I am a more loving person now that I know The God of Love. He is at work within me when I crucify the selfish desires of the flesh.
A love that denies defeat, that does not listen to the enemy’s lies,
That sees good; but will evil recognize,
A love that reaches out and seeks to show the way,
To do good and to God’s Word obey.
This love is for the Master and from Him also comes
It is a supernatural love bestowed by God’s Son.
His love within seeks to serve and to give.
It is proof that God inside of you lives.
This love desires peace and harmony and hates strife;
This too is proof that God rules in your life.
The dedicated life stands tall and is not of Christ ashamed.
There is no sweeter sound than the mention of His name.
This love is not weak; instead it is strong,
For within, you hold the power to stand against wrong.
Your do not cower in fear when encountered, no indeed;
For you are a warrior that knows the battle was won at Calvary.
Your love for God is so great you would die to say it’s true;
For to love His love successfully, to die daily, is what you need to do
And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
