Receive His Perfect Love (1 Peter 5:7)

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)

Key to surrendering all our cares to God is understanding how much He cares for us. The more we get a revelation of His perfect love, the more will we find ourselves at peace regardless of circumstances. When we receive the perfect love of Jesus we find rest in His finished works, trusting that He has already perfected all that concerns us.

God’s Perfect Love (1 John 4:7-9)

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:7-9 (KJV)

Everything God has done for us through the finished works of Jesus is rooted in His perfect love for us. We know and experience the love of God as we look to Jesus and receive the fullness of what His grace has made available. In this we will find ourselves blessed and being a blessing.

Focus On His Love (John 13:34)

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John 13:34 (KJV)

The new commandment to love follows us first receiving God’s love for us. It is only when our hearts are saturated by the love of Christ that we have the ability to love others in the way He loves us. Let us focus on the love of God in Christ Jesus, and we will find His love flowing out through us.

Holy And Blameless Before Him (Ephesians 1:4)

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Ephesians 1:4 (KJV)

In Christ we are holy and blameless before the Father in love, not because of our actions or performance, but as a result of having been made the sons and daughters of God. Now it is God’s love that compels us and enables us to live right. Chains are broken and darkness loses its grip over us, as guilt and condemnation are replaced with the goodness and mercy of God.

God’s Perfect Love (1 John 4:7-9)

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:7-9 (KJV)

Everything God has done for us through the finished works of Jesus is rooted in His perfect love for us. To know and experience the love of God, we look to Jesus and receive the fullness of what His grace has made available. In this we will find ourselves blessed and being a blessing.

God Is Love (1 John 4:16)

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

1 John 4:16 (KJV)

To dwell in God is to dwell in His love. When we understand that God does not have love, but that God is love, we find ourselves receiving His perfect love for us and in turn we can share it with others.

Taught Of God To Love (1 Thessalonians 4:9)

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)

God indwelling us by His Holy Spirit compels us to want to love one another. As we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit who is at work in us, we will find ourselves being led more fully into living a life of love, kindness and compassion as we receive God’s love for us in Christ.

Confident To Rest (Psalm 116:7)

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 (KJV)

We are at rest when we are confident that God is handling everything that concerns us. We rest in our confidence that God has already made available what we need, and out of this assurance will we see His goodness showing up in our lives. God works when we are at a place of peace.

Nothing Can Separate Us From Him (John 10:28)

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:28 (KJV)

After we receive Jesus no one and nothing can ever separate us from Him. We have been joined unto Christ for eternity, and no amount of mistakes or shortcomings on our part can undo this union. Our role is to receive His precious gift of righteousness, and all that comes with it by faith.

Receive His Love (Romans 8:37)

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Romans 8:37 (KJV)

Receiving the unconditional love of God in Christ Jesus makes us more than conquerors no matter what may be coming against us. It is never our self-effort or performance, but receiving His loveĀ and mercy that sets us up for success and victory in every area of life.
