Happy New Year Heavenly Father! A good year has passed and now we look forward to an even better year to come. Thank you for reminding us that we can start each day of this coming year new with you. We need not start where we left off the night before, but start the new day fresh, anew! Thank you Lord. And thank you for telling us all about yourself and the letter L to remind us that you ARE love!
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16.)
Lord, I am overjoyed to be here with you this morning. And it is my pleasure to come before you on behalf of your daughter you love dearly. She knows that you are a God of love, but I ask that you make today a very special day for her where you make it crystal clear that you ARE love … that God is Love! And then we both will give you all the glory for all the glory is yours Lord. All the glory! I ask this all in the name and with the authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
And we ourselves know and believe the love which God has for us.
God is love, and those who live in love live in union with God and God lives in union with them.
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
