The Lord Loves
“I have loved you,” says the Lord…. —Malachi 1:2
When I read this, I was overcome with a feeling of warmth. I literally felt a physical reaction. “I have loved you,” says the Lord. I could have stopped reading right there. Can you imagine it? Do you know—really know—what that means? This truth enriches my soul. It refreshes me.
Frequently stated and often misused, “love” is not contained by words. It can manifest in ways that will leave you speechless. It instigates reciprocity. Can you recognize it? Can you receive it? Will you allow yourself to be a manifestation of it?
“I have loved you”, says the Lord. Love Him back. His love will bring warmth to your soul.
