TOPIC : THE POWER OF THE MORE EXCELLENT WAY (PART 2)

Scripture : Songs of Solomon 8: 6. Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We did establish yesterday that love is the more excellent way and that it is the strongest force on earth. Today we shall press further on how love is the strongest force on earth.

Why is love the strongest force on earth?


1. Our Christian Life that is largely of faith will not produce results without love (Gal 5:6) (details in yesterday meditation)

2. It is a force that has no regards for boundaries(Songs of Solomon 8:6):

Our opening scripture, reveals that the power of love is compared to the power of death. We all know that death is a force that has no regards for boundary or gender! It comes for both the rich and the poor, educated or not educated.

So also is Love, it is a common denominator for mankind. The power of love can bend the rich and the poor. It can humiliate the arrogant. No matter how tough a man may be, when love comes knocking, he bows.

3. Love understands all languages!(Lk7:5): Language is a medium of communication and as such without a language there’s no communication, whether computer language or human language.

So also is love, it is forceful because it understands all human language and since language has a way of bonding people together even so is love! Irrespective of your ethnicity or race, love is a language understood by all. There is no place love cannot travel to because it understands all languages.

4. It is the only force that kept Jesus on the cross! It wasn’t the nail that kept Jesus on the cross, but it was purely love. I’m sure many people will be surprised to hear this, but that is the truth.

While Jesus was being nailed on the cross, He had power to come down from that cross but He refused because of love(Jn.10:18, 14:31) :
John 15: 13. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

5. It is the force that triggers the anointing! Behind the making of every miracle witnessed in the life of Jesus is compassion that is sponsored by love:

Matthew 14: 14. And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Also the feeding of 5000 people was based on compassion fueled by love (Matt. 14:15-21), opening of the eyes of blind men(Matt.20:30-31). The raising of death to life (Lk7:13-15) and so many other miracles! Miracles flows in an atmosphere of love fueled by compassion.

This explains why in this kingdom, you cannot obtain anything without walking in love! So many persons are fasting for the anointing while neglecting the most important force which is love, the more excellent way!

The results of such fasting and prayers is usually frustration, anger and bitterness. When they see someone walking in the anointing, they are angry because that has been their heart cry. Instead of walking in love they are bitter and that bitterness further closes up their heaven.

In conclusion, you cannot achieve much in this kingdom if you neglect the power of love! It is what will explode your faith and open up the tap of the anointing -God’s ability! Stop chasing power without walking in love, the more excellent way!

Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! Don’t jeopardize your eternity with earthly pleasure. Jesus loves you.

Prayer points:

– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord help me to understand the power of your love better
– Lord I receive grace to walk in love in Jesus name

Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy the release of grace to walk in love all the days of your life.
– That shame prepared for you is overturned now in Jesus name

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
