Love is the cornerstone of God’s will

WITHOUT God’s communication to us, we will be doomed. God has to speak to us because if He doesn’t speak to us there is absolutely no way that we can get out of situations we encounter in life.

Hence He speaks to us. It is for this reason that in the book of Isaiah 55:10-11 He says: “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (KJV).

The word of God is life and in it there is an answer for every question and a solution for every problem. Let’s not move away from authenticity and validity of the word of God.

John 1:1-5: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created.

Life was in him and that life was the light of men. That light shines the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.”

John 1:14: “The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father.”

You cannot help studying God’s word without concluding that relationships are high priority with God. He cares about his creatures, love permeates his very nature and every aspect of his person.

Indeed, love is the cornerstone of his will for us and the depth of humanity is based actually on the height of love: the more love you have, the more humble you become. Love is not selective; selectivity is the love of “ego”, not the love of God.

Realise that God loves you with all his being and that He wants to help you to walk through life with Him. You have a role to play in God’s creation, you are here to manifest God’s divine purpose to the universe and this is how important and valuable you are in the eyes of God. God planned this moment in your life. God longs for you to discover the life He created for you to live here on earth, and forever in eternity.)
