Love That Turns Dreams Into Realities
// Kenneth W. Hagin
Most word of faith people today are not missing it in their confessions. They're not missing it in knowing what the Word of God says. They're not missing it in believing the Word. They are missing it by not knowing how to walk in love.
You see, faith is the hand that takes the things we need from God. But Galatians 5:6 says faith works by love. We can't do anything without love.
The kind of love I'm talking about covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8). First Corinthians 13:4–8 tells us this love bears all things, suffers long, and is kind. It doesn't envy and does not think more highly of itself than it should. This love is more interested in what it can do to help others get more, than in what it has itself.
I'm talking about pure love—the love of God. When we have this kind of love, we will not be content to be mediocre, stay in a corner, and barely make it to Heaven. We will be successful even when we're not trying to be!
The God-kind of love will spill over into our jobs, our schools, and every other aspect of our lives. Not only will we reap spiritual benefits; we will reap natural benefits we never thought possible. We will wake up one morning and find that good things are happening to us. Promotions are coming. The money we need is coming. Everything we need is coming to us—because we're walking in this love.
Think of all the marvelous things God has prepared for us. We could sit and dream and dream of them. Dream faith dreams! And when we put the love of God to work with our faith and our confession, we will see those dreams turn into spiritual realities!
I encourage you to get the God-kind of love working for you this month. And let this magazine encourage you as you do. Lynette's article on page 14 will teach you the importance of taking your requests to God. And my dad's article on page 10 will reveal an important door of blessing Jesus has opened for you.
