CANOPY OF LOVE
L = Loyal
O = Obedient to the Word
V = Victorious in every situation
E = Exceeding greatness (blessings)
Love (God = Jesus = Word) is the key to success (fulfilling your God-given purpose).
When you abide in love (God = Jesus = Word) then you avail yourself to divine protection spiritual understanding, wisdom, grace and faith. Your life explodes with blessings and you receive the desires of your heart.
“You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. For you send blessings of good things to meet him. You set a crown of pure gold on his head. (Psalm 21:2-3)
“For the king trusts, relies on, and is confident in the Lord, and through the mercy and steadfast love of the most high he will never be moved.” (Psalm 21:6)
The king received all of the desires of His heart and blessings because he trusted in, relied on, and was assured in the Lord. He knew without doubt that the promises of God were true and they would be fulfilled. He knew this because the Word says so, and through his experience – he got the desires of His heart, and received good blessings.
Now in order for this to happen, what kind of relationship must be the king have had – a close relationship with Jesus Christ founded on love and faith. The closeness is reflected in the degree of trust the king had for the Lord.
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, but acknowledge him in all of your ways, and he will direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-7)
“The just shall live by faith.” (Habbakuk 2:4) It is impossible to please God without faith.”
The king had constant faith, and was never moved from this faith – never allowed doubt to come in. Sometimes we allow doubt to come in by what other people say and what they think of us. But the most important thing is what does God think of me? Are my thoughts and actions pleasing Him.
The whole duty of man is to love God and keep His commandments.
You can’t love God and keep His commandments by pleasing other people because their thoughts and ways do not agree with the Word of God. They are not the same as God’s thoughts and ways.
You discover God’s thoughts and ways by reading, studying and meditating on the Word of God.
