Looking Towards L-O-V-E

I got this in an email from a friend of mine a couple of years ago, not really sure why he sent it or why I was asking him to send it, but when I read back through it, I really liked what it had to say and showed me some of what I was doing in that area.

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone – to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved exclusively and thoroughly… But God, to a Christian says, no; not until you’re satisfied and content with being loved by Me alone. I love you, my child. You must discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found. You will never be united with another until you are united with Me – exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning… stop wishing… allow Me to bring it to you. Just keep watching Me expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing that satisfaction knowing that I AM. Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you. You must wait. Don’t be anxious. Don’t look at the things you think you want. You must keep looking off and away, up to Me or you’ll miss what I have to show you.

And then, when you are ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would ever dream. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready, I am working even this minute, to have you both ready at the same time. Until you are satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you, you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with me… and this is true love.

God calls us to love Him first and foremost.  If we love others more than Him, he calls it idolatry.   Matthew 10:37 says “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” That’s harsh, but God is just explaining that He is the only thing that matters. “May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.” 1Thes. 3:5 And when that happens in our life, He will then give us what we need.  “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:27
