Trusting in Love
Soul Snack 36/12 ... Trusting in Love
If the knowledge of God cascades your entire being it will also flood your heart. Any true knowledge of God is bound to lead you to the knowledge of love and its infusion into the seat of your emotions - for God is love!
Knowledge about God is a different thing. It is a third party opinion formed in the absence of knowing God's presence.
"God is a concept to measure your pain." ~ John Lennon
John Lennon's fatal opinion was not formed through knowing the God of the Cross, the love of Calvary or seeing Jesus' nail punctured hands. Lennon expressed no trust in the Divine and reduced God by his own measuring tool - his thoughts.
To reason God, bring judgements about Him and draw conclusions of Him without knowing Him is to miss, indeed escape His love.
It is only as I know God more deeply that I can get to trust His love for me more truly.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. (1 Jn 4:16)
