Love Collision: How He Loves

-->
It’s the month of love again… well, everyday ought to be a day of love, but we give February a love zone tag. And as always, what better way to celebrate love, than celebrating the love of the master of love Himself… the one who is Love and without whom love would seize exist.

I’m a sucker for Gods love… and excited about this year’s Love Collision series.
This month, I will be celebrating the love of the one who is Love with beautifully written Spirit filled songs of worship.
I love worship and I believe we can’t worship God in the true Spirit and truth way He desires from us, if we don’t know… or have an idea just how much He loves us.
Our views of God has been distorted by religion, we see Him as a big angry God breathing down our backs, waiting for us to fail and eager to hand out huge doses of judgment and condemnation.
The more our hearts are open to the truth of His love for us, the more worship spills out from us. When you know God loves you, you don’t look at the clouds of situations to determine when you praise Him… large cloud, large worship, little cloud, no worship. Rather, you would worship him when things are great and when things seem shaky, because you know His unfailing love is forever and because he loves you, He will never leave or forsake you, that’s why you know He’s with you in the deep of what you’re going through, leading you and bringing you out of it with no broken bones.

Basically Incense, the worship meeting I convene is about Love. That’s the root of its birth; the seed that birth it… My desire is to help fill people’s hearts with the revelation of the endless love of God that births a heart response of true worship.
So we will be burning incense of worship through the month of February…  Songs that speak of Gods love, and songs of worship to Him. Songs that have been on my playlist and helped set my heart on fire with deep revelations of the Father's love.
I pray each song, each post sets your heart on fire with the knowledge of how special you are despite your mistakes, of how much the Father’s heart burns for you and how He will never, can never stop loving you.

Starting with "How He Loves" by Kim Walker-Smith... a song that speaks about the great intense Love of God. 
 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 … and nothing can separate you from this love.


 
-->Not the full lyrics... But portions I want us to note... 

He is jealous for me
Love's like a hurricane, and I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
And I realize just how beautiful you are and how great your affections are for me.

And oh
How He loves us oh
Oh how He loves us
how He loves us oh

We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in his eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking (ha ha)
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
when I think about the way
he loves us

[Kim Walker speaks]
Yeah
His presence. His love.
Is so thick and tangible in this room tonight.
And there are some of you here that have not encountered the love of God.
And tonight God wants to encounter you.
And wants you to feel His love.
His amazing love.
Without it these are just songs.
These are just words.
These are just instruments.
Without the love of God, it's just like we're just up here just making noise.
But the love of God changes us,
And we're never the same,
We're never the same
After we encounter the love of God
We're never the same after we encounter the love of God
And right now if you haven't encountered the love of God,
And you would know,
Because you wouldn't be the same.
You would never be the same again.
And if you, if you, want to encounter the love of God right now,
You better just brace yourself because He's about to just blow in this place
And we're gonna encounter the love of God right now.
So God I speak to all the hearts
And I ask God that every heart be open right now
Every heart be open.
Every spirit be opened up
To you God. To You.
And a love encounter
A love encounter from you tonight
A love encounter from you tonight God.
