Oh How Powerful Love Really Is!

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, December 6, 2013

"He loved us not because we're lovable, but because He is love." C. S. Lewis

In the loneliness of our struggle, we sometimes miss understanding the love God has for each of us. The love He has really is not based upon reciprocity. What we give to Him is not a measure of what He gives to us. His love is not predicated on what we do, but on whose we are. We are God's creation and He loves what he created!

The challenge we must recognize is if His creation is not functioning as it should, God will destroy and recreate, He will also retool to make His creation better.

I live for God's retooling, but I am fearful of God's destruction. The retooling is what the Prophet speaks about when God places you on the potter's wheel to mold and shape you. The destruction we see in the story of the flood and in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.

God reserves for Himself both options towards His creation. Therefore, I live for His retooling.

On how powerful God's love really is when in spite of my inconsistency, He is willing to retool me into His creation.

I submit myself to the power of God's love throughout life's journey.

Oh to be able to love like that, wouldn't the world be so much better!
