I watched an awesome wedding proposal caught on video. It was elaborate to say the least. She thought she was just going to lunch with a friend. He had her family flown across country as well and even his family was present. He hired 40 professional dancers and had the street in front of the café closed to traffic. Probably the best executed event I’ve ever seen. It was magnificent and obviously this guy loves this gal to go to such lengths to win her over. That’s love.
Oh beloved, this is God! You just thought you were going through life enjoying things here and there. But God was working behind the scenes to win you over! He was wooing you with love songs and even dancing heavenly hosts. He caused all of heaven to call out to you on His behalf. He has worked magnificently and obviously He loves you so much to have gone to such lengths just for you! He went to the cross, despised the shame, rose from the grave and is praying for you 24/7 all the days of your life. Now that’s love.
God loves you and He’s for you. Simple words but played across the screen of life with such beauty and bright lights of love. As far as the eye can see and even farther is the road sign with your name on it! He loved you then, when you weren’t even a glimmer in your parents’ eyes. He loves you now. He loves you. And because He loves you He is for you. Because He is love everything is sifted through His fingers of love. Because He loves you he can be trusted to work all things out for your good and His glory. Say yes to Jesus every day! He is renewing His vows to you each morning. You wake up loved and cherished and anointed for life here on earth and redeemed for a purpose. He calls you lovely and His plans for your life with Him are out of this world. Run to His Word and read the lovely message again and again…and live in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
