Beloved - A Valentine's Meditation by Charity Kayembe

Mark Virkler's picture

My daughter Charity is leading a group through our new book, Hearing God. To get everyone practicing two-way journaling during the month of February she’s developed a powerful Scripture meditation on the love of God.

"Truly the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who was given to us" (Rom. 5:5).

I’ve asked Charity to share the meditation with us here as well because I know you’ll be blessed by it. Enjoy!


Being Loved by Love Himself

Valentine’s is a perfect day to reflect on how great a love the Father has lavished upon us!

Since many don’t have the ideal picture of a Father’s love because of how their earthly fathers have treated them, we want to pray into the truth of our Heavenly Father’s extraordinary love for us. Let’s listen to hear what He has to say to us, and feel His heart for us as we ask Him the questions below in our quiet times together.

Holy Spirit, we invite You to breathe on the Word of God and make it living revelation in the depths of our hearts, in Jesus' Name.
 


1 John 3:1

“See how great a love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are...” 

Father God, how great is Your love for me?

What does it mean to be called Your child?

How is your love for me different from earthly love that I’ve experienced?

 


Jeremiah 31:3

“The LORD appeared to him saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love… I have drawn you with lovingkindness.’”  

Lord, please talk to me about Your everlasting love.

Remind me of a time when I felt Your lovingkindness. How did it feel?

How can I experience it again?

 


Ephesians 3:16-19

“I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is.

“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

Heavenly Father, how does Your love keep me strong?

Holy Spirit, please remind me of a time when I felt the width and depths of God’s love. How did it make me feel?

Your love is too great to understand with my mind; I have to experience it in my heart. How can I experience more of Your love, Jesus?

What does Your love have to do with Your power?

Please let me feel how the fullness of Your love and life in my heart completes me in every way.

 


Zephaniah 3:17

“For the LORD your God is living among you and is a mighty Savior. He delights in you with gladness! With His love, He will calm all your fears. He rejoices over you with joyful singing!" 

Father God, how do I delight You? Are You pleased with me?

Please remind me of a time I felt Your love and it calmed my fears. What did that feel like?

Lord, my earthly father did not rejoice over me much. How do You rejoice over me?

God, You seem so happy! Are You really in that good a mood? Why are You singing for me?

How do I experience more of Your lovingkindness and joyful presence?

Please let me feel Your pleasure and gladness towards me, and let me hear the song You’re singing over me.

 

Thank You, Father, for Your love... We love You back!
 


He Is Jealous for Me

Jesus Culture has one of my favorite songs on how crazy in love with us God is - you can listen to it here.

I pray Holy Spirit gives us all a fresh revelation of how Father feels about us.

His exceeding delight in us… His extreme pleasure over us… His extravagant love for us.
 

Happy Valentine’s Day, Beloved of God!

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with over half a million views just on YouTube).


Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
