When we fall in love with God–it is unforgettable. I’ve always dreamed of falling in love with a man who would tenderly care for my heart—you know—someone who knew what I needed before I said a word; planned surprises reflecting his knowledge of my desires; rescued me from trouble; was crazy about me even without make-up, etc. What I was looking for–but didn’t know it–was God. God knows what I need before I do; He plans extraordinary surprises tailored based upon how He made me; He rescues me from danger I don’t even know about; and He loves me at my ugliest and worst! This is God. He loves me beyond my compression of the word. So what is it like to fall in love with God?

A Bible verse which helped me express the experience of falling in love with God is: “In him we live and move and have our being.” (‭Acts‬ ‭17:28‬a)‬‬ http://bible.com/59/act.17.28.esv As I thought about the experience of being in love with a man, I remembered how my life, indeed, even my thoughts and who I was–revolved around grasping each precious moment with my lover. I planned for him, hoped for him, rearranged my life for him, conformed who I was for him. I “lived, moved and had my being”–in my earthly lover. As I’ve discovered perfect love in God, it has, likewise, transformed me. I never want to be without Him. His love causes me to rearrange my schedule so I’m on His, to plan for special time to meet with Him alone; and to conform my life to please Him. He is the reason for the light in my eyes and the smile on my face. He is the reason I get out of bed in the morning with hope for the new day. I’ve found love that never hurts me and never fails me. God’s love is powerful and compelling. It is in Him that I “live and move and have my being!”

God’s love is pure because He is pure; so to experience it, our heart must be purified from defilement. As we empty our hearts of impurities and fill it with His Word, we begin the journey of experiencing His remarkable love. God’s love is the fountain from which all other love flows.
