When We Deny Ourselves, We Gain God As Our Forever.

When We Deny Ourselves, We Gain God As Our Forever.

     God is different than people. Honestly, sometimes it is so easy to forget that He isn't like us. We often like to equate His love or His actions as being conditional. But the truth is that they are
unconditional. Unlike us, His love does not punish, but it protects. His love does not challenge us, but it does change us. God is so unlike us, that it even goes beyond our comprehension. I think when we as sons and daughters get caught up in the how and why of His love for us, we begin to lose sight of how big, deep and wide that it is.
God's love empowers, embraces, changes and grows. I often see His love in rain. When we ask for growth He makes it rain. When we ask for change, He moves mountains. We need to remember that God is not like us. Not in how He acts, not in how He chooses whom He loves. We were chosen by God. When we realize that, it carries weight. Isaiah 43:4, "Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been
honorable, and I have loved thee:
therefore, will I give men for thee, and people for thy life." God just wants us. He wants every part of ourselves. For His glory, for His love.
Through all of this, we have a decision to make. Will we continue to run from Him or run to Him? We need Him for our weaknesses, and for our decisions. We need Him for our futures and for our pasts. We need God. Sons and daughters, I ask that you will not only embrace how crazy and amazing God's love is but embrace our own need for Him. It is when we embrace, that we grow. It is in the realization that we become rooted and grounded. It is in the past and future, that we see His steady hand. Embrace today, just because God is. Make God your oxygen today. Rely on His unfailing love and choose to let yourself go. When we deny ourselves, we gain God as our forever.
