Let my love surround you.
Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
Love. It is something we desperately need and often demand. We want to be loved. And sometimes we want to give love. But do we know what it means to be surrounded by love?
God’s unfailing love surrounds us, IF we put our trust in Him. We can’t earn His love. We can’t buy His love this Christmas time. It doesn’t show up on Black Friday and Cyber Monday in limited quantity. God’s love doesn’t sell out. Nor does it disappointment. His love never fades away. It doesn’t come with term limits or conditions. His love doesn’t boast and is not proud nor jealous nor self-seeking.
The Lord offers us the gift of His all-surrounding love. Like a child’s hands stretched out for the gifts under the tree, we reach up toward our Father in Heaven and say “Yes, I receive this gift of love. Surround me. I know you’re enough for me. I trust you with my life, my all, my everything.”
- Take a few minutes to listen to “All to Jesus I Surrender.” Worship with your heart and mind and body.
- Praise God for the gift of His Son by faith!
- Confess the ways you’ve resisted trusting God.
- Ask the Lord to fill you with a deeper sense of His love surrounding you today.
