Beloveds! Praying you are well!
What's been on my heart this past week is a short encouragement on Love... Love is the seed that yields a tree of good fruit...Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control. Love is where faith starts, prosperity starts, ministry starts, evangelism starts... Love is where fear ends, hopelessness ends, uncertainty ends, insecurity ends.. Love is the driving force, Love is the motivation.. Love needs to be our motivation in all things. I simply ask you this as I so asked myself this past week; Are you cultivating? Cultivating: - to promote of improve the growth of (a plant, crop etc) by labour and attention - to seek the acquaintance of... Are you cultivating an atmosphere where the fruits of the Spirit can grow, by labour (in the Word) and attention (worship, prayer & confession of the Word)? Is Love our focus? Are we conscious of Love throughout the day? Let us cultivate an atmosphere conducive to the growth & revelation of Love <3 His Love for us and in us for the benefit of others. Allow The Holy Spirit to water your seeds today, "come away with Me to the secret place, let Me show you how to Love My Way, let Me wash away your fears, let Me enrich your heart and mind with Love..." He says. There are so many scriptures I wanted to share on Love, but I guess this one encompasses it all... Let's mull this over today (at least one part of it lol!) Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. -1 Cor 13:4-8 Have a blessed day and week. In His Love, Nicole Xx
