Daily Words of God | "Those Who Love God Will Forever Live Within His Light" | Excerpt 502
People often say that they have made God their life, but they have yet to experience to that point. They are merely saying that God is their life, that He guides them every day, that they eat and drink His words each day, and they pray to Him each day, and so He has become their life. The knowledge of those who say this is so superficial. In many people there is no foundation; God’s words have been planted within them, but they have yet to sprout, much less have they borne any fruit. Today, to what extent have you experienced? Only now, after God has forced you to come this far, do you feel that you cannot leave God. One day, when you have experienced to a certain point, if God were to make you leave, you wouldn’t be able to. You will always feel that you can’t be without God inside you; you can be without a husband, wife, or children, without a family, without a mother or father, without the enjoyments of the flesh, but you can’t be without God. Being without God will be like losing your life, you won’t be able to live without God. When you have experienced to this point, you will have hit the mark in your faith in God, and in this way God will have become your life, He will have become the foundation of your existence, and you will never again be able to leave God. When you have experienced to this extent, you will have truly enjoyed God’s love, your relationship with God will be so close, God will be your life, your love, and at that time you will pray to God and say: O God! I can’t leave You, You are my life, I can go without everything else—but without You I can’t go on living. This is people’s true stature; it is the real life. Some people have been forced to come as far as they have today: They have to go on whether they want to or not, and they always feel like they’re between a rock and a hard place. You must experience such that God is your life, such that if God were taken away from you it would be like losing your life; God must be your life, and you must be incapable of leaving Him. In this way, you will have actually experienced God, and at this time, when you love God again, you will truly love God, and it will be a singular, pure love. One day when your experiences are such that your life has reached a certain point, you will pray to God, eat and drink the words of God, and will be unable to leave God inside, and even if you wanted to, you would not be able to forget Him. God will have become your life; you can forget the world, you can forget your wife and children, but you’ll have trouble forgetting God—that is impossible, this is your true life, and your true love for God. When people’s love of God has reached a certain point, nothing they love is equal to their love of God, He is their number one love, and in this way they are able to give up everything else, and are willing to accept all dealing and pruning from God. When you have achieved a love of God that surpasses all else, you will live in reality, and in God’s love.
Excerpted from The Word Appears in the Flesh
Has God’s Word Truly Become Your Life?
Man speaks of letting God be their life, but they have yet to experience this. They merely say that God is their life and that He guides them every day, that they read His words and pray each day, and so He has become their life. Their knowledge is so superficial. Many people have no foundation; God’s words have been planted within them, but have yet to sprout, bear any fruit. When you’ve experienced to a point, you couldn’t leave, even if you were made to. You will always feel you can’t be without having God inside of you.
Being without God is like losing your life. You’re unable to live without God. When you’ve experienced to this point, your faith in God will have hit a mark. In this way God will become your life and the foundation of your being, so that you will never again be able to depart from God. At this point you’ll truly enjoy God’s love, your bond with God grows even closer, God will be your life and your love. This is man’s true stature; it’s real life.
You must experience that God is your life, such that if God were taken from your heart, it then would be like losing your life; God is your life and you can’t leave Him. This way, you truly experience God. At this time, when you love God again, you’ll be able to love God truly. It will be a singular, pure love. When experiences have reached a point, when you pray or eat and drink God’s words, your heart will be unable to leave God, you won’t be able to forget Him.
God will have truly become your life. You can forget the world, and spouses, and kids; but you’ll have trouble forgetting God. This is your true life and love for God. When man’s love for God reaches a point, nothing compares to their love of God. Thus they’re able to give up all things and can accept all of God’s dealings. When you have been able to achieve a love of God that surpasses all else, then you will live in reality, and you will live in God’s love for you.
