The Benefits of Loving God

BECAUSE HE HATH SET HIS LOVE UPON ME, THEREFORE WILL I DELIVER HIM: I WILL SET HIM ON HIGH, BECAUSE HE HATH KNOWN MY NAME. HE SHALL CALL UPON ME, AND I WILL ANSWER HIM: I WILL BE WITH HIM IN TROUBLE; I WILL DELIVER HIM, AND HONOUR HIM. WITH LONG LIFE WILL I SATISFY HIM, AND SHEW HIM MY SALVATION
(Psalm 91:14-16).

Pay attention that the Most High does not treat everyone the same.  Note that there are special privileges for those who set their love upon Him: for those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High…for those who make the Lord God their hiding place…for those who acknowledge God in everything they think, say, and do.  Those shall call upon Him when they feel afraid, alone, or rejected, and He will answer them.  He will make His Presence known to them during their troubled times of sorrow and despair.  He will deliver them.  He will honor them.  He will save them.

IF YE ABIDE IN ME, AND MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, YE SHALL ASK WHAT YE WILL, AND IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO YOU”
(John 15:7).

Notice that the Lord God does not treat everyone the same.  Note that there are special benefits for those who abide in Him and allow His words to abide in them: for those who continue to do what is right despite adversity…for those who remain fixed on God’s Truth, instead of having fellowship with the lies of the father-of-lies…for those who endure their pain by surrendering it to the Lord Jesus Christ.  They will ask whatever they wish, and it will be done for them.

OH HOW GREAT IS THY GOODNESS, WHICH THOU HAST LAID UP FOR THEM THAT FEAR THEE; WHICH THOU HAST WROUGHT FOR THEM THAT TRUST IN THEE BEFORE THE SONS OF MEN!
(Psalm 31:19).

Take note that the Everlasting Father does not treat everyone the same.  Note that there are special advantages for those who trust in Him—for those who rely on the Character, Ability, Power, and Truth of the Perfect Father.  They will receive the Goodness, which the Perfect Father has prepared for them since the beginning of time.

If you have relied on the Character, Ability, Power, and Truth of the Perfect Father, God wants to honor you, deliver you, and answer you, but you need to call upon Him. You need to ask Him for His help. For what situation in your life do you need help from the living God? And for you who have not set your love upon God to honor Him and trust Him, yet, it is not too late to start, today.

PRAYER: Sovereign God, today, I come to You to set my love upon You—to rely on Your Character, Ability, Power, and Truth. Today, I come to seek You in my trouble. Today, I call upon You to deliver me, to honor me, and to show me Your salvation. How abundant is Your Goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You.

Maintain an Awareness

The Lord Jesus has always lived His Life for God, the Father. When we invite Him to come live HIS LIFE in us, He will live it for God, the Father, in the same way He has always done.
