"And this command (charge, order, injunction) we have from Him: that he who loves God shall love his brother [believer] also" (1 John 4:21).

You are God's special child. He told you that in Deuteronomy 7:6. If you will start to act that way, it will begin to change the world. You will go into the supermarket with a smile on your face and grab your grocery cart and say, "Everything that I touch is blessed. Hallelujah! They're blessed to have me in this store today. Glory!" Just go whistling through the store, singing, being special wherever you go.

When we begin to know how special we are and start acting like God loves us, we can win the world for Jesus. Love will spread like wildfire. But it is not going to do any good to go around saying you are a Christian, then growling at everyone.

You say, "I'm a Christian, I'm a Christian," but when a car cuts in front of you, you say, "Come on, dummy, get out of my way. Don't you know I've got to get to church? I'm going to be late for the meeting, you nut."

That's the kind of stuff we do sometimes. Are you ready to grab hold of victory? Just reach out there in the spirit, and grab hold of victory and say, "Devil, you have led me around with lies and fear long enough. I am a special person, and I am going to have victory in the name of Jesus because God loves me, devil, and there is nothing you can do about it!"

God's love inside of you will set you free from fear, and you will not be afraid to reach out to others with love. God wants you to believe it when He says He will do greater works through you because Jesus went to His Father. Do you really believe God will use you? God will give you what you believe Him for. You can't be afraid to step out.

I couldn't even begin to tell you how many times I have stood on the edge of a faith cliff, right on the edge of doing something scary, and God said, "Come on, Joyce, come on. I'll do great things through you. Come on." And I just jumped right out in the middle of it, and God has never let me down one time.

Do you know why I don't have to worry about stepping out and being a failure? Because I know God loves me. He loves me, and He knows I love Him, and through His grace I have laid down my life for Him. If you have done that, and you love God, and He loves you, then nothing in all creation can be a problem to you that can't be overcome.
