“For the LORD has inspired” Jeremiah 51:11
It is written that the love of the LORD compels us to do good works so that the world may see His goodness right here in the land of the living.
This morning I was driving in my car listening to KLOVE radio when a “Behind the Music” story came on the air. Chris Tomlin was explaining how he had been inspired, by the Childhood song “Jesus Loves Me“, to write his new song “Jesus Loves Me”.
In the Behind the Music segment, he called the Truth of Jesus’ love for us, “simple”. And I about came unglued. While he is 100% correct. The love of Jesus for YOU is anything BUT simple. It’s powerful and complex beyond our wildest imagination! The love of Jesus is like a fractal, simple on the surface, yet the more closely you look at it the more amazingly complex it becomes.
The love of Jesus for me is by far the most amazingly complex thing I have ever experienced in my life. It is so simple and yet so amazingly profound! Here I find myself trying to come up with words to describe this Love and yet over and over what word do I find myself using? Amazing!
He is so amazing! His love toward us is amazing! It’s all I can say!!! The woman of many many words can think of none at the moment, save amazing.
My dearest friends, my deepest prayer for you – today and every day – is that you will FEEL His amazing love for you in wondrous ways. I pray that you will open your hearts to FULLY receive His love for you today (and every day) because His love for you is POWER for you. It is STRENGTH in your bones. It is HOPE for your soul. His love is simple and profound. It is wide and deep, high and low.
His love for you is the Holy Spirit in and through and to you. It is power beyond your wildest dreams and yet it is more accessible than anything else on this planet. It’s a breath away; a mere tear-fall from your reach. His love is yours for the taking. It’s yours for the receiving. It’s yours for eternity. His love is FOR you! You were created to receive His complete and total adoration. He is head over heels in love with every single aspect of you. There isn’t a single piece of you that He doesn’t love.
Jesus loves YOU.
