For those of you joining us today from the Proverbs 31 devotion today, welcome!
Jesus. Some days just thinking of how perfectly this Man loves me completely blows me away! I just don’t grow tired of rehearsing in my mind and heart that the Creator of this incredible earth is in love with me! Simple ‘ole me! Nothing extraordinary. Nothing that those of this world would think is amazing, yet Psalm 45:11 says “The King is wild for you….” The Message. He says that He is mine and I am His. (Song of Solomon 2:16a) He says that He rejoices over me with singing (Zephaniah 3:17) He says that I am altogether beautiful and He sees no blemish in me. (Song 4:7) To know that Perfection loves Imperfect completely stuns me!
Does any of this have anything to do with me? Obsolutely not! I once thought it did. I once was messed up in the head and heart and thought that what I did influenced how He saw me. But now I know, His unconditional love is just one more thing that makes Him beautiful to me.
Do you know, in the deepest part of your heart, that He feels that exact same way about you? Do you know that when you mess up, He looks down with compassion and not anger? Do you know that His heart for you is that you would be filled to the fullness measure of His perfect love so that you never, ever need to feel alone, rejected or discarded again? The King over all is in love with you; that, my friend, is truly life changing.
With news like this, who can keep quiet? Galatians 6:14 says, “As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (NLT) Oh, that is my heart! To boast, brag, go on and on and on about Him.
We glorify what we are passionate about, says John Piper. Friend, what are you glorifying? Does the thing that has your heart deserve that much attention? Is He your passion or do you struggle with other things that clamor for your heart and your affection? He truly is the only thing that deserves your all.
