Understand God's love for YOU!

Last time we covered some of what God's Word says about His unchanging character. We saw that God is LOVE and in Him is no darkness or wickedness at all.  Today I want to share on God’s love for you.
Did you know that God doesn’t just want to know that He loves you But He also wants you to EXPERIENCE His love?  You are His child and as His child you can partake, which means to share in or take part in and grow up in a full revelation of His love for you personally.
Look at what His Word says…
May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! Eph 3:17-19 (Amp)
Remember always that He is your loving Heavenly Father who longs to have open fellowship with you.  The word Fellowship is synonymous with the word Communion and means companionship, intimacy but most importantly joint participation!  It is not much fun when any relationship is one sided, so in order for you to grow closer to the Lord I encourage you to spend time getting to know Him.  This comes from meditating on His Word and also time resting in Him, where you learn to hear His voice and then line up what you hear with the truth in His Word.
I therefore encourage you to take this scripture in Ephesians and mediate upon what it says until you do not just KNOW that God loves you but you start experiencing His Love for yourself!
