Is love the greatest truth of all? I believe so. In past months, I’ve felt this love growing in me. It’s not by my own merit or effort. It’s not by the shallow depths of my knowledge. The Word was spoken to me, the seed was planted, and by His grace I was found to be good soil.
I want to love and not be afraid. If that verse, “perfect love casts out fear,” is true, then it’s only a matter of time. As I grow in love, fear must leave. I see it going even now.
What can I do but worship? Worship is not the striving or reaching towards some unknown universal entity. Worship is my heart’s response to the revelation of the true Spirit of God. As He reveals His heart to me, my heart is purified and strengthened. Joy comes, no matter what my external circumstance. What can I give but all of me?
So I’m not going to care if I look weird. I won’t fear. I will sing, dance, shout, scream, write, pray, preach, heal, give, serve or just sit very still. I honestly don’t know everything I’m going to do. I won’t be prideful enough to think I know better than God. I will go where He leads and feast on His goodness along the way.
“The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, ‘The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.'”–Exodus 34:6-7
