The Power of Feeling Loved (HS006D)

We were made to feel the love of God, not just know it.

Knowledge is great for dissertations, but it is a lousy substitute for emotional groundedness. When the going gets rough, we need to feel the living heartbeat of God's love and life within us. If all we have is knowledge, we often cave to self-medicating the powerlessness or making fear based choices. Neither of those options are particularly useful to God or to us.

This course is designed to address one of the many reasons why our emotions can’t engage with the truth. It goes back to the Garden and the legitimacy that Adam and Eve lost when they sinned. We have been haunted by that loss ever since, and the enemy is quick to lie to us about how to get it back. When those lies are believed and acted upon, it opens the door to generational curses. Some of those generational beliefs and curses may be blocking you from experiencing an intimate relationship with God now.

The class begins with an exploration of the seven foundational legitimacy lies. The enemy relentlessly questions God's goodness. Does He really care? Do we have value? Why did He make us? We look at the wrong behavior that flows out of the lies, and the curses that can be activated. The good news is that for every lie, there is the opposite truth about God’s love! Each one speaks into the core of your value in God’s eyes. For each flavor of truth, I will share a blessing for your spirit to receive it. The final step is to develop strategy to build virtue and activate the blessings.

Emotional groundedness is vital. Where are you in your journey from head to heart? There is power in feeling loved by God. It guards us from the lies of the enemy and it is a transformational force within us and through us into the Kingdom. Let’s lean into this vital and foundational part of the journey so that we can walk in the fullness of joy and dominion.

You are welcome to take this class with your spouse. Our legitimacy plays a huge role in relationships, not to mention the spiritual impact of curses and blessings that come into a marriage covenant. One registration will cover both individuals.

Course Instructor
Megan Caldecourt

Much of my life was defined by trying to earn love – whether it was from God, my peers, or the authorities over me. I simply could not wrap my mind, let alone my emotions, around the idea that I could be loved as I am. I have made much headway over the years, but it is an ongoing journey to rest in the surety and unchangeable nature of God’s love. I believe it is vitally important for each of us to intentionally embrace the process of receiving His love on the level of our spirit. So many of our motives and much of our behavior flow from this one pursuit: feeling loved. How will our lives and our legacy be defined?
