Falling In Love With God…AGAIN!
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
It is so easy to slip from relationship to religion. God is not looking for people who just sing songs they don’t mean, preach sermons they don’t live, pray prayers that they don’t believe, and read His word like a novel or bedtime story. He wants us to know that He is deeply in love with us and wants us to relate with him from a place of love that is on fire.
It is so easy to constantly fall for the trap of feeling inadequate in God’s presence because you are not ticking all the boxes, like praying often enough or reading your Bible. God doesn’t want a guilt-based relationship— where I feel like I have to pray or God will punish me. That is not love. He wants us to come to a place where we pray because we are madly in love with Him.
In this season, fall in love with God. Make sure the reason why you serve Him is because you love Him, and not because you are trying to avoid His anger. He is not mad at you. He is mad about you. There is no greater freedom than loving God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
God bless you!
