“Know this day that all you need shall be upheld in
the atmosphere of perfect love. While many would allow godly love to grow cold,
choose in all things to let that love abound through you. It will overcome the
impossible and create an entrance for the supernatural,” says the Spirit.
Because we are living in the last days that Jesus spoke
about, it is more important than ever that we examine our walk with God
regularly. The enemy is using so many different temptations, trials and
distractions to throw people off track. Jesus said one of the ways this
would happen is that our love for each other would begin to show signs of
growing cold (Matt. 24:12).
He said it would “wax” cold—like a candle that has
burned out. The wax then becomes cold, hard and provides no warmth or light.
You see, the way the world will know we are genuinely Christians is not by how
many people attend our churches or by our good music or preaching. They will
know we are true followers of Christ because of one simple fact: that we love
each other unselfishly.
When the world would rather revert to backbiting, gossip,
betrayal and finger-pointing, we choose to stay in unity and love. The ability
to do that will make them stand up and take notice because it is a truly
supernatural act in a world filled with hate. To win the world, we need love
toward one another in our churches, families, marriages and ministries.
It is in that atmosphere of love that the presence of God
will abide, and you can be certain wherever God abides, there will be no
hindrance to miracles, answered prayer and blessings. Love will release the
supernatural, so let your love abound today.
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13:
“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one
another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts
blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ with all His saints.
Dear Heavenly Father, I
ask that You would help me to walk in love today with all my fellow believers
and all people. Forgive me, Lord, for the areas where I have not chosen to walk
in love. Put a watch over my mouth today that my words will be filled with love
and that I will speak well of others. Cause Your love to abound in me today! In
the name of Jesus, amen.
