Oaks of Righteousness is a book in the Live a Love Story series that encourages others to walk out Jesus's first and second commandments, love God and love people. However, we can only love the Lord and others with His help. Therefore, as we pursue His Presence and seek Him through the Word, we encounter more of Him. The process by which we seek and find God helps us to love Him and each other better. In this way, we get to live the love story of our dreams and fulfill our purposes on Earth because the goal of everything the Lord does in us, around us, and through us is geared toward improving how we love God and people. Therefore, this book aims to connect your thoughts to the Lord. Read this compilation of varying topics during your quiet time or in a group. Each lesson includes a quick snapshot of information and can serve as a conversation starter with the Lord. The goal is to provoke the reader to seek God and ask Him questions. The teachings can be read in any order, and as you study, remember Proverbs 25:2 NASB, "2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter."
Many hear the phrase "love story" and immediately their minds dart to marriage or romance. Yes, the Father desires to choose a spouse that best fits you. But the truth is, God wants everyone to live a perfect love story with those around them. The Lord wants your family to overflow with His love. And He longs to connect you to friends that become family. The Father's great hope is that His children feel a sense of belonging, and experience His love through those around them. In this way, others may see His love and be saved. However, God is love and we are incapable of showing perfect love without Him. As a result, the book series Live a Love Story seeks to encourage the reader to pursue the Lord in their thought life. Ask Him the hard questions. Get to know your Heavenly Father in a deeper way so that you can experience and then introduce others to His love. Every life lesson that the Lord longs to teach us will stem from His desire to refine the way we love Him and others. And because no one knows the day or hour of Christ's return, today is the day to say yes to God and let the Spirit shape you into a mighty oak of righteousness, a planting of the Lord. Through your weak yes and God's grace, you can withstand cultural pressures to turn away from Christ and arise as a refuge for all those in need. Right now, your Father is asking you to say yes and pursue Him with your entire being. How will you respond?
