Incalculable Affection

| Vicky Bentley’s Blog

Psalm 139:17-18: How precious are Your thoughts toward me, O God! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake I am still with You.


·         Incalculable affection: remember our prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21?

o   His ways and doings are outside of our ability to understand…
o   There is coming a day when we will see Him face to face and we will be like Him.
o   Then we will understand fully the depth of His love
o   We will see our very names written in the scars on His hands and His feet

·         No human love comes close to His love.
o   Whose love are you craving right now?
o   Fall more in love with Jesus and
o   I guarantee His love in you will draw them closer to you. Because
o   God’ love is irresistible.

·         When you are in love with Jesus it shows, people will be drawn to you because they see something in you they want for themselves.
o    John 6:44: No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him.
o   1 John 4:12: No one has seen God at anytime. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.

Isaiah 55:9: For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.


Isaiah 49:15-16: Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.


1 John 3:1-2: Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! … Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.  

1 Corinthians 13:12,18: For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.


Psalm 121:3-4: …He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
