Love Poured Out

1 John 4:7-10 and Rom 5:5.

Oh, the love of God has been poured into our hearts! (Roman 5:5). Although we may be afflicted, poor, and depressed, we cannot deny the presence of God's love within us. We cannot deny that Christ died for us and that it was out of love! (1 John 4:7-10). Once we were enemies but Christ shed His blood on the cross to reconcile us to God. What love is this!

If God has given us His own Son, surely He will not do anything to hurt us. God is sovereign. He knows what is best for us. the choice is His, not ours. Regardless of our preference, what God has planned for us will be our portion. Everything related to us has been prepared by our Father.

We should simply pray "Lord, have Your way. I simply want what You want. I leave everything entirely in Your hands." This is our response to God when we realize afresh that He loves us so and that His love as been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
