Divine Wisdom: The passage, “And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them.” Surah Ibrahim – Q14:34, reminds us that, God loves just everything about us, and refuses to leave us the way we are as He keeps doing things in our Favour. Whereas, man’s love tends to increase with performance and decreases with challenges and failure.
In other words, it’s wrong to think God’s love for us would be stronger or even deeper if our faith was stronger and our thoughts and actions better, or to think God’s love for us would decrease if our faith, thoughts and actions wane.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God wants to cleanse us of the filth of immorality, dishonesty, prejudice, bitterness, greed;
2) While we won’t necessarily enjoy the cleansing and sometimes may opt for the dirt over the good believing that we can do whatever we like, but if we do, the loss is ours; and
3) God’s love always has something better for us;
Teach you to stop confusing God’s love with people’s love!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for the gifts and talents You’ve given me. Thank You for keeping me on track and ordering my steps. I repent today for any disobedience that has caused me to get off course. Keep me close to You always as I set my love on You by Your Special Grace, Amin!
Good Morning and have the best of the week!
