Through the power of the Holy Spirit I pray this post will provoke change in your thinking, just as this concept did for me. I have never been the same since He dropped this into my spirit.
This is a part of a 3-post series.
- This world was born IN love, THROUGH love, FOR love (read this first)
- Marriage – in, through, for love (read second)
- You have been regenerated (born) again (read last)
I have an even more exciting message for those who have been through difficulties in their life and don’t feel that they were born in love, or don’t feel that their parents wanted them.
You were born IN God’s love
The idea for you to exist is God’s own idea. God personally chose YOU before this world began.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us – Eph 1:4
He prepared a path for you in life, a path that no one but YOU can walk.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. – Eph 2:10
You see, God showed me that you and I were formed IN His desire for love. It doesn’t matter if you natural birth was by accident or rape or whatever, God Himself formed you just as He formed Adam. Your spiritual birth was planned IN God’s desire to love you and be loved by you.
You were born THROUGH God’s love
God personally formed you, like He formed Adam, in your mothers womb
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. – Jer 1:5
It doesn’t matter how your conception happened, God Himself formed you and me. We are born again of the Holy Spirit
23You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God. – 1 Peter 1:22-23
Not only did the idea of you and I existing come from God’s own desire, but we actually came about because He formed us in our mother’s womb. We were literally born THROUGH His love.
You were born FOR love
And we were born FOR love, because He desires to love us, He wants us to learn to love HIm – and His command is for us to love one another.
If your parents didn’t want you, it doesn’t compare to the truth that you were born again… IN the love of God, THROUGH the love of God, FOR a love relationship with God.
