Love the unlovely.
Trust that love is more powerful than evil.
Walk out love, don't just talk about it.

Job 40-42: Now My Eye Sees
Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You;…”
Why does it sometimes take great warfare to open our spiritual eyes? Is it because great warfare causes us to become desperate for God, a degree of desperation not attained with smooth sailing through favorable circumstances? Does a difficult battle teach us that only God has the power to direct our lives and control our destinies? Does the pain of warfare propel us to a position of dependence, driving us to our knees?
Whatever the reason, a season of loss and difficulty does have the power to to open our eyes to the Father, (Who never leaves or forsakes us) if we allow our hearts to be turned toward Him and not hardened against Him.
