enduring love.

This past Sunday, I believe the Lord gave me a prophetic painting and word for this season—a painting of His enduring love.

magnolia flowerAt the very center of the magnolia flower, the Lord showed me His heart. And His magnificent love for us. The Lord is revealing how much He loves us. How very much He loves us. His love is the desire of our heart! We often dwell on how much we love Him, but at the very heart of God is His love for us, His sons and daughters. It’s a love that is:

extravagant … unfailing … a refuge … wonderful … hopeful … forgiving … great … abounding … enduring x 26

(Psalm 36:5, Psalm 107:8, Psalm 6:4, Psalm 17:7, Psalm 31:16, Psalm 33:18, Psalm 51:1, Psalm 108:4 Psalm 103:5, Psalm 136)

The choice of the magnolia was intentional by God. Fossils have been found of the flower that date back 20 million years. An emphasis on His unfailing and enduring love.

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge… Ephesians 3:17-19

Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life. Psalm 23:6 (The Message)

This Christmas, be a receiver of the best gift ever. His love! Really! Let it sink in. How much He loves us! Let me know what you think, as you think on Him.

Only believe!
