1 Corinthians shares the promise that even though we can’t see clearly all that God is doing now, someday -on the other side- we will understand and know Him as fully as He knows us! Imagine.
“But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation:
- Trust steadily in God,
- hope unswervingly,
- love extravagantly.
And the best of the three is love.” 1 Cor. 13:13 The Message
Keep on trusting, and hoping and remember Love is the key. Not just loving others-but loving God. It’s His love that feeds and fuels the ability to love others. My heart seeks to love The Father, which cultivates trust, which breeds hope for the future.
I can not possibly drum up love by my own initiative. I need The Holy Spirit to inspire and direct me. This one factor changes everything: heart, thoughts, motives. The Spirit knows the heart of God and He is freely given to anyone who follows Jesus.
Holy Spirit come and flood me, change my heart and mind. Fuel my trust, renew my hope and teach me Love Devine.
