Revelation 2:4 (Amplified Bible)
But I have this [one charge to make] against you: that you have left (abandoned) the love that you had at first [you have deserted Me, your first love].
Do you remember how you felt when you first became born again and were so in love with Jesus that you had to tell everyone? Most likely, however as time went on, the cares of this world began to wear you down and your joy began to diminish. Rather than asking God for help, you tried to do everything in your own strength. Eventually, you felt too overwhelmed to read the bible, go to church or pray.
That’s how separation from God begins. All the devil needs is the slightest crack in your foundation to get a foothold, which unchecked becomes a stronghold; and your spiritual life, health, finances, and relationships begin to suffer. This is the beginning of the end that Satan has planned for you. (John 10.10)
My husband, Creflo, says that whatever you give your attention to is what you will desire. Begin to read the Word every day,whether you feel like it or not; it strengthens your spirit. Go to church to get fed the Word at least twice a week. Rise earlier to spend time talking and listening to God.
Though at first you may not feel like doing these things your desire for the things of God will return and your love for Him will grow. Your heart will once again overflow with love for the Lord.
Have a nice week everyone!!
