And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also
~ 1 John 4:21, KJV ~
Spiritual health begins when we praise and worship Almighty God. For, this is what our Heavenly Father intends for us to do. We are called to love God. Our love is manifested in seeking His will daily and walk in obedience to his words and instructions. Through our time in prayer, meditation, praise, and worship – we invite His love into our hearts. It is something we do faithfully and obediently.
Through our true worship – we allow him to reign over our lives, guide us daily, and strengthen us in our faith and hope through Jesus Christ. We grow and deepen our love for God. Through our love for God, we deepen our love for others. We walk in mercy and grace and forgiveness. We sow kindness. We are gentle and mindful of others and their needs.
Today, open your heart to receive God’s divine and sovereign love so that you are empowered to share this with others. For, it is an eternal and never-ending love.
~ Today’s Prayer and Meditation ~
Heavenly Father, through my obedience, I grow deeper in love and appreciation for your grace and mercy. Fill me with the love that surpasses all understanding so that I can show this love toward others who are hurting, lost, broken, and doubting. Let my kindness be a reflection of your mercy and grace. You have greatly blessed me with a love that is infinite and eternal. In Jesus Name, Amen.
