One of the greatest desires of all human beings is to feel love and acceptance. The enemy of your soul would like you to believe that you are unloved and that you have to look outside to experience love and acceptance. When we choose to believe the lie that we are unloved, we use performance to receive it.
Performance may include the pressure to prove yourself at work, to a friend, a parent or family member. Performance driven love is not lasting and requires you to compare yourself with others struggling and striving to be someone you were never created to be.
Today remove the lie that you are unloved and know that God’s love for you is unconditional. You don’t have to perform to receive it! God is love, you are loved. As you rest in and knowing this truth, watch how the desire for outside approval or acceptance dissolves and you begin to walk in peace and not performance.
Today I am grateful for the love of God. He loves me and you unconditionally, so much so we don’t have to perform to receive it!
