As single women God desires us to encounter His excellent love so we will be filled with the fruit of His Holy Spirit as we share the fruit of His Holy Spirit with others. John 15:1-17 tells us to abide in Christ’s love and we will bear much fruit. When we bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit, our joy will be full. Once we encounter the excellent love of God, we encounter the fruits of His Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22 tells us, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
It is the joy of the Lord that is our strength. This is where love is perfected in us until fear is absent from us. Fear has to leave when love has been perfected by faith through grace. The word of God tells us in 1 John 4:18 that perfect love cast out fear. Our love walk is our faith walk. The word of God is the mustard seed of faith that is sown in our hearts and harvested through our faith walk where the impossible is made possible, because we have become a new creation.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.- 2 Corinthians 5:17“
All things in us become new because we have new thoughts, new words, new emotions and new actions that bear the fruit of a new lifestyle. The evidence of us being a new creation in Christ where the lifestyle of the impossible becomes evidently possible. This is how we receive the excellent love of God that brings healing and restoration in the areas of our life where issues of fear try to separate us from the excellent love of God.
An excellent love covers us in our thoughts, words, emotions and actions because an excellent love fulfills our mind, spirit, soul and body. The more we make being in the presence of God’s word our first desire, we are taking advantage of the opportunity to be perfected by His love. Perfected in the way we think. Perfected in the way we speak. Perfected in our emotions that result in new behavior that is birthing us as a new creation in Christ. Only God’s living and powerful word has the ability to make us His new creation (Hebrews 4:12). When we encounter a love that is true, a love that is authentic and a love that endures we have encountered God’s excellent love. Only the excellent love of God will continue to heal the issues of life that spring forth from the heart.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”- Galatians 5:14
