Have you ever desired someone so badly that you’ve been willing to rearrange your daily life to make time with that person—even if only for a few moments? Or, you long to be with them so much that this person fills your dreams and pleasantly distracts you during the day? When I remember experiencing this kind of desire, it’s a powerful reminder of how much God desires me. He desires each one of us with more fervor than we’ve ever desired anyone. He proved His desire when He chose to suffer death and hell so we could have a relationship with Him. Jesus said: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John‬ ‭3:16‬) Amazing! God sacrificed more for us than we’ve ever sacrificed for any human relationship! What will we do with such great sacrificial love? Will we reject it? Will we experiment by exalting lesser loves above Him?

God stands ready to love us like we’ve never been loved. Through Jesus, God gave us the greatest love story we could ever live. No one has done as much for us in love as He has. He gave us the gift of a relationship with Him. To have it, we must turn to Him and stop running. When we accept the gift of salvation, God’s gift is planted in our heart. He wants to give us more than just eternal security—He wants us to KNOW Him NOW! Each of us has rejected Him more than we’ve ever been rejected by someone we loved—yet, He still woos us. He’s not looking for our performance, He wants our heart. When our heart is His, we are filled with His Spirit and His love which makes us beautiful, powerful, wise and loving. In Him, we’re all we ever need to be.
