Hey all! It’s been awhile since I posted anything here. I needed a break from the blogosphere and, frankly, I’ve been crazy busy. But for my first post for 2022, I want talk about my favorite subject—love!
Here’s my point. We will either live our lives according to fear or love. And whenever we choose fear over love, we lose a part of us. Our lives are diminished and our soul becomes fractured. We miss God’s good intent for us, for He wants us to choose to live powerful lives guided by love and self-control.
“For God will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.” (2 Tim.1:7 TPT)
Danny Silk said this yesterday about how fear and love operate in our lives:
“The spirit of love and the spirit of fear are in a war, and they want to counsel you. And you get to choose. This is what makes you a powerful person. You get to choose your counselor, every day and in every situation. And if you create the habit of choosing the counselor of fear, it will become easier and easier to do, to live bitter, offended, judgmental, condemning, punishing…. It has become your character.”
“So, repentance is to turn and, literally, lean not on your own understanding, but trust in the Lord with all your heart. That is repentance. I listen for and choose love first.” (Danny Silk, from “31-Day Wisdom Challenge” with Pedro Adao: Day 18)
This is SO good, and critically important if we’re going to thrive in life. It also goes perfectly with what I was sharing last Sunday at our church, so I posted a video of that message here. Be blessed and may you have a breakthrough 2022!
Oceans of love,
