I believe that God speaks to us in many different ways. For me, I get a word in my head and I just cling to that word during specific seasons. God speaks to me a lot through a single word and through music, and the song Relentless by Hillsong United has been a favorite lately. When I first heard this song, I went and looked up the word "relentless" because I love reading about meanings. I saw it described this way in one place:
When you're relentless about something, you mean business. You're not stopping until you get what you want, and you're not taking "no" for an answer.
I just cannot get that word out of my head! Relentless. I was talking with a friend recently who was feeling attacked and they described the enemy as being relentless. Listening to her describe the evil one like that, God spoke to me and reminded me of what He had been putting in my heart for the last few months.
HIS LOVE IS RELENTLESS. He is never-ending. He will NEVER give up on us. He will chase after us without stopping. He will not take no for an answer!!!
God showed me something very important this week. No matter how relentless satan may try to be, He will always fight harder. And when we speak the name of the evil one and give him recognition for the hard times we face, that just opens doors for him to kill, steal & destroy even more. When we focus on the name of Jesus and HIS relentless love, nothing but GOOD can come from that!!!
As I have walked through a tough 4 months, I'm at a better place that I have ever been in understanding God's love for me. He will never give up on pursuing me!
I encourage you to focus on Jesus this week and His RELENTLESS love. And chase relentlessly after Him.
