As you seek to understand what God is feeling, He may share with you the intensity of His heart. When you are around other people, God may sensitize you to the love He feels for them. When you see others suffering, you may feel the compassion Jesus feels.
Genuine love brings obedience to God. God looks beyond your godly habits, beyond your moral lifestyle, and beyond your church involvement and focuses His penetrating gaze upon your heart. Love is the greatest motivation for a relationship with God and for serving Him.
God sees your life from His eternal perspective. He will take whatever time is necessary to grow your character to match His assignment for you.
We should share Paul's goal of leaving a spiritual blessing with everyone around us. Only when we focus on giving a blessing rather than receiving a blessing will we have the quality of ministry to others that God gave to Paul.
How you pray for your family members and friends is important. There is no better way to pray for someone you love than by following the example found in Scripture.
God’s word is absolutely reliable. If we adhere to what God requires, He will lead us to pray for things that align with His purposes, and God will answer our prayers in a mighty way.
