The Greatest of These is LOVE

by May 2, 2017Missions


While sitting on the floor of the Kids Justice House of Prayer in Cambodia, I not only witnessed lives being changed, I felt a new love coming in. Love really is the foundation. Without love, there would be no true faith or hope.

I Corinthians 13:2 says, “If I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.” 

As I sat with these children they showed me the signs they made and wear around their neck. I was amazed at what the power of these words can do. These children live in the slums, which is often unimaginable to you and I, yet they smile and constantly want to pour out onto others. That is love.

As God was revealing more to me, He showed me the labels that have been put on them by their world and now what God himself has turned those labels into. For the first girl, provision has crushed out poverty. Please join me as I pray Jeremiah 29:11 over her daily. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”. She is His Love.

The second is a boy who will never be called weak again! Strength is his new label. He is a warrior and God says he is fierce and mighty. Please join me as I pray Isaiah 40:31 over him daily. “But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint”. He is God’s Love. The third girl is holding the sign that

The third girl is holding the sign that says Love. I love that this is the last sign in the picture. Just as God is the Alpha, the Omega, the beginning and the end, so is His Love. This young lady carries love well. She will change the world through love and peace. Please join me as I pray Colossians 3:14-15 over her daily “And to all these virtues add love, which is the perfect bond. 15 Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart.” She is His Love.

I am a Christ love carrier and so are you! Love cannot be restricted by borders or swallowed by hate. Love conquers all, it really does. Love is simple, kind, and it never ends. Daily I will now pray 1 Corinthians 16:14 for you “Let all that you do be done in Love.” You are His Love.
