Remember when you were a kid, that moment by moment feeling of awe and wonder...  The feeling that your parents were completely invinsible, and everything in life is perfect.  That's what it feels like to love God! Loving God will give you the greatest satisfaction in life.

So why are we so far away from loving God in our day to day life?  It's because we've let other things become more important to us than God himself.  Our job, our income, our self-image... All these things become idols in our heart and prevent us from having pure love, worship and devotion to our creator.  But if we're willing to let go of our idols and spend time in prayer and worship, then over-time that child-like purity will seep back into our heart.

What does it mean to Love God?

God is Love.  God is Truth.  God is Life.  God is present right now and our awareness of His presence should permeate each moment!  We love God by turning our attention to the truth, and fullness of this present moment and worshiping God!  And we do this so often that worshiping God becomes our default outlook.

We worship God for the peace and joy He's created in our life right now.  We love Him for the provisions He's placed in our life right now.  When our hearts are at peace, we can really find a million reasons to love God in the present moment.

ASV | Psalms 46:10

10Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. full context

Insight by t

The root of our love for God is in stillness.  When we don't have anything "todo" can our hearts just be filled with love and appreciation for God and his Sovereignty!  When we're still is our heart filled with joy because of our relationship with God.

When our stillness is full of gladness and contentment, that's when our love for God is complete.
