WOTD: Give a Love That Liberates – Joyce Meyer

Love is liberating. It provides a sense of belonging and a sense of freedom. Love does not try to control or manipulate others or reach fulfillment through the destiny of others.

Jesus said that He was sent by God to proclaim liberty. As believers, that is what we are meant to do also, to free people to fulfill God’s will for their lives, not to bring them under our control.

I have discovered that trying to make people do what I want them to do closes the door for God to speak to their hearts. We need to release the people in our lives to be all they can be for God’s glory, not our own.

Set people free and they will love you for it. Don’t be manipulative. Instead, learn to let God be in control of their lives.

A person who has great love is one who is able to release people and things. Today, don’t be a person who controls, but one who freely gives the liberating love that only comes from God.

Prayer Starter: God, I want the love I give others to be the same liberating love that You give. I give up my desire to control and manipulate. I will simply love those You put in my life and entrust them to You.
