God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Romans 5:5, niv
Did you know that you are God’s special loved one? Why would He love you so? Maybe it’s because when you abide in Christ you are so saturated in Jesus that when God looks at you, He sees His own precious Son and envelopes you in His love for Jesus’ sake!
As you and I develop and grow in this love relationship with God, abiding with Him through meaningful prayer and Bible reading, getting to know Him on a deeper level as we live out what we say we believe, He fills us with Himself. And “God is love” (1 John 4:16, nkjv). As you and I are filled with God, we will be filled with His love, not only for Himself, but for others—which includes our spouses or the incompatible people with whom we are struggling. God has promised to pour out “his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”

Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:
• The choice to listen
• The choice to forgive
• The choice to pray
