Tear Down the Walls

September 19, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

Faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. —1 Corinthians 13:13

My dad used to say there are no tough nuts for God to crack. It’s because of His incredible love. As God’s love flows through us, hard hearts can be softened. The love of God flowing through us can tear down barriers that may have taken years to grow up.

I don’t know what’s happened between you and your mate, between you and a parent, or between you and a child. I do know, however, that if you’re a child of God, you can learn to love that person with the love of God. That may be exactly what is needed to tear down those walls.

I believe there’s not a marriage that can’t work. You may say, “You don’t know about my marriage.” You’re right, I don’t. But I know a little bit about the love of God. If you have God’s love in you, then it is possible for you to love that person without failing.

Make it Personal

Do you have a relationship you feel can’t be healed? Pray that God’s love would tear down the walls between you and the other person.
