He Wants Us to Know His Love

HE WANTS TO GIVE US HIS PRESENCE

This is for me, one of the special things that God wants to do for us. God wants His presence to be something that we know and enjoy in our lives. He wants His presence to be a living reality in our lives. Imagine, the presence of God as something we can sense and feel! This is what God has in store for us. If we know His presence in our lives, we will discover that it is the only thing that really matters.

2 Corinthians 13:5 Do you feel Christ’s presence and power more and more within you?

God’s presence within us should become more and more of a reality in our lives.

HE WANTS US TO KNOW HIS LOVE

God’s love for us is something so wonderful. Deep within each of us God wants to be at work so that we will be able to feel His love.

Ephesians 3:17-19 And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; 18-19 and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it. And so at last you will be filled up with God himself.

He Wants to Give Us His Power

HE WANTS TO GIVE US HIS HOLY SPIRIT

Another thing that God wants to do within us is to place His Holy Spirit within us. The Holy Spirit was sent to be with us when Jesus returned to heaven. He is still here today and still wants to touch our lives so that we will never be the same again. God has created the possibility, within us humans, to know the Holy Spirit living within us.

 1 Corinthians 6:19 Haven’t you yet learned that your body is the home of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that he lives within you?

1 John 2:27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, in your hearts.

Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of God, who raised up Jesus from the dead, lives in you, he will make your dying bodies live again after you die, by means of this same Holy Spirit living within you.

HE WANTS TO GIVE US HIS POWER

God wants us to know His power within us. We can say: ‘Welcome Holy Spirit, we are in your presence, fill us with your power and live inside of us’. God’s power can be in you and me.

Romans 15:13 I pray that God will help you overflow with hope in him through the Holy Spirit’s power within you.

God’s power is a mighty power that can be at work within us.

2 Corinthians 13:3 Christ is not weak in his dealings with you but is a mighty power within you.

May His power be alive within you!

He Wants to Give Us New Life

HE WANTS TO GIVE US NEW LIFE

Here is another thing that God wants to do within us. He wants to place His new life within us.

Colossians 3:10 You are living a brand new kind of life that is continually learning more and more of what is right, and trying constantly to be more and more like Christ who created this new life within you.

God wants to place new life within us. This new life is His life that He wants us to experience. Jesus says that He is the life and we need His life within us.

 John 10:10 I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

HE WANTS TO GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE

God also wants us to know the eternal life that He has for those who will choose Him. Our bodies are dying and earthly life is temporary, but because God lives within us, our spirits can live eternally. This is a gift that God wants to give us.

Romans 8:10 Yet, even though Christ lives within you, your body will die because of sin; but your spirit will live, for Christ has pardoned it.

Deep within each one of us we can know that God has placed something that is eternal.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What God Wants to do Within Us

God wants to work within you and me.He is a gracious father who wants to constantly be at work within us.

Philippians 2:13 For God is at work within you.

In God’s great love for you and me, He wants to work in our lives and bring about change. There are many things that God wants to do within us, but perhaps the greatest is that He wants to make His presence and love for us a reality in our lives. The result of what God wants to do in our lives is that we are constantly being changed, and when God changes us, the change is always for the better.

HE WANTS TO REMOVE THE WICKEDNESS

Sin is something that robs and destroys our lives. Sin separates us from God. God does not want us to be separated from Him. As a result He wants to work within is so that the issue of sin will be dealt with and in the process we will be able to know God.

Ezekiel 22:15 I will scatter you throughout the world and burn out the wickedness within you.

Ephesians 5:9 Because of this light within you, you should do only what is good and right and true.

The Lord is gracious and merciful. He is great in kindness and good to all. The Lord is righteous in all His ways and He wants to work within us.

The Blessing

BROKEN HEARTS

Today, your heart may be broken. You may say that if I knew the condition of your heart, I would not be asking this ‘total heart commitment’ from you. But God is the master in handling the broken hearts.

Psalm 51:17 ‘A broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.’

God wants to help us. He wants to come along side and walk us through.

Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.’

God is looking for undivided hearts.

THE BLESSING

There is a blessing for those who will seek God with all their hearts.

Psalm 119:2 ‘Blessed are those who seek Him with all their hearts.’

Let us make the right decision.Let God into your heart.

Psalm 139:23 ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.’

God knows our hearts. We need to love God with all our hearts.

Praising God With All Our Hearts

WHAT IS IN OUR HEARTS IS EASY TO SEE.

Luke 6:45 ‘The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil that is stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.’

What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of what is in our hearts. If I really love God, then you will hear about it. It will emerge from the way I speak. What is stored up in your heart, today?

Luke 12:34 ‘Where your treasure is there will your heart be also.’

If we are going to love God we need pure hearts.

PRAISING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS.

This is something else we must do with all our hearts.

Psalm 9:1 ‘I will praise you, O Lord, with all me heart.’

Praise is a very important part of our lives.

Psalm 111:1 ‘I will extol the Lord with all my heart.’

Definition of extol; – To praise highly or to glorify.
If you are battling in some area, then it is time to start praising God. Praise is one of the tools to overcoming. We are called to praise God with all our hearts.

Doing What We Do With All Our Hearts

DOING WHAT WE DO WITH ALL OUR HEARTS.

Colossians 3:23 ‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for me.’

This puts a very different light on things. We are encouraged to do what we have to do with all our hearts. This speaks about our day-to-day lives. We can do what we do as unto the Lord. If our everyday lives can be as though we were working for God, then every aspect of our lives can become an example of our love for God. This can make even the most mundane task something special. If we can apply this too our lives then we can apply it to other areas of our lives.

LOVING GOD IS A COMMAND.

Joshua 22:5 ‘But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all you soul.’

How do you follow a command? By making the decision. Our love for God needs to be total, involving our whole being.

Deuteronomy 6:5 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.’

This effects how we should seek Him. This effects how we should fear Him. This effects how we should obey Him. This effects how we should love and serve Him.

Let us make this decision that we are going to love God!

Serving God With All Your Heart

SERVING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS

Joshua 22:5 ‘But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, ….. , and to serve Him with all your heart and with all you soul.’

God wants us to serve Him with all our hearts. God is not into half-hearted commitment. God is looking for total involvement and total commitment. He needs to have first place in our lives. Number one on the priority list. God needs to become an consuming passion. We need to love and serve God with all our hearts.

WITH ALL YOUR HEART.

What does this mean? If we say that we must do something with all our hearts, what are we speaking about? It means that we give everything that we have got. God has got our full attention. He becomes the focus of our lives. From the seat or center of our secret thoughts and emotions we make our focal point God. God becomes our hub. Everything else moves around that main thing.

With All Your Heart

Our hearts are a very important element in our lives. I am not talking about our physical hearts. I am talking about one’s innermost character, feelings, or inclinations The central or innermost part. The center of our being. This is the part that God is interested in. He is watching our hearts. The Bible gives clear indication of the role our hearts have to play.

LOVING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS.

God is looking for this. We need to love God with a love that is a passion.

Luke 10:27 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind.

How do you love with all your heart? Certainly not just on a Sunday. Our entire lives and our entire beings need to love God totally. God should not just be one of our passions. He needs to be the passion of our lives and everything else will come into priority. Have you given God first place in your heart?

God Wants to Bless You

WE MUST NOT REJECT GOD’S PLANS FOR US.

Don’t get discouraged. God has got wonderful things is store for us. We do not need to fear. His plans for us are far better then the best plans we can have for ourselves.

Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’

Follow our own plans CAN lead to problems. Following God’s plans will always bring success.

IT IS TIME TO FOLLOW GOD’S PLAN FOR OUR LIVES.

Perhaps up to now you have been pursuing your own plans. Perhaps they have brought you success and perhaps they have brought you sadness and discouragement. BUT there is a better way. In fact it is the best way. GOD’S PLAN FOR YOU AND ME. If you have been following your own ideas to the point where they have excluded what God had planned, then it is time to repent. Put the matter right with God and begin to listen for and follow His plan. God has great things in store for each of us.

GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU.

As we endeavor to follow God’s plans, He wants to bless us.

Isaiah 30:18 ‘Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion.’

When we come to the end of ourselves, it is time to turn to God. He wants to bless you and be good to you. Let’s start all over again. God’s plans for us will always be the best thing for us.
