“… and we have known and believed the love that God hath for us…….” I John 4:16 KJV
“For Christ is the end of the law … for everyone who trusts in, adheres to and relies on Him.” But the righteousness based on faith (imputed by God and bringing right relationship with Him says…….” Rm. 10:4 (AMP)
“It is of faith that it might by grace….” Rm. 4:16
There is a righteousness which is of faith peculiar to the age of grace ”For by grace are we saved through faith…” Eph.2:8. What is grace? It is the love of God. There is a righteousness that is by grace in the age of love; that means you have to have an alignment of faith for blessing to come in this time of grace.
Have faith in what? In His finished work. When you come based on this you have a right standing not based on what you do or have done and you get more.
In looking at the love of God, let your focus be on the fact that irrespective of what you are going through, irrespective that the answer you are waiting for has not come He still loves you.
“…So we are not giving up, how could we! Even though things are falling apart on us……these hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times…” 2 Cor. 4:13-15(MSG) Every detail is working to your advantage and to God’s glory advantage, you may not understand how, you don’t have to know how; good times are here for you because He loves you. Don’t give up, you can’t give up. He loves you and you can look to His love.
“If you being evil knows how to give good gifts to your children, how much more your heavenly Father…..”Lk.11:11(KJV). When you understand the love of God, you are not afraid for Him to lead you; it runs counter to love for Him to lead you to the pit or destruction. The problem with us is we don’t seem to know who our Father is. We don’t know what to expect from Him, what He can give and what He doesn’t give. When you know Him, you will know He will lead you to a good place. “……Mostly what God does is loves us…” Eph 5:2 (MSG) and He said “I have loved you with an everlasting love……….” Believe in His love!
