Love Conquers All
By Yolanda Dean
Beloved, we are in a season of change, maturity and deliverance. The Father is giving into the hands of His true servants the ability to turn this world upside down. As the Apostles Stephen, Paul, Peter and Silas who have gone before us, we can be used to help change the lives of many, enlarge the Heavenly Kingdom and bring about the coming of Our Lord. Yet, what we must have within us to accomplish this task is LOVE! The love of God constrains, maintains, equips and makes the impossible… possible!
Cece Winans sang a song years ago that went something like this… “Without love there’s no need to prophesy. Without love there would be no blue skies. Without love we’re all just wasting time. Without love everything would fail.” Wow, what a statement! Do you realize that love is the foundation that everything has been built upon? It was love that prompted God to send His only begotten Son (Christ the Messiah) as the ultimate sacrifice, love made the ultimate gift of salvation possible, love has designed kingdoms, governments. Love is what keeps the Heavenly Kingdom operating and open to all. There is absolutely no way that we, the true servants of Christ, can make the ultimate shift that will allow us to carry out the final work of God and enlarge His kingdom without love.
Many are operating in their own strength and according to their own doctrine and this is what causes the work to slow down. Many are allowing themselves to be prompted by the spirit of recognition, domination, control rather than pure love. What, may I ask, does it profit anyone to gain the things of the world yet forget to operate in the will of God, in His wonderful love and lose their very soul? Nothing should separate us from the love of Christ Jesus and nothing should cause us to operate outside of it. Let us humble ourselves, submit ourselves to the hand of Christ and become vessels fit to carry His love to the world.
Today, this very second, make the commitment that everything you say, do and think will come from a place of love. There are souls suffering, waiting on you to come by and bring them the word that will deliver them. Let your heart be circumcised by the sword forged in the fire of love and watch the shift that will take place in your life, ministry, home and community!
Love conquers all!
