The Front Porch: God's Love
God’s love is beneath you, above you, around you, upon you, within you, behind you, and before you. If fills every moment of your life, and will embrace you through all of eternity. . “That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19 (NKJV)
God is thinking about you at this very moment. He’s not just thinking one thought, but more thoughts than you can count. God’s mind is filled with thoughts about you because His heart is filled with love for you. . “Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,…Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered.” Psalm 40:4-5 (NKJV)
. When God speaks to us about His hands He wants us to recognize His power,
When He speaks to us about His face He wants us to see His glory,
When He speaks to us about the cross He wants us to know His heart.
. He opened His arms to press you to His bosom; He opened His heart to welcome you there; He opened up all His Divine fullness of life and love, and offered to take you up into its fellowship, to make you wholly one with Himself. —Andrew Murray . God’s love is all embracing. And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. Luke 15:20 (NKJV)
