Today is about God’s fearless love, our verse today is short and sweet and well, it’s kind of a representation of how God loves you. His love doesn’t come with conditions or all of these extra things, he just loves you unconditionally. There was a time in my life when I wore a shield of fear over my heart to protect me from getting hurt. Many times it was also a crutch I leaned on as an excuse to avoid following my dreams, moving forward in my life, and trusting in myself, others, and even God. As I look back over parts of my journey I can see that going through a divorce and the way that I judged myself because of it, left me feeling fearful of being hurt, it also kept me being the one of my own biggest roadblocks for my future.
Fear can make us untrusting, insecure, anxious, jealous, overprotective, or make us a worrying or fearful mom or dad. I’m sure I didn’t name everything, but you get it, it doesn’t bring out the best in us. As I am growing with God and learning how much He loves me, He also is changing my relationships with others. God had to show me that I didn’t trust others and the roadblocks and heartache I was creating for myself. When I saw that, I realized also that I had that shield around my heart, and having that meant I didn’t trust in God or the plan for my life.
Do you have fear guarding your heart? If so, what is it? I encourage you to pray and ask God to reveal it to you. Because you may also think that having a shield over your heart is needed as a part of self-preservation, but I want to encourage you today to lean into God’s fearless love to break through that shield. He loves you, and when we live in fear we are not only not trusting God in our life but we also are robbing ourself from joy and happiness.
As we end in prayer….Father God, we thank you for pouring limitless love into us so we can love You and others without fear. I lift my brothers and sisters today who may feel afraid, afraid of getting hurt and ask that you reveal it to them God. May they each feel and experience your fearless and limitless love God, we love you, we exalt you, we thank you, in Jesus name, amen!
