For since He Whom God has sent speaks the words of God [proclaims God's own message], God does not give Him His Spirit sparingly or by measure, but boundless is the gift God makes of His Spirit!

The Father loves the Son and has given (entrusted, committed) everything into His hand.
(John 3:34-35 AMP)
One day while I was studying, I was meditating on this verse and cried for joy when I realized that God doesn't give us His Spirit by measure. He doesn't give us just a little dab of this and a little dab of that.

Instead, He says, "Here, take everything I've got." Every bit of God's power and love are available to you today. He has all you need, and He wants you to receive it.

Why? Because He loves you. You don't have to be good enough to deserve it because you couldn't do enough to deserve it anyway. You don't have to be pretty enough or smart enough. God wants to give to you because He loves you.

In Deuteronomy 7:6-7 AMP, God said, "for you are a holy and set-apart people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a special people to Himself out of all the peoples on the face of the earth.

"The Lord did not set His love upon you and choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the fewest of all people."

God chose the Israelites to be His special people, and as the Church, we are the spiritual Israel today. So this Scripture is for you just as much as for them. He said, "I didn't choose you because you did everything just right or because you were so wonderful."

He goes on to say that they were fewer than anyone else. As a matter of fact, if you are like me, you probably thought you were worse than anyone else before you got saved.

Yet in verse 8 AMP, God says, "But because the Lord loves you and because He would keep the oath which He had sworn to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt."

That's shouting ground! God says, "I set my love on you, and I told you you're holy. I told you you're special.

"I chose you, not because you're good and wonderful, but because I love you." Do you know what God wants you to do today? He wants you to accept and receive His love.
