Can this be true? Is it possible for the God of all creation to desire mankind? Does this God we worship and love have deep feelings inside His heart?
There are many believers who don't know that God is filled with desire for them. They don't understand how much He longs for relationship with them and has deep affections for them.
Do you feel God's desire for you? Did you know He has a burning love for you? We have been living too long without feeling God's burning desire in our lives. We have settled. We are content. We are too familiar with a God we hardly know and understand.
"You have ravished My heart, My sister, My bride; you have ravished My heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel in your necklace. How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume than any spice," Song of Songs 4:9-10.
Jesus has a ravished heart! The God of all power, strength, authority, wealth, wisdom has a heart that is deeply moved and impacted by US! He is relentless in His pursuit of us. Not even the angels or the living creatures have the capacity to ravish God's heart, yet we do! There is nothing that will move the Bridegroom's heart more than a heart of love. This is what He is looking for. This is what He most desires. He delights in our love, even in our weak love!
Do you really understand who you are?
Do you realize that the simple yet sincere, weak cry in your heart has more power to touch God's heart than the seraphim (living creatures) before His throne?
God really likes us! He really, really, really likes us. He is the God of burning desire for His Bride. He is not distant. He is interested in every area of our lives. HE LOVES US!!!
Too many believers are defined by their sin and struggle and failure and not with this burning desire of God towards us. Let His burning love for you define you. You are NOT the sum total of your failure and sin. You are loved. You are desired. You are known. You are seen from beginning to end. You have ravished the heart of God. He says of you, "How delightful is your love...."
Ask the Holy Spirit to awaken your heart to His burning love for you.
Ask Him to begin transforming your mind to who Jesus is and how much He loves you; to give you a renewed paradigm of "defining" your life in God.
"As for the saints who are on the earth, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all My delight," Psalm 16:3
"For the Lord takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with victory," Psalm 149:4
Make these confessions:
1) God really, really, really likes me.
2) My words of love and commitment to God are sweet to Him.
3) God loves me the way God loves Jesus (John 15:9).
My loves in life: Spending time in the prayer room; reading & teaching God's Word; my husband; my kids; my little loves; biking & running; being with family & friends
