A Confession for Walking in Love
“‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” –Mark 12:30-31
If you’re looking to receive from God and enjoy all the benefits of THE BLESSING, one thing is sure, you must first walk in love. It’s one of the two greatest commandments (Mark 12:30-31)! When do you walk in love? All the time. Not just when someone is kind to you or in right-standing with you—but always. It can be tempting to step out of the love circle when someone offends you or has wronged you in some way. Walking in love takes work! To stay in position for blessing, here is a confession for walking in love you can say every day:
Father, As Your Word calls me to do, I love You with all my heart, soul and strength, and I love others as I love myself. Thank You that You are the giver of perfect love, and You love me no matter what. I receive Your love today and allow it to free me from all guilt, shame and condemnation.
As I receive Your love, I purpose in my heart today to show love to others and walk in it each and every day. I will not walk in unforgiveness. Instead, I choose to forgive immediately and take no further thought to any wrong done to me. I speak kindly to others, I am patient with them, I don’t get angry with others, and I look for ways to bless those around me, not criticize or condemn. I choose to be polite and thoughtful in everything I say and do, that it may be pleasing to You.
Thank You for giving me the spirit of power, love and a sound mind!
Love is a choice. When you choose to love others, you are in obedience to God and obedience opens the door to blessing. It connects you to an empowerment that will handle every issue you deal with because God is Love (1 John 4:8) and His power flows through that love.
When you speak this confession for walking in love, you are strengthening your spirit to stay in position for all God has for you. You’ll live a more peaceful, happy life that brings you closer to God. So, settle the love issue in your life and you’ll settle everything else, as well. Receive the love of God, love Him with all your heart, walk in love, and all will be well with you!
