The other morning I told the Lord I loved Him. I do that sometimes. Usually when I say that I hear in my spirit, "Feed my sheep." Then I spend time wondering which sheep and what mix of food to feed them. Then I try to keep my eyes open for hungry sheep. Encouragement is a tasty morsel.
This time I heard a question, "Why do you love Me?"
I thought about this for a while. "I love You because I can trust You."
"Why do you trust Me?"
"I trust You because You know the truth, because You are the Truth. You know everything and everyone and all of our motives. That makes me feel very secure and much loved."
