1 Corinthians 2:9    No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.

Our greatest flights of imagination cannot approach what God wants to give us! He has gone beyond our wildest dreams to create a wealthy place for each of us, and He did it before we ever set foot on the earth. There are countless gifts with our names on them in the heavenly realm, but our eyes cannot see them… yet. How do we receive them? Simply by obeying God’s commandment to love.

Jesus made it clear that by loving others, and by caring for His sheep, we love Him. We’re not talking about the fluffy, romantic, emotional love of the movies, but a steadfast and a determined decision to love with the love of Christ in us. To lose sight of ourselves and give honor and preference to others. It’s that simple. Love frees God to bless us in ways we haven’t yet imagined.

• Because I love the Lord I obey His commands. I love with the love of Christ.
• By faith I receive God’s open heaven blessing in every part of my life and I expect to prosper.
• I know that Christ was more than enough to redeem me and give me a goodly inheritance.
