Daily Devotional - February 17, 2021
💙 Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "How He Loves" by David Crowder Band. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
💜 Daily Verse: And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
☆ Romans 5:5 NLT
💚 Let's Talk About It: I am convinced that love is something we all must learn. I don't know about you, but I am grateful for the Holy Spirit that fills my heart with God's love.
It's only since I've been saved that I've opened up to people and experiencing new things, especially when it comes to doing things I'm not very comfortable with.
I used to be afraid to open up, invite people over, and even go outside, but since walking in relationship with God, I have formed amazing friendships, have a Bible study in my home every Friday evening, and don't even mind going to check on my chickens.
Only God can teach us how to love and for some of us, it begins with learning how to love ourself so we can love others better. He does this by the Holy Spirit. Not only does it teach us how to love, but it does so by testifying of God's love for us daily.
In essence, our love is an outpouring of the love God pours out upon us. Let's be intentional about loving someone today!
🧡 Prayer: Dear God, I am so thankful for another day, and another opportunity to love others as you love me. Help me to slow down and help someone today; not just see a need, but fill a need. Lord, you are so good to me and I am so thankful for your precious Holy Spirit. Help me to love my husband and son sacrificially and to draw even nearer to you. You alone, God, are my source and strength, my ever-present help in time of need. May your will br done. I love you Jesus, and in your name I pray, amen.
