GOD IS LOVE


GOD IS LOVE...

My devotion this morning brought me much joy and comfort, knowing that regardless of where the 'wind' blows, God is indeed love...and He loves us not just yesterday, but everyday of our lives...

Witnessing what has happened to my dear friend who lost her job recently (as mentioned in my blog last week), I felt compelled to share this message with my friend and all of you...and if you are reading this, my friend, I hope it serves as an encouragement to you... =)

Though the world do not understand you, though you've been treated indifferently because of the love that's lacking in the world, don't despair, my dear friend, because God is love... for those He loves He chastens... for those He loves He will provide according to His riches in glory... for those He loves He will shelter through all the storms that you're facing...press on my dear friend! He is the best judge, and He knows if you've been treated fairly...for He knows the full story in His macro viewpoint...

Here's my devotion to share with all who reads my blog... God is Love!

Winds Of Love

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. -1 John 4:8

A farmer had a weather vane on his barn, on which was written "God is love." When friends asked why, the farmer said, "This is to remind me that no matter which way the wind blows, God is love."

When the warm "south wind" with its soothing and balmy breezes brings showers of blessing, God is love. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above" (James 1:17).

When the cold "north wind" of trial and testing sweeps down upon you, God is love. "All things work together for good to those who love God" (Romans 8:28).

When the "west wind" blows hard upon you with its punishing intent, God is love. "Whom the Lord loves He chastens" (Hebrews 12:6).

When the "east wind" threatens to sweep away all that you have, God is love. "God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory" (Philippians 4:19).

Perhaps you are discouraged and downhearted. If so, remember, God still cares for you. What you are experiencing has either been sent or it has been allowed by Him for your good.

Yes, no matter which way the wind is blowing, God is love. -Richard De Haan

God is love: His mercy brightens All the path in which we rove; Bliss He wakes and woe He lightens-God is wisdom, God is love. -Bowring

No affliction would trouble us if we knew God's reason for permitting it.
