He Loves Me, He Loves Me _ _ _?

IDOK DEVOTION FOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2008

Today’s the day, all over the Nation people are saying I love you with flowers and cards and candy and rings and etc. Etc. And I encourage each of you to say I love you today to Your One and Only and to all those who bring smiles to your face when you speak their names.
I John 3:
18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
19 And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.

Do we all have assured hearts today? Do we all KNOW that we KNOW that we KNOW that we are in Christ Jesus and He is in us? What better day than today to KNOW and be assured of our Salvation?
2 Corinthians 6:
1 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
2 For He says:
“ In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Today be sure you have received the love of the GREATEST LOVER in ETERNITY — Jesus the Christ!
John 15:
9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

NO ONE loves you more than Jesus!
I hope you enjoy the Valentine Picture above. Is it one rose or is it two?
Look closely, One is the REAL THING and one is a reflection of the REAL. Let this picture remind you today to be a REFLECTION of your ONE AND ONLY. And earlier you thought I was speaking of that hubby or wife, didn’t you? No – your ONE AND ONLY must be Jesus, otherwise that hubby or wife will never know how good love can be.
At the beginning of today’s IDOK what word did you fill in the blank? You said he loves me not; didn’t you? And there may have been or there may be now someone you love who does not love you in return; but with Jesus that’s never a question. HE LOVES YOU always and forever without fail.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Father, thank You for days to celebrate love and I pray for each and every IDOK that we will celebrate today; that first we will celebrate You and Your Boundless Love for us and then the love You have given us for others. And in that love for others we pray for Margie, Duncan, family and friends; we pray that they will find their comfort and peace in You. We pray for strength and courage in these hours and days just ahead and we ask You to bring alongside those who will help with practical provisions regarding funeral arrangements and other things that Margie and Duncan need at this time.
Protect our IDOK Troops today; keep them safe in mind and body and spirit; bring this war to a successful conclusion; bring Peace to Israel; bring America to Repentance, cause Your Choice for President to be elected, bring revival to Your Church and help us in Your Body tend to the needs of others for Jesus sake.
