Today Reminder – 07 February 2014 (Day 5 – Love is…)

A reminder for today
Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD. (Psalm 27:14)

Love is patient… 

David writes that he will be confident that he will see the Lord’s goodness and that the Lord must teach him to live and not fall into the hands of the enemy. When we love we must love with patience. Love is not something that is cheap and quick. Love is something that is everlasting and love must never die. God does not love you and then stops loving you. God loves us even when we turn our backs on Him and He still fights to turn us back to Him.

Love should be strong enough to keep us patient and make us determined to see it bloom and blossom.  To be patient with the ones we love means that we will accept each other’s faults and give them time to learn from their mistakes. In this patience we must love to grow and not to destroy. 

When love is patient it learns and in learning we will know what are the things that keep our love strong and what are the things that create stumble blocks in our relationships. Love is not supposed to hurt nor is love supposed to be irritated and angry. Real love overcomes these pitfalls that the enemy creates and real love is patient to allow growth and change in those areas. 

Unfortunately love is not a one way thing, it is a two way thing and patience in love must come from both sides. This type of love must be brave and courageous to withstand the storms of life together and to overcome the hassles we have in our everyday lives.  

I believe that if we love with patience in the same way God shows us how to love we will see more of the Lord’s goodness in our lives. Love starts as a feeling and an emotion but love remains when we fight together on our knees in prayer so that we do not fall into the hands of the enemy but so that we live a life loving each other and loving the Lord our God together. When God is the centre of our love, our love will withstand any storm.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
