Do you feel loved?

Please don’t give the expected answer, “Of course I do,” without meditating on the answer.

Instead, ask the Holy Spirit, “Do I feel loved?”

Do you allow God’s love to cultivate?

For me, it’s a journey. For I’ve built walls around me, shutting God and others out of certain areas because of perceived pain.

Yet, he’s a relentless lover, wooing me to trust him.

He’s a creative lover, using different methods to discuss tearing down these walls.

If we don’t allow God’s love to destroy these walls, then one day, these walls will form a prison.

Bitterness, rejection, lies, anger are the guards keeping us inside. They tell us that if we go beyond these walls, we’ll no longer be safe from those people who want to hurt us. The pain is too costly.

But that’s a lie. Jesus already paid the price for all the pain we’ve suffered (and will suffer) from living in a fallen world.

Yes, people have and will hurt us, but let that pain go on Jesus. All the effects of rejection, betrayal, and abuse. Otherwise, those wounds will be like a cancer, spreading to other areas of your life.

It’s time. Time to yield to God’s path to freedom. For he doesn’t want any of his children to live imprisoned and shackled by the wounds of this world.

He wants us to walk in liberty, receiving all of his love in every area.

How do we do this practically?

Ask the Holy Spirit. He’ll show you what you can do specifically. He’s your life coach who knows every aspect of your life and how to effectively help you. Whatever you do, realize it’s less about a formula and a to-do list, but more about getting intimate with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. For the Bible says that we become what we behold.

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord–who is the Spirit–makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” (2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT)

How about you? What has his force of love demolished in your life? Please share in Comments below. Thank you.
