LET GOD LOVE YOU

MATURING WISDOM


Let God love you. It’s one of the greatest needs among believers. We beat ourselves up because we feel like we never measure up. It takes time to come out from under the Law where you are not basing the Father’s love for you on your performance (by Law, I do not mean the Ten Commandments or the Law of Moses, but being under dominion to the Law instead of walking in the newness of life and new nature). This mindset is very subtle. It is not about you, but Him expressing Himself through you.


Your obedience has everything to do with letting Him love you. We are to live from that reality of being loved. The starting point is to let Him invade your heart. From there He can express His love and glory through you. In such a self and “me” and “I” culture it is easy to be conformed to this world. Self screams for attention, entitlement, and a “look at me” attitude. The key to true maturity in Christ is to forget about yourself.


“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)


I don’t get up every morning and say, “I HAVE TO” pray and get with God. No, the changed heart says, “I WANT TO PRAY” and be with God. If you are BORN AGAIN He is your Father and He loves you the most, and He knows everything about everything. Think of the great privilege of dining with such a One.


When I was 3-years old I couldn’t drive a car. Now it’s so second nature. Such is maturity in the Lord. Be at peace with where you are. The Father loves you just the same. A 3-year old is not conscious of his immaturity. Don’t try to be mature. Just let the Father love you and invade your heart. Pure obedience comes from this position and heart posture.


MAKE HIM YOUR ALL SUFFICIENCY


Most believers who’ve “accepted” Jesus know very little about His sufficiency. They may be born again but remain in a carnal state because they have not really surrendered their lives to Him. It’s still all about them. They continually sacrifice the life of Christ in them on the altar of their own will. Life is in their spirits, but they are on the path of death because they are living for themselves.


“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Romans 8:6)


The Father’s love doesn’t flow to you because you get your life together. That’s works, and another subtle form of still being under the Law. We must learn to live from our new nature — from the inside out.


This is the best life. It is where the glory is found. It is where joy and pure delight flows from within. Learning to abide in the Father’s love is the great secret of a truly satisfying life. You are complete in Him. The Father doesn’t love you any more because you measure up perfectly to His standards. Bert Farias must surrender to God until there is no more Bert Farias, but it’s Christ in him, the hope of glory.


This is truly the most blissful life. Enter into that blessed rest.


Live from the position of being loved.



Bert Farias' books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. His recent five-book bundle, written under a fresh anointing, is a forerunner of what the Lord is doing in His church today. His newest release, Turning Your Trials Into Gold, is a powerful testimony of how God raised up Bert and his wife Carolyn from a sick bed and near death.

Thank you Bert for your wisdom on this matter.

This post seems to me to be very important, and powerful as to truths we need to hear! The concept, and necessity of giving one's life entirely over to God (Rom. 12, 1,2) needs to be revisited in our day, you'd probably agree! It spoke to me, what you said, about accepting yourself where you are in Him (so not to focus on myself, but more-so learning to die to myself)...so that I can abide in His love! I especially appreciate your second, and last paragraphs -- it's a sweet message; and some of your wording reminds me of Norval Haye's writings, which are alive, full of faith, yet simple, and straightforward -- thank you!
