Dear Jesus, I pray anyone who reads this takes it in and reflects it inwardly and outwardly for your glory.
JESUS! What a powerful and sweet name. There is truly no other name with such authority.
“No one is like you, Lord;
you are great,
and your name is mighty in power” Jeremiah 10:6.
Ponder this question while reading:
What is your main source of love? Maybe your love comes from reading, biking, or even shopping. After this I hope everyone will be able to boldly affirm their main love source as Jesus Christ himself.
Even though, Jesus does not need us we need him desperately. Despite our need for him, there is nothing that we can bring or have brought to Jesus that he needs. We owe him everything to him and he owes us nothing. Why do we often expect things in return? Selfishness. When we lose sight of making God our love source we start making other people or, even material things our source of love. Yet, since God is love he chooses to provide and be faithful to us–also showing us forgiveness for this selfishness. His grace and mercy shown to us is like no other, all because of his deep love for us. He is Jehovahjireh. Whatever it is we need the Lord is always faithful to provide through grace and blessings. We often partake in the idea that we chose him, but that could not be farther from the truth. “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you” John 15:16. Men and women of God stop listing Jesus as the second one in your heart and start placing him as first. Remember he already chose you. Do not place him on the back burner of your heart, for he is an all-knowing, and powerful God. He already knows what we are going to say or what we may be thinking even before we know ourselves– so there is no point and trying to hide it from him. Give Jesus the glory he deserves, by not only loving like him, but making him your source of love. You will be blessed abundantly through his love when you take this step with him. If God has placed something on your heart that you have been using as a source of love, then what better time to pray a prayer of repentance.
Thank you for this message today and I hear your words. I am sorry that I have been selfish recently or in the past, but I ask that you forgive my selfishness. Whatever I have placed at the top of my heart in the place of you I ask that you reign over it. You are a powerful and mighty God, and there is no point in trying to place things ahead of you. You are the Alpha and Omega, the one who was, and is, and is to come. I give you all the praise and glory Jesus. From this moment on, I will place you as number ONE in my heart and the reason that I love while loving like you. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORD AND FOR YOUR FORGIVNESS!
