For many years the Lord has given me the unction to say – I love you beyond measure. I’ve written it on cards, I’ve spoken it out and declared it over every single person that I’ve been called to pray for. In every situation I have watched the Lord bring heaven to earth – His way – beyond measure. He is a Beyond Measure Father God!!
It wasn’t until just recently that I have the revelation of what the Lord was giving me the unction to say. In obedience I’ve held this beyond measure in my heart and spoken it out and written it down and now I know…
When I love beyond measure – I’m loving with His love – because He has given me a measure of faith and a measure of love – but I choose to trust in, rely on, boast in His measure – which is beyond measure – you cannot measure Adonai – He is beyond measure – limitless – He who created the universe and all that is therein. I choose to love all people beyond measure – beyond myself -with ADONAI who is LOVE.
See – we measure people as people – we size people up and it’s our human nature to judge and withdraw our love from them because they do not behave in the manner in which we think that they should.
It’s a choice to Love Beyond Measure – this speaks of loving beyond our own human perspective and reaching out to ADONAI our ELOHIM with childlike faith saying DADDY – I must rely on and depend on YOUR LOVE because I can’t love anymore with these human limitations. Yeshua told us in Matthew 5:44 to Love our enemies, bless them that curse us and do good to them that hate us, pray for them which despitefully you and persecute us and in verse 45 He said that we may be the children of our Father which is in Heaven..
You can always identify God’s true children because they Love with His Love, rely upon His Love rather than their own. We know that there is no way that we could do this with our love – True reliance on God, not self, yielding to Yeshua’s commandment to Love in Matthew 22:36-40. Love beyond measure. Step outside of your own box, your human limits and yield into His LOVE – HE who is LOVE, HE who created LOVE – His Limitless Love – Beyond Measure.
See, I can’t love you or anyone with my own love because my love will fail. But His love never fails, never gives up, is always there for anyone who is willing. I’m willing to Love with His Love, so I love each of you Beyond Measure with His Love. Please read each of the scripture references below, and tap into His Beyond Measure. It just might change your entire life.
Psalm 147:5 (VOICE) 5 Our Lord is great. Nothing is impossible with His overwhelming power. He is loving, compassionate, and wise beyond all measure.
Matthew 5:43-45 (KJV) 43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Matthew 22:36-40 (KJV) 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
2 Corinthians 10:10-18 (Complete Jewish Bible) 10 Someone says, “His letters are weighty and powerful, but when he appears in person he is weak, and as a speaker he is nothing.” 11 Such a person should realize that what we say in our letters when absent, we will do when present. 12 We don’t dare class or compare ourselves with some of the people who advertise themselves. In measuring themselves against each other and comparing themselves with each other, they are simply stupid. 13 We will not boast about what lies outside the area of work which God has given us; rather, we will boast within our assigned area, and that area does reach as far as you. 14 We are not overextending our boasting as if we had not reached as far as you; for we did come all the way to you with the Good News of the Messiah. 15 We do not boast about the area in which others labor; but our hope is that as your trust grows, we will be magnified in your midst in relation to our own area of work, so that we can go on to do even more, 16 namely, to proclaim the Good News in regions beyond you. Our hope is not to boast about the work already done by someone else. 17 So, let anyone who wants to boast, boast about ADONAI;l 18 because it is not the one who recommends himself who is worthy of approval, but the one whom the Lord recommends.
2 Corinthians 10:10-18 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 10 For they say, “His letters are weighty and strong, but his [a]personal presence is unimpressive and his speech contemptible.” 11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present. 12 For we are not bold to class or compare ourselves with [b]some of those who commend themselves; but when they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are without understanding. 13 But we will not boast beyond our measure, but [c]within the measure of the sphere which God apportioned to us as a measure, to reach even as far as you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for we were the first to come even as far as you in the gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting beyond our measure, that is, in other men’s labors, but with the hope that as your faith grows, we will be, [d]within our sphere, enlarged even more by you, 16 so as to preach the gospel even to the regions beyond you, and not to boast [e]in what has been accomplished in the sphere of another. 17 But HE WHO BOASTS IS TO BOAST IN THE LORD. 18 For it is not he who commends himself that is approved, but he whom the Lord commends.
Mark 7:37 (KJV) 37And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
God’s love is limitless there is no way to measure Him. He is LOVE. 1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
He expressly told us what Love is and how love behaves. We can all try as hard as we can to be patient, kind, not jealous, never bragging and never arrogant, never acting unbecomingly, never seeking our own, never being provoked and not taking into account any wrongs suffered, not rejoicing in unrighteousness, but rejoicing with the truth, bearing all things, believing all things, hoping all things and enduring all things as in our template for How to Love –
1 Corinthians 13:4-10 (NASB) 4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 [a]bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of [b]prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.
We must make the declaration to yield into His Love. Let’s declare this out loud to the LORD together in the name of Jesus.
Father God, Adonai our Elohim – we come before You today in Yeshua’s name – We lay down our way of love at Your feet and ask for Your LOVE to completely overflow within us. Father, You are LOVE and we make the decision today to LOVE Beyond Measure with Your LOVE. This is not something that we can do within ourselves. We will Boast in You, Love others within the Unlimited Measure of Love that You are. Father forgive us for seeing other people from our own perspective, our measures fall short every time and help us to see everyone from Your perspective and Love them with Your Love. We declare and decree Victory in You Father God and take a big step forward on our Loving Beyond Measure Journey. Thank You for Loving us Father God in the mighty and matchless name of Yeshua. Amen
