John 3:16 For
God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
FATHER, what great love that you have. Not only was this love for others
but it is for me also. You have given so much for me. Truly only Your love can satisfy and fill me………….
DAY 2 - 1John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because
fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
LORD, I am made perfect through Christ Jesus, therefore I am made perfect and fear cannot abide in or around me. Your love is perfect and has cast it
out. Thank You Lord for your precious promises…………
DAY 3 - John 15:9-10 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you:continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my
love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
HEAVENLY FATHER, it is not always easy to continue in Your love. Sometimes I look at the circumstances around me and allow them to
overshadow me. I repent Lord, for I remember Your great love toward me and I chose to dwell there……….
DAY 4 - Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for
he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
JESUS, you were the first to fulfill the law for you were the very breath of love. I am beginning to see that I may perform a lot of things in Your kingdom, but they will
not meet the requirement of the law. Only love can fulfill it. You have called me to walk in love and today I chose to do so……….
DAY 5 - 1John 4:20
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
LORD, I realize that it is true. I cannot hate my
brother and love You. For he is a part of You. Forgive me Lord and help me to release the love that you have shown me to others.
- Luke 7:47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
HEAVENLY FATHER, forgiveness and love are bound
together in Your heart. I just cannot express to You how much I love you, therefore, I see that my sin were many…….
- 1John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
FATHER, I am born of Your
Spirit and I thank You that love is a part of me for I am a part of You. My mind tells me that I cannot love, but not only can I, but I do love……
- 1Corinthians 8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity (love) edifieth.
GRACIOUS LORD, I desire to be one that builds up others. It is
my heart to see others as You do. I seek not after knowledge, but I press in to walk in the love which You have given to me……
DAY 9 - Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, who is rich in mercy, for
his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
FATHER, so great is Your mercy and Your love. Each day I behold You in even
greater measure and understanding. You didn't save me because I was good, for I was steeped in sin. But You saved me because You love me. How great is Your love toward me…………..
- Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
LORD JESUS, all of my own efforts and works avail nothing. My faith will never work
because of what I do, but it will only work and be released by love. I repent Lord for not walking in love toward others. Please forgive me. Your magnificent love can only be seen in me if I release it, and faith can
only bear fruit in my life if I love…….
DAY 11 - 1Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity (love), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love).
FATHER, please increase my understanding of love. Each day help me to see more and more the greatness of it…….
- Philippians 2:2:1-5 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy,
that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let
this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
FATHER IN HEAVEN, the mind which was in Christ Jesus was love. I see that love enabled him to humble himself. I desire to walk in this love. I desire to come
into unity You are speaking of and I am beginning to see that can only be done through the mind of Christ, which that mind (that way of thinking) was love and not one's own ambitions……….
- Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
LORD, how good You are to have put Your love in my heart. Never will
I be ashamed because my hope is in You and Your love is in my heart. I can rest secure in the assurance that You will uphold Your promises in my life………….
- 2Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
FATHER GOD, I repent of giving way to fear. Your word tells me in the book of James that every
good and perfect gift comes down from You. You have given me Your Spirit which is of power, and of love and of a sound mind. If I walk in Your love, I will have power and a sound mind……
- Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
LORD GOD, I admit that I have strained the reins of liberty at times. This is sin and I do not want to walk this way. I
turn from my selfishness and set my heart to walk in Your love and to serve others. It is my desire to love them as I have loved myself…….
DAY 16 - Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
LORD JESUS, truly You did love God with all of Yourself and laid Your
life down because of that love for Him and for us. Help me to grow in love. Help me to make the love that has been put within me a part of my daily actions. I love You God with all that is in me……………
- Galatians 5: 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
FATHER, You have given us the gifts of
the Spirit and the fruit of the Spirit. Thank You for showing me that the firstfruit of the Spirit is love. Without love, the other fruits cannot be there. Just like Jesus, who is the Firstfuit of the brethren. Without
Him, there cannot be others…………..
DAY 18 -1John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and
hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
MY FATHER, it overwhelms me to think that you love me just as you loved Jesus. I am sorry Father that I ever doubted Your love and limited Your love toward me. I receive all of
Your love now. Daily Father, remind me of Your great love toward me…………..
DAY 19 - James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of
life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him
LORD GOD, because of Your love I can endure temptation. In fact, Your Word tells me that you will make a way of escape for me from temptation. I press on to
the mark Lord, for that prize which is promised me because I love You, the crown of life………..
DAY 20 - 1Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
Today, MY LORD GOD, I put on the breastplate of faith and love along with my helmet of salvation which You have given to
me. I am a child of God and I shall not be found to be sleeping, rather I shall be watchful…………….
- 1Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and
have not charity (love), I am nothing.
FATHER, forgive me for thinking that all of these wonderful gifts You have given to me would make me something. For focusing on the giftings rather than You, the Giver.
Love is what You are and love is what I am called to be. Today, I turn my heart to love………….
