Re-Centering in God’s Word


      God’s Pure love



Introduction: God is your Creator,  God is your first family of origin and your primary birth parent. As such, God is your most important attachment figure.  Therefore, getting to know God’s love and believing it as truth builds a deep, trusting, emotional attachment that allows you to love God unconditionally.  In trusting God’s love unconditionally, you will grow ever more like Christ: patient, kind, meek, humble, just, gentle, truthful, and thoughtful and confident of God’s beneficial plan for you, your life and its value in his eternal plan of love. 





Directions: The texts below are inspired by 1 Corinthians 13 and Exodus 33 and framed as words from God’s heart to your heart and mind.   Through faith and through the Spirit, hear God speaking directly to you.  If an aspect of God’s character strikes you, Stop!  Be still and listen!  After being spiritually refreshed, praise God for his wondrous character that in forms and guides his almighty power.   Alternatively, press on to the end, taking note of how God, The Holy Spirit, is working love in you.  Then write your resolve to have a character like God’s, for you were created in the image of Love.






Prayer: O Lord Jesus, friend, teacher, and redeemer, help me to believe without wavering that you have given me the Holy Spirit. [1 Jn 4:12-13]. Then, my ears will hear His voice in the texts below and I will see and bask in Abba’s true character.  As I contemplate the texts below, create an unwavering belief in me that I was created in the image of Love and that you redeemed me to reflect a love like yours in every minute of my daily life, each day.  Create now also in me a resolve to love you and others as you have loved the Father and as the Father has loved me. [1 Jn 4:12-13] And God said:  I AM LOVE.
