Atmosphere

Posted on Monday, February 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

In an atmosphere of love, resting in God’s intimate love, we can finally experience an awareness that our value is settled in God’s mind. God will not, cannot, love us more or less.

We tend to develop conditionally dependent relationships with people. Relating with God is different than that. It’s rational to choose to “act lovingly” our of fear.

We can obey God because we fear the wrath of God. On the other hand, God invites us to learn that his wrath is fearful, but that a loving relationship with the Almighty will naturally lead to obedience.

We’ll want to show love out of gratitude. As we show God love we will want to spend more time in God’s presence. It’s in the presence of God that we can hear the tender words of God’s love.

God sings love songs to us, “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” (NIV), “he will exult over you with loud singing” (NRSV), “Happy to have you back, he’ll calm you with his love and delight you with his songs. (The Message), and “He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song” (Zephaniah 3:17, NLT).

While jazz singers singing love songs appeals to me, I want more. I’m embracing the fact that God is singing love songs to you and to me.  Join me, please! This is mysilentscream.
