No fear 3. Refuge of relationships

No fear 3. Refuge of relationships
Psalm 46
Numbers 35:24-25
God wants to be my refuge. Where I go when trouble comes is my refuge.
Be careful about relationships Matthew 22:37-39
Refuge of relationship. With God and others
Have freedom to walk away 5 wrong replacements
1. Things. Can't replace relationships. Fruit. House. Car.
2. Isolation. Have been hurt and are withdrawing. If we stop trusting
people we can eventually stop trusting God. Acts 2:42. We need each
other. Find refuge in the congregation. Wolf gets sheep on the edge
work myself to the middle. Get involved
3. Unrighteous relationships. 1 Corinthians 5:11. We need to separate
ourselves. Don't walk backwards. Get to where you r pointed. Love them
2 Corinthians 6:14
4. Religion. Don't replace relationship with tradition or rules
religion is doing things so u don't deal with what's going on in u. We
need he refuge of God. Power in relationships but no power in religion.
5. Busyness. Just too busy to build relationships. Martha stop it's
not that important. Don't hurry. We worry about things that don't have
a lasting impact.

Loving well. Session 3

Loving well. Session 3
1 John 4:13-
Matthew 5:23-24 some relationships wern't meant to exist Never
minimize power of apology
When we say I can't He can.
John 15:9 remain dwell abide in my love =live continue
Live in His love. We won't love well until we feel well loved

Testy is difficult foe is impossible

1. Let's start loving because we r already loved. Not so we will be
loved. Human love is self seeking we will be motivated by what we can
get out of it
I love------because God first loved me.
We look for love in humans and it doesn't deliver. Get our cup filled
by Gods love. We are perfectly unfailingly loved by God

Genesis 29:31-35we strive for love. If we Manipulate to get it we
rarely keep it. Desperate enough for attachment. Make sure I'm needed
so much.
I can love not because u love me but because the lord loves me.
Some things have to keep a wire on(teeth) some things we may never get
over. Get freedom and don't go back

2. Romans 5:5 learn to love with the love of God. Don't have to use
our small resource of love. Testy have been assigned and chose for us!
God will use them to complete something that's lacking. They will
bring us gain even though they will bring out the worst (keep it out
don't bite the bait).

3 Lets learn to love with insight Phil 1:9-11
Not called to love blindly ask for insight. Something is broken in
testy. We have ppl who can't voice love can't expect them to love us.
Get insight then compassion. If we don't deal with our stuff we will
be testy and foe. May love from arms length

4. God is going to call us to see hard love as an offering on His
alter. 1 John 4:10. Eph 5:1-2. Sacrificial love. Forgive bring it to
the Alter as a gift. Sacrifice rights and grudge I want to hold lay it
down. When we hang on to it we let it happen over and over again.

Loving well session 2

Loving well session 2
Let God love on us he won't do through us what he hasn't done in us.
We will not love well until we feel well loved!!!!
If we could get it down we would free others up
1 John 4:16 amp. Do I recognize Gods love? Pharisees John chap 5
studying is easier than loving. Don't know if love of God is not in
us. We know things intellectually but not in our heart.

1. God is perfect love. Not just a feeling. Not relegated by
circumstance. Nothing we can do can change it. It's not an emotion.
It's part of His Godness. He's just being Himself

Teleios complete to reach it's goal. Gods love is complete in us and
to us. When we stay in fear were not letting God's love work in us.
Not hampered by insecurity or anxiety. To the degree we battle
insecurity or anxiety were not letting God love us.

We are not yet mature in love if we have insecurity and anxiety. It's
unbelief and routed in pride.
2. Nothing can separate us from Gods perfect love nothing. Gods
love is unlike any other love. Isaiah 49 mom give up infant.
