Totally engrossed in the real love of God
Totally deep in the touchable love of God....
We can spend many years of our lives out of place--trying to be accepted by the world, burdened by insecurities, buried in guilt, and full of emptiness in our hearts--or we can live a life of supernatural peace in God's presence.
If we lack the understanding of who we really are in Christ, we will walk around with an orphan spirit, but God has adopted us as sons and daughters. We are children of a great and mighty God; It's just that some of us do not realize this truth.
As you may know from previous articles, I have lived for years under the spirit fear and it was not until I was immersed in God's love that the burden of fear was lifted off of me. It was one of the first days that I got to experience constant peace. It was the day God let me feel His love for me.
We should know that it is when God reveals His perfect love to us that we are able to really love both ourselves and others unconditionally. After all, God Himself is the definition of Love. "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love" (1 John 4:8).
“I remember the first time I was knowingly immersed in the Love of God. My entire being was consumed with the love of Father God. I was one of many in an outside congregation of people attending The Call DC on August 16, 2008. I was freely dancing in uninhibited, abandoned worship to God and as I danced, I began to feel wave after wave after wave of the Father's love filling me and totally consuming my entire being.
After that encounter, I noticed that I had a deep love for the people around me--even the ones I did not know-- It was the love of God coming through me. As a matter of fact, I saw a girl bowing on her knees with her head to the ground praying and I just felt compelled to go up to her and tell her, "I love you." That is the pure love of God. He had just baptized me in His love and now I had plenty of His love to give away. I became totally fearless in love.
