Lesson 6 Chapter 7 Romanced

Remember when Jesus calls Himself our Bridegroom?  This is the most intimate of all metaphors Jesus chose to describe His love and longing for us and the relationship He invites us into.  What can be more joyful than getting to know one another, celebrating each moment together.  Someone who is deeply committed to us, that we feel in their acceptance of us, that therefore we can share the deepest part of ourselves.  The story of your life is also the story of the long and passionate pursuit of your heat by the One who knows you best and loves you most.

God's romance towards you is immensely personal.  It will be as if it has been scripted for your heart alone  It is hear we can ask God, "Do you love me?  May I have a whale, or a starfish or a butterfly?"  Is this question hard for you to even ask God.  There is no feeling better in the whole world than to have prayer answered in such a way you know it was God alone, He heard you, and answered you back.

God delights in revealing Himself to those who seek Him with all their hearts and He loves to reveal His heart to us again and again.

Jeremiah 31:3  I have loved you with an everlasting love.
And it really is true....the God of the universe wants us to spend all eternity with Him...that's how important we are to Him!  Not to mention He allowed His only son to be sacrifice for sins to do this!
Now that is amazing love!

God has made women for romance...her heart comes alive and she becomes radiant.  When she is not being pursued she is like a flower without water.  God wants to heal us through His love.  His heart towards us is not one of disappointment or disapproval  but of one who sees your potential and what you need to help you flourish into that person you were created to be.

It can be such a revelation that God wants our love.  We have to fight the busyness of life to spend time with God.  We can't love someone we don't know.  Sure we can always find sometime to pray but when do we listen to His voice.  He speaks to us through His Word.  Ask Him for help to create the time you need and ask Him to reveal His self to you.
