Conscious love means being clear about your expectations from a relationship and being deeply committed to the relationship and your personal growth. Conscious love entails feelings seen, heard, and understood by your neighbor/friend. You don’t fear opening up and being vulnerable to each other.
To consciously love means to be intentional about the kind of relationship you want to be in, to be deeply committed to growth and to step out of ego and into love. Unlike the course of many relationships, conscious love actually gets stronger over time. If you don’t make a conscious effort to choose love, you will unconsciously choose hate
In studying the love of God, you must remember this: Walking in love is not just “being nice.” Jesus was Love manifested in the flesh, but there were times when He didn’t appear to be “nice.” One time He called the people snakes. He said, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers” (Matthew 23:33). Another time He called a Syrophoenician woman a dog (Mark 7:27). It didn’t sound very sweet, but His words were effective. They got her attention and penetrated her unbelief. When He got through to her, she quit begging, looked Him straight in the face, and said, “yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs” (verse 28). She let Him realize she wasn’t leaving there without the deliverance of her daughter. Jesus then said, “For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter” (verse 29).
1 Jn 4; 16 – in order for us to know that God Loves you, you need to experience His Love for yourself (Paul also talks about this in; Eph 3; 18-19) – be conscious & aware of The Love of God.
1 Jn 4; 16 (And we have known ( are conscious of,) and believed (adhere to and put Faith in and rely on) the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him) – DO NOT BE UNCONSCIOUS ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD, BE CONSCIOUS OF THIS LOVE
Love is a way of life—a life of being love-conscious instead of self-conscious. If you are not being love-conscious, you will always take the selfish route. Being love-conscious does not come automatically; it requires training. The WORD Says we are to practice love. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us (1 John 4:12). As we love one another, God’s Love is perfected in us. Now you can see why walking in love is walking in the Highest Spiritual Realm of existence—you are walking in God and God is Walking in you.
Our job is to walk in love toward one another and walk in this magnificent realm of the miraculous. “Speaking the truth in love, [we] may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16).
In the Greek text, the word edify means “to charge,” as you would “charge” a battery. As we edify one another in love, we pump one another full of power! By speaking the truth in love to each other, we grow up into Him in all things and walk the earth in full stature as believers continually building each other up with the WORD. Jesus is not coming back for a weak, sickly Church that has been defeated and beaten down by Satan. No, praise God, we are going out of here in a blaze of glory!
In Deuteronomy 28, The WORD Says, “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments [now there is only one to observe and do] which I command thee this day…all these blessings shall come upon thee and overtake thee…” (verses 1-14). Then you will be walking by Faith on the highest level there is. God’s Miraculous Power will Operate in you, and you will see great and mighty things take place.
You will be counted among “the new breed” that shall go forth to the world. You shall no longer walk as other gentiles walk in the vanity of their minds; but you shall walk in love even as Jesus Walked — men and women knowing their full rights and privileges in Christ Jesus. You shall rise up, proclaiming the Mighty Name of Jesus, and prepare the Way of the LORD’s Coming!
You can walk in the realm of the miraculous, using the authority of God; but you will never do it until you put God’s WORD first place in your life and walk in love. That is the realm of the miraculous!
