Bearing the Fruit of Divine Love

“Grow In Love” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

I once had a dream where the whole world was united in divine love. That love began in our hearts as a golden light radiating throughout our bodies. As that love moved outside our bodies, it became like a fabric that interconnected us. I felt complete oneness with all people, all of creation, and God.

As the dream progressed, my youngest sister, Emme, lost something precious to her. As I asked her what she was looking for, my father, who was standing at a distance, criticized Emme for her constant irresponsibility. Instead of responding to him, I had an inner knowing that his words were not beneficial and that it rather would be more helpful to help Emme focus on a solution. 

People surrounded us, and Emme was afraid someone would steal her precious item. I reminded her that now that we were all one, we wouldn’t have to fear anyone taking what wasn’t theirs. Even more, we could trust others and ask for help finding her item; ultimately, I knew they would pitch in and help out of mutual love for their neighbor. And that’s precisely what happened. Within a few moments, Emme’s item was found.

This dream left a deep impression on me. Oneness with God is a subject I meditate on often, and I’ve had spiritual experiences that have given me a glimpse of what pure oneness with humanity could be like. Divine love is always at the center of it. 

As I sought God for revelation and the practical application of this dream in my daily life, the fruit of the Spirit was highlighted to me. A moment that stood out strongly was my choice not to react to or reinforce my father’s harsh words to my sister (a fleshly response); instead, I chose loving action (a spiritual response). Like a doctor prescribing specific medicines to heal an ailment, the voice of divine love in my heart prescribed gentleness, patience, and peace as a remedy to Emme’s predicament. 

As the Passion Translation describes beautifully, “the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions.” As I’ve experienced in my walk with God, divine love comes in many forms. And through the Holy Spirit and according to the new covenant, God’s law of divine love is written upon the tablets of our hearts (Jeremiah 31:33). As we abide in Christ and bear the fruit of the Spirit, we have an abundant harvest to draw from to remedy every situation in our lives. 

Galatians 5:22-24 (TPT) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

Jeremiah 31:33-34 (ESV) For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

I Am Present In Every Season

“The Winding Road” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Jeremiah 29:13 (NASB) And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Beloved, I am present in every season of your life and fully involved in every situation you walk through. While My dwelling presence may seem more evident during times of peace and plenty, I assure you that I am with you just the same in hardship. I am faithful and have promised to never leave your side.

When difficult days come, seek My face, for I can always be found by those who seek Me passionately. As you rise to the challenge to find Me in each day and every circumstance, you will come to know a new aspect of My nature, another part of My heart. Even more, your spiritual endurance will increase, and you will discover the key to remaining connected to My kingdom at all times.

James 1:2-4 (TPT) My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

Let It Rain

“Windows of Heaven” by Elisa Eaton, Butterfly Mind Designs

Beloved, I call you this day to a new place of awareness. I have touched your lips and called you to speak for Me. Like a wire that is brought to life when it is charged with electricity, so My anointing elevates your speech out of the mundane and gives power to the words that fall from your lips.

Just as I spoke creation into being at the beginning, still I continue to speak and keep existence in motion. I have called you this day that you might make My voice known to those who have trouble hearing it. I desire to speak life through you to My beloved body. I hear the cries of My people and have much that I would say to them. Will you be My voice? Will you let Me flow through you in power?

Remember, each heart that you minister to is like a dry land that is crying out for rain. Therefore, let it rain, beloved. Let the windows of heaven be opened. Hold nothing back, and let revelation fall from your lips as rain falls from the heavens. For as your words distill, so my Spirit will certainly move in power and cause new life to appear.

1 Samuel 3:19 (NKJV) So Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.

Deuteronomy 32:2 (NKJV) Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As raindrops on the tender herb, And as showers on the grass.

Jeremiah 1:9-10 (VOICE) Then the Eternal reached out and touched my mouth, and He gave me His divine message. Eternal One: Look, I have placed My words in you. You will know what to say now, for you will be My voice. This very day I appointed you to speak with My authority over nations and kingdoms. Your word — My word — will have the power to uproot and stamp out; it will destroy and upend. And then your word—My word— will rebuild and plant anew.

This Season is a “Destiny Turn”

The following is a Word of Comfort for those who may feel as though they are turning a corner and have had limited sight over their future. This is not unusual—God is about to do something new! If you have become weary in the waiting—hold on. God is moving whether we realize it or not!

I was listening to the Piano Guys, a song called “Begin Again”. This was quickened to me because I had just watched a video recently by a Facebook friend of mine; she wrote a beautiful tune on the piano for this past New Year’s called “New Beginnings”. The Lord really spoke to me through it, for a “new beginning”, “fresh start”, and “fresh page” has certainly been a word in season!

As I got up to grab a bite to eat, I suddenly heard intercessions in the heavenlies with a melody that was similar to the notes of “Begin Again”. Swept up by the song and the words I heard in the spirit, I began singing along to it:

I will not be moved
I will not be overcome
Create in me a clean, clean heart

In the midst of singing these words over and over in a variety of combinations, I heard the Lord say, “Heads over tails.” I got the impression that the time has come for a reversal of fortunes (Psalm 126:4). It saw this like a coin being flipped over from tails to heads. This felt like a coin flip at the beginning of a football game that is meant to determine who has control of the ball. I knew that the decision was being overturned. I sensed now the Lord has decreed that there are those who have been like Josephs and have lived for a long time as “the tail”; He will now make them the head. And as for their enemies who have been the head and have pursued them relentlessly, God has now ordained that they will be the tail.

Deuteronomy 28:13 (NKJV) “And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.
