*Understanding Gods language of love 💕 *

*His Touch *

💕The same hands that hold the universe cradles you. His touch is undeniable. With compassion, He reaches for you and draws you near. You may not always see His hand tucked beneath your head, but you will feel it. This is the reality of the world you live in. You were created for the Kingdom of God that is all around you and dwells within.

💕Jesus longs to make His touch known to you. He doesn’t simply want you to learn about Him. He wants you to experience His reality. When Jesus comes close, everything changes. When He wraps you within the power of His embrace, there’s no denying it. His all-encompassing love is your confidence and comfort. Protection, health, and miracles are found in the safety of His arms. How absolutely mysterious and beautiful it is to know that the King of kings loves you unconditionally. Fall wholeheartedly into His embrace today.

🙏Jesus, I want to feel your arms around me. Swaddle me in the mystery of your love. I want to rest in your embrace forever. Whisper secrets that have yet to be revealed and impart wisdom and compassion to my soul. Let me feel the sweet caress of sacred love. Hold me tight and never let me go!

📖 “His left hand cradles my head while his right hand holds me close. I am at rest in this love.”
‭‭Song of Songs‬ ‭2:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Enjoy his love divine

Morning devotion 🍽☕🍅

Discovering Gods language of love 💕

Seen

💕There is no one, not even your closest friend or family member, who understands you like Jesus does. He knows you— truly knows the very depths and movements of your heart. The things that stir within your being—the hopes and dreams, fears, and torments—are visible to Him. Not only are they visible; they touch His heart. He doesn’t peer into the core of who you are just to gain information; He loves you and enjoys you.

💕When He gazes into your soul, He leaves behind imprints of love. The longer you remain in His presence, the more you begin to look and sound like Him. In turn, when you search your own soul, you will notice Him emerging through your personality and opinions. You are becoming the person He’s always believed you are.

🙏😭Lord, I’m so touched by the way you cherish me. I won’t try to hide who I am, or what I think and feel, because you see it all. With you, I can be as vulnerable as I want to be and know you understand.
🙏Breathe upon my life. Wash me in your forgiving and powerful love. I want all that you see within me to bring you glory. I yield myself to you without reservation.

 📖 “Let me describe him: he is graceful as a gazelle, swift as a wild stag. Now he comes closer, even to the places where I hide. He gazes into my soul, peering through the portal as he blossoms within my heart.”
‭‭Song of Songs‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭TPT‬‬

🙏Enjoy His love divine

In Friday’s Power Hour Friday 7 February at 7 pm- Applying the Scripture found in The Holy Bible in prayer.   Our heritage is in Christ Jesus.  Its because of Christ who makes us right with God that allows us to come boldly to God and in believing receive what we ask in prayer.  In this program, we discover more through scripture and prayer the character of God- In this case,  we recognise God as a banner in our lives when difficult times prevail.

John3:16

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Your word is a lamp for my feet,
    a light on my path.
