How He Loves Us!

Posted on October 19, 2016 at 5:50 AM


Sometimes, my friends, I find myself overwhelmed by the awareness of how much God loves me. He showed me how He incorporated His plan of salvation in the human body in the Laminin protein molecule (which I blogged about recently: "WOW"). That was exciting to have a small part of His creation revealed to me. Then as I was reading John 15 yesterday, His love for me and for you poured out. Hear these words of Jesus:


John 15:10-11(AMP)

10 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love,

just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love.

11) I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you,

and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.

Jesus wants His filling/fulfilling joy to be in us. This was the joy He gave me that sustained me throughout the cancer journey. (See Cast Up A Highway) With His joy we can stand strong through any storm or trial!

John 17:14-23

“I have given and delivered to them Your word (message) and the world has hated them,

because they are not of the world [do not belong to the world], just as I am not of the world.

(15) I do not ask that You will take them out of the world, but that You will keep and protect them from the evil one.

(16) “They are not of the world (worldly, belonging to the world), [just] as I am not of the world.


When we choose Jesus, we are translated into His Kingdom (Colossians 1:13) and we are no longer of the world. We live in a different plain, a new place. Our hearts now belong to God, and are cleansed and eager to live a life pleasing to Him; we want to fulfill His plan for our lives, not our own worldly one. The desires of our heart are drawn like a magnet to His goodness and righteousness. This contributes to the completeness of who we are, to who we were created to be.

(17) Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.”

There is joy, there is gladness, there is the Word and there is protection, there is sanctification or a purifying, there is consecration, there is holiness and truth, the truth of what the Word says. Hallelujah.


(18) “Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. (19) And so for their sake and on their behalf I sanctify (dedicate, consecrate) Myself, that they also may be sanctified (dedicated, consecrated, made holy) in the Truth.

(20) Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching,

Do you see what this means? Jesus was actually praying for us. Way back 2000 years ago, Jesus prayed for us, yes, that’s you an me.

Next Jesus expresses His dearest wish:


(21) That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.(22) I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one:”

Unity is what Jesus desires, that we may truly be one Body. We do not talk religion here; it’s not about that. It’s about the unity “That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us,” That we all accept Jesus gift of salvation; then we will become one Body. 

That’s pretty clear isn’t it, unity in the Body.

(23) “I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.” God loves us so much!


John 17:26 (NIV)

I have made You known to them, and will continue to make You known in order that the love You have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

Choose to invite Jesus into your heart, and He will settle down and make His home there.

Ephesians 3:17 (NLT)

17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.

My dear friends, with the strength of Christ dwelling within, you can live a life filled with the gifts of God~ power to fight the enemy, fortification to keep yourself and loved ones protected, armor to fight the battle, a mighty supernatural love shielding. Also you can grow deeper into God and receive revelation for your life, and so much more.

May the grace, power, and love of Christ reign over each day of your life!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
