For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:5
The love of God is the air of heaven, and the joy of earth. You breathe it in then breathe it out.
Breathe in––God’s love is greater than all my failures.
Breathe out––I can rest easy for His love watches over me.
Breathe in––Jesus loves me, and died in my place.
Breathe out––His life for mine, such love overwhelms me with gratitude.
Breathe in––The Spirit of God has freed me from the dark powers of this world.
Breathe out––peace and blessed assurance the victory is won.
Breathe in––God’s love surrounds me, and will never leave me.
Breathe out––I am His, and He is mine.
Breathe in––God’s love makes me what I was meant to be.
Breathe out––A reflection of Him to those around me.
Breathe in––Jesus loves me, and sent His Spirit to live in my heart.
Breathe out––Jesus loves you, and invites you to breathe Him in.
It may take you a number of slow deep breaths to have His love sink in, but I can guarantee even after a thousand years you have not begun to breathe in the depths of God’s love in Jesus.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:17-21
As I sit in my doctor’s office this morning I am going to think of your devotional as I take a deep breath and let it out! Thank you.
Certainly a good time to breathe deeply in His love. I will be praying for you.
This is so perfect for me today! I have been in a slump because of my slow recovery from my knee replacement. I have been looking inward instead of upward and forgetting to be grateful for God’s many blessings!
May God bless you in your recovery.
