⠀⠀ Friends when I realized the TRUE divine character of God for the first time, everything changed.
⠀⠀ I no longer believed He allowed the abuse to happen. I had confidence in trusting him with my heart as I walked with him through the healing process. ⠀⠀ Everything that God Hates is about protecting who God loves. God loves everyone, but because he loves everyone means he can't love everything. Think about it. ⠀⠀
The nature of God is Light, Life, and Love. Light is the manifestation of his Glory, Love is his expression, and Life is the existence of his nature. You can find this theme in the book of John. ⠀⠀
When there is an absence of Light, there is what? Darkness, right? When there is an absence of Love, there is what? Hate, right? So what you hate defines what you love! For example. Growing up, my mom became an alcoholic. She was a great mom; unfortunately alcohol had its grip. It took over her life, and it tried to scar my life also. It became toxic. I loved my mom tremendously so much, that this was devastating to see and watch. Because I loved my mom so much, I spoke the truth in Love that alcohol was a problem, it was detrimental to her life. I hated the alcohol and I hated what it was doing to her. It got to the point where our relationship severed due to the abuse that came with the drinking. Drawing a line was LOVE. This Love defined my hate for alcohol, not for her. What we are saying no to, strengthens our yes. Like now, I don't drink at all. I was an alcoholic for 12 years. I say NO to alcohol to say Yes to God's comfort, to say yes to creating a legacy addiction-free for my children and their children's children. ⠀⠀
God hate's sin, but he LOVES us. That's why he sent down himself in the form of Jesus—taking the wrath of the sin of this world on himself. So we get the opportunity to live in communion with him currently, Abba Father, who takes us from everlasting Love to everlasting Love. ⠀⠀
Are you having a hard time trusting God in your journey? Don’t be a stranger message me! I was once in there too. ⠀⠀
