Receiving Love

August 11th, 2011

Perhaps no woman in the Scriptures was loved more deeply than Rachel, as we see by the acts of Jacob. But do you think she realized how much Jacob loved her? In this day we are continually being exhorted to love one another, but some of the greatest miracles are wrought when we become aware that we are being loved. What God is doing for you would often be helped a great deal if you would follow this simple step: Instead of seeking ministry and help, just open your heart to the fact that a great amount of love and concentrated faith is already flowing to you.

Open your heart to a visitation of love and say, “Lord, I know You love me.” Instead of concentrating on trying to love God, just let Him love you. Appropriate the love and blessing from the Lord. Drink of it until you are completely intoxicated with it.
