If you’ve never been to the West Coast, the Pacific Ocean is just a blue patch on a map. You’ve heard about it, and perhaps seen pictures. You believe it’s there, but it could be a myth. After all, you’ve never actually seen it with your own eyes.
Then the day comes when you make the trip west — as far as you can go on land. You watch the sun go down, sinking into the waves, its afterglow burning on the horizon. Then you feel the cool salt-scented breezes. You walk on the sandy beach and finally dip your toes into the water. You marvel at its vastness.
Yes, the Pacific Ocean is real. You’ve seen it, felt it, tasted its salt air. You’ve heard its crashing waves. It is no longer a concept, or someone else’s description. You have experienced it for yourself.
So it is with God’s love. It is one thing to read about it, study it, hear testimonies about it and believe it exists. It’s quite another thing to feel it, see it in operation in your own life, walk in its fullness and know its reality. In other words, experience it for yourself.
God waits to welcome you into the vastness of His love. Discover the marvels and mysteries of His caring for yourself. Don’t just take someone’s word for it.
I will open my heart daily to the personal manifestation of God’s never-ending love.
