The most wonderful word in heaven is love – for God is love. And the most wonderful word in the inner chamber must be love – for the God who meets us there is love.
What is Love?
It is the deep desire to give itself for the beloved. Love finds its joy in imparting all that it has to make the loved one happy. And the heavenly Father, who offers to meet us in the inner chamber, has no other object than to fill our hearts with His love. All of the other attributes of God find in His love their highest glory. The full blessing of the inner chamber is nothing less than a life in the abundant love of God. Because of this we should approach God with faith in His love. As you set yourself to pray, seek to exercise great and unbounded faith in the love of God.
Meditate on the Wonderful Revelation of God’s Love
Take time in silence to meditate on the wonderful revelation of God’s love in Christ until you are filled with the spirit of worship and wonder. Take time to believe the precious truth: “He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love” (Romans 5:5). As you pray, be assured of this: Your heavenly Father longs to manifest His love to you. Be deeply convinced that He can and will do it.
Loving Father, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, help me to “have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is…[and] experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it” (Ephesians 3:18-19). In Jesus name. Amen.
