Swoon. Have you ever meditated on the luxurious thought that the Creator of all that exists: He who made sunsets and sunrises, rainbows, storms, butterflies, flowers, fruit, colour, scents, animals, bees, rain, humans, earth, fire, lightening, oceans, starfish, hearts, lungs, eyes, feeling, emotion, breath…the Creator of all of this extravagant, incomprehensible, complex, lavish and heart-quickening beauty and life, loves us? Not just loves us, but when you have a relationship with Him, He loves you so much that He will never let that relationship end. Ever. From death to life, you become one who will never die.
Romans 8:38-39: And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
He loves us with a wild, jealous, beautiful, intense love and it’s the kind of love that fills us in exuberant satisfaction and makes our heart feel like it will explode. He is our Warrior-God, rescuing us from everything, alluring us into His romance with His love, protecting us like a Knight in Shining Armour, and keeping us for all eternity. Not only did He make the most majestic mountain, but He places Himself in a humble position, allowing himself to FEEL deep emotion for us.
Song of Songs 4:9-10: You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace. Your love delights me, my treasure, my bride. Your love is better than wine, your perfume more fragrant than spices.
This makes me swoon like nothing else can. Those are His words to those who belong to Him. When we love God, it’s not a bunch of rules. That’s a lie. It’s a hot, fiery love that drastically changes our lives and melts our hearts. It’s a love that makes us alive, and it’s a love that makes His divine heart beat faster as we love Him back. He is a beautiful God worth all of our love. He is our Lover. He is our Rescuer. He is our Warrior. He is the King. And He loves us. And the thought of this stops my heart.
Zephaniah 3:17: For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
Psalms 91:14-16: The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
It’s a Divine Romance with your Maker. Nothing can compare. Nothing ever could compare, and nothing ever will compare to a love-filled, passionate, holy love with God Himself.
