Standing in His Love

Graham Cook once said, “It is His perception of you that must occupy your affections.” This is the very heart of the Christian faith—living a life of responsiveness to God. Jesus said: “I love each of you with the same love that the Father loves me. You must continually let my love nourish your hearts.” (John 15:9 TPT) . This is the key to a life well lived and loved.

It was God’s eternal purpose for us to be His fully affirmed sons and daughters of His love by placing us in His Son so that we could be in the Circle of Love that He has enjoyed within Himself since before the foundation of the world.

And he chose us to be his very own, joining us to himself even before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence.

5–6 For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace—for the same love he has for his Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure! (Eph.1:4-6 TPT)

It’s His unfathomable, transforming love that has taken residence in us which drives out all our orphan-hearted fear. We’re motivated to bravely live for Him and not be moved by our circumstances because we’re standing in this love. John goes on to say…

17-18 God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. 19 We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first. (1 John 4:17-19 MSG, emphasis added)

And this is the message of Josh Baldwin’s latest song, “Stand In Your Love.” Here’s a video clip of him singing it at a recent conference.

Stand In Your Love

Written by Josh Baldwin / Ethan Hulse / Rita Springer / Mark Harris

When darkness tries to roll over my bones
When sorrow comes to steal the joy I own
When brokenness and pain is all I know
I won’t be shaken, I won’t be shaken

My fear doesn’t stand a chance
When I stand in Your love

Shame no longer has a place to hide
I am not a captive to the lies
I’m not afraid to leave my past behind
I won’t be shaken, I won’t be shaken

There’s power that can break off every chain
There’s power that can empty out a grave
There’s resurrection power that can save
There’s power in Your name
Power in Your name

I am standing on the rock
I am standing in Your love
I am standing on the rock
My firm foundation, my firm foundation
