear? What would you do if you truly knew how much God really loves you? I believe when God reveals His love to you in an intimate and personal way, your life will be transformed.
Ephesians 3:17-19 says, "...that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passess knowledge that you may be filled with all the fullness of God". (NKJV)If you have already accepted Christ in your heart by faith, then you are rooted in the love of God.
How big is God's love? His love is so wide, so long, so deep and so high that it cannot be measured. God's love for you is endless. There is no limit to how much He truly loves you. What I find so amazing about God's love is, He loves us whether we believe in His love or not. Did He not love us when we were yet sinners?
I try to imagine what His love looks like. In my mind, I see myself running in God's love and seeing how big it really is. I finally realize I no longer have to run and find an end to His love for me because it doesn't exist. It is everlasting. I believe God wants us to rest in His love.
When I began to understand more of this revelation, fears began to leave and I began to do things I've wanted to do for years. Love is so freeing and unlimited. We can never run out of it. His love for us in uncondtional. We don't have to do anything to earn it.
If you have a dream that seems so big, realize the love of God will make this dream come true. I believe the motive for everything we do is love. Your dream requires you to step out in faith. Galatians 5:6 says faith works by love. Your faith in God is fueled by His love for you.
So when you are ready to live the life you're meant to live, just remember it is the love of God that will motivate you. God has given you His love and His faith. Isn't it time to share them with others?
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
