After the Popcorn Pops –Enjoy it! After you know and believe in God’s love for you, find HIS joy in your day! Joy is God’s emotion that HE gives! Joy becomes the evidence living inside us that we know we have pleased God! Joy is God’s emotion that He gives to us to strengthen us to do the right thing on earth as it is in Heaven!
–Hallowed be God’s Name!
Once we have known and believed in God’s love for us –It is time to love others as God has loved first loved us!
Let God’s love come in you in Over-Flow!
Do NOT LET your heart be troubled –LET God’s love Over-Flow through you!
I thank God for this beautiful day!
But, is the world looking to God as the Creator to see His love He gave to the world to believe?
It is so refreshing to see a person stepping up in good character to do the right thing in this world so willing to through people under the bus so to speak!
Unfortunately, we can’t just say WWJD to the world, because the world has not known Him; and morals have swerved from God's. Yet, we who know God's love as our Salvation and Lord over our life as our Father, we can demonstrate the overflowing love of God to the world! And, allow God to work in another's life -JUST like God is cleaning up my own life!
What I do does not get me to Heaven any more than what I do will keep me out of Heaven -BELIEVING in JESUS as my Savior is my Truth, and Way and Life! Jesus has made my way to Heaven, so get to God's gift of LIFE by GRACE alone!
My choices do set my path straight -I CHOOSE to make Jesus the LORD over my life, but that gives me no place to judge or cast stones, FOR I am not without sin myself! I do however know that God has called me to be a teacher for HIM, so it makes me glad to demonstrate this love that God has for all who will believe!
Set before us are blessings and curses and there is a danger in this life of avoiding and rejecting God.
Will you stay with me a little while longer? I am not here to condemn you. I am a follower of Jesus, who said, "neither do I condemn you, GO and sin no more (John 8:11)."
There is a place of Peace from Jesus! A place of blessings and power and Grace! A place of assurance of faith and completeness in love! A place of wholeness of self!
This place is with God: LOVE!
There is a Joy that transcends all human understanding! This Joy is God's emotion that He give to us!
There is a power in God’s love that overcomes all things that come against us!
God’s love is a spiritual awaking that endures forever; God’s Love is awaiting to become blooming in our mind –like popcorn waits to burst into its purpose as it awaits to become popped in a pan! Popcorn popcorn pops IN something and we find LIFE IN Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord!
Do you know Jesus as your personal Savior yet?
If not, pause right here and pray, because none of this will make since without God's Holy Spirit Revelation to you of HOW much God loves you and has loved the world! Do you believe in your heart? Then tell God the truth of how you feel! Do you feel words on your tongue, then confess them to God and ask God to help you overcome! It is by grace and mercy that we are saved! I hope pride does not hold you back from all God has given you as a gain!
It is our mind, which is our soul that chooses to believe ... what our heart longs to know!
Our mind needs to set firm and steadfast roots in the power of God's love that is in our spiritual heart of Jesus!
Love is 1st given by God –and now we who know and believe in this love from God ... AMAZING GRACE ... we must demonstrate God's patience and humility (strength under control) to the world who needs to see what God's Love looks like!
The world needs God's LOVE!
Blessed to be a blessing
–Let’s discover the power in this great love from God!
Inspired by God, this is what the Lord stirred up in my heart to share with you Today!
I hope this is a blessing to your heart to be raised up in the power of God's love as well!
Today's Word of the Lord
Romans 13:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The Bible tells us what love is: In 1 Corinthians 13!
The Bible in the KJV uses the word charity! ...Would this LOVE called “CHARITY” from God have purpose???
As for me, my answer is YES, Love has purpose!
As for me, I stand on this LOVE by the Grace and Mercy of God! In addition, through my experiences, yes, LOVE from God has purpose 1st to save me; and LOVE from God is still working out a purpose in everything that I do and say … and think for the benefit of God’s love to flow through me to those God brings into my life! This is love –God 1st loved me; and God taught me how to love!
God loves you and me like this!
Would this love (at least in part) be defined as willing to suffer to produce something needed ...?
This is deep, take time seek your answers from God.
Think about what lengths of CHARITY that you would go to for a loved one in NEED! Think about what God and Jesus has done for you and me because God SO loved us that He gave us His Son –Jesus was willing to die for us because of Love! Jesus knew He was qualified!
Are you and me not also qualified in Christ to love like Jesus?
By the power from God, who is our help and shield, yes; we are qualified in Christ to love like Jesus! We are equipped and qualified in Christ Jesus to love like God loves!
God is patient with people; so must we be! Yet, we are not to agree; or argue about which sin is worst than another! The Church in Christ is the only agreement we are called into Unity: Not to throw rocks or pacify -but the AIM IS LOVE!
- (UPCOMING POST on the structure of the Church Uniting in God's Will).
God has demonstrated patience with people in situations in this world:
He paints a rainbow in the sky and remembers His covenant with man!
- (See: upcoming posts on the Rainbow:
- Can we get used to Grace and forget Mercy?
- God remembers every time, but where is our excitement?
- The Aim is LOVE -Don't fall in the Shipwreck of your faith without understanding God's thoughts on any matter.

God is the Judge and God’s Word advises us –as the Holy Spirit on us will direct our paths and keep them straight!
Jesus is our straight and narrow! Because he loves us and has understood how hard this world is to survive in after the miracle of believing to follow God’s Way –Jesus asked God and God has sent us our helper and shield, the Holy Spirit! And, the Holy Spirit brings understanding to us in God’s Word. We don't need information -we need revelation from God!
Our job is to seek! Just like popcorn won’t pop in the bag on the shelf –we need to open God’s Word and read, pray and hear the our message from God each and everyday!
We are able and we are equipped to love others, because God has loved us. This is our debt to God. Will you please God –and read His Word? Like I ran off to the kitchen to pop another batch of popcorn to please my dad, because I SO loved my dad that I wanted to please him. Will you read God’s word just like you did the last time when it was perfect in revelation and understanding from God –when you knew in your heart that God was well pleased in HIS with yours?
“Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water (John 7:3.” Jesus is the living water!
1. God IS Love! We love because we are Created and Made in the image of God.
2. God loves all He has made –you are so much more valuable than birds in the air and flowers in the field! Jesus died for you and rose again so that you may have life with God and abide in this life forevermore!
3. God loves you because you are wonderfully and fearfully made in God’s image! God loves you with a Father’s Love!
4. We love God because God 1st loved us …
5. We love others, because God 1st loved us …
6. … and; we love others, because God loves others with the same love He has for me and you!
“But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life (John 4:14).”
Can you thing of someone you love with all your pure heart? _________________,
Who is someone who drives you crazy? _________, ___________, _________,
It is easy to love those who are good to us, but it takes the love of God to love those with patience and kindness who take advantage of us …
Good moral speaking, is there anything in God's goodness, and within your blessings that you wouldn't give to, or do for a loved one to protect them?
What about to the one who drives you crazy? ____ yes; ________no
This is where our human emotions need checked in with God’s Will!
This is the love God has for you and me; I know I need God’s mercy, help and guidance to do God’s will be done! Throwing stones doesn’t work –fighting evil doings with only our knowledge of God’s right from wrong, will only entangle our heart to anger and bitterness and hinder our ability to pray the prayers God wants our hearts to know and be sincere!
This is the love that God has for you and me; and the only sin not forgiven is rejecting forgiveness, because you don't want to believe God has the power to heal, cleanse, purify ... God IS God; He is sovereign –He has the plan; & God is love; as well as the Judge!
Our job is to listen, obey and pray –and walk by faith; not by sight trusting God!
The only unforgivable sin:
Mark 3:28-29King James Version (KJV)
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
INSERT the problems in your LIFE and FIND the NEED is LOVE, which is God!
Don’t walk out of bounds –the basket won’t be the same. God’s love is not a game or an occupation! God’s love is our LIFE! God’s love is our Duty! God’s love is our JOY! God’s love is our LOVE to GIVE! Jesus is the living water –Let God’s love in His Son overflow through you for your benefit and for the benefit of others who will see!
First we need to believe and receive love (by God’s Power; and by God’s Grace, Love and Mercy that He has given us as Truth, Hope, and a Way to believe); then we need to give love (by God’s power): Have Charity! But we need a clear understanding of God’s message to us! It is not about us –it is about God’s love for the world that He is not willing that any should perish, but rather it is God’s personal will that all would come to Jesus and be loved by God and saved from the penalty of sin. God does has a Soverign will too –John Chapter 14 explains!
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
John 14:5Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?" 6Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. 7"If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him."…
1. We need to pray for understanding in how to deal in situations –We need God’s Wisdom and Holy Spirit discernment of what to do and when to do; of what to speak and what not to say! Wisdom from Heaven and guidance in God’s will comes through self-control, silence, seeking, prayer, God’s Word and Holy Spirit revelation, which is more than just information! We need to depend on the Hope who saved me to be our hope to do what Jesus would do. We need to depend on God and abide in Jesus, who demonstrated and teaches us how to abide in God’s Love!
2. We need to hear the voice of the Lord (The Holy Spirit) teach us through the pages of God’s Holy Book to understand our assignment from God each day!
We need to grasp God's Wisdom and Understanding about what is this great and powerful love that the Bible commands us to remain in and follow? In a nut shell: JESUS is the LOVE that God sent to the world to believe! Now we must follow and abide in this love!
John 3:16-17King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
What the world needs is understanding of God’s LOVE! I hope this popcorn story demonstrates in a simple way of a Father’s love that we can trust to protect us and always provide. This Father’s Love is a love that we can trust to abide in!
Jesus taught me to Abide in LOVE,because God IS love and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him.
Jesus will help you and me find a way in all things ... I know this, because it is true.
The Spirit from God taught me to "Remain in Jesus and he will remain in me. God is Love. Remain in love and you are remaining in HIM. (Love is described in 1 Co 13)."
Isn't the purpose in love ... to give opportunities to demonstrate love because of love?
Isn’t the purpose in love to offer a change for the good for those who are well-loved?
Isn’t the purpose in love to listen to our heart to hear an unchanging Father’s love?
Isn’t the purpose in love to gain understanding that God is longing to protect his children?
Isn’t love God, who is always strong in who He Is; and whom guides us to be all we can be?
Isn’t Love The Creator of all things; that God has demonstrates this love from God that we all need ...What the World needs is love; what the world needs is God and God has sent us His Son!
The WORD of GOD:
1 Corinthians 13 King James Version (KJV)
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
I hope this is a blessing to you.
For more writings about the Father’s Love for you, we offer you this website as the Lord leads. I pray you hear the message of God’s love through Hope in Today Ministries and that we have served God well. To God be the glory –I believe you will! We will be glad to pray for you and stand with you in good faith as God hears every prayer and knows every need before we ask. God teaches us to ask. There is power in the words we speak –blessings or curses; God’s love urges us to speak blessings and ask to receive by our spoken words in faith! Sure of what we hope for and certain of what we don’t see –Faith in Christ, God’s Fatherly love for us pleases God!
God only wants us to believe in HIM and in HIS Son and do not doubt in HIS love for us that has the power of life in the love that has come to us though the death of Jesus who took up all sin on the cross for us; and in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ!
The Kingdom of God has come; and we proclaim this as we pray in the Lord's Prayer. Love in God’s Kingdom is demonstrated though every act of love that over-flows through us in the power of God's Grace! It is to God's Glory that we give love (described in 1 Co 13) and demonstrate the love (described in Galatians 3) that God has loved us with well by grace; and we have been saved by grace –not of our own doings!
