Our Prayer Gift of LOVE

20 04 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday we begin exploring the gifts God give us through our prayer relationship, the first gift is the gift of love.

(We pick up the prayer shawl design story where we left off last time.  You can begin reading the entire series by visiting our post dated April 9th.)

While telling friends about these lessons associated with the prayer shawl, I shared how because God desires relationship with us, our prayers go up to Him and out of my mouth came the next revelation, and God’s love comes down completing the loop.

God is Love: 1 John 4:8 & 16. Love is one of God’s greatest attributes/qualities and as He reveals himself why should we be

surprised one of the first gift we receive as we pray is God’s love!

Yet I was stunned by this revelation coming out of my own mouth, because in my prayer closet I was ready to listen, ready to learn, ready to repent,

expecting God to give me divine revelation, or tell me what I was doing wrong, never realizing what I was missing. I grieved as I remembered how many times God tried to share His love with me and I wasn’t willing to receive it.

Now because I am open to receiving it, there is a greater depth to my relationship with God and greater joy as I am filled and flooded with God’s gift of love no matter the situation.  What a wonderful revelation this was.

Join me next time for the gift of peace.

Blessings and Complete Joy,
