Every day of this series has four parts: Read, Know, Pray, and Listen. As you walk through this series, I pray that you would be powerfully impacted and that Holy Spirit would take you to a new level of intimacy with Jesus!
Read: Song of Solomon 2:8-14
Did you know that Jesus Christ is lovesick for you?
It's true. He is the Bridegroom described in Song of Solomon, leaping over the hills and running toward you. He is the one peering in at the lattice, calling to you.
Jesus' love is the one thing that delivered me from a life of fear and panic attacks–attacks so bad that I could not breathe. His love is the one thing that truly has saved my life.
And He loves you just as much.
Jesus loves you so much that:
- He thinks about you all the time (Isaiah 49:15).
- He always has the best in mind for you (Jeremiah 29:11).
- He knows everything that happens in your life (Matthew 10:29-31).
He loves you with great passion. His passion for you outweighs the greatest, most passionate love you could ever imagine on this earth. He loves you with an everlasting love …
… a love that will not fail you. A love that will never leave you broken, abandoned, or alone.
His love for you will always keep you.
He gave His life for you; He loves you that much.
Romans 8:35-39 says:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written: ‘For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.' Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Do you really know how much Jesus loves you?
You might not; most people don't. That's why we live with things like fear, doubt, and insecurity. That's why we often feel alone, abandoned, and desolate.
But He really is madly in love with you; and the more you think about this, the more your heart will heal and become whole.
His voice is ever near. His love is always close. He is obsessed with you, for you are His beloved and His bride.
“Father God, in Jesus' name, I know You love me. Jesus, I know You love me. But I don't always feel like it.
Abba Father, please help me to purposefully begin to meditate on Your love and receive it deeply in my heart. Help me to receive Your love for me and love myself the way You want me to, with Your own love. Then, help me to love You back with the same love You gave me. Help me to abide always in Your love. In Jesus' name, amen.”
“Strong Love (Live)” by Jon Thurlow. As you listen, remember what you read from Song of Solomon! Remember that Jesus is your Bridegroom, eagerly running to meet you–and He always will be!
