Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:8.
Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. For this, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love works no evil to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. Romans 13:8-10.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Love is the answer. No matter what the problem, love is always the answer.
If everyone has love, all are united. If everyone gives love, the sin is covered and can heal. If everyone has love, no one has fear, for no one is out to harm another. If everyone has love all will work out for good. How good, how pleasant, how precious, where brethren dwell as one! And that will only work if there is love one for another.
Fear has to do with torment, fear of punishment and shame, but perfect love casts out ALL fear. Why? Fear is your sins will be uncovered, but love covers a multitude of sins. Love covers like a bandage and heals the sin. But in Jesus, Love took your sin and made you without it, as if it had never happened. Free from its power to put you in fear.
Love makes it so you no longer have to hide in fear. Love brought mankind out of hiding from Me, took down the dividing wall of sin that Adam had raised, and brought you with confidence to My throne of grace. How? The new and living way, Jesus, and His finished work on the Cross. Love is resurrection power. And My love is poured into your hearts by the gift of My Holy Spirit.
No longer hang back in fear and shame, have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, for He has forged for you a new and living way which He inaugurated through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since you have a great priest over My house that I have given you, draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having your heart sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and your body washed with pure water. Hold fast the confession of your hope without wavering, never give to evil and give up, for I who promised am faithful. Do not speak hatefully to or about others, instead consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds. Never isolate yourself in anger, forsaking assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encourage one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10:19-25.
Pray for love in your home, in your workplace, on the streets, in your city, in your nation. And let that love pour out from you. Pray for shalom. Pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray in the Name of Jesus. Cast out demons in the Name of Jesus. Abide in the Word. Cling to Me in love like a branch to the Vine, as the infant to the nursing mother, as the sheep to the shepherd and as the bride to the bridegroom.
I am always the answer because I am love. When I am present, the power to heal is flowing continually but only faith can receive it and faith works by love. That is why Jesus told you to forgive others against whom you have a grievance when you stand to pray, even better, pray for them.
When you see Jesus, you see Me, and so you are seeing what love does. Jesus did not think of Himself but of others’ needs. That is what He took on flesh and came to earth for, your best interests, not His. But in a way they were His and My best interests in that our delight is to be with the children of men and make our dwelling place with you, and We cannot do this so long as you are dead in your sins and trespasses and are hostile to love. Sin always creates a dividing wall that stops unity. But Jesus came and broke down the enmity. He overcame by love. And wherever He went there came to the power of love to heal and forgive, to make right what had gone wrong. Only love can do that. Hate and vengeance never can right the wrong done. It only escalates the evil. When you have no love for one another you will devour and tear each other apart. Your hearts will distance from one another and you cannot hear one another unless you yell down the dividing wall and that only fortifies it higher and gets your distance greater apart until you are yelling at the top of your voice and all yelling at the same time.
But when Jesus stepped into the darkness a light had risen with healing in its rays. Do you recall? One day He was teaching; and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and MY POWER WAS PRESENT FOR HIM TO PERFORM HEALING. And that is the power of love. It forgives and it heals. Do you remember who received that power that day? Not the ones who had no love in their hearts, but a paralytic lying on a mat that his friends had carried to My Son’s house in faith and love, and they tried to bring him in and to set him down in front of Jesus, but not finding any way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down through the tiles with his stretcher, into the middle of the crowd, in front of Jesus. And what did Jesus do? Did he chastise them for tearing open His roof? No, He did what love does. Seeing their faith, He said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven you.” But the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, “Who is this man who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?” Jesus, aware of their reasonings, answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins have been forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But, so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,”—He said to the paralytic—“I say to you, get up, and pick up your stretcher and go home.” Immediately he got up before them, and picked up what he had been lying on, and went home glorifying God. They were all struck with astonishment and began glorifying that work of love; and they were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen remarkable things today.” Luke 5:17-26.
Love forgives and love heals. Love does not condemn but speaks the truth in love. Love works for good and for My purposes of salvation in every situation. All will know you as My disciples by your love for one another. Do not be going after each other’s faults and failings. Do not be making a person the scapegoat of your problems. My Son already became that for you, why are you ripping into each other and believers even suing believers in court? My servant Paul already addressed this issue but you are still doing it. 1 Corinthians 6:1-11. Jesus told you to settle with your opponent on the way to court with him. He told you to give and be done with it. Love gives and love forgives.
Why do you fight and argue among yourselves? Isn’t it because of your selfish desires? They fight within you. You want something, but you don’t have it. So you kill. You want what others have, but you can’t get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t have what you want, because you don’t ask Me for it with love. When you do ask for something, you don’t receive it because you ask with wrong motives, faith receives but it only works by love. Love for Me and love for neighbor. If love is missing you are nothing but a noisy gong. James 3:1-3; 1 Corinthians 13:1. If your heart is bitter and unforgiving towards your fellow man, towards yourself, and/or towards Me, faith will not work. A miserable heart is not a thankful, loving heart. You can go through pain and come out healed with a strong spirit of love, but if you give into to misery, depression, bitterness, blame, and shame you bring on the pain and the gnawing of the little foxes will eat your bones away.
Let Me pour My love in your heart. Let go of the bitterness and shame and let My goodness flood your life. Apply love and your life will become a blooming garden were I delight to dwell with you in close fellowship, partnering with you in all you do. Jesus came to undo the mess the devil had made, are you ready to let Love unmess your life?
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
Isn’t it time you got out of the flesh and walked in the spirit? Stop pointing the finger in blame and trying to show others how wrong they are and how right you are. Imitating Me as My dear children and walking in love and forgiveness of heart will make your day so peaceful and filled with such a sweet fragrance in your heart that will spread wherever you go. It is nothing less than the sweet fragrance of love and a life well lived. And Heaven is filled with that beautiful fragrance of love and the oil of joy.
I love you. And that says it all for how I interact with you in Christ Jesus your Lord. And how can you walk in that love when you are facing those who are rejecting you and persecuting you? Listen to My servant Paul who suffered more rejection and persecution than you will ever have to face, “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39. You can love because I love you and knowing that gives you the strength to respond always in love. Love is always the answer. If everyone would love there are many things in the world that would no longer be necessary.
