A LESSON IN LOVE


Over the years of being a prayer warrior/intercessor I often reflect on the goodness of God and the depth of His love for us... I cannot tell you the times my phone has rung with a prayer request that is demanded and not even asked... it's sometimes a thankless task where you give your heart and soul on behalf of another and often never get thanked or see how God has answered. And so my thoughts often turn to God and how He feels....
It's not easy to be a God Who most often is overlooked except in time of dire emergency wherein the most neglectful of believers will actually fall on their knees and petition Him.... the emergency glass is broken and they will resort to prayer.
How sad it must be that God is often not included even in our celebrations of His birth and is all but forgotten in His death and resurrection... as we watch our little ones unwrap presents or scramble to find hidden Easter eggs...
There are those who will take and take and who would never even give Him thanks for answered prayer. No, it wouldn't be an easy job for Him...
God knows we are a fickle lot. All over Him on Sunday and then forgotten about until the next Sunday for a couple of hours.... He must weary over all of this, yet through all, God remains constant in His love for us, showing His unmerited favour and grace to His often fickle and shallowly self-centred children....
Of course, He is a bigger Person than I am, for I get annoyed at the demands of some people who expect Him to jump at their command and who get miffed if He doesn't or who pout and threaten to renounce Him if He answers prayer in a way that they don't like... yet He stays faithful...
I think this is indicative of the beautiful Heart of our Saviour. The Servant God Who receives little thought or thanks most times by a lot of His children... a lesson in selfless love and pure devotion...
Have you given thanks today?

  1. It's sad how people have reduced our majestic King into mere eggs and gifts.
    It's a good reminder for us that, the Lord is our God, and is not subject to jokes and plays.
