Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible. 1 John 2:15 TPT
Perhaps that is what Jesus meant when He said that we are in the world but not of the world. There is simply no comparison between Gods other worldly love and the love you experience in the world. If you can’t tell the difference, you’ve not experienced the Love of God.
Those who have learned to praise God through the hard times are those who know the difference because they’ve experienced the light of His love. They’ve learned that even in the dark, He brings a light that can’t be turned off.
I hope you’ve been encouraged this week in the Word with me. It always challenges me to stay in the light so that others can find their way to Him. You are indeed loved and appreciated more than you’ll ever know. Not only by God, but by me as well.
I will continue to pray for you as you reach out your arms and lay consumed in His love this weekend.
