Do yourself a massive favor and let God love the hell out of you. Then love yourself as much as He does. It will change your life forever. Kris Vallotton
I needed this word this morning.
I can so relate to what Kris Vallotton shared on his blog today: http://krisvallotton.com/what-is-your-love-lid/
Because I too try to lessen my value to a dollar figure, instead of accepting the gift of eternal value I have by being His Beloved.
And I don’t walk out my true value most days, because I am too busy playing into the enemy’s scheme to keep me focused on what I lack instead of what I have in Him.
I am wanted.
I am chosen.
I am signed, sealed, & delivered into freedom.
I am paid for in full.
I am Beloved.
I am the apple of His eye.
I am His delight.
I am His Bride.
I need to remind myself of my true value too, more often than I can to admit.
I too need to ask God to love up on me, to so overpower me with His love that the hell is literally shoved out when it encounters His love.
And let’s face it, hate doesn’t like to leave anywhere it has burrowed into, does it?
Yes, I said hate. Because hell is really about those who hate His creation, and the Creator.
Hell? It’s filled with fallen angels, serving their false god. And one day it will be filled with souls that failed to bend the knee before God. Who refused to accept the only thing that could keep them from their final destination, apart from Him.
Love can make all the difference.
And it starts with accepting that we are valuable enough to be loved.
Especially by our Maker, who rules over Heaven & earth, and holds the keys to set everyone free from the road to hell if they accept Him.
I am not the same mess within as I was when God first met me. I thank Holy Spirit for leading me as I take each thought captive before Him, before I accept what it says.
I am no longer on the highway to hell.
His love has literally scared hell’s grip on me and cast it out forever.
I am on the pathway to meet God face to face, and live in the comfort of His embrace for all eternity.
On the days when I am bloated, sick or discouraged, I need this reminder:
His love has changed me forever.
I have a purpose, plan and a future in His hands.
Beloved, may you too allow Him to soak you in the waves of His love, until all you see is His face beaming at you!
When you have steeped enough in His love, you will be able to accept it as your true value and walk in the confidence of bring His Beloved.
