Surely I must have the worst singing voice in the world, but I love to sing to the Lord and make up little songs to sing to Him. One day, I sang, “I want you to know how much I love you!” Know what struck me? It’s one thing for God to know we love Him, and well we should as we’re commanded to love Him! But should we not be fervent and zealous and deeply passionate and totally devoted in our love for Him whereby we desire and strive toward our very thoughts, feelings, words, and actions showing forth an exceeding love for Him?
How tragic it would be to think that we would be so good at showing forth and expressing our love for people, places, and things more than we would manifest our love for God almighty! Oh, let us resolve to love the Lord with every ounce of our hearts such that He looks down from heaven upon us and sees us shining and delighted and singing and rejoicing in and celebrating our love for Him! May He look upon us as we devote ourselves wholeheartedly to Him and to bringing Him joy, delight, pleasure, and glory with ever-growing extreme love for Him! May we love Him beyond measure now and forevermore, AMEN!
Father, teach us to love you each and every day exactly as you desire to be loved – in all we think, say, and do, oh Lord, may you be glorified in our love, love, love for you, my God, AMEN!
“I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.” Psalms 9:2 KJV
